If You Use GMail, Yahoo Mail or Mac Mail

1) Click on the colored bar under the card you want. That will take you to a new page showing a message and an image of your card--like the sample on the right side of this page.

2) Highlight the entire message including the blue link and the image below the link.

3) Copy and paste both the words and image directly into the body of your email. Go ahead and try it on "An Amazing Birthday Gift for You" and send the card to someone. Or send it to yourself to see how it works.

NOTE 1: You can change or delete the message only after it's been pasted into your email.

NOTE 2: If you click on the image or link after you paste it in to your email, it won't play in your email because it's designed to play only when the recipient clicks on it.

If You Use Outlook or Entourage or Hotmail

1) Click on the colored bar under the card you want. That will take you to a new page showing a message and an image of your card--like the sample on the right side of this page.

2) Copy and paste the message and the blue link (but not the image) into your email.

3) Select the image, drag it to your desktop, and from there, drag it directly into your email. Go ahead and try it on "An Amazing Birthday Gift for You" and send the card to someone. Or send it to yourself to see how it works.

4) Or, if you are not able to drag it to your desktop, you can copy the image, save it to a file on your computer, and then "insert" it into your email as a "picture."

5) If you have a problem inserting the image, don't worry, the recipient will still be able to view their card by clicking on the text link below the message.

 

Copy and Paste From Your Tablet or Phone

1) Place your finger next to the word "Hi" in the message. Press on the screen to select the message and the image. You can control the selection using the little blue dots on the border of the selection.

2) Select copy. Go to your email and press your finger on the screen where you want to paste what you copied. When the options appear, select "paste" from the choices. Your message and image will appear in your email.

Why Send Cards From Your Email?

We created a new way for you to deliver your e-Cards that makes them feel more personal by sending them from your own personal email account.

Why do this? Because other card companies send the cards for you, and that doesn’t feel personal. We believe that your cards should come directly from you, not a third party that your friends don’t even know.

As one of our members wrote, "I don't like it when the card company bugs my friend every two days to open their card.  A greeting card doesn’t feel right when it comes from a company you don’t know, instead of a friend. It can feel like spam, or a scam."
