Everyone enjoys being remembered on birthdays, anniversaries or holidays. The Jacquie Lawson website allows you to personalize and send as many entertaining animated e-mail cards as you wish to anywhere in the world for just one yearly fee of $12 a year, or $18 for two years.
What does the Jacquie Lawson e-mail card website provide?
There are charming animated birthday cards, holiday cards, and special occasion cards for all ages. Choose your e-mail card from the collection for each holiday and preview it to see if you like the musical accompaniment and the animation. When you have chosen the card, put in your message and greeting, then choose when the card should be sent.
All of your greeting cards can be organized and sent by this website. The address book keeps the addresses of people you have sent cards to in the past. The card history will list for you the cards you have sent and the dates, so you don’t repeat your favorite card to the same person. Choose the date when the card should be sent. An e-mail will be sent to you when the card is sent and another one when the card has been viewed.
What are the advantages of the Jacquie Lawson e-mail card website?
This website saves money, as the membership is the price of just a few cards bought in a store and sent through the mail. If you send cards overseas as I do, you really save money on postage, especially at holiday time. Using e-mail cards is good for the environment, as there is no paper, transportation, or manufacturing energy used.
Sending e-mail cards saves so much time, as there is no need to go shopping or get the card ready to mail. It does take time to set up the card on line and write a nice message, but once you get familiar with the process it is easy.
I really like being able to prepare the cards well in advance so I don’t forget to send it. For each card I list the date I want it to be sent, so I can do all my cards for a month or more at a time. It is really helpful at holiday times, such as Thanksgiving or Christmas, when I can do my cards ahead of time and have them all ready to go on the day I choose.
The list of pending cards helps if you forget whether or not you have prepared a card for a particular person or occasion. I write the initials JL next to the person’s name on my calendar so I know I have the card ready to go. Once you add in the birthdays of people on your address list, Jacquie Lawson will send you an e-mail reminder ahead of time so no one will be forgotten.
The recipient of the card can send an e-mail response after viewing the card, so I often get a message of thanks after the card has been viewed, which is a nice plus.
What are the disadvantages of the Jacquie Lawson e-mail greeting cards?
These cards aren’t practical for people who don’t have access to a computer. However, my auntie who doesn’t have a computer at home enjoys seeing the animated card when she visits her son’s house. I do send her a paper card in the mail as well so that one arrives on time.
People who save cards in scrapbooks or baby books may also need a paper card. I do know a few people who consider anything done by computer to be impolite, so I send them a paper card. The e-mail cards are harder to share, as they can’t be put in a card holder or lined up on the mantelpiece to show off.
Is it worth signing up for a membership for Jacquie Lawson e-mail greeting cards?
I signed up for this website because I loved the animated Christmas card my cousin sent me, which had decorations which magically appeared as I clicked on stars, and snow which started to fall when I clicked on the sky. Some of the cards tell a delightful story by just watching, while others are interactive.
Some of the cards I have sent have been so popular that they have been saved, to be shared and watched over and over. The Easter card I sent to a two year old has been saved for months on her grandmother’s computer, and every time the little one goes to the house she asks them to turn on the computer so she can watch the story of the baby chicks again.
These cards save money, time and energy, and are good for the environment, but that isn’t the only reason for signing up for this service. The cards are very entertaining and people enjoy them. There are lots of other e-mail card services, including free ones, but the quality and variety of cards and services offered by Jacquie Lawson are well worth the small annual fee.
Sign up now in time to send Halloween cards. Your friends and family of all ages will enjoy them.
