Writing a message is straightforward. Just write like you would write an email or any piece of writing on the Web.

If you want get fancy, though, you can style the text with bold, italics and other effects. To find out how to do that, take a look at this article on the Quillcards Blog about how to use Markdown to style the text in your ecard messages.

You can send as many as you like to people you know personally. That means, for example, no spamming and no sending to business prospects you don't know personally.

How Do I Renew My Subscription?

We do not automatically renew your subscription. You are in charge of that when it comes time to renew.

We'll send you a reminder when it is time to renew, with a link to the page to complete your renewal.

If you missed the renewal email or you let your subscription lapse, you can go to this RENEWALS page.

If you want to cancel your account before the year runs out, contact us and we will deactivate it.

We don't usually issue partial refunds because the subscription is so low. However, if you subscribe and then quickly decide it's not for you, let us know and we will look into refunding the unused portion of the year.

You can see the newest ecards by clicking the link in the sidebar to the Recently Added ecards. It updates automatically whenever we add new ecards.
