    Elf YourselfJust in time for the holidays, now you can make like Will Ferrell and elf yourself!

    If this doesn’t bring a smile to your face, then you should just go to sleep and wait for Jacob Marley and the rest of the ghosts to come and visit you this weekend.

    I will say I think I make one of the ugliest elfs on the planet though. Hopefully you’re much better than I am.

    You can make one of these little greetings for yourself at Elf Yourself.com and send it to your friends. In addition, although I didn’t do it, you can record your voice greeting to go along with your card.

    I’d love to see you as an elf, so be sure and come back and leave your personalized URL in the comments and share with the rest of us.

    Here’s the link to my personalized card.

    UPDATE: If you’re having problems accessing the Elf Yourself website, try leaving off the “www” in the URL. So, use http://elfyourself.com instead of http://www.elfyourself.com.

        I went to the website Goelfyourself.com and its a blank page! How do you get it to work?

        Gary, the website is just http://www.elfyourself.com. Be sure and let us know what you look like as an elf!

        I can’t get it to open,,,it comes up just a blank page..and i had someone send me something similar to this site …by office max?…can not open it.

      • http://www.uncovertheinternet.com Jason

        Make sure you’re going to http://www.elfyourself.com
        I just visited the site and got right in.

      • Maria

        I tried to look at this too and its not working, just a blank page!!!!!!!!!

      • Maria

        Nevermind, I just found out Office Max took it off.

      • http://www.uncovertheinternet.com Jason

        Okay, I sent the link to a few other people and it’s taking quite awhile to load for them, but it eventually does load.
        Maria, the site is still live if you go to http://www.elfyourself.com directly.

      • http://www.uncovertheinternet.com/go-elf-yourself/ dave

        Office Max didn’t remove it. Today is the first day I’ve been to work since my daughters showed it to me, and I’ve been sending it out to co-workers and friends all day with their pixx on it. I just was on the site seconds ago. If you don’t have a current Adobe Flash version on your computer, you will get a blank page.

      • http://None Ginny

      • Kristi

        Please help!!! Any computer wizzes out there? I did the elf yourself of my kids last year and it worked fine. I try it this year and I get a blank page no matter if I go directly to the link or travel through officemax.com. I get a blank, light blue screen and at the bottom of the page it says done. So I assume it’s not trying to load it anymore. I also made sure I had the latest version of adobe installed and still nothing!!! My kids have talked about this all year and I was so excited to see it, but I can’t get it to work!!!!

      • tyler


      • http://elfyourself courtney

        i want to try this out but i cannot get on the site either. i get that blank page that says done also. did krisit get it going? i need help!

      • http://elfyourself courtney

        the site will not let me look at others that i know did theirs yesterday. why can’t i even see them?

      • Millie

        Keep trying – this year there are four elves dancing. I got the light blue screen that said done, but it was still loading, and did work eventually. Works well if you have a fast computer connection, but sometimes takes a bit too long to load. If it works for any of your family or friends, maybe they could set up the pictures and email the link to you.

      • Pam

        I just got in fine, and am laughing hilariously as I put different faces in. Since my daughter has family of 3, I added a teddy bear in as one of the faces to have 4 elves, its great!

      • Pam

        sorry meant to add the link too


      • Kristi

        Courtney, keep trying. I had the same problem waited and waited. Randomly tried it at 2 am last night and it loaded right up. Didn’t have to wait at all. Needless to say I did not trust that I would get back in today so I did not go to bed til 3:15!! I was able to get on again this morning no problem….

        How odd that you would ask that now. You need a good screen capture utility. Read this post on my other blog to find out how you can get a great one for FREE! http://www.microsoftweblog.com/2007/11/26/get-techsmiths-snagit-software-for-free/

        FYI-If some people are having trouble opening it, try with just http://elfyourself.com , leaving out the www. That worked for me when I was having trouble!! Happy Elfing!

      • Marilyn Monsanto

        Now can’t bring up the emailed elves after I mail it out to others with a copy to me – what is the problem – too many people using it now? Is there a way to get around that. I have the latest version of Adobe reader, if that’s what it needs. Marilyn

        At first this all worked very well. – today nothing is coming up – I’ve tried copy and pasting etc. etc.

