PowerPoint: 2014 Animated Holiday Greeting Card
Here is my holiday gift to you. This year’s Animated Holiday Greeting card features a calming, retro design with a traditional seasonal music track. Feel free to customize the signature and pass it on to your family, friends and business colleagues.
This year’s card comes in 2 versions, so you can choose between a Christmas or Holiday greeting. To preview each card in a video format and hear the music track, click on either image below.

You can replace Sandy’s Signature by following these step (instructions are for PowerPoint 2010 and 2013):
- Remove Sandy’s Signature by selecting it and hitting the Delete key.
- Type in your personal signature. If you are going to send this as a PowerPoint presentation you’ll need to make sure that you use a Safe Font like those found here: “Safe Fonts” *
- Now animate your personal signature. With the signature selected, navigate to the Animation Tab in the Ribbon. Give your animation the following setting: Wipe | From Left + Duration: 4 seconds + Delay 40:90 seconds.
If you plan on using a Font that is not standard to Windows or Mac, you’ll need to either save it as an image (Cut > Paste Special > PNG) or convert the text to a shape. You can do that by following steps in this tutorial.
To enhance the viewing experience for your recipients, save the file as a PowerPoint Show or a Video before sending it.
