E-cards have become much, much more popular than I could've ever imagined, but many are now claiming that it requires much more thought to choose a card from a store / a drawer at home to send to someone on a special occasion rather than sending a card that could've been made "for free" on the internet / with a photo-editing suite.

I've argued countless times that it's what you write in the card, not whether or not the card is an e-card or not, that counts. Plus, it's much more practical to store an e-card in your inbox than to dedicate space in your house for some or all of the cards that you receive.

What are your views on this subject? Do **you** think e-cards are as meaningful as more traditional paper / cardboard cards?

why not?? its the thought and the love that you give...the card is just a medium to express it....a card or e-card is only as meaningful as the love you have for the one your giving it to.

As long as you pick out the right one, I think e-cards are as meaningful as traditional cards. But, I usually still give traditional cards, mainly because my mom works at Hallmark.

I also still send traditional cards, because it's a tradition I don't want to see coming to an end anytime soon. However, I try and remember to send e-cards instead of traditional cards to those who I don't live near to / those in areas with an unreliable postal service etc., unless I want to include a gift-certificate, in which case I usually send a traditional card.
