MyCardMaker Gets Rid of Free Cards

MyCardMakerMyCardMaker, a printable Card generator, no longer offers Free Cards. As of Thursday, May 10, 2007, you must be a “premium member” to print your card. They used to offer a couple of free cards in each category, but now you have to become a premium member to print any of the Cards.

For a 1-day membership, it’s $3.99 USD. For a year, it’s $19.99 USD. For 2 years, it’s $29.99 USD.

I had actually received an email about this earlier in the week, but I thought it was SPAM, and I deleted it. The email didn’t look very professional at all, but apparently it was legit.

In the beginnings of the MyCardMaker service, you used to be able to upload your own image for the Card cover, or use one of the premade ones, now for free. They then made it so you had to be a premium member to use your own image, and made most of the premade Covers premium member only. Leaving only a few Covers free. MyCardMaker has never had advertisements on their Website.

I think making all the Free Cards paid is a bad idea. If anything they should’ve built up some more (not to mention better) free Cards. Then, just make even better paid Cards, so that if people want fancier Cards, they’ll pay for them.

MyCardMaker pretty much dominated the Free Printable Card Generator market. There was really no other good, professional, free printable card generators.

Maybe I should start up a Free Printable Card Generator site… 😛

    Mycardmaker site is down as of 7-13-08. I’ve never seen this happen previously.

    Any word as to whether the site is permanently gone?

    thanks
