Send holiday photo cards by email

You may have seen the Stationery button in your Compose E-mail window, but never had a reason to check it out. This is the place to go any time you’d like to send last-minute photo greetings, straight to your loved ones’ email inboxes. For a photo card for Christmas, New Year, or other winter holidays, try our “Winter” greeting card:

There are several options for creating a photo card

To personalize your card with a photo, simply click Upload picture in the image placeholder to select a photo from your computer’s hard drive. (If you prefer to send a card without a picture, select Stationery without image in the left dropdown menu) Once you have your photo in place, you can type in your message – and don’t forget to customize it with fonts (under More) and smileys if desired:
