There are so many ways to celebrate Valentine’s Day. For the romantics, it’s a day to share exquisite poetry and special moments with your favorite person. For those with a funny bone, the holiday is perfect for sharing puns and silly love quotes. 

No matter how you like to celebrate, finding the perfect online Valentine’s Day cards is often the first step in marking the special occasion. Here, we’ve gathered our favorite online valentine cards that share the love (and laughs).

Advantages of Online Valentine Cards

When it comes to valentine cards, sending an online version has many advantages. First, it’s an easy way to send last-minute cards in case you forgot someone or simply procrastinated. Online cards are instant. With just a few clicks you can send a customized valentine card to anyone using their email address, phone number,  social media handles. No worrying about paying for postage or how long it takes for a letter to arrive.

Another advantage of online valentine cards is that you have significantly more design options. Instead of perusing the shelves of your local store and picking the same cards as everyone else, you can choose from hundreds of professional designs. These include funny valentine cards with clever puns as well as sweet love notes that would make cupid proud. In other words, there’s a design for everyone.

Another bonus: You can also upload your own custom designs for a truly unique valentine’s message your friend or loved one won’t soon forget. You can share a favorite photo and add your own words, whether it’s poetry for a romantic valentine or an inside joke for Galentine’s Day.

There’s also an environmental benefit to Valentine’s Day ecards. Most valentine cards are thrown away, creating unnecessary trash and leading to a wasteful holiday. But it doesn’t have to be that way. With digital valentine cards from Greenvelope, there’s no paper waste.
