Stamp Out Postal Costs with Ecards

Recently, the Guardian reported that Royal Mail share prices had dropped rapidly following the privatisation of the postal service last year.

The article also reports a drop in the sending of letters and cards in favour of online methods of communication.

And with the recent rise in stamp prices, meaning that a book of 12 first class stamps now costs £7.44, it’s not hard to see why.

When you tally the number of Birthdays, annual occasions like Christmas, Mother’s Day and Father’s Day along with one-off celebrations such as Weddings and Births that occur in the calendar, annual membership with Katie’s Cards at £7.50 (just 6 pence more than a book of stamps) seems very reasonable – especially considering that this allows the sending of unlimited ecards to friends and relatives all year round.

But we’re not just advocates of ecards because they save money or because they’re kind to the planet – even though that IS another reason why we love them so much – but they also save time and worrying too:

You can send ecards to individuals or to many. You can send them near and far in an instant. Or, schedule for a later date if that suits.

The point is you don’t have to wonder whether your Auntie’s Get Well Soon card got lost in the post or whether your brother’s Birthday card will arrive by air mail to Australia in time.

So if you find the time, head over to our ecard categories and consider stamping out postal costs for good.

We’ve got a great selection of animated ecards, including some lesser-spotted greetings for occasions such as Canada Day, Ramadan and Grandparents Day
