Ojolie Animated e-Cards ReviewSaturday, December 19, 2009
If you're like me, then procrastination could be your middle name. Yes, I know. Why put off until tomorrow what you can do today? It's probably due to the fact that I'm just not as organized as I'd like to be. And this Christmas is no different. Not only have I yet to buy Christmas gifts for my friends and family, I still have to send out about a dozen cards. But seeing as I have very little time to get them mailed out for a Christmas Eve delivery, I may just have to resort to an alternative.
E-card is the name, artistic animation is the game. Have you seen the work of Frederikke Tu? She is the artistic designer behind the beautiful works of art on Ojolie.com which she later turns into animated e-cards. What I really love is that these two elements are both tied together nicely with a wonderful selection of music. Another really neat part of the final product is the incorporation of Frederikke's own watercolor paintings. It adds a striking uniqueness to each card and makes you feel good knowing that you are sending a one-of-a-kind work-of-art to your family and friends while saving trees in the process. Frederikke also has a beautiful blog where she shares her work and her passions as well as her insight on running an e-card business.
Now, while they have a fairly large collection of e-cards that you can send for free, you can also sign up for a paid membership. For a small fee of $10 US, you get a one-year subscription or you can pay $15 US for two years. Ojolie was kind enough to grant me a free one-year subscription to their site which allows you to:
- Personalize and send as many e-cards from their entire selection.
- Personalize your account with an address book, card scheduling and card status.
- Include your own photos with your card message.
- Access their quick and professional customer service by directing inquiries to Timothy Tu.
So if you need to send some Christmas cards and are worried about them arriving in time, why not send an e-card from Ojolie.com? It's quick and easy, as well as economical and eco-friendly!
