Boston, MA (PressExposure) November 28, 2006 -- FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:

November 28, 2006--

For those who thought snail-mailed holiday cards were becoming a thing of Christmas past, internet-based companies such as are now offering to do the Christmas card-mailing grunt work for you.

The technology that drives and other sites like it enables card services to produce one-of-a-kind Christmas cards and all-occasion greeting cards on demand. Card senders can now access a vast collection of high quality card designs right from their home computers, plus opt for added features like being able to customize the inside message, replicate their own handwriting and signature, and manage multiple lists of contact names and addresses. The cards are then printed, addressed, stamped and mailed to the specified list of recipients, all for less than the cost of a traditional greeting card.

According to, 1.9 billion greeting cards were sent out in the U.S. in 2005 alone. Although that number is approximately 31% less than what it was two decades ago, it's still a phenomenal amount of cards... and the declining trend could potentially reverse thanks to internet card services that make it easy and affordable to send bulk mailings of customized cards to family, friends and business associates.

"We found that many people weren’t sending their holiday cards because they didn’t have enough time to hassle with putting together a mailing of 100 or 50 or even 20 cards," says Benjamin Fitts, founder of "We now make it easier than ever to send your cards, because we’ll do all the work for you."

Recently, added the ability to upload photos and personalize Christmas cards on the fly. The easy to use technology requires no extra software or downloads. Any digital photo can be uploaded simply by browsing and clicking "upload." Photos can be customized with talk bubbles, thought balloons, borders, and captions. Customers even get the option of adding multiple photos - to the cover, left and right inside panels of the card.

In addition, has introduced special features for the holiday season such as being able to include gift certificates and personal checks inside the greeting cards before sending.

How affordable are the cards? Benjamin Fitts says, "The average store-bought card runs between $2 and $4 per card. We print your photo Christmas card, stuff the envelope, lick the stamp, and mail it for you for only $1.88 per card."
