Join us on our battle against cheesy nonsense...
Christmas ecards tend to be the most popular category on the site at this time of year. With that in mind, here are 9 randomly selected designs from the festive ecards category:
Christmas Tree Splat
New Year Word Fog
Christmas Bear Word Fr...
Christmas Waste Statis...
We try to be different. You won't find the usual cheesy rubbish here... Finally, there is an alternative to the grim and cheesy world of ecards. If you've ever spent a few minutes looking for a decent ecard to send, you've probably come across sites with dancing bears and soft focus kittens, schmaltzy flowers and cutesy graphics. If so, explore our site, and have a look at our designs. Hopefully you'll find something to suit your taste.
We offer something for people with good taste, perhaps a digital equivalent of a thoughful hand made card you might find in a craft shop or a place that isn't run by a huge corporation, where you can go to the same shop in a thousand different towns and always get the same choice.
We promise that if you send a card from our site, you won't receive a single email from us nagging you to sign up, or to buy things, and we will never pass on your details to third party companies. We think your privacy is important. Also, you don't have to sign up to use our site.
If you're looking for something a little bit different, you've come to the right place. A lot of our flash designs are based around some amazing flash from sites like Wonderfl, Beautifl, Seraph, Levitated, Bit-101 and Deconcept. We think we something different from the rest of the pack, and we hope you do too.
Over the years we have also added a wide range of video ecards. Again, we've tried to be selective. As you probably know, youtube and vimeo have a lot of amazing content, and also a lot of bad taste drivel. We've collected together some of the more interesting and thought-provoking videos.
Some of our designs use flash, which won't work on iphones, ipods, ipads, nexus / google android phones. Fear not however, as a lot of our content is made up of videos, which is compatible with smart phones (and so are our image based designs). Also, all of our photos can be sent using a smart phone, so there is still plenty of choice. View our smart phone friendly ecards to see what's available. That still leaves over 200 ecards you can use, not including about 600 photo ecards which are on the site.
Sorry if you'd tried to sign up as a member in the past few days and found it didn't work. I've fixed it now, and it is now working.10-Dec-2013
Today I've launched a new version of jimpix. It uses the mighty Bootstrap mobile first front-end framework. Basically it means that jimpix will now work well on mobile phones and tablets. If you resize your browser (e.g. by making it narrower) if you're using a PC / Mac / Linux, then you'll see that the page is "responsive" so the elements on the page rearrange themselves in a tall stack, rather than invoking the horizontal scroll bar.
This probably sounds like a load of tedious nonsense, if it's not your thing.
I hope the new site works well for you anyway. The content is the same, it's just a better design (in my opinion).
If you have any problems with the new site, or have any feedback in general, please get in touch.
If you're a fan of Simon's Cat, I added 14 new videos to the Simon's Cat category this evening, detailed here. Plus there is now a pretty red marker on ecards which have been added in the last month...28-Jun-2013
This evening I updated the site (example here). The page where you fill in your details has been updated to show 4 designs in the same category underneath the current design you're viewing. A minor change, but hopefully it makes the site more usable.
The homepage has been tweaked to show recent additions / popular content and the most popular categories for the past week.
Plus I've set things up so I can easily add new videos from Youtube and Vimeo, so hopefully I'll be able to add new content more frequently... Apologies if you don't like the video content though!
Also, on a video ecard page, you will now see this text above it saying "For notes about this video: Show". Click on the "Show" link to display the video description as taken from the video's original page from Youtube or Vimeo.
I've added two new categories added this evening: Animated and Short Films. In total I've added 13 new designs this evening. This new widget for adding video content is great :-) As you can see, I rather like short films, hopefully some of you will enjoy them too.
I've added an address book to the member's section.03-Jun-2013
