Free Post(e-)card

I like e-cards that let you customize them to your liking.

As well-intentioned (or not) as several e-card services are out there, it's getting harder and harder to find one that isn't annoying, chessy, ad-ridden, or all the above.

Then I found Simply upload an image file and an MP3 to the free, no-registration-required site, add a message, and mail it out.  The recipient gets a link to your e-postcard page, with no ads in sight (at least for now, crossing fingers).

This means you can be as cute, clever, snarky, or affectionate as you want.  I recently put together a simple collage for my friend's big 25th (used Picassa to accomplish this), slapped on a good song, and before you can finish singing "Happy Birthday", it was in her email-box  ready to be enjoyed.

It sure beats letting some oddly-shaped critters express your wishes in off-the-wall ways.
