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.
How do they work?
Kineticards use augmented reality technology to come to life almost instantly. The experience is as easy as 1-2-3, with a little bit of magic sprinkled in between.

"Bridg[ing] the gap between physical, personal communication and fun, interactive technology."
"An entertaining and sentimental alternative that adds a deeper level of connection to augmented reality experiences."
"They're simple, engaging, affordable, and, most importantly, bring humanity into the technology."
"[Kineticards] turn a kind gesture into a lasting smile."
Kineticards LLC was founded in 2018 by illustrator/animator Chrissy Eckman as a way to bring her two passions of print & motion graphics closer together. After developing the initial concept at the Savannah College of Art and Design, she six months participating in the SCAD+ Alumni Business Launcher program, where she first published the Kineticards AR app.
In June 2018, Chrissy joined forces with the creative folks at a production company called Black Math in Boston, MA, and the team spent months pouring their hearts into the brand for its official debut at the National Stationery Show in February 2019. Today, we continue to work together to design powerful interactive experiences through the combination of print & digital storytelling.
WHAT WE DO
Our goal is to deliver messages that move and memories that last, bringing the excitement of augmented reality into the tradition of sending handwritten messages. We hope our products give you the fuzziest of feelings, and we hope they do the same for whoever receives them.
In addition to working with retail partners to distribute our standard AR-enabled greeting card line, we also collaborate closely with clients of all kinds to bring their custom ideas to life. Every new project or partnership is an opportunity to bring more unexpected magic into this world — and we'd love to work with you next.
