Have you taken a good look at greeting cards lately? With competition from e-cards, florists, and other specialty gifts, it has become necessary for the greeting card industry to become more modern. Some card companies have made their inventory available on the internet by subscription or direct individual purchase, but some have been innovative, coming up with products that can compete directly with animated e-cards.

Although audio greeting cards have been around for years, they have recently grown in popularity. Cards that include music, lights, and other extras are extremely popular. There are also greeting cards that include the capability to record a personalized 10-second message that can be replayed 220 times or re-recorded. These greetings also include a short music clip following the message. Moms and dads are happiest with these kinds of cards, because they let them hear their loved one's voice over and over.

Another great idea in modern-day greeting cards is the one that includes life-like pictures. Images seem to be animated by using holographic technology. LED light cards are also showing up, which contributes "glitz" to any card. Card makers are considering making cards that employ motion-sensitive LED screens, similar to a digital camera or cell phone, allowing people to send paper cards with video clips.

Greeting cards have been used for over 500 years, so in spite of the fact that specialty gifts and e-cards are having an impact on sales, greeting cards will surely endure. The majority of folks will tell you they prefer getting a paper greeting card or a handwritten note. There are several different ways to offer your best wishes other than greeting cards. Gift baskets, flowers, and edible gifts are available online and are convenient to send to people to convey a sentiment. Regardless of your intentions or how much you spend, people are always flattered to receive something in the mail as it makes them realize that they are being thought of.
