Greeting Cards: 6 Reasons to Try Something Different

GLTYR creative greeting cardsMost of us send cards or include them with gifts. Yes, they’ll set you back a few dollars (actually about $3-$5) and you have to remember to buy one in the first place. But sending and receiving cards is pretty universal and has been as long as anyone can remember.

According to the Greeting Card Association, however, sales of greeting cards continue to decline. Sales went from about $7 billion/year over the last year, down to about $6.5 billion in 2013. That’s a serious hit.

There’s a good reason. Technology has taken greeting cards to a new level. The gurus at GLTYR Card™ have found a way to package a total greeting card experience in a mobile app. Here are 5 reasons why you should check it out:

1. Takes only 5 minutes to download, set up and create a card.

2. Lets you include a photo, some text, a video and even an audio. (So you can record your own off-key “happy birthday song” and do a video of the gang singing it.)

3. You don’t have to sign up and “join” anything! (the people you send it to don’t have to join anything either!)

4. It creates a mini personal website with a private link that you can share with anyone, anytime, anywhere in the world.

5. No stamps to try to find
