Anyone that thought card giving was old school is mistaken. Especially if you’ve created cards by Paperspring. Now, the online card maker has combined card creating and technology with the introduction of a new app for your iPhone/iPad touch. The Paperlinks app is tied directly to the Paperspring website. When you purchase a birth announcement, party invitation or holiday card through Paperspring, select “Enable Paperlinks” upon checkout. Your cards will be graced with a barcode, which can then be scanned by your recipients using the Paperlinks app. Paperlinks site. And, once that is created, the recipient needs to know what to do with the card. Plus, they need to have an iPhone and the Paperlinks app. Still, I would love to see this concept catch on. Not only is it "thinking outside the box" but it looks very cool too. You can get the free Paperlinks app today in the App Store.
