Consumers Can Go Green This Holiday With Eco-Friendly Digital Photo Greetings, Newsletters and Invitations From Smilebox

REDMOND, Wash., Nov. 15 /PRNewswire/ -- This holiday season, Smilebox (http://www.smilebox.com/) gives consumers an easy way to go green and send environmentally friendly digital photo greetings, photobooks, newsletters and invitations to friends, family and business colleagues. With dozens of professionally designed layouts for Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwaanza and more, Smilebox users can lessen their impact on the planet and send everyone on their holiday list a rich, personal message including their personal photos, videos and music via email or within a blog.

According to Robert Lilienfeld, editor of the ULS (Use Less Stuff) Report, 2.65 billion Christmas cards are sold each year and could fill a football field ten stories high. "To help protect our environment, we encourage people to send e-greetings rather than printed holiday cards. If we each sent just one less printed card, we could save 50,000 cubic yards of paper," says Lilienfeld.

Smilebox is also an economical holiday choice for consumers by reducing card and postage costs. Users can send a Smilebox for free with advertisements or purchase and send the premium design (with more music options, no advertising and full screen playback) for $1.99 to $2.99. They can change their photos and message and resend their Smilebox as often as they wish with no additional charge. Users can also subscribe to Club Smilebox and get unlimited use of all designs as well as premium features ($4.99 a month or $39.99 a year with a free 2-week trial).

Working with leading digital and print designers, Smilebox has created a selection of more than 60 original multimedia designs for holidays including holiday photo cards, newsletters, party invitations, wish lists and scrapbooks. To celebrate the holidays and support going green, Smilebox will feature a contest to recognize the Smilebox creation that most represents the spirit of the holidays. The contest will run Nov. 23 to Jan. 4 and winners will be selected by a panel of independent judges and announced on Jan. 11. Prizes include a grand prize of a digital camera and five annual subscriptions to Club Smilebox. Complete details on the contest are available at http://www.smilebox.biz/holiday_contest_2007.
