Lurgashall, England (PRWEB) June 04, 2012
Ten years after its founding Jacquie Lawson’s e-cards site has joined in the chorus of congratulation on the occasion of the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee.
A fun new e-card with a very appropriate soundtrack from Elgar’s “Land of Hope and Glory” kicks off the celebrations with a visit to Buckingham Palace; but the focus is on a freely downloadable Quick Send Widget. This brand new app brings Jacquie’s classy and elegant animations to the desktop with shortcuts to her most popular and topical e-cards, together with a calendar which features automatic birthday and holiday reminders as well as notifications of new card releases. The company’s British roots are shown in the design, which is based on Big Ben, and the digital version of the famous London landmark can be set to chime the hour in perfect synchronisation with your computer’s clock.
The new Diamond Jubilee e-card brings the total available from the site to 214, including everything from Christmas and birthday cards to more specialised greetings for July 4th and Thanksgiving, reflecting the site’s large number of American customers. Nevertheless, this is not a huge number for ten years continuous production, and it reflects the astonishing care and attention to detail which goes into each e-card. This obsession with quality at the expense of quantity is largely responsible for the enormous success of Jacquie’s website.
