It with heavy hearts with announcing the closure of sister site Katie’s Cards. Katie’s cards was our first endeavour into the Email and Communications world. The site launched back in 2004 with the simple goal to deliver awesome animated communications between friends and family.
Since then, we have sent over a whopping 1,000,000 Emails out to over 100+ countries across the world. This is something we are hugely proud of and used our experiences to build on when creating Ecard Mint. We are confident that Ecard Mint will deliver the same solutions to Katie’s Cards members, and we have improved on our service when in Early 2019 we made over 700+ Ecard available to send for free.
We want to thank you for being part of Katie’s Cards! We hope to see you again.
Katie’s Cards will close it’s digital doors July 30th 2019.

During their careers, most workers will undoubtedly invest more time at the workplace than they will doing any other task, except maybe sleeping.
This Friday, March 1st, 2019 is the now world-famous Staff Appreciation Day. A great time to show how much you value all the efforts, as well as commitments made by your team and colleagues. If you’re wondering what you can do for your personnel to thank them for all their initiatives! Here are some ideas straight from the Ecard Mint HQ:
Celebrate with food.
Take your group to lunch or have lunch brought in. If lunch is a standard method of celebrating in your office, you can mix it up by holding a breakfast celebration instead. Or, think of an innovative afternoon treat activity, such as a build-it-yourself cocktail bar with music, or other fun activities.
Give a present.
You can give out a Deliveroo or Starbucks gift card to each staff member and also share something you appreciate about each person when you present the gift to them. Does your team like to remain energetic? If ‘yes’, then how about health and fitness trackers? You could also hire an exercise trainer to instruct everyone as to exactly how they should be used, and create an enjoyable physical fitness task in the workplace to kick off making use of their trackers.
Plan a team trip.
Develop a list of fascinating, unique, and fun team building occasions (within your budget) then allow your team to choose which task they would like to do. One group I know wanted a team building cooking occasion at a local restaurant. A different team rented out an ice skating rink for the afternoon, with food provided as well as beverages, a DJ spinning songs, topped off with ice skating lessons from specialist skaters.
Give them a break.
Kick off the employee recognition events by giving your staff members some paid pause this Friday. Or if you want to get really creative, produce a fun voucher that lets workers choose whatever day they wish to leave early. By doing this everyone can use it whenever it is of most use to them, for example; to go to a kid’s school occasion or attend the birthday celebrations of a family member.
AND SAY THANK YOU!
After you have shown your appreciation and support to staff members this Friday, don’t fail to continue with your efforts throughout the rest of 2019. When an employee exceeds expectations or forgoes the norm on a job, tell him or her just how much you appreciate their initiatives. When the team achieves a hard won goal or hits their targets, celebrate the accomplishment. Give individual awards for outstanding work – and we are not talking like Dunder Mifflin or Wernham Hogg.
This year Ecard Mint have really boosted the selection of Chinese New Year Ecards by adding 13 new designs to our Chinese New Year Ecard category.
The latest addition is the simple but joyful Happy Pig card which celebrates the Year of the Pig Lunar calendar animal in a fun and jolly fashion.
Funny pig Ecard for New Year 2019
We kept things simple so this Ecard has no sound or music. The next Ecard for Chinese New Year is the Chinese Dragon animation, a real live dragon visits a small Chinese village, but transforms into a procession costume on entering the square celebrations.
Some call it Chinese New Year, others call it the Lunar New Year, here at Ecard Mint we can help you celebrate either or just one.
This year we are celebrating the Year of the Pig, the Pig is the twelfth of the 12-year cycle of animals which appear in the Chinese zodiac related to the Chinese calendar. In the continuous sexagenary cycle, every twelfth year corresponds to hai, and is commonly called the Year of the Pig
