New York, NY, December 20, 2007 - 123Greetings today announced the launch of several new Christmas & Holiday cards ready to send at the last minute. With everything from shopping, decorating, cooking, and traveling during this holiday season, Americans are overburdened. Sometimes a card gets lost. Sometimes you forget an important person on your Christmas card list. 123Greetings provides a simple solution that is free, quick, and also eco-friendly – send free ecards.

“Last year, my son was supposed to drop off our Christmas cards at the post office, and while wrapping gifts on Christmas Eve, I discovered the packet of cards in with the gifts,” said Jeanne Heydecker, Marketing Group Leader for 123Greetings. “At the time I didn’t work for an ecard company. I was desperate. I got online looking for anything sendable and was very happy to find 123Greetings.com.”
Ms. Heydecker went on to say, “I was able to take the annual letter I usually enclose with the cards, cut and paste it, and send it to everyone in my email list. I actually sent out more cards, and got several responses from people online that I normally wouldn’t have heard from. It was a pleasant surprise. Plus I saved a ton on postage. This year, I scheduled my cards ahead of time, cut and pasted my letter and added personal notes to each person. My list is twice as long this year, but my cost is zero, and I’ve saved a few trees in the process.”

123Greetings is adding over 60 new ecards to their already massive collection of 20,000 plus ecards, spanning the spectrum from Christmas Carols, Christmas Eve, and religious subject matter to cards depicting Santa, Peace, Friendship and Fun. There are new cards as well for businesses. For additional information on 123Greetings.com’s Christmas cards, contact Jeanne Heydecker.