      • http://www.adobe.com Landon

        For those unable to see it, make sure you have a current version of Flash Player.

      • http://knhamann.blogspot.com Kristin

        I also found it took quite awhile to load, and finish. And, make sure you use small pictures, because otherwise it won’t be able to scale them down small enough…

        Absolutely hilarious, though :-)

        Is it just really popular already???

        I can see the ones that are on here that are already made….but can’t get into the original site and make one!!!

        Load, Load, Load….then says done about halfway through…????

        What’s up??

      • http://www.uncovertheinternet.com Jason Bean

        I’ve been amazed on the response and activity on this site for a post that was done almost a year ago. It’s fun watching other people’s elfs, but making your own is the key. You can also call a number to record a voice greeting with your elf, however the graphic display of your mouth moving is pretty distracting.

        mine is stuck on save. Anyone else having that problem? What can i do?

        Sounds like the best bit of advice comes from the far east…”Patience grasshopper. Patience.”

      • Trish

        If you get a forward from someone, after viewing it I had to delete their # from URL so you just have http://www.elfyourself.com in the URL. When i went to make your own it just stayed blank. Then i couldn’t email it. I had to copy it where it says copy. When your email pops open click paste and the website should be there.

      • http://www.uncovertheinternet.com Jason Bean

        2MB still sounds pretty big for what they’d probably want. You should be able to get the face portion of the image you’d like to use down to less than 50KB easy. If you need a great, free, graphic editing program, I recommend IrfanView! or Paint.NET

        Bruce I would normally agree with you, and to some degree I do. However, I’ve regularly been hitting the site from the same computer and sometimes can get in with no problems and sometimes I can’t. That sounds like a traffic issue. I believe it’s a combination of both.

      • http://www.elfyourself.com Stephanie

        How did you copy & paste your elf to display on this page? When I try copy & paste- it gives me the link instead of the image.


      • http://www.uncovertheinternet.com Jason Bean

        I used a screen capture utility, SnagIt.

      • http://www.elfyourself.com Stephanie

        Thanks Jason-
        I have snagit and snagit video- I’ll try them both!

        For those of you just getting a blank screen with done at the bottom, you need to have the most recent version of Adobe Flash Player. Go to the Adobe website. It is free.

        The other day it worked several times but now it won’t give an ID # in order to save it or send. BUMMER!

      • karen

        Duh! I just realized that when you click on the copied part that no URL ID shows until you paste it into an email. Then it appears!! I was expecting to see the URL after it was complete, or up in the browser. It is there once you click on it and then paste it into an email. Maybe this info will help someone else.

      • Doug

        This is cute and cool, but it’s also a great way to contribute to spam. Consider that before sending your email around.

      • http://www.uncovertheinternet.com Jason Bean

        Not sure how this contributes to spam. I wouldn’t consider an e-mail from a relative with a link included to their elf as spam. The only way it could be close to spam is if people kept forwarding another e-mail with everyone’s e-mail address still included.

      • Sherry

        This was great. Everyone I sent it to absolutely loved it. Please let me know if and when you get anything other than the elves….this was absolutely the most hilarious thing I’ve seen on the internet. Thanks and keep up the good work.

      • http://elfyourself.com Jen

        I installed the latest flash 9 and the page did not load. But then I tried to remove flash player, went to elfyourself.com, was prompted to download flash and after the installation, voila, it worked.

        To ROZ and for those who are having issues /problems viewing the videos or blue screen (page done) @ elfyourself.com.

        I had the same problems with my Dell Inspiron 9300 laptop and with a 2nd desktop. I was able to fix this issue by downloading Adobe Flash Player from the following webiste:


        Try this fix and let us know if it worked for you.

      • http://www.uncovertheinternet.com Jason Bean

        Another good tip has been to uninstall your existing Flash player and then install the newer one.

      • Steve

        Can anyone help…? Trying to upload and it keeps failing. Yes, I’m making sure my pic is below the max allowed. I’m assuming you upload a normal photo and it cuts out the heads for the elves? Or do you have to cut out the heads yourself and upload those?

