    I need some good and safe greeting cards sites. I will be thankful if you can post link to some which you are using personally( not the google results please) and especially if they are not common as I want to send some unique greeting cards, not like the ones from Yahoo etc that every one is familiar with as they are so common.

    Thanks.

    All these type sites are garbage IMO --- they're more trouble than they're worth and generally people don't want such things - at least I know I don't. I get more than enough email already ... if the sender can't spend some time and effort on their email, I don't figure I should spend any of my valuable time reading it ... and treat it as spam - multiple infractions gets the sender a custom spam filter. :p

    If you want to / need to send a greeting card and want it unique, create your own and send it as an attachment (jpg, gif), leaving out the middleman and any potential issues that can arise from them. ;) Doing it this way shows effort and sincerity and is worthy of the recipent taking the time to view and appreciate it.

    There more than likely is, I'm not saying they're all bad sites, it's just bad email etiquette IMO, far worst than sending non-plain-text emails. The rest of my comment above sheds light on my (and I'm sure others) distain for such emails.

    I used to use BlueMountain years ago when they were free until they introduced a subscription model. After that, I found 123greetings.com, which is still free. However, I haven't used it in a very long time.

    Right but do u expect every one to be able to create his own greeting card?

    BTW, from where I can start if I sant to do so, some free software?

    I use 123greetings.com. Free and has a nice selection. I don't send them to my relatives though. Mostly online friends and acquaintances.

    If these greeting card sites are free to use, I wouldn't trust it.
    Free stuff on the internet has usually a purpose, like collecting email-addresses for spam-emails. I've already enough spam-emails.
