Age is Just a Number

Wednesday, January 29th, 2014

When birthdays are just around the corner, kids love telling anyone who’ll listen how old they are.

And although this changes ever so slightly as we get older, we want to share in the excitement of your little one’s milestone birthday with the introduction of our age-specific range of ecards for children.

If you’ve been following our blog, you might recall when announced the introduction of this new selection and the sneak previews and sketches we uploaded during the design process.

Well, we’re very pleased to announce that this range is now up and running in the birthday ecard category and available for members to preview and send.

Take look at the third in our range of age specific ecards which uses simple shapes and block colours for the greeting, as well as a catchy soundtrack:

The ‘3rd Birthday Fish’ ecard features a school of brightly coloured fish as they swim into frame, letting out air bubbles as they go. One of the bubbles contains the number three, which grows in size to create part of the ‘Happy Birthday’ message.

Since added, the age-specific range for children is already proving popular and we’re now looking to extend this range to cover ‘special age’ ecards for both teenagers and adults in the very near future…

…Meaning, soon there will be no escape from those annual reminders of just how old we’re all getting!

Until then, we hope you enjoy taking a look at the new designs.
