We have a wide selection of professionally crafted eCard template designs all ready for you on Canva, created by our team of expert designers. You need only pick one and start designing by dragging and dropping additional elements into the template.

Want to make a set of designs based on a single template? No worries, you can use the same template as many times as you want, so you don’t have to return to the drawing board every time. Every design you make on Canva will be saved to your homepage, which you can access again anytime you want, and then drag and drop new images, texts, and effects for newer versions of the design, or a brand new design altogether.

Share your eCard in a variety of ways

Once your eCard is ready to face your recipient, you may opt to send it out any way you like. Hitting the Share button on Canva’s menu bar lets you send out your e-card via email or post it directly onto your social media page.

More options? You can choose to download your eCard as a JPG or PNG image or have them printed out in wonderful high resolution as a PDF. Because why not go all the way by going old school too?


Make your eCard jump off the screen with eye-popping images, photos and other graphics. Keep the text to a minimum, but make sure it packs a punch. The best eCard are designed to be sent through email or social media, so be sure your card has the right dimensions and resolution.

To make an eCard with a photo you’ve already found, start with an eCard template and select a background. Then simply upload or drag and drop the photo onto your design. You can create a collage with several photos or keep it simple and stick to one image.

Since you’ll be sending your eCard online, you’ll want to choose a size that looks good across multiple platforms. That’s why the standard eCard size is around 600 pixels wide by 450 pixels tall. These dimensions display well on mobile and in e-mail inboxes.
