Cards App: Features and How it works
CUSTOM LETTERPRESS CARDS
You can choose from dozens of designs and personalize your card with a customized message and photo.
- Cards combine a centuries-old letterpress technique with your digital text and photos
- Each card is crafted from 100 percent cotton paper and imprinted with an elegant embossed design
- Choose from dozens of designs for eight occasions: Mother?s Day, Thank You, Get Well, Baby, Birthday, Love, Travel and Holiday. However, you can always customize the placeholder text for any occasion, such as an anniversary or graduation.
- Add a photo to your card or send one with just text
Select a mailing address from your Contacts and place your order in seconds.
- If you select one of the Travel designs, your card automatically displays the name of your current location
- Choose a photo with GPS data, and the card shows the name of the place where the photo was taken