      • http://www.uncovertheinternet.com Jason Bean

        For those just tuning in and having problems. Try these tips:

        1. try http://elfyourself.com (leave out the “www.”)
        2. uninstall existing Flash version and reinstall the new one again
        3. to save your elf, use a screen capture utility like SnagIt
        4. to send your personal URL to share your elf with a friend, click on the URL provided to you and then copy it from the address bar in the new window to your clipboard
        5. be patient and keep trying
      • Gary Tellalian

        I uploaded everything fine, but whenever I click on “Send To A Friend” it just sends a blank e-mail. What gives? How do you save and share this thrice-blessed piece of holiday felicity?

      • Johnny D

        Gary, try again “Send to a Friend”. It should open Outlook to send an e-mail. Copy the url, then paste on your explorer browser. Click on “Go”. This will take you to the elfyourself.com website. You should be ble to view the video. Click on Favorites ( star ) and save it to your favorite folder. Open your email software and paste the url and send. This is what I did and it worked for me.

      • schulz

        I dug around and found that it is not possible to save your personal elf yourself to your hard drive because it is saved as separate pieces and built by an application that runs in your browser while you watch it. It is in at least 3 pieces. 1) Your faces are stored in a file named like .png 2) the elf dance movie is saved as a FLV file (FLash Video) 3) the head movements are saved in a third file of XML commands telling the software where to place the head on screen while the movie is playing. You can get all these files in your browser cache – but you can’t make your browser put them together as a movie – the best bet is as they have said previously – capture the video off the screen with SnagIt. -ps

        For anyone having trouble opening the Elf Yourself Link, you may need an update to your Flash player. It is free and easy, go to:


        In the upper middle of the page there is a red icon which will automatically choose the correct version for your computer and begin the download process. Follow the instructions and you’ll be dancing with the elves faster than you say Saint Nicholas!

        PROBLEM: Uploading pix into elfyourself.com — Continuously gives error message, “File Too Big.” Have resized down to 12.5kb, whilst still cutting around face. Error message, still Tried to upload at 250kb — no error message, but kept getting “loading,” – as if time was not a factor (very lengthy).

        Elf Yourself is great and all but if you go to http://www.AvoidtheRegift.com they actually have a story with your faces applied to it. It’s hilarious… picture your friend’s head on a toy paratrooper or a robot… lots of fun.. like Elf Yourself.

      • Marie

        actually, speaking of AvoidtheRegift, here’s one I made of my cats that cracks me up everytime:

      • cstina

        Leaving off WWW does not work.

        Even the ScroogeYourself.com (by officemax) isn’t working. It’s gives a 500 server error.

        I used ElfYourself last year and it worked fine.

        I’m feeling very SCROOGEY about officemax right now =(

      • http://elfyourself Bonnie Hay

        When you make more than one elf you can’t send people the thing when all of the elves dance only the first elf you make!

        they should really get it sorted

        I used this site last year and never had a problem but this year I try to open it and it says “loading” and never opens. Just says “done” on the bottom left. HELP!!!


        iT IS CRAZY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

      • Chris

        I wonder if problems uploading can be due to security settings in the computer? Firewalls?

        I can make links work if I remove the www. but I can’t make my own elves from my computer. It says its loading but never does. Yet I can load the pictures using my husband’s computer. We’re both on the same network, but I wonder if our security settings might be different?

        Thanks Jason. I uninstalled Flash Player and re-installed it again and the site opened without any problems. Also if you do two elfs, we found that the first one you do is female and the second one is mail. Our friends did it in reverse and ended up with his head on her body and vice versa… Oh well! Thanks for all the laughs.

        My apologies to everyone that asked “how” in the comments and I didn’t answer before George challenged your mental capacity. The http://www.elfyourself.com website has been taken offline by OfficeMax, so you’re no longer able to make your elf anymore. Sorry folks, I’m sure they’ll bring it back for the holiday season next year.

        You’d think this concept would get old, but it remains fun and addictive!

        The integration of both Facebook Connect and Twitter, here and lots of recent campaigns, illustrates the importance of encouraging and facilitating a viral loop to your users.

        According to ViralBlog, JibJab removed the required account registration this year due to a significant decrease in site visits from 2007 (193 million) and 2008 (55 million). While they sent out less cards, they greatly increased their database, which was a priority for them.

        I’ve posted more about it here, if you’re so inclined ;)

        I’m thinking about using this technology for a different application, do I need to license it from JibJab or is this something that is simple enough that my company can do on their own?
