Ecard Mint announces new design in support of a more sustainable alternative to paper Christmas cards.

It’s really encouraging to see that companies are getting on board with our environmentally friendly message - that good communication in business is vital, but shouldn’t cost the earth.

Ecard Mint, an ecard company specialising in high quality corporate greetings, has expanded its holiday range to offer more choice for consumers looking for a ‘green’ alternative to sending paper cards.

The move comes just a few weeks after the official launch of the Ecard Mint website, which offers businesses of all sizes the ability to send marketing messages to customers and employees, without jeopardising their commitment to corporate social responsibility.

One of the latest designs to emerge on the site in time for the Christmas rush is an entertaining animated ecard featuring a ‘naughty snowman’ who does his very best to cause mischief and mayhem during the holiday season. In this scenario, the snowman’s target is Santa’s unattended sleigh. The naughty snowman seizes his opportunity and swipes Santa’s sack, replacing it with some conveniently located logs. When Santa returns none the wiser, the snowman is smug until the poorly-balanced sleigh takes off and tilts, dropping the logs straight onto the snowman’s head.    

Ecard Mint, which was established to serve a growing demand for eco-friendly and cost-effective marketing communications, has already received an excellent response in regard to their range of static and animated Christmas designs. Managing Director of Ecard Mint, Nick Hellman commented: ‘We’re extremely happy with the progress we’ve made with the site in such a short time and we wanted to build on that success by adding even more designs ready for Christmas 2013. It’s really encouraging to see that companies are getting on board with our environmentally friendly message - that good communication in business is vital, but shouldn’t cost the earth.’

With the rise in stamp prices earlier in the year, as well as other costs associated with buying paper cards, Ecard Mint say that sending ecards doesn't just help the environment, but makes good financial sense too. Nick Hellman adds: ‘When you factor in the cost of the card and the stamp, not to mention the time it takes to write out each card, it becomes a huge drain on your resources; we make this process a lot easier. The cost of an ecard is a fraction in comparison to a paper card and you can still send a personalised message. You can even schedule your ecard months in advance or send it at the last minute if you've fallen short of time, as many of us do during this busy period.’

Corporate social responsibility remains a hot topic for companies. And whilst it’s traditional at this time of year to debate the likelihood of a white Christmas, it appears that for many businesses this year, a green Christmas could be on the cards.
