E-cards aren’t a novelty anymore – they’re an essential. These days, many of us simply can’t afford the money or the time it takes to go out and look for a conventional birthday card. Even if we could, the market wouldn’t be out there to support us. Traditional greeting card companies are falling into administration in their droves right now and it’s got everything to do with the relentless progression of technology, say experts at the national Greeting Card Association. Unsurprisingly, the e-card industry is flourishing, with more and more people turning to electronic birthday wishes, fathers day sentiments and get well messages every single day.
If you haven’t yet jumped on the e-card bandwagon – it’s definitely time you did. You don’t want to get left behind licking envelopes and buying second class stamps, while the rest of us are choosing and sending greeting cards in minutes, says TechCrunch.com journalist Alexis Tsotis. It is the vast range of possibilities that makes the e-card industry so wonderfully appealing – it’s the opportunity for personalisation. For a very small price, most e-card companies will give you free reign to mix and match templates, images, colours, animations and text captions. Never again will you be stuck with a birthday card that has no relevance to the person you’re planning to give it to. Go on, give e-cards a try. You won’t regret it.
If you’re the type of person who relishes the chance to be creative, only to realise that you’ve got no idea where to start – never fear. Here’s a guide to some of the funniest e-card captions that people have come up with over the years. Feel free to use and claim ownership over as many of these as you like.
