I’d like to blame it on the ever climbing postage rates or trying to be more environmentally friendly but that would be a lie. The truth is I suck at sending paper cards.
Ecards I can do but recently stopped because some of my not so computer savvy family were using ecard sites that were really covers for malware and viruses. These days, I post a quick “Happy Birthday” status update on their Facebook wall. It gets the job done but its not very pretty or personal but at least its virus free.
I think I found my compromise, Kisseo eCards, although truthfully I use the Kisseo eCard Facebook app more because all of the people I send cards to (if I actually sent paper cards) are on Facebook.
Kisseo has over 5,000 cards for any occasion. You can use the app to send and receive cards for free. However if you pay to become a premium member (paying via Facebook credits), you can send select from all of the available cards from every category and send an unlimited number of cards. I think the premium cards are cooler because they have sound and are animated. My favorite so far is the card I sent to my best friend that has
Birthday on the piano. We dog moms stick together! Chihuahuas
If you are into Facebook games like Husband, Kisseo has a game component too. When you send Kisseo cards to your friends on Facebook, you become that person’s guardian angel. If someone else sends your friend more cards, they become your friend’s new guardian angel. I don’t have the patience for Facebook games (please don’t send me game requests. I don’t play them.) so I’m using the app the send cute and virus free ecards to friends in lieu of paper cards.

Further Disclosure: I really do stink about sending cards out on time if at all. Sorry Mom and Dad I know you raised me better than that.
