By Jason Terry, talking about saving time, postage and paper by sending a JibJab eCard instead of a paper card.
Yes friends, it’s that time of year again. Time to come up with a mailing list. Design a holiday card. Pay to have it printed and embossed with your signature so you don’t have to fill out hundreds of cards by hand. Go to the post office and buy a metric ton of stamps to mail the cards. Address the cards (which usually results in a long discussion about the efficiency of printing mailing labels versus the personal impact of hand writing the address.) And then mail them by dropping them off at your local post office. It’s so much fun, right?!?!?
People don’t talk about it often… but my general impression is that a lot of companies dread the process of creating and sending holiday cards.
This year, I’m seriously thinking about sending an eCard instead of doing a traditional holiday card.
Click on the picture or link below to see the “It’s Beginning to Look a Lot Like Christmas” eCard I made on JibJab.com.
JibJab.com is $18 per year for access to all of their interactive cards. JibJab eCards are easy to set up and send in an email, blog or to social media websites. They’re more interactive than a traditional card. And I think they might make a stronger impression than a traditional card (or at least a similar impression).
But for some reason, I’m still struggling with the idea of skipping traditional cards this year. I don’t want to offend anyone. So please let me know what you think. Is your business sending traditional cards this year? If you are involved in the process, do you dread it or enjoy it? Do you think sending an eCard is a good idea?
