We’ve all had those times when we have forgotten someone’s birthday or another important date. Luckily if you have access to the internet (and the recipient does as well) you can send a quick card and they can receive it on the same day.
These are virtual greeting cards of course, but there is no doubt they can come in extremely useful. One of the best things about them (other than the fact they’re free) is that they are easy to customise according to your wishes. For instance you can pop the name of the recipient on them if you like, and in many cases you can also write messages to go inside the card.
The easiest way to find some good sites that let you send free e-cards is to search on Google for them. Be careful of the sites you visit though; if you use Norton or McAfee protection you should see a red cross beside any sites that aren’t good to visit. Watch out for the green tick and you should be fine.
One reputable company you can try is Blue Mountain. This is quite a well known card company that also produces cards you can buy. There is a free trial on offer at http://www.bluemountain.com so watch out for it. It could be suitable for you.
Another site worth looking at is Regards, at www.regards.com. This is a good site and it is chock full with all kinds of different e-cards to send for all occasions. Obviously you don’t want to forget the notable dates in your calendar but it’s good to know you have another option if time does creep up on you unannounced!
Having access to free e-cards can also be useful if you just want to send a free greeting to your loved one. Perhaps they’ve had a bad day and you just want to cheer them up a bit? You can do just that with an e-card that has more than just a message attached to it. Some of them are animated and are guaranteed to raise a smile or two as the recipient watches them.
So watch out for all kinds of sites offering free greeting cards online. The more you look at the better chance you have of finding one or two you really enjoy. Then you will always have them at the tip of your fingers when you need them.
