Title: Cartolina and Cartolina — Season’s Greetings
Platform: iPhone, iPod Touch, iPad
Cost: $1.99 each
Cartolina and its’ twin seasonal App’ can help you express both season’s greetings and the subsequent requisite gratitude in a timely manner without abandoning’ old-fashioned charm.
Each app features a selection of lovely, Victorian-inspired templates, customizable with messages of up to three lines (of about 19 characters) each. The completed messages can be sent as either texts or email.
Cartolina’ is the brainchild of Canadian graphic designer Fiona Richards. Currently,’ each app only features the nine’ card templates’ and a calendar function for recording reminders, but new designs are promised for current app owners.
So, if like the heroine of Peggy Gifford’s’ ‘ Moxy Maxwell Does Not Love Writing Thank You Notes, you aspire to finish your thank you notes the day after Christmas, Cartolina offers an expedient option. And while the electronic expressions of gratitude might not satisfy every gift-giver teens are obliged’ to thank, it is a nice option’ to insert a flourish of’ aesthetic appeal into’ what’ might otherwise’ be a telegraphic electronic communication.
