Thursday, November 12th, 2015

What Does Thanksgiving Mean To You?

We are very proud to announce that we have added a brand new animated Thanksgiving ecard to the site for you customise and send this November. Before we present you with the finished ecard, we thought we’d give you a sneak preview of our design and creating process.

As you can see, the storyboard runs through all things Thanksgiving from its origins right up to the cherished traditions of the present day. From the exciting parades to the long journeys home and a huge feast, this new Thanksgiving e card includes every aspect of the holiday. Anyway, enough from us, click the image below and take a look for yourself.

The Punniest Halloween Costumes

Monday, October 26th, 2015

These days, a creative costume is essential for success on Halloween. Pre-packaged outfits and witches hats are fine if you don’t mind turning up at a party wearing the same costume as eight other people. Lucky, if you have a creative idea you don’t have to spend a fortune on something to wear. With a few simple props you can create a funny and clever Halloween costume. To help you out on your quest, we’ve found a few ‘pun’ny ideas that we’d like to share.

Congratulate Their Hard Work

Monday, August 24th, 2015

The last month has seen a lot of nervous students eagerly awaiting results from from the past year of gruesome hard work.

So, whether they did great, or not as well as they’d hoped, it’s time to congratulate them on all the hard work and effort they put in and we have some ecards for you below that are perfect for the occasion.

It’s almost Mother’s Day- a day where we show our gratitude for all the hard work our mother has put in over the years. This gratitude however, cannot be proven with love alone, oh no. It must be proven (and subsequently measured) in the very real form of the ideal gift and card. A gift and card so ideal, it negates 364 days of smug thanklessness.

Let’s face it, it’s a challenge. Finding the perfect gift and card that says just what you want it to say can be oh I don’t know, hard work… to say the least. We must venture out, in to the cold winds, suffer through inside out umbrellas and scour the shops, because she’s worth it (begrudgingly).

Now, we can’t help you out with the gift side of things but we can most certainly help with the card part, oh yes.

So for all those after school activities she took you to that you never had any intention of pursuing, take a look through our Mother’s Day Ecards at Katie’s Cards and find something that’s ideal for her.

 

It’s Grandparent’s Day

Congratulations to the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge on the birth of their baby boy, who is third in line to the throne. Royal baby madness seems to have swept the nation (and indeed the world!) over the past few days and the Katie’s Cards office has been no different!

National Smile Month

Tuesday, June 18th, 2013

This month is National Smile Month, I’m not quite sure who makes up these events but it seems like a good one to acknowledge! We have a selection of ecards that you can send ‘just because’ and we’re sure that they’d bring a smile to anyone’s face. Our ‘thinking of you’ cards are perfect to send to someone who is going through a tough time and our note cards are a great way in which to send someone a little message to brighten up their day.

'Thinking of You' Ecard

‘Thinking of You’ Ecard

We’re also planning to add to our new ‘Wise Words’ category which are appropriate to send at any time of the year. You don’t need to have a special occasion to send a card, in fact, sending one ‘just because’ can often mean so much more.

Tomorrow is Father’s Day!

Saturday, June 15th, 2013

It’s not uncommon for people to forget this holiday (poor dads!) and if you haven’t sent your dad a card yet then don’t panic. If you send one of our Father’s Day e cards it will arrive in your dad’s inbox immediately so you could even send the e card tomorrow morning and your dad would never know…

Alternatively, you can schedule a card today to be sent tomorrow so you can rest assured that it will arrive on time. You can view our full collection of Father’s Day e cards here on the Katie’s Cards website.

Is Father’s Day less important than Mother’s Day?

Thursday, June 13th, 2013

Father’s Day is this Sunday, June 16th, yet will many people be celebrating it? For some reason, it is often treated as second best to Mother’s Day. Many people argue that, since Father’s Day was officially acknowledged more recently than Mother’s Day, it lacks historical and religious significance. Others argue that it is a purely commercial holiday.

In Thailand, Father's Day is celebrated on December 5th - the current King's birthday. Traditionally, people give their fathers a Canna flower to show their appreciation.

However, Father’s Day was first celebrated approximately four thousand years ago and, since then, it has been celebrated all over the world. We think it’s important to carry on this legacy of showing our dads how much we appreciate them.

So, if you can’t be with your dad this Sunday, why not send him a Father’s Day ecard and let him know that you’re thinking of him.

“Where there is love, there is life.’

Thursday, May 16th, 2013

Our ecard of the day comes from our new ‘Wise Words’ collection. This card features a wonderful quote from Gandhi:

The collection only features two ecards at the moment but we will be adding to it over the coming months. You can view the collection here and, if you have a favourite quote that you’d like to be able to send as a card then we would love to hear from you! Simply comment on this post, email us at katie@katiescards.com, tweet us on our Twitter page or write on our Facebook wall and we’ll be sure to get back to you.

Mother’s Day Celebrations Around the World

Friday, May 10th, 2013

This Sunday, Mother’s Day will not only be celebrated in the United States but also in many other countries around the world – from Brazil to the Bahamas, from Hong Kong to Switzerland, and from Tonga to Malaysia.

Gardener Ecard

The origins of Mother’s Day differ from country to country. In Bolivia, for example, the day commemorates a specific battle during the Bolivian War of Independence during which many female fighters were killed. In Israel, it honours Henrietta Szold who rescued Jewish children from the Nazis. In France, Mother’s Day celebrations stem from the early 1900s when the government was concerned with falling birth rates and so it praised the mothers of large families.

Around the world, mothers are treated to flowers, gifts and cards. If you want to make your mum feel extra special this Sunday, then send her one of our lovely Mother’s Day ecards and it will reach her instantly, wherever she may be in the world.

New Ecard Category Announced!

Tuesday, April 30th, 2013

We are delighted to announce that we have a new ecard category on the Katie’s Cards website! Our new ‘Wise Words’ ecard collection, which we will continue to add to over the coming months, is very different from anything we have done before. These ecards feature some wonderful quotations from the likes of Gandhi, Twain and Thoreau, to name but a few.

If you know of someone in need of a little guidance and inspiration, these ‘notes on a postcard’ style ecards are just the thing. Although the first two in the collection are both about love, future designs will cover a wide range of themes. You can view the full collection by clicking here.

Earth Day Island

Friday, April 26th, 2013

Though many of you will have received the Earth Day ecard from us on April 22nd, it certainly isn’t a message which is only appropriate for one day of the year. The story and graphics, put together by our animators, tell the tale of a mariner who has been shipwrecked on a desert island. But his delight soon turns to despair after he manages to use up all of the resources in the micro-environment…

Earth Day still

 

In addition to being able to find the ecard on our website, you can also find it on our Katie’s Cards YouTube channel. Feel free to share it with your family and friends too if you’d like to spread the message!

Happy Earth Day!

Monday, April 22nd, 2013

Happy Earth Day!

Earth Day is one of the most important days in the ‘eco’ calendar, with over one billion people taking part in Earth Day celebrations and campaigns around the world. We’ve released our first ever Earth Day ecard which you can view here on the Katie’s Cards website.

We’ve also made a donation to the Plant a Billion campaign in honour of Earth Day – you can find out more about brilliant campaign here.
