JibJab Takes On Instant Messages

Los Angeles-based humorous, electronic greeting card provider JibJab is looking to gain a footprint in the instant messaging and texting market, with a new product it is calling JibJab Messages. The new product allows iOS users to send custom, JibJab style dancing and singing characters--personalized with your own head--to friends. The free app lets users take a selfie of themselves, trim out their face, and insert that into any one of a large library of animated GIFs, and send those via text, Facebook, or Twitter.
