What Makes the Perfect Christmas eCard?

What Makes the Perfect Christmas eCard?

Let’s face it. We’ve all received paper Christmas cards from colleagues and loved ones, only for them to be thrown out after a couple of days. What a waste! Not to mention the (very avoidable) impact this has on the environment. 

So, why not think outside the box this holiday season by sending out a batch of merry Christmas eCards instead?  

But what exactly makes the perfect Christmas eCard? Follow below for our guidance… 

Make it personal 

Similar to how you would with any Christmas card, make it personal to the recipient (or recipients). 

With eCards, there’s so much opportunity when creating a Christmas card that’s more personalised. For example, you can choose the imagery, the message, the music and much more – but we’ll get into that later.  

A great example of creating a more thoughtful digital Christmas eCard is tailoring your message or adding images of the recipients for a personal touch! 

Tailor your message to your recipients 

Making the perfect Christmas eCard means getting your message right. And, of course, how your team talks to one another may be different to how you all speak to clients!

When creating a custom Christmas eCard with us, you’ll have the option to add a pre-written message should you wish to. It’s a great option if you plan on sending it out to many people. 

Alternatively, if you prefer to write your own message but struggle with what to say, don’t worry – you aren’t alone! And contrary to popular belief, you don’t always have to play it safe by sticking to generic messaging!

We’ve recently written an article on the most popular unusual Christmas messages that are perfect for inclusion in Christmas eCards. Click here to find out what those are! 

Bring your cards to life 

As mentioned above, animation features are a great way to create a batch of Christmas eCards that include more memorable and unique messages. We’ll use our animation packages as a prime example of how to bring your cards to life. 

Here at eCard Shack, you’ll find an abundance of options to choose from that showcase your personalised animation, and you get to decide where exactly on the card you want it to go. 

For example, some may prefer their front cover to feature fun Christmas-themed animations of their team’s faces, while others may opt for a standardised yet tasteful animated Christmas display to wish clients a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year. 

Animated Christmas eCards can be as personal or as generalised as you desire. However, in the context of creating the perfect Christmas eCard – this detail will make your batch stand out from the crowd this holiday season! 

Customise it until you’re satisfied 

Don’t play it safe. For the best experience, customise your Christmas eCards to your heart’s content! 

At eCard Shack, we’ve added loads of creative ways you can customise your very own batch of eCards. 

Whether that’s by adding your company logo, using animation, or adding live website links, you’ll benefit from a host of options to choose from with eCards over traditional Christmas cards.

Add a Christmas bop 

If you’re looking for a great way to boost morale around Christmas, adding a seasonal tune is a great way to do so. 

Whether you’d prefer Christmas carols for a traditional touch or something a little more cheerful to get your peers excited about the festive season, it’s entirely up to you! 

Remember, creating the perfect Christmas eCard is subjective, so you’ll have free rein on what that means. And when you choose eCard Shack, you’ll have access to a music library bursting with dozens of seasonal tracks. Win-win!
