New Fun and Free Cards Can Be Personalized to Support Your Favorite Charity, Promote Your Business or Blog -- and Can Be Sent to Friends and Family or Posted to Twitter or Facebook

PORT CHESTER, NY--(Marketwire - December 15, 2009) - As the days get shorter and the temperature drops, has launched a new site that lets people spread some holiday cheer, send a gift certificate, or support their favorite cause or charity through fully customizable and unique eCards. The company has created a series of heartfelt, clever, and edgy Holiday cards ready to be personalized and sent to friends, family, and colleagues -- or shared with one's social network on Twitter and Facebook.

With every card, senders can include a linkable and brandable logo -- presenting virtually limitless opportunities for self-expression, networking, charitable support, and marketing. Users can select a logo among YourCards' library of commonly used logos (such 'visit my page on Facebook' or Amazon gift certificate), upload their own logo image, and select the destination URL.

For example, users can point their recipients to check out their Twitter feed, personal blog, Etsy page, their company or school website, and much more. By including the logo and URL of a favorite cause or charity, people can spread the important message of giving over the holidays. And the customizable logo also offers a fun and creative way to send a gift certificate in a far more personal way than the merchant's email.

In seconds, users can send their favorite digital card to any email, as well as share their personal holiday greetings with their social network by posting the card to their Facebook wall or Twitter feed.

And unlike other free eCards, there are no pop-ups, advertisements, or banners to distract and detract from the viewing experience. With YourCards, the recipient enjoys the card, and just the card, in full screen.

For example, after a weekend walk-a-thon, a participant sent donors a Thank You card that linked to the foundation's logo. After a Halloween party, a user sent cards to all the guests with a link to the Flickr page hosting photos from the event," said John Aslanian, Founder and CEO of
