I found a cool new site for sending ecards online. The site lets you customize online video cards and send, share, or embed them. The site, RattleBox, is currently in Beta. Their tagline is fun, "e-cards that don't suck"
Here is a sample birthday card that I created in a few seconds:
Creating and sharing an online video card is easy:
Go to Rattlebox.com.
- Select a category and click on the videos to choose one for your card. A word of advice: some of the videos have some risque material, so choose carefully.
- Click "Send This eCard Now." Enter the text you want to be displayed in the video. This will replace any default text that you may have seen when you viewed the video for the first time.
- Click on "Preview & Share." It may take a few minutes for your card to be generated. Your card will play automatically once it is finished.
- Click "E-mail my eCard." The site also gives you the ability to copy the URL of your card or to post it to a MySpace or Facebook profile with an embed code.
- Enter your name and e-mail address and the name and e-mail address of the person you want to send the card to and click "Send it Now." The eCard will display your name and e-mail address as the sender so it doesn't look like spam
