New eCard – Bicycle 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 […]

The first annual JibJab summer mix CD exchange!

About a month ago, we kicked off summer by calling on the JibJab staff to create CDs with their favorite tunes to share in the first annual JibJab mix CD exchange! Not only were there some awesome mixes made, but our artists went above and beyond, creating epic album art. From folk to rock and […]

New Weird Al Video Drops August 4th!

We are moving ahead full speed on our collaboration with Weird Al Yankovic, putting together what has to be one of the most insane videos we’ve ever done.  What is it about?  That we cannot say until it’s release, but we can hit you with this teaser image to tide you over.  The video and […]

Getting in the Mixergy [Update]

If you haven’t checked out Mixergy.com yet, you owe it a click.  This morning, Gregg Spiridellis represented half of the JibJab founding duo on a live interview that streamed from the site.  Mixergy’s thing is really unique: Founder Andrew Warner interviews the people behind start-ups and successful business ventures, providing a catalogue of really great […]

Jowls Behind the Scenes Album

Wonder how we made all of that JibJab magic happen in JOWLS?  Check out our Facebook album full of behind-the-scenes photos and get a feel for how much work goes into a minute long animation.  Hint: A lot!

Howl at Jowls!

We’re excited to present JOWLS, a parody of a classic summer blockbuster you may remember.  We’ve had this one in the cooker for a while, as you may remember a teaser blog from a few months ago with a little rubber shark.  Go ahead, star in your own little mini-movie!  Then, tell us what favorite […]

Staff Picks

A site feature that we added a little while ago, and that we love, is called ‘Staff Picks’. It’s exactly what is sounds like: It shows a JibJab employee, their favorite eCard and an explanation of why they like it. Here’s an example showing Lauren (yes, she does always look like that): You can find […]

New head placement tools!

We had so much fun with the video tutorial yesterday that we decided to do another one! You ever upload a head to one of our Starring You cards and found that the head just doesn’t fit right? Well, we now have a solution for you:  last week we added the ability to move your […]

Happy 4th of July!

The site is abuzz with plenty of fun new Starring You pieces for the 4th of July and we think the best way to show off some of our all-American artwork is by casting various commander-in-chiefs.  Enjoy our Independence Day selection and have a safe and happy 4th of July!

In Dedication to Dad

In praise of our pops we’d like to feature a few JibJab dads tonight, by way of our Starring You postables.  These fathers helped shape our staff of funnymen and funnywomen, so give it up for them!  You can make your own over at our Father’s Day category, with dozens of cards to choose from.

Batten down the Servers!

Our technicians have been scrambling in preparation for a potential mega load of traffic following Friday’s release of our new video “He’s Barack Obama”.   Just last week we had Mark, the master of all things server related, head to our secret server location where he helped to install more storage in preparation for the gathering […]

Written Up

Though we’ve yet to play court jester and premiere our upcoming political piece before the President, we’ve still had a few nice shout outs in the media this month.  Today the Los Angeles Times caught up with Scott Kirsner about his new book on digital businesses and we got a shout out thanks to Scott’s […]

No Dearth of Dad’s Day Stuff!

Father’s Day is this weekend, and even though we’re caught in a whirlwind of Obama related madness this week, your good pals at JibJab have not forgotten about dear old dad!  We’re really happy with how big our library is getting, and Father’s Day is a great example of the massive amount of material we’ve […]

Jarl’s in Charge

Typically, we like to use friends and family when we cast a secondary character in one of our Original videos.  For our upcoming Obama video, we needed to find someone in their 40/ 50s with a commanding physical presence to play a military General, and nobody from our immediate circle fit the bill.  So where […]
