123 Geetings

The first online service for sending virtual postcards to which I want to suggest you appeal is 123 Geetings . It is a portal specialized in greeting cards, some animated, others available in video format, suitable for any occasion and to be sent by e-mail. It is only available in English but considering the huge assortment of contents and the possibility of customization offered, this is not a flaw at all. Furthermore, its use turns out to be quite intuitive even for non-polyglots.

To send a virtual postcard via 123 Greetings, connect to the home page of the site and choose the postcard you prefer from the most popular that are offered directly in the center of the page or select the reference category on the left. If you want, you can also follow a search by tag through the section on the right or a search by key words using the appropriate field at the top, always on the right.

After choosing your postcard, make all the necessary customizations by firstly modifying the music and sound effects through the appropriate menu that you find under the preview (if available) then press the Customize and send this car button d.

On the page that opens, type your name and your e-mail address in the fields that you find under the heading Sender Details , type the message with which you want to accompany the postcard in the box attached to the Message section (Write as much as you want) , specify the recipient’s name and email address in the fields under Receiver Details (Send this ecard to multiple recipients “max. 100”) (if you want you can add additional recipients by clicking on Add Reciver ) and if you want your virtual postcard to be delivered on a day other than the current one, click on the calendar symbol at the bottom and specify the date.

Finally, remove the ticks from all the items that you find in the Notificatons section, leaving it only on Let me know once the ecard is viewed.  if you want to be notified when your virtual postcard is opened by the recipient and click on Send Now . Done!

Another “milestone” in terms of solutions for sending virtual postcards is the Kisseo website . It is in fact one of the most famous and appreciated portals of the category. It offers many animated postcards for every kind of occasion to choose from, all in high quality and accessible without having to register for the service, to be sent by email or to be shared online. It also allows you to print or send “classic” postcards in paper format directly to the recipient’s home, but in this specific case I would say that we don’t care.

To use Kisseo for your purpose, connected to the home page of the service, click on the item All postcards at the top and select the reference category from those in the menu that opens, then scroll through the list of available postcards and click on the one you prefer.

On the page that you will later see appear, click on the Play button to preview the postcard and then, if it convinces you, press the button via Email (FREE) and fill in the field Enter your message here with the personalized message you want to attach to the postcard.

Then fill out the form on the right, in the From: section , by typing your data (name, surname, email address and date of birth), enter the recipient’s e-mail address in the To: section (if you want you can add more than one recipient by clicking on Add a recipient ) and then specify the sending date using the appropriate field.

Then click on No to indicate that you do not wish to receive offers from the partners of the site, press on Next and, to conclude, click on Validate sending on the page that opens. Et voila !

If instead of sending everything via e-mail you prefer sharing via network or instant messaging, after selecting the postcard press the blue button under the heading Share this postcard , type your email address and your personalized message and click on Save the postcard , press the icon of the social network through which to share and that’s it.
