You may also suggest to your recipients that they check their spam or junk mail folder to see if the eCard ended up there. Encourage your recipients to add SpiritClips.com to their address book so that future eCards will get through.
We will notify you by email when your eCard or Photo Video Card has been opened.
As SpiritClips grows, more companies will make sure that eCards and Photo Video Cards from SpiritClips are accepted by their systems. In the meantime, we appreciate your business. Thank you very much for sharing SpiritClips.
