We refer to our original ecard animations as cinematic because they resemble mini-movies that convey emotion and tell a story. Because we are branding experts, we know what it takes to maintain consistency for your company’s brand. Our animations are a mixture of fantasy and realism using various technologies and techniques, both 2D and 3D, that combine together and provide an emotional connection to the viewer watching the animation. They evoke a sense of wonder and reconnect us with our distant memories when experiences were happy and magical.

Custom Ecards: Custom ecard animations are built from scratch, using your idea or we create a unique concept for your company. Since they are original, they take longer to produce. They can be licensed solely to your company for one year or exclusively if that fits your budget.
Pricing. Our custom ecards vary in pricing based on complexity, rendering time and other various components. However they usually range between $3000 – $7000.
Timeline. Approximate completion of these ecards can range from 10 business days to 4 weeks, after storyboard approval.
- Single use for a company up to 1 year
- Exclusive licensing forever (cannot be resold)
What does this mean? If you order a custom ecard animation that we create from scratch and you do not purchase the exclusive license, then after 1 year, we have the right to resell your ecard animation to other companies. We will never create a custom ecard and sell it to multiple companies during that year. So your company will still be the only ones using that design. If you’d like to never allow another company to reuse your ecard animation you can purchase the exclusive licensing and your animation will become a one time creation never to be resold or used by another company (other than your own) forever!
EcardMailer by Brandora is also branded with your company colors and logo to remain consistent with your brand. It has the ability to easily switch the mail server method needed based on the amount of mail traffic needed. It can send several hundred emails to several million, all depending on the needs of your company.
If you’d like to have your EcardMailer online longer, we offer it on a month to month leasing option throughout the year, for things like employee appreciation, kudos/thank you’s, birthdays, product launches, reminders, events, announcements etc. Just tell us and we’ll set it up for you.
If you want a custom ecard animation, we ask for a 50% down payment before we start on the job and the final 50% will be billed upon completion.
Why do you recommend using your EcardMailer Platform versus your company handling distribution of the ecard?
- Our mail servers are setup correct and have great sending reputation
- We performed several HTML email spam tests at mail-tester.com and received 10/10 scores on our perfectly coded HTML emails. This means the chance of our emails being caught as spam are very unlikely. However, every mail server is setup differently and has different configurations of spam software, so we cannot always guarantee 100% deliverability.
- It’s fast and easy for your employees to use anytime they are ready to send out some ecards
- We offer live email and ecard tracking analytics. This is not included if your employees send ecards using their own email programs
- No coding, no formatting, no hosting, no headaches
- We can setup several different ecard animations, HTML emails, and integrate them all in one place
- Fast import of contacts using a CSV file
- We use a local mailserver, MailGun, SendGrid, and Mandrill mail services
- Branded for your company
- Mobile Friendly, will work on any device
- Secure server and login for your employees
