CNET News Video: Crafting the perfect virtual holiday card

1:03 /

That letter opener might soon go the way of the Dodo bird. According to AmEx, more and more Americans are sending paperless holiday greetings. Some 34 percent plan on sending holiday e-mails and 27 percent plan to simply post on Facebook. In this Tech Minute, CNET's Kara Tsuboi shares some ways to create digital greeting cards, perfect for sharing your holiday cheer

This holiday season I have a feeling I'll be checking my inbox more often than my mail box as more and more people are sending e-cards. If you're interested in sending a digital card, check out Paperless Post. Their collection of holiday cards with or without photographs is tasteful and well-edited. Prices vary on the complication of the design, but I love the virtual envelope that opens on our recipient's screen. Next download the free app Red Stamp to create and send holiday cards from your mobile device. Upload photos from your camera roll, choose a template, write a message, and then press send to distribute through email, social networks, or text. You can even print your creation, but that's starting to feel so last year. Finally keep track of the cards you send and receive with a $3 iOS app Holiday Cards Tracker. It syncs with your device's address book and could even connect with a printer to generate labels, but what I like about it is the historical record of cards sent and received in past holidays. In San Francisco I'm Kara Tsuboi CNET.com for CBS News.
