Free eCards: The Top Ten Sites

By

Looking for a free card you can send to friends and family online? There's a lot of websites out there that offer great free personalized greetings with quality graphics, and here are my pics for the best on the Web.

1. Rattlebox

Rattlebox offers a lot more than the typical greeting you might see on most sites - it's all video here. Simply select a video you like, personalize it, and send.

2. Yahoo Greetings

I've used Yahoo Greetings for years. You can choose to sign up for the more expensive cards, or you can just do what I do and scan for the little "free" text under most of these publications. Funny, birthday, Christmas, and more for any occasion.

3. someecards

If you're looking for an irreverent, hilarious, and sometimes off-color greeting to send to someone, then someecards is your best bet.

4. Postcard.fm

Customize and send your own free online cards with your own images, music (mp3 files only), and messages.

5. WrongCards

These are not the run of the mill greetings that you'll find here - WrongCards is full of silly, tongue in cheek messages that you can send to friends and family.

6. Hipster Cards

Lots of vintage, "hip" cards here with great designs and images; includes plenty of humor from high right down to the lowest of the low brow.

7. Smilebox

Smilebox is one of my favorite spots for free cards to send on the Web. You can choose from hundreds of interesting designs, add your own photos, videos, music, and messages, and then email it, blog it, or print it.

8. Pingg

Simple and stylish, with many designs available. You can use Pingg not only for free greetings, but also for online invitations, announcements, and party planning.

9. MushyGushy

Select a card or animated video at MushyGushy, and then you can upload a head shot of you or someone else to complete the ecard. It's a fun way to personalize your message.

10. eCardica

eCardica has a wide variety of free ecards available, anything from Fruits and Vegetables to Ancient Cities to Famous Quotes. Most of the cards on the site are free; they also have announcement, birthday, special occasion, holiday, love, and many more varieties. If you'd like to become a member of eCardica, you gain access to a lot more fun tools and services, such as a reminders service, contacts, and calendar.
