Finding the perfect card for a special occasion is a thoughtful and personal gesture. The problem is that most greeting cards are so common that they can feel impersonal.
Sure, you can personalize printed cards by adding your own personal message or go the extra mile by drawing funny little pictures or sticking photos from the good ol’ days. But, the whole process can take a lot of time.
A definitely more convenient option, ecards are a great way to tell someone how awesome they are. But, the trade-off is that ecards can often feel even more impersonal. Ecards are still nice to receive, and they can be pretty funny at times, but they lack the personal touch that is crucial to properly express sincerity.
Now, imagine the perfect ecard... with a twist.
Imagine the convenience of sending an ecard without losing the sincerity of the gesture. Instead of writing a message, record a video of yourself saying your message as if you were talking to the recipient in person.
Thanks to technology, recording a video message is as easy as texting. Receiving a video message is thousand times more personal than any paper card or ecard because the recipient can see you and hear you. Video messages evoke a deeper and longer-lasting impact on emotions. Whether the message is lighthearted or heartfelt, a video is as meaningful as any message can ever get.
Make a surprise video montage with friends and family telling the recipient why they’re amazing. Use VidDay, the online video maker, to invite people to submit video messages. Then, the VidDay team takes all the video submissions and turns them into a beautiful video montage for you. It's like a group greeting card that is signed by everyone, but better!
Creating a video montage is more than just turning video messages into a slideshow. You can also take a walk down memory lane by adding photos. We make it easy to rally people together by getting them to submit video messages and photos for an unforgettable surprise video montage instead of a normal card. It’s so easy that anyone, no matter their technical skills, can deliver an unforgettable, hilarious, and often heartwarming video montage made with friends and family.

The truth is, many paper cards end up in the trash or recycling bin after a couple of days... and an eCard usually gets lost in our inbox. But a group video montage made with VidDay is more than an ecard — it's a memorable keepsake compiled with many loved ones which people can view for many years to come.
Overall, it goes a long way to take an extra minute or two to record a short video message for a lucky friend. The truth is, recording a video message in celebration of a special event is remarkably easy, and you don’t need to be tech-savvy either.
A video message is an unexpected gesture and a surprise that is sure to be sincere.
