CLEVELAND, Nov. 21, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- As people everywhere sit down to yummy platters of carb-laden goodness, justWink fans will find there are a few more things to be thankful for this year. The popular card line and corresponding smart phone app by American Greetings Corporation (NYSE: AM) has introduced consumers to the ultimate choice on how to connect with friends and family. Now to offer them even more exciting card sending options, the free app is available on Kindle Fire and has added all-new Thanksgiving content and the "real mail" option for Android.
From purchasing a card in their favorite retail store, sending a friend a funny note while waiting in line holiday shopping, or creating and mailing a card from their smart phone, justWink has been putting super cute, hilarious cards directly at consumer's fingertips. A QR code on the back of each paper card directs consumers to download the free app for Android and iPhone. Digital cards can be created and sent for free through the justWink website, NOOK, and now Kindle Fire. Additionally, both iPhone and Android users can personalize a card within the app, select the "real mail" option, and send that card to a friend's mailbox for $2.99.
The Thanksgiving digital card collection ranges from light meat to dark meat, with 19 holiday designs in the app to celebrate whatever or whoever is on one's thankful list. Taking a lighthearted look at everything from the natural beauty of the fall season to the absurdity of stuffing a turkey carcass with breadcrumbs, it's pretty much got the holiday covered.
"We've been so thankful for the fan response to the card line and app that we feel continually inspired to give even more back to our fans—more great cards and more features that making connecting with friends and family easier and more fun," said Rob Matousek, brand director for the justWink app. "We now have more than 500 cards available in the app, are available on every major platform out there and always look for new ways to help our fans stay in touch with their networks."
Consumers can find justWink cards at participating drug chains, grocery stores and mass retailers nationwide, as well as in American Greetings and Carlton Cards retail stores. The justWink app can be downloaded for free for Android, iPhone, NOOK, and Kindle Fire giving users 24/7 access to the complete collection of digital cards that can be sent via text, email, or Facebook. The app now contains more than 500 cards as well as the ability to add signatures (or doodles) and photos to cards and Facebook-powered birthday reminders.
