"Cinema-what?" - the story behind the YPPS 2018 Holiday card

With overloaded email inboxes, it’s difficult to create a message that really grabs the reader’s attention. One way to do this is to add motion–in the form of an animation. Be warned this approach comes with certain challenges. While web pages can contain animated content of many kinds (such as embedded videos), most of these content types do not work in emails. Email messages can contain graphics, but not many graphic formats can be animated. For example a JPEG file, one of the most common formats for graphic content in emails, can not contain animated content.

Happy Holidays from YPPS and Handsome Dan!

Happy Holidays from YPPS and Handsome Dan!

Happy Holidays from the entire staff at YPPS.  We want to thank all of our customers for their support throughout 2017. It has been a banner, busy year.  Every December we do a creative animated card or game.  This year we featured Yale's mascot Handsome Dan (aka Walter).  This latest ecard has some cool animation with blinking lights. In the past, we've done an animated sled rider and a few fun games.

We hope you enjoy this year's creation from our own Nick Appleby. Happy Holidays, Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah and Happy New Year to all!
