Augmented Reality Cards Description
So your first question is just what are augmented reality cards? Let’s get a quick and simple definition of augmented reality, and then we can see how it applies to our photo cards and greeting cards.
At its most basic, augmented reality is an interactive user experience combining real-world and computer-generated content. You may have read about or seen videos detailing how some video games are made more than merely interactive by adding sensory input and output, also called modalities.
Immersively interactive computer programs and video games can use touch, sight, sound, motion, and 3D imaging to provide a deeply immersive interaction. Augmented reality cards are going that far. Because that much interaction requires hundreds of dollars worth of gloves, headsets, sensors, and the like.
The augmented reality cards from Printique have a link code embedded into the physical card. The person receiving the greeting cards can scan the link with a free smartphone app that then plays a prerecorded video that you have already uploaded to Printique.

Sit back and wait for everyone receiving one to comment about them!
Downloading the app is even easier. Your recipients can download it for free, and then they can view the embedded video for as long as the scan code is in the view of the app camera. It’s truly unique and creates special memories for everyone who receives an augmented reality card.
