ecardfoundry.com (ECF) was formed by two friends, Greg and Jeff, in response to a need for an easier system of delivering simple ecard messages. Together with several associates and contractors, along with their supportive and helpful friends and family, Greg and Jeff embarked on their new project with great enthusiasm in February 2015.
Based on their own experiences, they knew exactly what type of business they wanted ECF to be: a user-friendly site featuring an extensive library of unique, non-animated ecards for all occasions; an easy, one-step/one-click delivery system for all devices; a well-organized table of contents and large, easily-viewed thumbnails; a reasonable price; and most importantly, fair-minded policies for dealing with membership.
As an art director/designer with 30 years of experience, Greg was in charge of writing and creating the library of 1850+ ecards. By employing paper textures and a combination of traditional and computer art techniques, Greg and his team endeavoured to create simple, hand-rendered ecards, completely unlike the computer-generated or photographic look typically associated with ecards.
Jeff, a teacher, with many years of programming and website development experience, along with knowledge of financial systems, was in charge of designing and coding the systems of delivery across all devices and platforms. With a bit of help from some other experts, and a lot of late nights, Jeff researched, purchased, adapted and customized the code on ecard delivery templates and interfaces for payment, membership and social media, as well as developing ECF’s clean and workable website.
After 2 years and countless hours of design and development, and help from many family and friend ‘testers’, ECF went ‘live’ in early 2017.
The team at ECF sincerely hopes that you enjoy their ecards and find them very useful. However, if you have any suggestions for improvement or any concerns, ECF would like to hear about them. Please take a moment and use the ‘Contact’ button at the bottom of the page and let them know what you think.
Thank you for your support, and ecard happy!
