A step-by-step guide to holiday eCards

See below for our six easy-to-follow steps to create your own holiday eCard. 

Pick your Christmas eCard service

Firstly, you’ll need to identify which holiday eCard package is right for you. 

At eCO2 Greetings, we understand that not all businesses are the same. So, we’ve been sure not to take a one-size-fits-all approach to our holiday eCard packages. Instead, we offer three different options, tailored to provide eCards to suit all types of businesses. 

See below for more information on our Christmas eCard options.  

eCO2 Greetings Standard Christmas eCards

Have a certain amount of recipients in mind? Looking for a ready-made, hassle-free quality eCard that’ll bring a smile to your clients (or colleagues!) faces that you can also personalize? Our standard Christmas eCard package may be the best option for you. 

With our standard Christmas eCard package, you can choose from many Christmas templates, add messaging, and even include Christmas-themed music for your selected recipients. For more information on our Christmas eCard packages, click here.

Choose your eCard template

If you’re using our Bespoke eCard service, we’ll take you through the process when you contact us. For our standard or premium eCard packages, start the process by selecting an eCard template. 

From traditional style templates and religious Christmas-themed eCards to festive fun animation and illustration options and more, you’ll start your process by browsing through our catalogues of templates. 

If you’re choosing a Premium eCard, you’ll be able to browse through many animated templates that allow for more customization. For example, we have plenty of designs where you can add the faces of your colleagues or clients!

Send your custom eCard 

It really is that simple. Once you’ve created and saved your Christmas eCard to your account, it’s ready to be sent whenever you’re ready.  

We recommend performing a test of sending your eCard. To do this, send the eCard directly from your account with us to your personal email. 

We advise testing your eCard to ensure you’re delighted with how it’ll appear to your recipients. Our eCards can be altered right up until it’s sent, so this would be the perfect opportunity for tweaking (if required). 

As long as you have the correct contact information, you can send out your Christmas eCard via many different platforms. There really are no limitations. This includes: 

  • Email.
  • SMS text. 
  • Your company email platform system. 
  • All social media platforms. 
  • All online messaging platforms (e.g. Facebook Messenger)
  • All business messaging platforms (e.g. Slack). 

It’s also worth noting that our eCards are optimised for desktop and mobile. So, no matter which device your recipients are using, they’ll receive your eCard exactly how you intended.
