The Right Kind of Card for Your Kind of New Year

How do you like to welcome the new year? Do you prefer loud and spectacular or silent and tranquil? Or is your idea of celebrating New Year's Eve to go for your affairs like usual and just let it slip by? Either way, you can welcome others to your new year and your New Year's party with an e-card — loud or tranquil.

Here are some favorite sites to compose and send New Year's ecards.

Jacquie Lawson

Jacquie Lawson website

What We Like

  • Membership grants access to all cards on the site.

  • Card designs and animations are quaint and beautiful.

What We Don't Like

  • Complaints that card quality and diversity have declined.

  • Membership and fee required to send cards.

  • Cluttered and out-dated site design.

It is raining — fireworks and champagne for the cats and dogs in one of Jacquie Lawson's festive New Year's ecards. In another, a bird works hard for a bubble bath well deserved.

Punchbowl New Year's eCards

Punchbowl website

What We Like

  • Cards for events beyond the standard, such as Black History Month and Mardi Gras.

  • Send Amazon gift cards with ecards.

What We Don't Like

  • Need a paid subscription to remove ads from cards sent.

  • No refunds or prorates on unused time on cancelled subscriptions.

  • Free trial is too short, only 3 days.

If the imagery and calligraphy sparkle and coax with ambiance and style, so should the background; so should the envelope; so should the envelope's lining. At Punchbowl, send marvelously designed e-cards to greet the new year (or NY Eve party invitations just so brilliantly done, of course).
