One-of-a-kind cards. Made on the spot.
With Cards, you can be spontaneous about sending personal notes. Snap a photo at a dinner party and send off an elegant thank-you card to the host. Make last-minute birthday wishes feel anything but last minute. Just received a great gift? Send a great card in return.
Each card is crafted from premium cotton paper using a centuries-old printing method that presses a design and ink into the card for a unique look and texture. It’s like having your own personal letterpress.
Make a lasting impression. With a few taps and swipes.
Cards makes it easy and fun to create 10x15-cm letterpress cards. Just choose a design, add your own photos or message, and choose one or more recipients — all with your iPad, iPhone or iPod touch.
Pick a design and make it your own.
Choose from 21 beautifully crafted letterpress designs you can easily customise with your own photos or text for any occasion. You can also resend the same card, invitation or announcement to more than one person. Card History automatically saves your orders, so all you have to do is select a card, duplicate it and choose a new person to send it to. Being nice has never been so easy.
Shoot from the hip. And the app.
Smart cards have arrived. Say you’re on holiday and you want to send a picture of a stunning view to folks at home. Choose a design and take your photo from within the app. To help you perfectly compose your shot, Cards will show you an overlay of the card dimensions along with any graphics and text boxes that might cover up part of the photo. If you choose one of the Travel designs, your location will be added to the card automatically. You can customise the location to whatever you like. And if you choose an existing photo with GPS data, Cards will add that location for you too.
The envelope, please.
Ready to send? Tap to choose up to 12 recipients from your contacts list. Cards addresses the envelopes automatically, but you can customise the recipient names if you want. You can also type in names and addresses from scratch. Cards lets you know if an address seems incomplete or doesn’t appear to match any known addresses.
We’ll add the postage. And keep you posted.
Buying and sending your card is as easy as buying a song or downloading an app. Just enter your Apple ID password — the same one you use to shop on iTunes or the App Store. You’ll get an email confirmation when you place your order and another when your card is posted.
And there’s no need to look for an envelope. Or a stamp. Or a post office. We’ll slip your card into an envelope made from the same premium cotton paper, add postage and send it on its way. If you’re sending a card from inside the US, we’ll even use our own Apple-designed postage.
