JibJab isn’t in the business of taking itself too seriously. JibJab is quick to poke fun at people but not without creating a lasting memory in the process and taking the greeting card business to an unprecedented level.
If you’ve ever seen a giant head, mouth moving a mile a minute and positioned on top of a much smaller body, then you’ve experienced the joy of JibJab.
In short, JibJab allows customers to create wacky, dancing videos of stick figures with the head of a family member or even a celebrity, should the mood strike you. JibJab took this computer program and created hundreds of thousands of online e-cards that give customers the option to customize greeting cards and send them via email.
But Hallmark had better hang on to its socks; JibJab flips the one-dimensional card on its ear with lively videos set to music for events such as Father’s Day, Mother’s Day, Birthdays and just about any occasion known to man. Customers simply can upload a picture of mom, dad, husband or wife – just the head of course – and begin to devise a creative tour de force with the help of video templates provided by JibJab. A few options in terms of templates include adding any face to a scene from a favorite movie, including Star Wars. Finally, your dream of being Hans Solo has come to fruition – in a funny way, of course.
In addition to giving customers a creative outlet for greeting cards and funny email messages, JibJab also creates its own short movies that range from political satires and various commentaries of a variety of subjects.
JibJab is one of those rare entities that is in on the joke and doesn’t pretend to be reinventing a smart phone or developing the newest tablet or computer. The purpose and creation of JibJab wasn’t to change the world; simply to make it funnier through personalized greetings and perhaps, in some small way, deliver a unique outlook on current issues without being overly dramatic in the process.
