Sending greeting cards to all your friends right from your Facebook profile using Facebook greeting card applications is thoughtful and fun. The apps offer greeting cards of all types including cards for birthdays, holidays, parties, relationships, celebrations, and friendships, as well as cards with humorous, loving, sexy, funny, and edgy content.

The cards are professionally designed and look great.
