Full Description


Imagine this . . .

  • Receiving flowers or a gift with a greeting card that contains the Sender’s personal voice message! 

     

  • Creating and sending a greeting/gift card containing your personal voice message from your personal computer . . . smart phone . . . or your home/business telephone . . .  at the same time you ordered the flowers or gift!

     

  • Owning this Patented technology that can serve markets such as: Flowers, Gifts, Greeting Cards and Business industries with annual revenues totaling in excess of $298 Billion . . . and having an exclusive product giving your Vendors a major competitive advantage!

VoiceCardsÒ are a simple, convenient, competitively priced, consumable product that enhances the gift-giving experience by adding the Sender’s voice message to a greeting card created in person or over a telephone or internet at the same time the product is purchased. 

 

When the card arrives in the mail or with a gift, the recipient just squeezes the card and the sender’s personal voice/audio message can be played over and over.  The card and gift-giving experience is enhanced by hearing the senders’ personal voice message.  When you care enough, send VoiceCardsÒ . . . "The next best thing to being there!"Ò

 

Over 3 billion greeting cards are sent each year by the $5.7 billion greeting card industry.   Of those, 1 billion birthday cards are sent each year and two-thirds are sent through the U.S. Mail.  The 16,182 U.S. retail florists $5.4 billion industry benefits by offering VoiceCardsÒ to replace current non-billable labor costs with a new high-volume, high-profit margin revenue stream.   The VoiceCardsÒ system and greeting cards are an inexpensive investment and can be utilized by small or large businesses, retail stores, catalog companies and a network of chain stores.  There is virtually no competition to this Patent protected product technology, and no one is currently serving the various $298 billion dollar retail market segments.

___________________________________________________

 

+   A product using existing technology in a creative new application.

+   Retail vendors have Internet access, PC’s, Web sites, and skills to download voice messages.

+   Users do not need any software or special equipment to download sender’s messages.

+   Product (cards and ornaments) are not complicated or perishable and does not have the potential to create any liabilities.

+   Product is low cost, convenient, and is a consumable.

+   VoiceCardsÒ are the only greeting card (or ornament) that can be recorded by the sender over the telephone or

            Internet and can be sent by itself or with a gift.

+   Recipients of VoiceCardsÒ will play them to their family and friends who will want to send

            VoiceCardsÒ to their family and friends.

+   Major card publishers are into recordable pre-recorded sound cards (voice, music and

celebrity voices), but they only offer a 10-second play, not convenient because they have to be                

purchased in a store and delivered  by the customer.

+   Considerable volume of cards through catalog companies and retail florists i.e. Harry & David process 4,000 calls per hour during holiday seasons.

+   Retailers and catalog companies who have the system will sell and advertise VoiceCardsÒ as an enhancement of

their merchandise and promotional services or in lieu of “free shipping.”

of Telefora® and FTD networks, thus saving them membership and order fees.

+   High profit margins ( 40 – 45%) on high volumes of cards sold through a number of established

retail industries in a multi- billion-dollar market. 

+  Essentially no competition . . . that will also allow vendor/licensed companies to enter new markets, create new revenue streams,

            and enhance their products/services with cards containing the senders personal voice message.
