If you want to send postcards to your friends and family, there are hundreds of sites to choose from. We’ve done the hard work and explored the best sites with the widest range of cards for birthdays, holidays and other special occasions.
It’s important to know that some of these websites allow you to download cards to your computer or phone, while other websites send e-cards on your behalf — as soon as you enter the recipient’s email address. But often emails from these websites are considered promotional and may end up in your recipient’s spam folder. Make sure you acknowledge that your recipient received the e-card. To avoid this, you can always download the map and send it yourself or share the map on social media instead of emailing it.
Punchbowl: The best for most people
At Punchbowl, you’ll find an e-card for just about every occasion. The cards are beautifully designed and the website makes it easy to find and discover new cards. There are many card categories including birthdays, festivals, weddings, professional, religious and more. Cards of all categories have a consistently pleasant design.
Before sending the card, you can personalize each design with your name or other text. You can then send the card to all your guests or schedule it for later. If you install mobile apps, you can sign up to receive push notifications whenever any of your guests confirm their presence — if you send a card with the RSVP feature.
Blue Mountain: good if you want to have fun, animated postcards
Blue Mountain is one of the older e-card sending sites and is still relevant and thriving today. In addition to regular maps, Blue Mountain also has animation maps, graphics cards, and several other interactive maps. Not all of these cards are available for free though. Once you choose a card, you can personalize it to some extent and then email or share it on social media. Please note that some cards can only be personalized with preselected names.
