CLEVELAND, Oct. 30, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Is your best friend hauntingly focused on winning this year's Halloween costume contest? Do you know the family who freaks out the neighborhood every Halloween when their home transforms into that creepy haunted house? Wonder about the low key couple whose house is eerily dark, just so no one rings the bell? No matter how into Halloween you, your friends or your family may get, the thrilling minds at justWink have the ideal digital card greeting. The free smartphone app by American Greetings Corporation 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.

We've got everything from scary and spooky (think vampires, ghosts, goblins and witches) to sickeningly-sweet (candy corn and pumpkins galore) in our new collection. With 24 different cards, make friends and family cackle with delight (or maybe even squeal in fright) with our hauntingly hilarious bag of "tricks." You'll be sure to knock 'em dead (figuratively, of course) when you send one of these funny Halloween favorites. We also concocted a crazy-cute collection of awesome cards, sure to fill anyone's Halloween with warm wishes.

"Halloween is all about the scary and the candy," said Lisa Wascovich, brand director for the justWink smartphone app. "That's why we've created a group of greetings sure to send petrifying wishes or grossly sweet messages for a Happy Halloween." 

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. Consumers can also find justWink cards for birthday and everyday at participating drug chains, grocery stores and mass retailers nationwide, as well as in American Greetings and Carlton Cards retail stores.
