In today’s digital age, sending greeting cards has become easier and more convenient thanks to the rise of eCards. eCards offer a lot of advantages over traditional paper cards, especially when it comes to group greetings. Whether you’re organizing a surprise birthday party for your friend or sending holiday wishes to your colleagues at work, group eCards are the perfect way to stay connected and spread some cheer. In this blog post, we’ll explore the benefits of sending group greeting eCards and show you how to get started.

The benefits of Sending Group Greeting eCards are as follows:

1. Cost-effective

Beautifully designed group e-cards can save you a lot of money compared to traditional paper cards, especially if you’re sending them in bulk. You won’t have to worry about buying individual cards, envelopes, stamps, or addressing each card manually – all these tasks can be done easily online for free or at a low cost.

2. Time-saving

Gone are the days when you had to spend hours choosing and buying greeting cards from stores and then individually mailing them out. With group eCards, you can create one card that everyone in your group can receive instantly with just one click.

3. Eco-friendly

Sending group eCards is an eco-friendly way of celebrating special occasions while reducing waste. Traditional paper greeting cards can often end up in landfills as they cannot be recycled due to their design attributes (e.g., glitter). However, electronic versions eliminate this problem completely because there is no physical product produced beyond what’s needed on your computer screen.

4. Customizable

Group eCards allow for greater customization than traditional paper copies since digital formats provide endless possibilities for designs and animations that bring life into these messages without taking up too much space! You could capture anything from photos featuring hallmark moments within your family year or opt-in interactive ones where recipients have access through social media channels after viewing them once inside your’ mailbox!

How To Get Started With Group eCards?

1. Choose the right platform

There are plenty of online platforms available for creating and sending group eCards. Some popular ones include Evite, Paperless Post, Blue Mountain, Punchbowl, and Smilebox. However, it’s essential to choose one that suits your needs while giving flexibility on customization options—having a platform won’t matter if you don’t have the tools necessary to make your message unique.

2. Create an account & browse templates

Once you’ve selected a preferred platform for sending group eCards, sign up and start exploring different card templates and designs offered within it. Most platforms also allow editing capabilities to add custom touches or personalized messages before sending them out!

3. Choose a Layout 

When selecting a layout, make sure to consider factors like your group size or event type (such as professional vs. personal festivities). A formal event would need an elegant template with clean lines, in contrast, offering playful collections containing bold colors and fun illustrations.

4. Customize Your Card

After choosing which template fits best within your goal aim, customize it further by adding text overlays with relevant celebratory greetings in different fonts or styles depending on individual preference/situation. Always remember to ensure readability from all devices that may be viewed.

5. Add Images/Animations 

The beauty of digital cards falls within the endless possibilities of adding any virtual animations that celebrate events visually by providing beautiful graphics or images relevant to related memories captured over time. One can even include music tracks with sound effects/captions suitable for any audience watching them remotely from anywhere in the world.


In conclusion, sending greeting e-cards provides an easy and cost-effective way of staying connected as well as rejoicing in memorable times with loved ones. By utilizing an online platform, a bunch of people can send customized wishes to their loved ones without burning a hole in their pocket.
