CLEVELAND, June 14, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- While dads all over the world are hitting the links on the golf course this Father's Day, the rest of the family can still send him a greeting card that will make him smile—almost as much as a hole-in-one. The macho minds at justWink have added Father's Day messages, just as handsome as the dads themselves, to their digital greeting card collection. The free smartphone app by American Greetings Corporation (NYSE: AM) is perfect to send a greeting on the go, and now boasts a collection of more than 500 cards that can be sent via text, email, Facebook and Twitter. Additionally, the cards are now available on Windows 8 and can be sent through the web at justWink.com.
This year's digital cards celebrate the day of the dad in a ruggedly awesome way filled with manly messages of compassion. Whether he's mowing the lawn in embarrassingly uber-tight shorts or yelling to turn off the lights, dad always shows his love in his own special way. Now it's time to return the favor. With 14 different bold and sassy new cards, a justWink greeting will match dad's personality and make this Father's Day one to remember.
"Dads seem to always express their feelings in a playful way," said Lisa Wascovich, brand manager for the justWink smartphone app. "That's why this year for Father's Day, justWink wants to give back to dad the best way we know how—with a little unexpected fun."
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, Windows 8, NOOK and 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 justWink app can be downloaded for free for Android, iPhone, NOOK, Kindle Fire and Windows 8, 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.
