Birthdays are a great time for celebration, but they can also be quite the hassle, if you don’t happen to be the birthday boy or girl. There are cakes to bake, parties to plan, and gifts to buy. Not only that, but if you live too far away from that friend or family member who’s celebrating a birthday, you have to worry about paying postage the cards you mail; and once the card’s actually in the mail, there’s that several day period of nervously hoping that the card actually arrives—and on time.
No one can help you over the stress of baking the perfect birthday cake, but there is an easy solution to those birthday card jitters: free ecards. Ecards come in all the same great styles you’re used to with store-bought cards, but with a few extra advantages. The first advantage, of course, is right there in the name: they’re absolutely free—free to pick out, free to personalize, and free to send. And secondly, ecards eliminate the need to call your friends and relatives to make sure they received your gift, because ecards arrive instantly, through e-mail.
