PRESS RELEASE: Tukaiz Launches Captivating “PixyMe” iPhone Application
Exciting New Way to E-Mail, Text or Print Personalized Greetings and Postcards Leaps to the Top 100 Paid Social Networking Apps
Franklin Park, IL, February 8, 2010—Tukaiz, a leading provider of results-driven marketing communications services, has launched PixyMe™, an iPhone and iPod touch application that is the first of its kind using true-to-life image personalization technology to create and send a personalized postcard via email, text message, Facebook, or an actual printed postcard through the mail. PixyMe’s fast rise in popularity to the Top 100 Paid Social Networking Apps stems from the fact it is unlike any other postcard messaging application on the market today. PixyMe connects you with family, friends, or other social networks by artistically placing the recipient’s name into an image to appear as if it was photographed that way, such as the name spelled out across the horizon over a lake at sunset or written on the snowy windshield of a car. The power of PixyMe is its one-of-kind creative approach to picture personalization that is designed to elicit emotion and smiles.
Some of the key features of the PixyMe application are:
Loaded with over 100 images (visit the supporting page for a preview or to try the technology) broken down by categories such as travel, holidays, celebration, kids, and more
The ability to key in a name or greeting and watch as the text gets transformed as part of the image with amazing realism
Provides several custom frames that wrap the personalization around photos from your camera or photo library
The ability to add a personal note on the postcard and share it via Facebook post, email, text message or by print
Fast production of image personalized printed postcards
Fast delivery of printed postcards anywhere in the world including a real stamp mailed First Class
The process is quick and effortless. Users simply visit the App Store from their mobile device or on iTunes and purchase PixyMe for $1.99. The postcards, which are 4.25" x 5.625", are printed on gorgeous card stock and mailed anywhere in the world with an actual stamp included in the price. There is a charge of $1.99 per printed postcard mailed in the U.S., and $2.99 for postcards mailed to all other destinations.
“You have to experience this app to realize that PixyMe is specifically designed for people who want to reach out to others with a greeting or message that will really wow them,” said Frank Defino Jr., vice-president and managing director of Tukaiz. “Once a user shares the PixyMe experience with friends or colleagues, they find it is definitely attention-getting and like no other postcard messaging app on the market. We are excited that PixyMe is the first app of its kind to hit the App Store and that it is catching on so fast.”
