Tips on how to design an eCard for your business

Include your logo in your eCard design
This is one time of year to place your brand at the forefront of your clients’ minds. Unless you have a terrible logo why waste an opportunity?
Add your signature to increase engagement

Experiment with different text size options
Want to personalise your design? Choose your own text styles, sizes and colours throughout the pages of your eCard.
Choosing the right eCard design template
It is important that you choose an eCard that is consistent with your brand or the message you are trying to convey. e.g. Don’t choose a Santa image if it’s a corporate tone you are looking for.
Include your social media links to increase followers
