Top Video Card Websites

By

Video cards are a fun, and often free, way to send online greetings. We've found the top websites for creating and sending online video cards.

1. Animoto Video Cards

Animoto puts your photos and video into a beautifully animated digital card. You'll need to become an Animoto member to create a card.  It's $5 for a single video, or $30 for a year-long all-access pass to the site.  In my opinion, it's worth it for the quality.

2. BubbleJoy

BubbleJoy offers a variety of greeting card templates into which you can insert a video of yourself. BubbleJoy even works with your webcam, and can be tied in to your Twitter account if you need to share your video card with all of your followers.

3. CardFunk

CardFunk is a lot like JibJab, in that it lets you add photo head to animated bodies.

4. EV Cards

EV Cards offers a simple solution to personalized video cards. All you do is upload your video greeting, or record it through your webcam. Then you pick the card you want to put it in, and it's ready to send. The cards are pretty basic, but so is the site, which is a big part of its appeal.

5. JibJab Online Video Cards

With JibJab you can create and send cool video cards that include pictures of yourself or friends. If you're not familiar with JibJab's creations, they are generally musical satires with real heads on animated bodies. JibJab offers video cards for all occasions, from "Baby" to Sorry." Some of the video cards are free, but you'll have to become and member and pay to access many of the other video card designs.

6. Pixorial Video Cards

Pixorial video cards let you include a video clip of your own with a digital greeting card. These video cards are free to send, you'll just need a Pixorial membership.

7. See Me Greetings

See Me Greetings lets you send a simple, personalized holiday video card to friends and family. Some of the cards are free, or you can pay to get the video card delivered to you on CD.
