A blue birthday invite from Punchbowl

Punchbowl is a free ecard website that allows you to send a customized digital greeting card that arrives tucked into a virtual envelope with a postage stamp. Virtual invitations are also available for free at Punchbowl to help you party plan.

You'll find free ecards for birthdays, holidays, announcements, occasions, and any other reason you'd want to send someone a card.

Creating a Punchbowl Ecard

Visit Punchbowl's Ecards and choose the category of ecard you'd like to send. There are cards for almost every holiday, birthday cards for every age and gender, announcements and greeting cards for occasions like graduations and wedding, ecards to express just about every feeling, and business ecards.

Once you've chosen the category, you'll see a list of ecards within that category. The ecards with the blue Free circles are the cards that are free for you to use. You can also use the drop-down menu at the top right so you can see only the free designs.

Click on the ecard you'd like to send and click the Personalize Design button to start customizing. At this point, you can choose to include a gift card or you can continue making your free ecard.

You'll then be asked if you want to send a virtual gift card along with the ecard but you can just skip this to go on to designing your ecard.

Go through the front, inside, and back of the ecard to add all your personal touches. This includes editing the text and changing the font type, size, spacing, alignment, and color. 

After you've got everything set for your card, you get to personalize the virtual envelope that it comes in. You can change the envelope liner, the rubber stamp, and even the virtual postage stamp.
