Online greeting cards are also commonly known as e-cards. The primary difference between e-card and greeting card is e-card is created using digital media instead of any paper or any other kind of materials.
E-cards are usually sent via emails to each other and are made by publishers of many Internet websites.
Using online greeting cards has great and distinct benefits. As we know e-cards are digital "content", which makes them much more powerful and flexible. Unlike traditional greeting cards, e-cards can be sent to as many people as you want with a click of mouse. There are even animated e-cards which help you to express better. These are the 2D animation made in a product of Macromedia Company namely Macromedia Flash. But we are yet to achieve a milestone in animated cards.
Typically, most of the users enjoy sending e-cards directly from some website offering nice ready made greeting cards. These days no body actually takes the pain to make an e-card which needs some expertise.

Finally, you send the e-card directly from the website you've chosen from. Just enter your and recipients email. Click the send button and you are done.
