How to create an e-card

Send festive greetings the eco-friendly way

E-cards are ideal for those you regularly contact by email or online, whether they are friends or business clients. This environmentally friendly option can also be kinder on the wallet. We show you how to create your own using ecards.co.uk.

Step 4. Once you’ve finished creating your ‘heads’, you can simply drag-and-drop them into the template. If you don’t like the way one head looks in a particular position, drag a replacement image over the top. Ecards also offers celebrity heads - click the Celebrity Heads tab and choose from Beyoncé, James Bond and more.
