My husband comes from a large family. He has 13 siblings and most of them have 3 or 4 children of their own. One year (when I was still honoring the New Year’s resolution tradition) I resolved to send birthday cards to each family member for their birthday. I did really well for the first three months and then started falling behind and eventually gave up. Having failed so miserably at honoring the birthdays of our family members, I’ve never even attempted to do it for our many friends who are located in several different states and countries (and who, because they are mostly military families, move and change their addresses every 2 to 3 years).
American Greetings eCards Makes It Easier To Remember Birthdays
But I do love the idea of honoring the people I care about on the day that celebrates their arrival in this world. Many times I’ve thought to myself, “I wish there was an easier way to acknowledge the birthdays of these individuals I adore that I could actually manage to do consistently.” Actually, my real thoughts are more along the lines of “I wish I was more organized. Why can’t someone do all the hard work for me but let me get credit for being thoughtful?”
American Greeting eCards might just be the solution I’ve been waiting for. These eCard greeting cards aren’t just generic digital cards. They have video eCard greetings that can be personalized. I started my search in their Birthday greetings.
I loved the Slice of Paradise video so I chose it to customize for my friend Liz. I just missed her birthday for the second year in a row so I’m hoping that this public confession and adorable video will help make up for the oversight at least a little. To customize the video, I just had to use the drop down menus to choose the options I wanted.
Video eCard Greetings
Other video eCard greetings allow you to upload photos or voice recordings. They also provide a variety of images or voices from which to choose if you don’t want to upload your own. You can still customize what the characters say. It’s such a quick and easy way to create a truly custom greeting for anyone.
I like all the options I have for sending birthday greetings, but birthday eCards aren’t your only option. Almost all of the cards can be customized for holidays, anniversaries, and other special events.
I also like that the eCards can be posted to Facebook, shared via e-mail, or sent to mobile phones. My friends’ mailing addresses might change often, but their Facebook accounts and e-mail addresses rarely do.
Schedule eCard Greetings A Year In Advance
Best of all, I can schedule all of my eCard greetings up to a year in advance so that I’ll never miss a birthday again. And for the really special people in my life (i.e. those who are wondering when the “real” present is coming), American Greetings gives me the option to attach a gift card to the eCard.
