Spread some holiday cheer, one card at a time

<<Every year around this time I start thinking about the annual holiday email I send to friends and family members. I usually email my mom, dad, sister, friends and co-workers. But the one person who appreciates my season's greetings the most โ€” my grandma โ€” is stuck in the pre-digital age of snail-mail. Of course, I could go to a store, aimlessly wander through the aisles, choose a card, wait in line to pay for it, go to the post office, pick up some stamps, etc., etc. โ€” but wouldn't it be so much easier just to fill out a form and have Gmail handle the rest?>>

<<To send a card, visit gmail.com/holidaycard. We'll only be able to send cards to U.S. addresses and to a limited number of people (due to limited Gmail elf availability), so be sure to request one soon.>>

[put at-character here]George R: is that [preprinted on Gmail-postcards, I presume] ยข44 mail stamp image a valid thing? If present on the address side of the downloadable Gmailcards, that is... which of course it can not be.

"Looks like you've already sent a card. If one just isn't enough, you can print and cut-out additional cards."

[You need to do something about the max width attribute of images, Philipp]
