I sent out e-cards for the holidays a few years back because, honestly, I didn’t want to buy stamps and address envelopes. The following year, we sent actual cards, mostly because I felt like I was supposed to (and they were pretty cute). But this year, we’re back to e-cards, only now I have an acceptable excuse: e-cards are zero waste (and I’m being “environmentally responsible”, saving time, money, and trees)!
You might think it’s not the same as a “real card”, and I get it. But I’m sending warm wishes to our loved ones, just the same…
My husband and I designed our card on a MacBook using the program Pages, but there are also e-card services with limited free options or more choices for a small fee.
I was super appreciative of a friend who took me off her mailing list and texted me a picture of her card instead, but just for the record, we still thoroughly enjoyed the cards we got via “snail mail”.
