CLEVELAND, Feb. 7, 2012 /PRNewswire/ — What do you get when you take a total love-fest holiday like Valentine’s Day and unleash the justWink writers on it? Some X’s. Some O’s. Some things you’ll never see written on a candy heart. This Valentine’s Day the popular justWink card collection by American Greetings Corporation (NYSE: AM) is offering a full assortment of cards, app updates, and a sweet Facebook sweepstakes to offer a little quirky twist on this centuries-old holiday.
A special collection of justWink paper cards can be found in retailers nationwide with 24 designs to send the perfect funny Valentine’s Day note to a spouse or romantic interest. Featuring some seriously funny and sassy sentiments, they make the holiday way less awkward than the days of stuffing a valentine into a paper bag decorated with doilies and rushing away red-faced.
The Android and iPhone app has received yet another monthly update of fun seasonal cards that can be sent digitally via text, email, or Facebook. They pretty much cover everything from the usual hearts and flowers and stuff, but also robots and sexy kittens as only justWink can. Also, for those celebrating singularity (or standing in solidarity), there’s a nice handful of cards to send to friends who might gag if they see another cupid, but could enjoy a little Val-friend action.
iPhone users who want to send a little XOXO to someone special now have an all-new option for selecting and mailing the perfect greeting. justWink cards can now be customized in the popular app and sent directly to the recipient’s doorstep for only $2.99. The card will then be printed on quality greeting card paper and brighten someone’s mailbox in 3 to 5 days or 7 to 15 days (internationally).
“Valentine’s Day is a perfect fit with the justWink brand – it’s bold, playful and sweet,” says Kelly Ricker, justWink brand director. “Between our paper cards offered in-store and our app cards, we’ve got you covered – so send two cards to the people you love! We’re especially excited to offer our new mobile-to-mailbox option for iPhone users, which is the ultimate in terms of convenience.”
From now through Valentine’s Day justWink is also offering a Hot Date Sweepstakes on its Facebook page for a few lucky people to win their very own hot date. One grand prize winner will receive a trip for two to Virginia (land of the lovers!) and four runners-up will win $1,000 to put towards the hot date of their dreams.
