eCards With Attitude
Yes, I know, I know, nothing beats the hand-written note and greeting card to show someone that you – really – care about them. In our electronic age, affixing a stamp to an envelope and popping it in the mailbox is the ultimate demonstration of love. But, let’s get real. I don’t always have the perfect card on hand, or the person’s address, or… And neither do you. So, sometimes, there has been room for wishes-via-email. I adopted ecards some years ago and then abandoned them. I couldn’t cope with all the “free” ecard sites that were either really spammy or incredibly cheesy. Then, I fell onto someecards, for the moments “When you care enough to hit Send”. It’s not for everyone, or for every occasion, I admit. But I you have friends, family & colleagues that welcome your acerbic sense of humor mixed with a good dose of politically incorrectness, well, this is the ecard site for you.
I sent this “mild” card to my dad for his birthday just last week. Before you judge me, know that I have a good reason: he lives in the DR Congo where there is actually no mail service. And yes, I want to invite him to be more present on Facebook so that we can stay in touch more efficiently. So, this one was perfect:
And then I love these, for specific occasions or “just because”. Most are perfectly inappropriate and that’s their charm.
And, too bad I’m not in the market, because their Flirting cards are just wrong. In a great way.
Someecards also has a clever little iPhone app that you can purchase for the modest sum of $0.99. An, it has invites too (my favorite here). BTW, when did the noun invitation morph into invite? Oh, and if you’re clever enough, you can even create your own ecard.
Just make up for all the sarcasm with a nice little closing line, like ” Hey, at least I’m thinking of you!”
If you do make up your own someecard, send it to us. We want to see it!
