You are able to select a different theme for your eCard than what you have selected for your website! This will give you some flexibility and variation in your eCard, website and mobile app presentation to guests.
What does this mean?
You can use one theme for your website, a different theme for your Save the Date, and another theme for your Invitations. Here’s an example below:
How does this work?
When you are creating your eCard, you will see the “Edit Design” button to the right of the preview
Once you click on “Edit Design,” you’ll see dozens of our beautiful themes from which to choose for your eCards. By default, the theme will automatically be the same as your chosen website theme or the previous eCard Design you sent out. You’ll also notice that as you click on various designs, the Save the Date will reflect what you’ve chosen in the background.
You can apply the Accent Color you’ve selected from your Design page as the background color for some of the eCard designs. If the option is available, you’ll see ‘Use My Color,” when you click on the design. The color will instantly be applied to the preview:
When you’re happy with the design, click “Done” to save your changes.
What is the default theme when creating eCards?
eCard designs will default to the same design as your website, but when you change the design for your Save the Date, the next time you send a Save the Date, the theme will default to the same theme as the last Save the Date.
What is the default for invitations after a different theme was used for Save the Dates?
Save the Dates and Invitations are separated. So if you update your theme for your Save the Dates to something different than your website, this does not affect the theme for your Invitations. The theme for your Invitations will still default to the same theme as your website, however, before you send the Invitations, you can update the theme for your Invitation to any theme of your choosing including the theme you already selected for your Save the Date.
What happens when we send different batches of Save the Dates or Invitations?
Each batch of Save the Dates could theoretically have a different theme if you wish. Let’s say you send out 50 Save the Dates to group A with ‘Rustic Wreath’ as the theme. Two weeks later, you want to send Save the Dates to group B, 60 more guests. The Save the Date theme for round 2 will default to the last theme you used (Rustic Wreath), but if you decide to switch to ‘Elegant Eucalyptus’ you may choose to do so. If you choose to use a new theme for Group B, the 60 guests in group B will get the new theme. Guests in group A who already received their Save the Dates earlier, will not be affected by this, and if they open their Save the Dates, they will still see the ‘Rustic Wreath’ theme. Each draft/version of Save the Dates can have its own respective theme, and changing it later does not affect already-sent cards.
Can you change the font on the eCards?
Unfortunately, for right now, you cannot change the font or font color on the eCards. By default, the font will be the same as the website, but if you choose a different font under your Design page from the admin dashboard it will be applied to the eCards.
Can we use our website color on our eCards?
Yes, some themes have a “Use My Color” checkbox option. This will use your website color for the background color of the eCard instead of the default background color of the theme. This color is selected in your website color settings. Please note again — this is only available in certain themes that allow for the “Use My Color” option.
Can the eCard “Use my color” be different from the website “Use My Color”?
No, this color will be the same as the one you selected for your website and cannot be changed independently for each eCard or be different from the color used for your website.
What happens if I edit my website color?
If you change your website color, it will also edit/update the background color for your eCards if you have “Use My Color” selected for your e-card theme.
