Wear your Ugly Sweater with Stand Up To Cancer!

JibJab is happy to support our friends at Stand Up To Cancer as we all don our kitschiest couture this holiday season! For the second year in a row, Stand Up To Cancer (SU2C) is asking celebrators around the world to proudly rock their hideous holiday-themed sweaters as a way to raise critical funds for innovative, translational cancer research. SU2C’s “Ugly Sweater” Holiday Campaign has officially begun and promises to be even “uglier” than last year.

You can get involved by pledging to wear your ugly sweater day after day to raise funds, hosting an ugly sweater party, or sending a very special Ugly Sweater themed JibJab eCard!

This eCard is free to send this holiday season, so spread the word and get ugly!

New eCard – Cake Party

cake_partay
Cake Party is JibJab’s newest birthday eCard! Take a journey with a shell of a cake, who’s caught in the monotony of his cake life. That is, until he realizes it’s his birthday, and the party begins! How could it get any batter than that? I just hope the cake doesn’t get too emotional or he’ll end up in tiers.

All puns aside, this card begs a terrifying question: What does a cake eat during his birthday celebration?

While you ponder that, don’t forget to remind your special birthday boy/girl to break the cake mold and frost it up on their big day with Cake Party!

New eCard – Birthday Kazoo Guy

kazoo
Looking for that perfect way to give a rousing happy birthday song to the birthday boy/girl? Look no further than Birthday Kazoo Guy! This festive take on a classic song features a beautiful arrangement of kazoo and beatbox, courtesy of Mr. Tim! After all, what’s more soothing than a quartet of kazoo? This card is so ridiculous, it’s guaranteed to cause some smiles.

Want more kazoo? The holidays are quickly approaching, which means it’ll be soon time to kazoo to the tune of Jingle Bells and rock out!

New Thanksgiving eCards!

Thanksgiving will soon be here, and we have two new eCards to kick off the season — Cook A Turkey and Biker Thanksgiving!

We’ve all had that first-time-cooking-a-turkey moment. Hopefully yours went better than it did in our new eCard, Cook A Turkey! Send this card starring the chef of your Thanksgiving dinner to show them what not to do.

Remember that the most important part of Thanksgiving is being around friends and family, so make sure to spend it with those people at your favorite spot — even if that’s the roughest bar in town. You might even learn a surprising new fact about someone at the table! Check out this biker’s secret in Biker Thanksgiving.

And it wouldn’t be a week at JibJab without a new birthday card! Birthday Joker is for the real joker in your life — the one willing to do anything for a laugh.

JibJab staff wears dresses for Halloween, in support of Sierra Leone education!

This Halloween, the JibJab staff are dressed in…Australian school dresses! Why, you ask? We’re participating in Do It In A Dress, an initiative that aims to provide girls in Sierra Leone with an education. Funds donated to the Do It In A Dress campaign go towards scholarships, improved classrooms and sanitation, and business training.

Some staffers are even giving extra incentives for donations, including custom artwork and riding 20 miles on a bike in full Australian school dress. Together, we raised over $3,000, helping 11 girls in Sierra Leone have the chance to wear their very own school dress and receive an education!

Not only is it a great cause, but we look good, too. Check out our class photo below!

The Halloween fun doesn’t stop there! Fresh from the tomb, our sign spinner is back from the dead. Cast yourself or a friend as a mummy, and use fancy sign spinning skills to point your fellow mummies to the Halloween party.

New eCard – Birthday Blast

BirthdayBlast

When it’s your special day, you’re supposed to have blast, right? In Birthday Blast, we learn that the literal interpretation may not always be so fun. Instead of getting a plateful of exploded cake, here are some ways you can have a blast of a birthday.

1) Take a class and let your mind explode with knowledge

2) Set off fireworks

3) Turn it up to 11, and blast some hot beats

Or, save your ear drums/mind and take the safer route. Send the birthday boy or girl a virtual cake explosion with Birthday Blast, and remind them to make their birthday a blast!

New eCard – Purrfect Birthday

purrfect
Let’s be honest. The Internet would be far less enjoyable without cats. But what if you could bring the fuzzy creatures out of the screen and into your lap? You can get a little closer to realizing this dream with our latest Starring You eCard, Purrfect Birthday! We spoke to the creator of this purrfect card, Megan, about the Internet and cats.

1) Where did the idea for this card come from?
I like the internet – the internet has a lot of cats – WHAT IF WE COULD DOWNLOAD THE CATS!? And hey presto!

2) What would be your perfect birthday?
A surprise visit from all my friends back home in Australia! Plus a surprise giant vegan birthday cake made into the shape of a giant vegan whale! My birthday is coming up, so fingers crossed.

3) What would you do with a bunch of digital cats?
I would email them to my friends who needed cheering up.

4) In today’s day of extreme hoarders, do you think we need to worry about people hoarding digital cats?
It really does seem to be the way we are headed. Could be a great new reality show?

That’s a reality show I could get behind! Remember to make birthdays purrfect by sending Purrfect Birthday!

New eCard – Center of Attention

center of attention
In our newest eCard, Center of Attention, we learn that you deserve to be the center of attention if it’s your special day, without having to resort to demeaning methods. If someone does happen to steal your spotlight, never fear! We’ve provided a few other ways to become the center of attention.

1) Start a cool science experiment

2) Start screaming

3) Start your own dance party

4) If those fail, take a page from the cat’s handbook.

See? No need to whore yourself out to get the attention you deserve. Tell your birthday girl that she’s the Center of Attention!

Laughter is contagious!

The only thing better than creating a JibJab eCard is sending it, knowing that the recipient will soon be in fits of laughter and wearing a huge smile. Join us as we witness that magical moment when these people realize they’re the star of the show.

We dare you — try NOT to smile at these! ;)

JibJab reactions don’t just come from adults — children love seeing themselves as the star! Next up is this 3 year-old cutie, laughing along to Sled Race, featuring her, her mother, and her father.

Finally, enjoy little Ella, whose mood instantly improves when she sees herself in the video.

What’s the best reaction you’ve ever had from a JibJab eCard? Let us know, or send us a link to your video!

New eCard – Bicycle Birthday

Bike Birthday

In our newest eCard, Bicycle Birthday, encourage your birthday boy or girl to keep rollin’, no matter how they do it. We’d like to wish a happy birthday to these celebrities who have kept it rollin’ throughout the years.

Yvette Nicole Brown, 42 today, rolled right outta Cleveland and into television, starring in shows like Drake & Josh and most recently Community.


French President Francois Hollande has kept himself, his country, and the Tour de France rollin’ for many a year. Joyeux anniversaire!

Screen Shot 2013-08-12 at 9.25.56 AM
Deimos, one of Mars’ moons, was discovered today in 1877 by Asaph Hall, and has kept rolling (well, orbiting technically) around Mars ever since. I feel like there’s a song about this…

Know a birthday boy or girl who’s kept it rollin’? Send them the Bicycle Birthday eCard!
