    But, at the very moment you're choosing a design and/or a message, aren't you already putting a thought into it? That's the message/feeling you want to deliver, no?

    I've never gotten an e-card before.
    Hell... I barely get any real cards.

    .... or any mail for that matter.

    I have no friends. ):
    I'm a loner.
    No one likes me.
    *sniff*

    I'm not a fan of e-cards.

    Well, if there's no other way and you wanna send it to someone reallllllly far I guess it make sense.

    But, if you can take the time to purchase a pretty little stamp and mail it, then DO IT. Getting REAL mail is 10000000000000000 times MORE FUN then getting e-mails. My friend and I switched from e-mailing to old-fashion stamped addressed envelopes cause it's so exciting to get cool stuff in the mail box. ^_^

    ^ I agree! A really really long time ago (this was before the time of the e-mailz), I did that with friends who lived in Hungary. We kind of grew apart now tho.
    But it's definitely exciting to get stuff in the mail.
    Now, if I want to send something card like, I just draw a picture on/off the comp and hand write a message next to it. I think that's still nicer than just an e-card, because the person can tell that I spend time to do something for them, and maybe they will appreciate it more too?
    I might be old-fashioned but I still like hand-made things more than just something you might have bought/found and possibly didn't spend too much time on looking for it. (NOTE!! this isn't always the case, and sometimes people spend weeks trying to figure out what to get someone: something that describes that person they want to give it to, or sth similar to the case stated)

    @silver: if you spent time picking out that e-card, then I think that's still nice. You know, if you found something that you thought the person would like. (as you've stated above.)

    (:

    real card > e-card > nothing

    sooo, if you really don't have the time for a read card, it's better to send an e-card than to ignore the occasion completely =P there's still some thought put into choosing the e-card and writing the accompanying message, plus some e-cards are fun to watch

    but yah, a real card = time + effort, usually appreciated (unless you're a really crappy artist and it hurts the eye).

    Getting e-cards feels like the sender is making a quick minimal gesture that requires the least amount of time, effort, and expense on their part. On the other hand getting a Hallmark card in the mail doesn't seem like that much of an improvement unless a letter, picture, or something else is included that gives it more personal substance and meaning.
