Apple’s new Cards app sends greeting card company stocks tumbling

Update on Apple's Announcement 12:00 PST:

NEW YORK — A brief mention of a new app that lets people design and send greeting through the mail with an iPhone is sending the stocks of greeting card companies tumbling.

Scott Forstall, Apple’s senior vice president for iOS mobile software introduced the $2.99 app at an event at the company’s Cupertino, California headquarters Tuesday.

Word that there’s now an easy way to send greeting cards with an app sent shares of Shutterfly Inc. down nearly 11 percent. Shutterfly lets people share digital photos and print them out.

American Greetings Corp., based in Cleveland, is down nearly 8 percent. International Greetings PLC is down 8 percent on the London Stock Exchange where it’s traded.

Hot News: Apple is Getting into the Printed Greeting Card Business

(Regarding press article below) My prediction/comment on this: This could be a very good thing for the entire industry, even though it could have a negative impact on large greeting card publishers.

Apple may actually bring the printed card industry to life since it will surely attract younger buyers and allow for convenience. This could create more people having more experiences of receiving paper greeting cards in the mail and enjoying it, therefore causing them to send more.

The significance of this event is not that this is just an app, but that Apple is doing this, and possibly they are doing it outside of the greeting card industry community.

Cards: Apple’s One-Stop-Shop for iPhone Greeting Cards


Apple is entering the greeting card business with the announcement of Cards, a do-it-yourself application for creating, printing and sending greeting cards.

Scott Forstall, senior vice president of iOS Software at Apple, previewed the application at Apple’s “Let’s Talk iPhone” event Tuesday. Forstall touted it as a one-stop-shop for creating cards on your iPhone.

“It’s a new app that let’s you create cards on your phone … and we’ll do the rest,” Forstall said.

Cards users can select from 21 different designs. Once the card creation is completed, Apple will print out the cards, emboss them, add a mailing address and send them anywhere in the U.S. for $2.99 per card, or anywhere in the world for $4.99. Cards users can also send electronic versions via email free of charge.

Cards is a free download that appears to compete with Postcard On the Run and Postagram, which are also photo-centric greeting card applications for iPhone.
