WARRINGTON, England, April 28, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --
On April 29th 2014 CRAFTSUPRINT.COM launched Crafty Bob's FREE Card Creator in a bold attempt to take a market share in the fashionable Personalised Printed Cards market. The market is currently dominated by two big players, Moonpig and Funky Pigeon, however craftsuprint.com hopes that the Crafty Bob Card Creator's unique selling points will help them gain a lead on their rivals.
Rob Jackson, CEO at craftsuprint.com explains:
"The main advantage we have over Moonpig and Funky Pigeon is that our service is quicker and completely FREE. Unlike our competitors we email the finished personalised card to our customers as a downloadable file ready for them to print on any inkjet printer. This unique selling point means that our customers get their printable cards in seconds and there is no chance that their specially designed cards will get lost in the post or delayed by postal strikes.
If you need a quick card then the Crafty Bob Card Creator is the perfect solution. How many times have you nipped out in the rain to buy a greetings card from the local shop and paid over the odds? How many times have you wished there was an easy way to make the kids' Birthday Invitations or Thank You cards? Printing your own greetings cards is the future, not only because the service is FREE but because the delivery is instant and can be applied globally.
Advancements in home printers mean that you can now create your own quality cards at a fraction of the price of what you can get them on the high street. The Crafty Bob Card Creator is going to change the Greetings Card Industry forever: everybody knows that digital is the way forward and craftsuprint.com has come up with a concept that is just too good to fail. Couple this with our unique artist affiliate commission, which means that there will soon be 1000's and not 100's of FREE personalised cards to choose from.
The response to our new initiative has been overwhelming and our new Crafty Bob Facebook App is currently trending as word spreads about this fantastic new facility.
In the future we can see a Crafty Bob Card Creator in every supermarket, offering customers the facility to make their own instant personalised cards cheaply and quickly as they bluetooth photos from their mobile phones in store."
The Crafty Bob Card creator was recently independently reviewed in Simply Homemade Magazine issue 42, published by Practical Publishing and this is what they had to say:

Taking some practical and sensible steps to reduce risk can also help provide a basis for a successful cloud transition. A plethora of surveys from the likes of IDG and Gartner show that more than 70 percent of enterprises have deployed at least one or more cloud application or workload. Y...

Microservices promise to allow teams to move away from monolithic "ball of mud" systems, but the reality is that, in the vast majority of organizations, different projects and technologies will continue to be developed at different speeds.

Too often with compelling new technologies market participants become overly enamored with that attractiveness of the technology and neglect underlying business drivers. This tendency, what some call the “newest shiny object syndrome” is understandable given that virtually all of us are heavily engaged in technology. But it is also mistaken. Without concrete business cases driving its deployment, IoT, like many other technologies before it, will fade into obscurity.
