Personalize your Ecards, It only takes a minute!

Do you remember the last ecard you received? Probably not. If you do, then what specifically do you remember about it?

Chances are you remember it because it was personalized. With a note. Or the sender’s voice. Or picture. Or maybe all of those. Now, there’s no question that our free ecards are pretty cool by themselves. That’s why you send them! But what makes each of our ecards special is not what we put into it. It’s how you personalize it!

Follow these quick tips to personalize each and every ecard you send. It’s what makes the difference between another ecard and a message from your heart!

1. Add a personal note. Even if it’s just one line. Address the person you are sending the ecard to by name. Even something like ‘Have a wonderful year ahead’ or ‘I hope your birthday is as special as you are’, or ‘Lots of love and hugs from…’might suffice. Your personal note reflects your feelings or wishes and brings the ecard alive. 

2. Add a picture. We all have hundreds, maybe thousands of them. Digital pictures. So, why not share one with your ecard? Adding a picture instantly personalizes your ecard. A picture of you with your family. Or just one that reminds the recipient of you, the good times you shared or something funny. Whatever it is, it will only take a few seconds to add one, but it will bring more joy than you may realize. So, the next time you send an ecard, be sure to click on Add a photo! This feature is available with most of our ecards.

3. Add voice.  Remember the first time you were away from home or separated from a loved one? The first time you spoke over phone, you probably said to each other ‘It’s so good to hear your voice!’ The voice of a loved makes us feel better even when we’re across the globe. To use the Add voice feature available on many of our ecards, all you have to do is use your computer’s mic and sound recorder to record and store a short voice greeting, poem or song. Then simply attach it with your ecard to cheer up your loved one on his special day. Very few of you seem to be using this incredibly cool, yet simple feature. What’s keeping you? Let us know! 

We assure you, these three simple personalization steps will be completely worth it!

Free Ecards Add Photos

Filed under: Free Ecards Help — Tags: , — ecards @ 5:21 pm offers a lot of free animated e-cards, but what if you want to personalize things a bit? 

            You can easily add photos to most e-cards on the site; and of course, it’s free.  Just go to, and pick your favorite card.

            After you click on the card and it’s finished loading, click “Play” to start the animation.  See in the bottom right-hand side of the card, where a button says, “Click to add photo and voice”?  You guessed it: click!

            You’ll be taken to a screen with a stock-photo near the top of the page, and below that there’s a button that says, “Upload Image.”  Yup: click it, too.

            After clicking through the user agreement, basically saying you agree not to do anything obscene or offensive to the person you’re sending the card to, you’re taken to a file-upload browser.  Just scan through your files and find the picture you want to use, and click “Open”.  You’re back on the main page now, and that stock photo will be replaced by the picture you’ve chosen.

            Then just proceed in the same way you would with any other card, by filling out the information for the person you’re sending the card to, at the bottom of the page.  When you’re done, you can click “Preview” to see your card.  Basically, the card will play, just as it normally would, but after the animation your chosen image will be displayed, as well.  And now, just click “Send,” and you’re done!
