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.

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.

Do Something Grand

Friday, September 11th, 2015

This Sunday is National Grandparents Day; a day when grandparents are recognised and celebrated for their contribution to the family. Sometimes overlooked for all the love and hard work they put in over the years, this is the perfect opportunity to celebrate them and show them how appreciated they are.

Long Live the Ecard

Thursday, August 6th, 2015

We saw an interesting article in the paper today that explained how friends and family are opting to send online greetings such as ecards to loved ones as a more creative option for Birthdays. Now we may be a little biased, but with fun, engaging animations on offer for all ages, with the option to customise with your own message, we’re inclined to agree.

So with this in mind we thought we’d unveil our top 3 most popular Birthday ecards just incase you’re looking for a little inspiration. Click on the images to watch the animated versions.

Say ‘thank you’ to your guests

Thursday, August 1st, 2013

It’s the middle of wedding season and so much work goes into planning a wedding that when the big day is over, it can be hard for the brides and grooms to know what to do next (after the honeymoon of course)! Saying ‘thank you’ to all the guests that made their wedding day special is usually one of the first jobs the newlyweds face.
