See ya on the Net,
E-mail greeting cards are fun and easy to send, and despite a move toward subscriber-only sites, still available for free. There are online cards for nearly every occasion and to suit all tastes, but remember, many people do not consider an e-mail card a proper substitute for a snail mail one, so know your audience and use judgement.
123 Greetings has lots of cutesy cards, all free, organized into nearly a hundred different categories. Cards can be customized with your message and choice of music, and can be scheduled to be sent up to sixty days in advance. Special features include an extensive calendar of offbeat holidays (April 12 is Hot Dog Day) and the ability to create a card from any image on the Web. If your family photos are already online, this is a very nice feature.
American Greetings offers both free and members-only cards. Free cards include Just Because, Friendship, Love & Dating, and Inspire & Encourage. As is customary with sites that offer paid memberships, all event-related cards such as birthdays, anniversaries, and Mother’s Day, are only available to paying subscribers. Best clicks are the free, personalized printable cards and projects, which you’ll find under the Create & Print tab at the top of the home page.
What is a Beat Great? A mini music video to send to your friends. Think MTV via email, and you’ll get the picture. Featured musicians include a wide range of styles, so you are sure to find an artist you like. Genres include pop, jazz, classic rock, Christian, country, hip hop and nineteen versions of Happy Birthday (listed under Musical Expressions.) As is common with popular music, some parents may find some of the selections unsuitable for their families.
