Human fascination with elephants extends to greeting cards and related products.

Elephants are among the popular choices greeting cards of many types, particularly the cutesy designs intended for children. Another favorite theme is remembrance and age since elephants live a long time ... about the average age of a human.

E-Cards
Anniversary Birthday Holiday Love Note Postcards Special e-Cards Page Top

E-Cards, or electronic greeting cards sent via internet, are a new phenomenon in the culture of cards. There are many, many sources of e-cards who have elephant themed items. Using a search engine with the search criteria "e-cards" will turn up lots of them. Our last search turned up these on the first page of search results:
americangreetings.com
bluemountain.com
dayspring.com
e-cards.com
egreetings.com
free-ecardsonline.com
hallmark.com

myfuncards.com
123greetings.com

The major appeals of e-cards seem to be these: They are often animated with music. They are often free. They get to your recipient in a convenient manner with no postage cost and no paper to be recycled or put in a landfill. They are fun too.

There are downsides to sending e-cards. Recipients may be unable to share them as they wish. They do not get a paper card with your signature or handwritten message to keep if they wish. It isn't practical to put money in an e-card.

Having remarked on some pros and cons, let's look at a few. If you want to see a lot of them, go online.
