FlipMe(TM) Debuts New Line of Customized Dating Cards
WALL, N.J., Sept. 21 /PRNewswire/ — FlipMe dating (www.flipme.com), chic cards serving as a useful tool in dating, announces the debut of a new line of customized and personalized dating cards. The popular retail and online product is giving singles the chance to personalize their pick-up line and make that connection they might otherwise miss. It’s as simple as looking, liking and flipping.
FlipMe members will be able to choose from four categories of cards: Ice Breakers, Sweet Somethings, What We Consider Funny and Fan Favorites. Each pack of 30 cards is offered in black and red and also comes with three additional blank cards allowing members to personalize their FlipMe message. Customized pick-up line phrases include “I’m flirting with you,” “Consider this a wink and a smile,” “You’re too good for a cocktail napkin,” and “What if this changes everything?” FlipMe’s original card design is still offered for retail sale.
Instead of relying on online profiles and pictures in your search for “Mr. or Mrs. Right,” FlipMe cards allow you to see if there’s a real-life physical attraction before you make your move. By handing them a FlipMe card, you can connect with that person you see in the subway, a bar, or at a coffee shop who makes your stomach flip.
FlipMe dating cards are designed as an open invitation to connect with the person that has piqued your interest without any pressure. This personalized and secure dating card serves as a safe platform to exchange conversation. It is also an alternative to handing out a cold business card, which can come across as a business transaction rather than a flirty exchange.
Each card includes the private online ID code of the member as well as a unique “Card ID” that opens up a secure line of communication between the member and the individual recipient of the card. If the person you flipped is interested, they can log on to www.flipme.com, enter the Member ID and Card ID, and contact you directly.
Creators John and Rachel DeAlto met through a “flip” experience of their own and were inspired to launch this product to make the dating game a little easier and a lot more fun. Rachel caught the eye of her future husband at a restaurant while dining with her parents. Sensing a connection, John left a note with the waitress along with his phone number and asked the waitress to slip Rachel the note after he left. Rachel got the note, had liked what she saw and gave him a call. They were engaged six weeks later and have been married since August 2005.
FlipMe cards are available for $24.99 per pack (each pack contains 30 cards and a three month membership to www.flipme.com). Refill your cards and extend your membership for $14.99 (30 cards and an additional three month membership). If you hand out your cards like Halloween candy, you can purchase extra 10-packs of cards for $4.99 at anytime. There is no shipping fee for any purchase. FlipMe cards are available online at www.flipme.com, and will be in retail stores nationwide by the end of 2010. An iPhone and Blackberry application will also be available by the end of 2010. FlipMe is working on ensuring compliance with EU regulations and hopes to launch in the UK and Europe in early 2011.
