After reading the previous review for Skyblue cards over a week ago I decided
to check out the ecards website for myself. I was very impressed. I was able
to have a look around the site before deciding if i wanted to became a member or
not. There is a great range of categories to choose with each category having
a good choice of card to send. (There were also cards that had 'new' beside
them so they keep adding to the card category which I like).
The site was very easy to navigate around and after looking at other ecard sites
I decided to join Skyblue cards as the cards are very individual and I could see
how the range of styles would suit my family and friends varying tastes and
The membership fee was only £5, bargain as you can send as many cards you like
for a year. I paid using paypal which was very easy and I didn't experience any
After filling in the address book I then sent my first ecard. It was very
simple. I then realised that you could use the calendar to delay sending cards
so I have all my September and October birthday cards picked, personalised and waiting to be
sent on the day that I chose - perfect for me! I will no longer be the family
member who always sends belated bithday cards - yahoo!
I recommend that you have a look at skybluecards.com
First review on dooyoo so here goes - hope it is up to standard of some of the great reviews I've seen here! I actually suggested this ecard website as I have tried a few ecard services and this is the best I have come across. I've wasted a lot of time and sometimes money on some of the many hundreds of ecard sites out there. So why do I think this one is good ?
Firstly, they have a great selection of cards with loads of different styles. There are four working Scottish artists who run the site and they produce stuff which is quite different from the run of the mill ecard sites. They have stuff which can be any of these styles- artistic, funny, clever, cute, funky, contemporary, cartoonish or just plain beautiful. They avoid the over-sentimental, too sweet and mushy styles that some card sites have but you can still find cute cards for sentimental occasions. Check out their Karaoke Man cards for something fun and different.
Secondly, I like the fact that they are not a big corporate company mass producing cards from some templates. They are a small British company trying to compete in a tough market and doing so by going for quality and something different.
Thirdly, customer service is excellent. I was a member of a couple of other sites - bluemountain.com and american greetings.com and found their customer service badly lacking. When I first joined Skyblue I had a hitch with my Paypal payment and had to email Skyblue support ( they ain't big enough to run telephone support !) and got a personal reply from a named individual who sorted it out for me even though it wasn't their fault - and then ,because of the slight inconvenience, extended my membership for an extra month at no charge. Nice touch -pretty good service indeed.
Lastly, it is a great value site. For £5 per year you can join and then send as many cards as you like to as many people as you like. Now I know there are loads of "free" sites out there but from my experience of using some of these you soon find that there are hitches - eg the cards are free but the site is full of adverts and pop-ups, your data may be sold on to other sites, you can find you get loads more spam after signing up for a free ecard, the cards are free for a month but they want your credit card details anyway hoping you will forget to cancel within the month and they will then take your annual subscription,etc,etc. You get none of that with Skyblue. Much simpler to just pay a fiver and by the time you have sent a few cards the rest are virtually free anyway !
