Most everyone has made the acquaintance of JibJab.com. Founded in 1999 by Evan and Gregg Spiridellis, JibJab is a digital entertainment studio begun in a Venice, California garage.
Their political satires have made the site well known. JibJab is arguably most famous for its "Year in Review" videos, which are usually released late in December.
Then in 2007, JibJab decided to put photographs of people's faces in some animated JibJab videos with the option to send them to other people as e-cards or "sendables."
Building on their success with “sendables”, JibJab now offers JibJab Jr., geared toward the kids market. This line produces children's books for the iPad. The app allows parents to personalize the stories with a photo and name of their child.
All they wanted to do was figure out a way to earn a living making people laugh. They succeeded.
