Popular Creatacard(TM) Tablet App from American Greetings Now Available for Android

CLEVELAND, Sept. 15, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- You asked and we listened. The top-ranked Creatacard app is now also available on Android! Creatacard allows children to express their creativity while connecting them with the important people in their lives by having their original designs professionally printed as real paper greeting cards and mailed anywhere in the world. This exclusive capability to create one-of-a-kind "handmade" cards without the mess (you heard that correctly, moms – without the mess!) is free to download for iPads and Android tablets.

Launched last spring, Creatacard is more than just a card app; it breathes life into your child's artwork by bringing their imagination into the real world as a card with the same great quality that consumers have come to expect from any other American Greetings card. This innovative tablet app also offers parents the opportunity to turn screen time on the tablet into a fun and formative shared experience with their children. Creatacard inspires little ones to express their creativity with an impressive and easy-to-use selection of realistic tools like spray paint, stickers, crayons, chalk and stamps in a rainbow of colors and styles – there's even an option to add your own photos and embellish them with cool frames!

Kids will enjoy the chance to be a real greeting card designer, and their official artist status is solidified with the "Made By" spot to sign their name on the back of each card. Parents will appreciate that each card only costs $3.49 to print and mail, and a few small security steps ensure that only adults are purchasing. Recipients will love their unique and memorable card that's sure to become a keepsake.

"At American Greetings, we believe that a drawing is just a card that's waiting to be sent, and Creatacard makes that reality fun and easy," said Radhika Balasubramaniam, senior manager of mobile brands at American Greetings. "Now that Creatacard is available on both iPads and Android tablets, sending smiles across the miles is even more accessible to everyone – and we really mean everyone because we're seeing that adults are having as much fun creating cards as the kids!"
