We’ve Created a Monster!

Here is a sneak peek at two of the five characters for our big Halloween video debuting next week!  We’re taking Starring You to new levels of diabolical personalization, allowing you to affix your head in our symbol technology.  What does that mean?  Facial hair, giant goggles and monstrous features are going to blend right […]

A Few Good Causes

What’s with this blog?  It’s always us, us, us!  Today we want to turn the focus to a few causes that we’ve supported in the past and want to share for people to support through the future!  First up is Dallas Clayton’s children’s literacy project, the Awesome World Foundation.  Dallas is a JibJab friend who […]

JibJab is Coming to Facebook’s Gift Store!

Huge news!  We’re excited to officially announce that JibJab videos and pictures will soon be available to everyone as a part of the Facebook gift store!  This is the first time Facebook has offered anything in their gift store besides their stylishly designed icons and we’re ecstatic to be a part of it!  Our material […]

Make Shift Green Screen

We may have a huge wall in our studio dedicated to green screening items, but sometimes it’s best to have a mini studio right next to your desk, especially when you’re shooting miniature items.  It may be shabby, but it gets the job done!

And the Winner Is…

Our Soul Train contest was won by Kevin Lo, who made a funky Soul Train video starring his kids and amassed 100 people to press the “like” button on his Facebook wall. We think you’ll agree that it’s completely deserving of the win. Kevin will be receiving the package of prizes which we announced earlier […]

Feeling Sporty

With the fall season underway, we’re doing our part to get our Sports section filled up.  Our disgustingly dope design team came up with three sports stills this week, with a few more on the way (racing anyone?).  Check them out, especially the boxing one.  It features our marvelous new black eye technology!

JibJab gets Indexed!

We’re launching a new series of index cards today featuring the venn diagrams and charts of Jessica Hagy, of This is Indexed.  While you’ll find her index cards to be scattered all over our site, we made a category just for our blog/facebook/twitter readers so you can browse the majority of her stuff on our […]

JibJab at TechCrunch50

For those who missed it streamed live, our presentation from TechCrunch50 (the ultimate conference for web start-ups) is now up.  The good folks over at Facebook Connect were incredibly awesome enough to let us talk as part of the Facebook Developer Garage presentation and Gregg wowed em with examples of how we integrated Facebook connect […]

International Talk Like a Pirate Day!

Here at JibJab, we have an affinity for pirates. We work in a pirate ship, after all. That’s why in honor of International Talk Like a Pirate Day this Saturday the 19th, we’re posting up a secret category with our favorite pirate stuff from the website, plus a few fun things we threw together. Give […]

A Rare Display of Business Attire

This week marked Romney’s first day as an official JibJab employee (he had interned with us over the summer) and the man stepped his game up a notch and came in to the office sporting a look that was much more business than casual. You successfully put our tattered jeans and graphic tees to shame […]

Kanye Responds to Sammie’s Great Escape…

Dave from our design team whipped this up today in response to Sammie’s Escape video 😀

Sammie’s Great Escape

Sammie, the office pug, is known for many things around the office… there’s his friendly nature, his wheezing excited grunts and of course his fondness for knocking over trashcans to feast on whatever he finds. It’s the last one that usually means we have to keep him penned into a safe zone for some of […]

Behind the Scenes With The King

With so much Soul Train action all over our site, it might be easy to miss all the intricate new birthday and baby cards we just launched! There are original songs, dances and lots of zingers up. One of our favorites is The King, a rocking and rolling 50’s style birthday bop that will have […]

Matt, Meredith, Ann and Al Aboard the Soul Train!

We were lucky enough to be featured on the Today Show this morning, casting the hosts as grooving Soul Train dancers to hilarious results! The segment was definitely worth sharing, so click the image below to watch Roker and Co shake their groove thangs! Also, don’t forget to follow them on twitter @todayshow.
