Searching for online cards and invitations? ’Tis the season—December is here, and along with it, holiday parties, celebratory dinners, and the need to send an annual family photo to friends around the world. While snail mail certainly has its charms, there’s no doubt that digital correspondence via email or text is faster and far less of a hassle. (You try stuffing 150 paper cards into envelopes, addressing them by hand, and bringing them to the post office.)
Yet, what e-stationery companies are the best for digitally displaying such holiday cheer? Below, our top suggestions for online cards and invitations.
Electragram founder Anna Carter told Vogue earlier this year that she wanted to create digital stationery that “inspires the same delight as sending or receiving a handwritten card.” Indeed, Electragram’s telegram-inspired holiday templates—which include festive motifs of wreaths, trees, and gelts for those celebrating Channukah—evoke an aesthetic that’s more 1922 than 2022, artfully embracing the fuzzy nostalgia we all crave during the season. Use them to send everything from a thank you note, to a dinner invitation, to a season’s greeting card.
Don’t feel like gathering all your friend’s emails and would rather send blasts from your phone? Look no further than HiNote, a mobile app where you can text elevated—yet also amusing—correspondence instantly to your friends. They offer a wide variety of options: send a laid-back holiday card with their digital photo template, or send your group chat a dressed-up iMessage for Christmas cocktails at your place.
