  • Wow, what an exciting service Kudoboard offers! I was gifted the Kudoboard and I am so honored. Having recently retired it is incredible to hear from former students from decades ago. Thank you for creating a service full of heart!

  • It was quite an honour to receive this on line greeting to acknowledge my retirement.

  • My employer initiates a Kudoboard upon an employee’s retirement and invites colleagues to contribute. It was humbling and meaningful to see all the messages. To have these messages available indefinitely to commemorate 39 years of service was important to me. I’m beyond appreciative.

Frequently asked questions about retirement cards

Retirement ECards are a great way to say farewell to a fellow employee or boss. You can also use them to give to family members to celebrate their years of hard work supporting their family. Retirement Ecards or virtual retirement cards are simply an online version of a paper card, but way cooler. With e-cards, you can send the card virtually and add different media to make it ultra-personalized.

There are many free options for retirement e-cards that still offer all the fantastic choices of a paid card. The price varies depending on your needs. If you have more than ten contributors, you may need to pay to add extra contributors. Some e-cards may charge for other features. With Kudoboard, there are different pricing tiers depending on your needs. If you have a business, Kudoboard has many business plans that will allow you to create retirement, birthday, wedding, and anniversary cards for your employees!

Writing in a virtual retirement card is easier than you think! With e-cards, you can add more than a simple text message like “we are sad to see you go! Good luck with your next stage in life. ” With e-cards, you can add things like:

  • Gifs expressing your feelings about retirement.
  • Photos and videos you have of the person retiring.
  • Stories with fun memories of the person
  • Well wishes to them.
  • Add evidence of any accomplishments they’ve made during their career.

Making a virtual retirement card is simple! Choose your e-card site and follow these steps:

  1. Find the “create card” button
  2. Add your information and theirs (usually their email).
  3. Start creating your e-card by changing the font and background.
  4. Add Media (photos, gifs, videos, and text).
  5. Choose when you send the card (if that is an option).
  6. Click deliver, and you’re done!

Ecards take out the hassle of going to the store, picking out a boring paper card that may or may not match the person, writing in it, and delivering it. Now you can do it all from the comfort of your home or office, and e-cards are often more personalized.

Yes! That is the best part about e-cards, you don’t have to pass out a boring paper card that doesn’t have enough room for everyone to sign more than their name. With virtual cards, everyone can add whatever message or media they want. If you’re going to invite others to share well wishes for the retiree, simply follow these steps:
After creating the initial card, add the contributors’ emails (with Kudoboard, they don’t have to sign up. They can simply add to the card).
Send the virtual card to them and let them know they can add messages to the card.

That’s it!

Retirement is something to celebrate! If you’re looking for retirement gifts, this article has information. Check out this example of a retirement e-card. Here are some examples of retirement well wishes to share in an e-card.

The most significant difference between virtual and paper cards is the option for personalization. You can’t add media with paper cards as easily (you definitely can’t add videos or gifs). Virtual cards offer the convenience of adding contributors quickly and easily. You can’t go wrong with a virtual retirement card.

Many e-card companies offer more options than simply sharing the card. With Kudoboard you can print a book of the e-card as a gift for the retiree. If you are throwing a party, you can also make a slideshow of the e-card to show at their party!
