Creatacard™ iPad App Makes Grandparents Day Extra Special with Custom Cards from the Kids
CLEVELAND, Aug. 26, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Is there anyone that loves handmade gifts from the kids more than grandma and grandpa? Make their Grandparents Day the most special one yet with one-of-a-kind "handmade" cards from the kids with the Creatacard iPad app from American Greetings. Send smiles across the miles to grandparents that live out of town, or celebrate those that live close by, with a memorable Grandparents Day card. Creatacard is more than just a card app; it's the first and only app that brings your child's imagination to life with the exclusive capability to have their original designs professionally printed as real paper greeting cards and mailed anywhere in the world!
Launched this February, Creatacard adds a dash of magic to the act of sending a card while surprising and delighting recipients with a custom creation designed especially for them. The imaginative app encourages children to express their creativity with an impressive and easy-to-use array of realistic tools like crayons, paint, stickers, stamps and chalk in a rainbow of colors and styles. Kids can even add their own photos and enhance them with fantastic frames, and maybe best of all for parents – no mess to clean up!
Use the Pick-A-Card option for an awesome pre-designed template to add your own pictures and artwork, or choose the Make-A-Card option to create a unique card from scratch. The "Made By" spot on the back of each card for each little artist's name is another personal touch that will ensure this card becomes a treasured keepsake for years to come. Kids also love the 'Where's My Card?' capability that allows them to track the card's journey from the American Greetings factory to grandma and grandpa's mailbox.
"As many grandparents don't live in the same city as their grandchildren, we are thrilled that the Creatacard app can help build those meaningful relationships across the miles," said Radhika Balasubramanian, senior manager of mobile brands at American Greetings. "Grandparents Day is the perfect opportunity for parents to use the iPad for fun, creative time with their children to celebrate their love for grandma and grandpa – and we do the work for you by printing, stamping and mailing the card!"
Grandparents Day is Sunday, September 7, so don't forget to create and order your card no later than Friday, August 29 for grandma and grandpa to receive it in time!
