What is the Difference between an eCard and an Email Template?

Whether you are creating an eCard or using an email template, the process is basically the same and in both options you have the ability to choose your own colors, personalize your message, add a logo, contact information as well as links to your website and social media.

To help you choose whether an eCard or an email template is the best option for you, here is a list of the main differences.


  • the eCard image always appears at the top of your email
  • the main message is preset as part of the eCard design
  • eCards can have animation and music

Email Templates:

  • images can appear anywhere within the body of the email
  • the imagery and message is predesigned but is all completely editable

How to Create a Thanksgiving Email

For today's example, I will create a Thanksgiving email using one of our new Thanksgiving email templates and then afterwards I'll show you the same general design using an animated Thanksgiving eCard as the main image.

Choosing a Thanksgiving Email Template

Select New Email Design from the navigation and "Thanksgiving" in the holiday drop down menu.

Thanksgiving email templates can be changed to your colors.

Once you find an email design you like, you can preview it with the default styles, your favorite styles and the reverse of your favorite colors. In this example, I chose my favorite colors and clicked the Insert button.

Customizing a Thanksgiving Email Template

I added a "greeting" and customized the text. I then checked the box to include my signature which has my logo and company contact information. This is my final Thanksgiving email.

The floral pumpkin design shown in my email template example above is also an animated eCard design. Here is what my non-animated final Thanksgiving eCard looks like without the animation.
