Postcards, birthday cards, holiday cards, greeting cards? Now, it’s all about eCards. They’re the easiest way to send loved ones messages they won’t forget -- for free! Not to mention, they don’t kill trees in the process.

If you want your recipient to remember your eCard, make sure they laugh. How do you make a funny eCard without spending any money? Glad you asked. Kapwing gives you free tools to make a personalized eCard that’ll be sure to get a hearty chuckle. Follow these steps to make yours:

  1. Open a canvas
  2. Personalize your card
  3. Publish and share

1. Open a canvas

First, open the Kapwing Studio and click ‘Start with a blank canvas’. Next, select ‘Custom Size’ from the top right and enter 700px for the width and 500px for the height.

Technically, you can make the dimensions whatever you want, but eCards typically follow a 7:5 aspect ratio.

There’s no need to download or install anything to use Kapwing on the web. That means you can edit and access your eCard from any device.

2. Personalize your card

Now, it’s time to unleash your creativity. Kapwing gives you every tool to personalize your eCard. Open the color picker on the right to change the background.

If you want, click ‘Upload’ in the top left to add a picture as the background.

Choose ‘Text’ at the top left to add your joke or personalized message. Edit your text font, color, outline, background and animations with the tools on the right.

Choose ‘Images’ to add another image or search Kapwing’s image database for the perfect picture. Resize your image with the handles in each corner.

If you need to erase something from your photo, click your image and select ‘Erase’ from the right side. Check out this article about erasing the background to learn more.
