Each card we make takes anything from a few weeks to several months to complete. Many of the elements of the animation are actually painted by hand (using real paint, brushes and paper!) because the textures and colours achieved that way are so much more attractive than the electronic equivalent. These paintings are then scanned into electronic form, and the laborious process of animation starts. Finally, the music is created to accent or complement the animation.
Back in the year 2000, Jacquie Lawson, an English artist living in the picturesque village of Lurgashall in Southern England, created an animated Christmas card featuring her dog and cats, and her 15th-century cottage, and sent it to a few friends for their amusement. Those friends sent the ecard to others, and within weeks Jacquie was inundated with requests from all over the world to design more. In February 2002 she teamed up with a few friends and family members to create jacquielawson.com.

Over the years the collection has grown to over 400 ecards, each one showing a unique degree of artistry and attention to detail rarely seen in animated cards. Even the music is composed and arranged specially for each one! We now have a range of birthday cards, Christmas ecards, thank you ecards, and so on, featuring dogs, cats, teddy bears, flowers, and many other subjects.

Writing tip: Ages 16, 18, 21, 30, 40, 50, 60, 65, 70, 75, 80, 85, 90, 95 and 100 are traditionally considered milestones. Cards specific to these birthdays will feature the age number prominently in their design, but you can make any card a milestone card (or any birthday a milestone birthday) by writing that shiny new age number somewhere in your personal message.
