are the newest innovation in Greeting Cards that combine both a photo and video in an augmented reality experience. Imagine getting a birth announcement in the mail from your best friend. There is a photo on the announcement with an icon that says, “View with PopCards”, a downloadable iOS or Android app. You view the photo and it instantly comes to life with a full video of the mother introducing her new baby to the world.
PopCards is a new augmented reality innovation powered by the Layar technology. Layar is the leading developer of augmented reality software for the printing industry.
PopCards, LLC was founded in 2014 by partners Kurt Johnson, Phlayne Anderson, Stephanie Hansen and Jeffrey Weinand. All four had worked together in the digital web-to-print industry where they created a wide range of printing and mailing websites. During that time augmented reality technology was introduced to the market and the partners saw the implications with print. PopCards was developed as the first smartphone app that created printable and viewable augmented reality content that could be used in print. Our goal is to revolutionize the Greeting Card industry. I mean, who wants to look at just a photo when they can create a photo that comes to life with a video experience?
Our goal is to revolutionize the Greeting Card industry, but our mission is to do some good along the way.
Children’s Cancer Research Fund (CCRF) invests in lifesaving, leading-edge research in the prevention, diagnosis, treatment, and cure of childhood cancers and blood-related disorders. PopCards’ partner Stephanie Hansen serves on the CCRF Board of Directors and is a stage 3 breast cancer survivor. To support childhood cancer research, $1 from each card ordered will be donated to Children’s Cancer Research Fund.
