As of 2015, free, high-quality greeting card verses are available from any online e-card source, such as Blue Mountain, American Greetings and Hallmark. Free verses that can be used in homemade greeting cards can be accessed through websites such as All Poetry.
Free greeting card verses are available in multiple categories covering occasions from anniversaries and new babies to sympathy and wedding wishes. Verses are available for retirements, good luck and expressing pride in accomplishments. General verses for holidays, such as Easter or St. Patrick's Day, are available from Hallmark. Sentiments are organized by collection, such as animal cards or cards to brighten up someone's day, at American Greetings. Search can also be done based on the type of feeling the sender wishes to evoke with the card such as heartfelt, funny or risqué.
The verses in free e-cards are often shown in Flash media. They can be copied by writing down each verse as the animation changes, then compiling the entire sentiment together. When utilizing a poem or verse that is attributed to an author in a greeting card, cite the author's name in the card. Free poetry classes are available to help card senders create their own verses like those found at All Poetry.
