Corporate Ecards – A Boost for Your Business

Introducing Motivational Ecards

We’ve all heard that saying, ‘a picture can say a thousand words.’ But we think the right words alongside the right image can help you to express yourself clearly and provide the edge your employees need to succeed.

Inspirational ecard: ‘It Always Seems Impossible Until It’s Done,’ Nelson Mandela

Recently, we unveiled our Motivational ecards for business use.

These Motivational company e cards utilise inspirational quotes such as: ‘Success is walking from failure to failure with no loss of enthusiasm – Winston Churchill.’

The category also includes brief but pertinent words of wisdom, such as, ‘Everything is Possible’ and ‘Make it Happen’.

Reach for the stars – ‘Retro’ Make It Happen Motivational Ecard

The retro designs either incorporate an image which represents the phrase (the motivational message ‘Stay Focused’, for example, is displayed below a pair of bespectacled eyes) or use a trendy chalkboard background and font.

Send a Clear Message – ‘Retro’ Stay Focused Corporate Ecard

This category expansion is part of our ongoing strategy to diversify the range of cards we have on offer on our website, beyond the usual and business Birthday cards.

We think that ecards can be used for so much more than just your annual corporate Christmas e card or Birthday greeting.

Our new motivational designs, in particular, have the potential to increase productivity in the workplace – giving staff and employees that extra boost to morale to help them achieve their goals.

In addition to choosing ready-made designs which can be customised with a logo and a personal message on behalf of your company, organisations can commission a bespoke business ecard for any purpose.

Easter Egg Hunting with Ecard Mint

With Easter on the way as a special Springtime treat with thought we share some geeky search engine secrets or ‘Easter Eggs’ as they’re affectionately known – provided by the good and the great at Google.

There are quite a few of these, and they’re added to almost as quickly as we add new card designs to our site (speaking of which, have you seen our new Humor ecard category for business?) …so here are just a few of our favourites Easter treats:

Go back in Time

When you enter, ‘Google in 1998’ into the search bar prepare to be magically transported back to the time of dial-up connections and ropey graphics as Google presents a very basic but nevertheless recognisable search page from the late 90s.

Search with the Swedish Chef

We all know that Google serves many different countries and allows users all over the world to search in their own language. Yet it might surprise even the most internet savvy to learn that even The Muppets’ very own Swedish Chef is catered for. Seek out the special Bork Bork Bork search page here.

Use the force to beam me up

If you’re a Sci-fi fan, it’s probably in your own interest to head on over to YouTube right away.

For wannabe Jedis, a search for ‘Use the force, Luke’ will cause the results drift on the page and every so often fly around the screen.

But if you’ve always been more of a Trekkie than a member of the Rebel Alliance, try typing ‘Beam me up, Scotty’ and watch the results appear in true classic Star Trek transporter style.

Search for Blink HTML

Search for Blink HTML in Google and keep your eyes peeled to see if you notice anything different about the search results.

That’s One Small Step for Google…

Pop over to the Kennedy Space Center for a quick visit and you’ll find that when you use the peg man in Street View, he’s magically transformed into an astronaut.

To infinity and beyond!

So there you have it. And if you find yourself in need of some more procrastination tools, there’s plenty more where that came from – not least in our very own animated ecard section where you’ll find plenty of addictive and interactive games to send on behalf of your business.
