Bear St. eCard Sending Instructions:
  1. Type in Receivers eMail address and name, these are both very important and necessary in delivering your card. Please ensure the accuracy of this information.
  2. Now have some fun!! The 'Cover Greeting' is the phrase that will appear on the eCards front cover. The 'Cover Greeting' is live, so as you type, it will auto-size and wrap your text. All you have to do is enter your initial greeting and watch it appear! If you think the card is too cute to mar, don't type anything in this field and it will be sent blank.
  3. Change your eCard with one click! Right now, you see Spanky, but how about Creampuff or Mooky, each in their own setting? To change your eCard, simply direct your mouse to the vertical strip of pictures to the right of the entry fields and to the left of the main eCard graphic. Now click on one! These graphics are miniatures of the 'real thing', but will give you other great card ideas. Your 'Cover Greeting' and 'Inside Message' will follow along with each change you make, so don't worry about losing all your work.
  4. Now that that is done, click on the card cover to reveal the inside of the eCard. This is where your 'Inside Message' will appear. Although you can complete the entire eCard without viewing this portion, we do recommend it, you might have something to add! Flip back and forth from the inside to the cover graphic by clicking on the eCard body, you may also reference your WWW Browser's status area for informative messages.
  5. In the field labelled 'Inside Message', you can again type whatever you like. The text is again auto-sizing and wrapping, so knock yourself out! As before, if you would like this to be sent blank, don't type anything at all in this field.
  6. The 'Salutation' field is where you let your eCard Recipient know who sent them such a wonderful "hello". We recommend signing your eCard appropriately.
  7. All we need now is your complete and valid eMail address. Invalid senders eMail addresses will result in delivery failure.
  8. That's it! Just press 'SEND', and the Bear St. eCard will indicate when your card is sending, and has been sent successfully.
