What are kineticards?
With Kineticards, you can make special occasions even more memorable by adding magic to the messages you share. Each one of our cards comes to life through the free Kineticards AR app, which reveals hidden animations and music within every design. Say goodbye to throw-away greeting cards and eCards that get lost in Spam filters; Kineticards are tangible gifts that create unforgettable feelings, and they're worth a million words — plus however many more you choose to write inside.

Kineticards was founded in 2018 by Chrissy Eckman, illustrator/animator who sought to find a sweet spot between the two worlds of print and digital design. A recent graduate from the Savannah College of Art and Design, she was selected as one of the first-ever participants in the SCAD+ Alumni Business Launcher program, where she developed her early prototypes for AR-enabled greeting cards.
In June 2018, Chrissy joined forces with the creative folks at a production company called Black Math, and Kineticards moved its headquarters up to Boston, MA. Together, the team spent months preparing the brand for its official debut at the National Stationery Show in in February 2019.
In addition to selling wholesale products, we also work closely with clients of all kinds to bring their own custom projects to life. We'd love to work with you next.
