Ecards : Sending

How do I send an ecard?

Please be sure you are signed in as a member of www.AmericanGreetings.com in order to send an ecard. Once you are signed in, please follow the directions below.

  1. Choose the ecard you wish to send.

  2. Click on the 'personalize and send' button. If the button instead says 'Start your FREE trial', you are not signed in properly and will need to sign in again. You will see a link for 'Already a member? Sing in.' below this button.

  3. After you access the 'personalize and send' your ecard page, please note that many ecards have options on how to send the ecard. You may have options on the page to 'email ecard' or 'post to Facebook' or 'send to mobile.'

Step 1 Please note that the default option is to send the ecard by email. Step 1 involves creating your personal message. You will see an area to personalize your message. Once you have typed your message, you can adjust the font style, size, color, bold, and/or italicize. Highlight the text and make the changes you desire. Or, you can set the changes you desire before beginning to type. Suggested messages are also available.

Many ecards offer the option of adding a voice message. Simply follow the steps here in order to add your voice.

  • Click on 'Add a voice message for free' located under the 'personalize your message' box.

  • Call the toll-free number and enter the code that is provided.

    Once you are satisfied with the message(s), click the 'continue to step 2' button.

    Step 2 provides the options to add an AmericanGreetings.com Gift Membership, or a Top Retail Gift Card if you select the 'email ecard' option. Please make a selection and click on the 'continue to step 3' button. Note that the default setting is No Thanks. When selecting 'send to mobile' or 'post to Facebook' this option is not available.

    Step 3 enables you to add the name and email address of the recipient and set the date for the ecard to be delivered. Note that you can access your AmericanGreetings.com Address Book. Simply click on the 'Open address book' link below the Recipient name field box. In order to send to more recipients by typing their emails, click the '[+] Send to more recipients' link below the Recipient email field box. Separate the email addresses with a comma or semi-colon. By default, emails for ecard recipients will be added to your AmericanGreetings.com Address Book so you won't need to type their emails the next time you send them an ecard.

    Note the default setting is to send your ecard for immediate delivery. You may schedule an ecard to be sent up to a year in advance by selecting another date from the drop down date fields boxes when selecting the 'email ecard' option only.

    When you've made all your additions and changes, you can preview your ecard by clicking the 'preview ecard' button beside the red 'send your ecard' button. If you require additional changes, you will see an 'edit message and photo' button at the top of the preview ecard page. If all is good, you will see the red 'send your ecard' button.
