All the latest ecard designs and updates about our newest categories all available to view via the Ecard Mint blog.

The Coronavirus and Ecards

As the world is struggling to grapple with the coronavirus pandemic, we all still need to stay in contact with Family and friends, probably now more than ever.

Many countries including the United Kingdom have gone into lockdown which requires citizens to stay at home and only go out for essentials and emergencies. Life goes on and there is still the need to send greeting cards, therefore Ecards are the best and safest solution. Free Ecards can be sent online from your home without the need to venture out to shops to purchase printed cards, nor out again to post them. There were also suggestions that the Covid 19 virus can survive on card and cardboard, according to sciencedaily.com it can be actively carried for up to 24 hours on cardboard.

The last thing anyone would want would be to send their friends or family the virus on a printed greeting card, so why not send an Ecard instead?

We have just added two new Ecard categories, Sympathy Ecards to send to the recently bereaved and Thinking of You Ecards to send for many reasons or just to say ‘Hello’. These of both free Ecard categories, as are 80% of the Ecard designs on our website. Birthday Ecards, Christmas Ecards and New Year Ecards require a small fee to send, but there are over 800 free Ecards to send as many times as you like.

Little Ghost Halloween Ecard

Just in time for the spookiest night of the year, we have just added a new Halloween Ecard to the site. The design features a friendly little ghost who hovers around and ‘Wooo-hooos!’ a fair amount, it has been created with younger viewers in mind.

Some Halloween Ecards can be quite frightening and scary for youngsters, so this is the prefect Egreeting to send. It does convey a Halloween atmosphere, so they will be included in the fun and festivities without being too scared.

We do of course have a range of scarier and spookier Ecards in the collection if required.

 

Our New Turkey Breakout Christmas Ecard is Almost Here!

It’s that time of the year again.

Our new Turkey Breakout e-greeting is almost ready.

Following on from our series of Turkey Breakout Company Christmas Ecards, this new animated is in the final stage of production and will be added to the site in early November.

Our corporate Thanksgiving e-card category is also home to seasonal variants of the Turkey Breakout series for US customers to send to employees, clients and business partners to celebrate the start of holiday season.

This series of ecards follows two hapless turkeys as they attempt to escape the fate of a prime spot on the Christmas dinner table.

The narrative of this design differs slightly from previous incarnations as the story meets back up with the turkeys after a successful breakout attempt. But even as free range poultry, these two are walking disaster areas.

Here’s the story in a nutshell:

On the run, the turkeys spy a couple of penguins skating gracefully across a lake. Impressed, they each don a pair of skates and decide to imitate their avian counterparts – with calamitous consequences.

If you’re eager to see the completed product, look out for our announcement of the new card on the Ecard Mint blog with a link to the animation.

Until then, take a look at the following design previews to get an idea of how our latest Xmas e card for business will look:

Dancing Elves – New Christmas Ecard for your Business

Taking the lead from Santa’s little helpers, at Ecard Mint we’re already getting ready for the Christmas rush. But, whilst the elves are tinkering with toys in the workshop we’ve been busy in our studio devising new corporate e cards ahead of the festive season.

Wish Good ‘Elf to Your Colleagues and Clients

Our latest company Christmas ecard creation is a quirky animation involving a troop of dancing elves as they merrily jig to a jazzy rendition of Jingle Bells, whilst revealing multi-lingual holiday messages:

Preview Our Latest Christmas and New Year E Cards

It seems ridiculous to be talking about Christmas at the start of September, let alone New Year. But at Ecard Mint we spend quite a bit of our time in the months leading up to these big annual events creating and adding new designs to our catalogue to ensure that we have a great range for businesses to choose from.

And so, whilst they might not be needed until the end of this year or the start of the next, we’re always eager to show you the newest tools in our arsenal of corporate ecards.

Below are three of our latest company e greetings for Christmas and New Year which are simple but professional static email cards for companies looking for something uncomplicated but eye-catching to pass on their best wishes to employees and customers:

Are These the Most Clichéd Business Buzzwords Ever?

The other day we came across an article on Mashable which we shared through our Twitter page. The piece was all to do with determining some possible candidates for ‘The 12 Most Overused Business Buzzwords.’

The article highlighted 12 of the most clichéd phrases as chosen by 12 successful business founders with explanations as to why they’re mostly redundant and always fairly ridiculous.

12 Most Overused Marketing Buzzwords

The top 12 were:

  1. “Hit the ground running”
  2. “Visionary”
  3. “Think outside the box”
  4. “Innovate”
  5. “Influencers”
  6. “Pivot”
  7. “Paradigm shift”
  8. “Engagement”
  9. “Value add”
  10. “Pre-revenue”
  11. “Growth hacking”
  12. “Game Changer”

Recognise any? We have to admit we’re familiar with the majority of these, but some we’ve not had the misfortune to experience – “Growth hacking”, for example, sounds very messy and something you should only do after consultation with your doctor.

Buzzword Banter with Business Babble Ecards

We’ve long been aware of the influence of buzzwords in the marketing world and how there’s been a sort of backlash against the sometimes meaningless jargon adopted in place of straight-talking, no-nonsense meeting room dialogue.

It’s exactly the reason why we developed a range of company e cards designed to gently poke fun at this ludicrous phenomenon within the business world.

Behold, the Business Babble ecard:

Funny Business Babble e greeting - Coffee or Tea? Corporate E Card

One of four of our Business Babble ecards

We’re pretty fond of these designs and we think we know the reason why.

We could say it’s because they’re ‘game changers’ or that these email greeting cards are ‘really pushing the envelope’ — that they’re ‘innovative’ and ‘value add’ to businesses through ‘engagement’.

But the real reason we think they work so well is because most people in the marketing realm at some time or another have been subject to (and have cringed at the mention of) at least a few of the phrases used.

The example shown is just one of four ecards available in the Business Babble range. You can find all four, plus more funny corporate ecards, in our humour category.
