Like all ideas, the vision of Card Isle existed in our founders heads for a while, but has since progressed through many real-life iterations. The irony of making this crazy notion of a greeting card kiosk a reality, is that it starts to feel a lot less extraordinary in our minds. That is, until our team talks to artists, investors, people we meet everyday and they say, “Wait, wait, wait…how does that work again?” So, by popular demand, I thought to break down our kiosks here in the blog. It’s kind of a little belated introduction to who we are and what we’re all about.
Hi! My name is Card Isle!
Card Isle is our company. Card Isles are our fun, convenient card aisles of the future. See what we did there? A Card Isle is about 2.5 feet wide, less than 2 feet deep, and 6.5 feet tall. It thrives on corporate campuses, in college towns, hospitals, and grocery stores and drug stores, but is highly adaptive so you can request a kiosk in your area. The care and keeping of Card Isles is taken care of by qualified Card Isle technicians. When you meet your first Card Isle, here is what you can expect.

Time for the magic
Once you’re set with your card, the Card Isle gets to work its magic. Thanks to our professional quality printers, your one-off card is created cleanly in high resolution. Our paper is 60lb stock with a luxurious textured exterior for a bit of pizazz and refinement. Remember to take an envelope. They come in white and soft brown. Card Isles accept credit and debit cards. If you buy 3 cards, your fourth one is free. That’s four opportunities to brighten someone’s day with a greeting card in the mail.
