Another well-known greeting card company that also has an extensive online collection of e-cards is Hallmark. They have free e-cards as well as those available only to subscribers.
They have many different styles of e-cards — funky, fresh, hip, trendy, classic, pretty, subtle, cool — whatever you're looking for, you're bound to find just the perfect one.
They also have animated options, complete with songs and sound, with space for you to write a heartfelt note.

If you have a deadpan sense of humor and aren't easily offended, you might check out someecards. They are one of the more popular e-card providers for social media users, and as a bonus, all content is free and fabulously funny.
These e-cards are not meant to be used by those under 18, so choose your recipients carefully — and perhaps warn them to keep their little one's eyes averted from the computer screen when they open them up.
As an added bonus, you can create your own e-card from their large library of provided pictures.

In the mood for a video, starring you? Look no further than JibJab, where you can upload a photo of your face and then watch it sing, dance and drive everyone into laughing fits.
They have e-cards for every occasion, and Mother's Day is no exception. They usually have at least one free video card for each holiday, but there are many more if you're a paid member.
There is a slight learning curve — selecting the perfect picture to use can be a little frustrating, but once you get it uploaded and the background cut out, you can save your work and use the picture over and over and over again!
