Top 5 Sites for Christmas E-Cards 2018

Winter is in the air, and Santa will be coming to town sooner than you think! Speaking of Santa, do you already know what kinds of Christmas cards you will send to your family, friends, or business partners? No? What about doing things differently this year and surprising others withΒ  Christmas e-cards?

Traditionally, the Christmas season is associated with sending and receiving paper cards. But, as we all know, not many things can escape the wave of digitalization, and Christmas cards are no exception. It might sound odd, we admit, but hear us out!

Electronic Christmas cards are eco-friendly and cost-effective. More and more companies are catching on to this: especially tech startups and game studios prefer sending e-cards to their customers, key partners, and investors. Additionally, this helps the young-minded companies maintain a modern, creative brand image in the minds of the receivers.

Let us at Aurabear help you make your e-cards special. We rounded up the best online tools to make the process easy for you! Here is the list: (Suggestions from windowsreport.com and lifewire.com.)

Canva is a full-on online solution for designing e-cards. All you need to do is find your way to the page and let your imagination run wild – no design skills are required! As for pictures, you can choose from the photo stock provided by Canva or use your own.
