How to Send an eCard as a Text Message

CorpNote doesn't explicitly offer the ability to send an eCard via text message but we have an easy solution. Use our eCard direct link feature.

Here are the general steps:

  • Create your eCard as usual
  • Copy the direct link for your eCard
  • Open the messages app on your mobile device and paste the link into a message

For more detailed instructions, follow the step-by-step tutorial below. If you have already sent your eCard and wish to text it now, move directly to step 2.

Step 1. Create a New eCard

  • Sign into your account
  • In the navigation, select eCards > Create New
  • Select the eCard design you would like to use and compose your message
  • Address and send the eCard to yourself

We recommend that you preview the eCard in your inbox first to make sure that it looks the way you want it to. Once an eCard is sent, you are unable to change the content so you should double check it for any spelling errors etc.

Select an eCard or invitation design from our card designs, your favorites or your own uploaded card designs.

Step 2. Get your eCard Direct Link

All of your eCards are accessible via a website link. When you send an eCard, there is a link at the top of the email to 'view in browser'. This is the same website link you will use to send your eCard via text message.

  • In the navigation, go to eCards > Sent Cards
  • Click the blue 'Copy Link' button (highlighted in green in this image) to put the eCard website link in your copy buffer

Copy the eCard link by using the blue button that says copy link.

Step 3. Send your eCard link as a Text Message

With the eCard link now copied, close your internet browser application and open your messaging app. Paste the link into the message text box by long-pressing the screen and selecting the paste option.

On an Apple device, you can hold down the blue send button to bring up multiple screen effects. The example shown below uses the 'Confetti' effect. Here are some other effects you can choose from:

  • Bubble - Slam, Loud, Gentle & Invisible Ink
  • Screen - Echo, Spotlight, Balloons, Confetti, Love, Lasers, Fireworks, Shooting Star & Celebration

Your recipient will receive your eCard image as a text message. They can then click on the image to view the entire eCard in their mobile browser, which will include your eCard design, message, signature and custom interface if you have one.

You can send your eCard message with a creative text effect like confetti ribbons.
