The Perfect Dad, ‘NEW’ Fathers Day E card.

Wednesday, April 27th, 2011

Just uploaded our latest creation for Father’s Day, it is still quite a few weeks away (actually this year Father’s Day is on Sunday June 19th)¬† but we have completed this one nice and early. The idea for this Fathers Day Ecard came from 1950 advertisements, we thought it would be good to create a slight twist on the concept of a perfect Dad, where he still seems to have some very human attributes.

What are you up to this Easter Weekend?

Wednesday, April 20th, 2011

We are all looking forward to the long weekend, spending a bit of time with family and friends and celebrating Easter. I have already packed all of the chocolate eggs for the kids as we are going away for a few days holiday. This year has been very busy so far working on the new e cards for katiescards.com and I do feel that I need a little break. So I am really looking forward to enjoying long country walks, Easter activities, pub lunches and evenings around the fire reading a good book and spending time with my loved ones.

What plans do you have for the spring Easter break? I would be interested to know what you are up to, and how you choose to celebrate Easter. Be it a quite weekend at home or a short break away, have a lovely long weekend, whatever you are up to. Please remeber to send one of our Easter Ecards, there are nine different styles so hopefully something for everyone, and have a great time.

Ecards Are Perfect For Easter

Tuesday, April 12th, 2011

The big events through the year that have become most popular with Ecards senders have typically been Christmas, Birthdays and Valentines Day. One annual event that seems to have become overlooked is Easter, but it is fact the perfect occasion to send an Easter E card. It is a time of year where we think about and spend time with family and friends, and all those close to us, especially the small ones in our lives who look forward to receiving yummy chocolate Easter eggs.

Companies migrate to sending Corporate Ecards

Monday, April 11th, 2011

Katie’s Cards have become well know for the great value personal animated ecard membership , but we also offerEcard¬† service to companies and organizations. Over the past three years we have created hundreds of Christmas E cards for companies of all sizes, from one man bands to household name corporations, and every year the demand just seems to grow. They are a very environmentally friendly and cost effective way of sending out Seasonal Greetings, especially if their your mailing list is hundreds or thousands of contacts.

In 2010 we launched a new section of the website, to allow companies to have the opportunity of sending their company Christmas Ecard through the site, select a static or animated ecard, upload their logo, personal message, URL and mailing list and for a relatively low cost, send their personalized Ecard to their entire mailing list. At present there are 25 static and 16 animated Ecards to choose from, and we plan to add many more for Christmas 2011.

We also have plans to extend the service beyond just Christmas E cards, rolling it out to meet business needs throughout the whole year, providing the opportunity to send business e cards for the launch of a new product or service, to notify clients about a move to new premisis or to reward and motivate staff for their work or to send them a greeting on their Birthday. There are unlimited applications of corporate email messages with a creative, animated element. There are numerous events and occasions where a corporate ecard is the perfect solution.

Along with the ‘automated’ option we can create bespoke and custom built ecards to fit any brief.

An Anglo-Saxon legend – Easter bunny and eggs?

Tuesday, April 5th, 2011

Have you ever wondered why the Easter bunny and eggs are seen together on Easter Ecards?

Well, an Anglo-Saxon legend tells how the Saxon goddess Eostre found a wounded bird and transformed it into a hare, so that it could survive the Winter. The hare found it could lay eggs, so it decorated these each Spring and left them as offering to the goddess.

We have created a new e card for you this Easter, a fun e card which the little ones will love! No egg laying hares I’m afraid, just a troop of dancing rabbits and eggs. Take a peek at our Easter e cards and there are nine different designs and styles of cards so you are sure to find something to suit all your family and friends.
