what would be some of the recommended greeting cards software or platforms (paid or free) that we can use in a company such that individual user can also create their own customized greeting card?

I would use Publisher 2016 for that. You can also get it on an Office 365 subscription. Have a look at some of the Office 365 Business Plans for more info on pricing and applications included. The basic Office 365 Business plan lists:
  • Desktop versions of Office 2016 applications: Outlook, Word, Excel, PowerPoint, OneNote, plus Access and Publisher for PC only
  • Web versions of Word, Excel, and PowerPoint
  • One license covers 5 phones, 5 tablets, and 5 PCs or Macs per user  Tooltip with information about operating system requirements
  • File storage and sharing with 1 TB of OneDrive storage
  • Maximum number of users: 300
  • FastTrack deployment support with purchase of 50+ seats at no extra cost
  • 24/7 phone and web support

if you have image editing software (like GIMP or paint.NET) you can easily do this yourself.

here is a detailed article i made for GIMP (but the same principle will work for paint.NET):

Would like to test out hallmark studio and the customer service email mailto:custsvc@hallmarksoftware.com
Is giving bounced email, so not sure if the company or software still working?

Paul thanks for the guide, the users who going to do the greeting cards want something very easy and simple to do, not too much learning curve

Remove the mailto: bit from the email mailto:custsvc@hallmarksoftware.com and use the email address as custsvc@hallmarksoftware.com.
perhaps this will help: MS Office Christmas Cards: i think anyone can download these ― no subscription required.

Follow what Dirk said. In a link, mailto: means to launch whatever email software you utilize and open a new email to the email address that follows the comma.

You can just buy the software. There's apparently a 90-day guarantee. I found a link for a trial version, but it's for the 2012 version, so that wouldn't be a fair way to evaluate.

Did send a test mail without mailto: and still come back bounced
Here is the phone number for their sales department: 877-282-5910 ... I see that they also offer Live Chat.
