Top 10 Websites for Free Ecards

A List of the Very Best Free Ecard Sites


A free ecard is a great way to let someone know you're thinking about them without having to spend any money. Unfortunately, many of the popular free ecard websites are difficult to navigate, overrun with advertisements, and have only poor quality ecards.

Here are ten excellent websites, some of which you might not have heard of, that have a large selection of high quality, completely free ecards.

If you're looking for free birthday ecards in particular I have a list of the best ones out there.

1. Free Ecards at Punchbowl

Punchbowl is my favorite free ecard website because not only will you find beautiful free ecards here, their website is extremely easy to use. You'll find free ecards for birthdays, holidays, thank you's, and just about every other reason you'd want to send someone an ecard.

You'll get to customize the text, envelope liner, postage stamp design, and rubber stamp greeting before sending off your free ecard at Punchbowl. You can even include a gift card along with your ecard.

Tip: Punchbowl's free ecards are the ones with the blue circle that says "Free" at the top.

2. Celebrations Free Ecards and Online Invitations

Using professional designers, including Martha Stewart, to create lovely cards for just about any occasion, lands Celebrations straight near the top of my list for the best free ecards.

You'll get to personalize the free ecards at Celebrations with your custom text and even add your own images.

Besides free ecards, Celebrations also has free online invitations that you can send for any event that you are having and allows you to collect your RSVP's straight from Celebrations to your email.

Tip: While most of the ecards are free at Celebrations the ones that are categorized as "Premium" requires you to have a paid membership.

3. Free and Fresh Ecards at Hipster Cards
