How often do you send physical cards to others through the mail? Does anyone other than grandma get greeting cards from you in the mail? It used to be that people would send birthday wishes, congratulations messages, get well cards, and condolences through traditional postal services to friends, families, and colleagues where they would then sit on the mantel for weeks before finally being relocated to a drawer somewhere. Now, birthday wishes, baby announcements, and party invitations are quickly typed up in emails or on Facebook. They may be more convenient, but they have no staying power.
American Greetings has the ability to change that with Creatacard. This new app lets kids create cards using digital drawing tools, stickers, paint brushes, and more, right on the iPad. Then, you can mail a physical copy of the card to your friends of family as a professionally printed greeting card.
