Happy Goon: Next Generation Interactive Greeting Cards that Make a Lasting Impression

Buy these high-quality greeting cards online anytime, send them anywhere, and watch them come to life with the Happy Goon app.

New York, NY April 20, 2016 – Happy Goon has taken the age old tradition of sending and receiving greeting cards and given it a digital upgrade. This online greeting card company offers customizable, interactive greeting cards that come to life when paired with the accompanying app. Happy Goon cards can still be enjoyed by those who are not technologically inclined, because they look and feel just like a regular greeting card, but the real magic happens when the person receiving the card downloads the app, points their phone at the front of the card, and the add-ons appear. Personalized notes and even video messages can be added to the card creating a truly unique experience for any special occasion. Thanks to the Happy Goon scheduling feature, these special days will never be missed.  

The system is very simple. To buy a card, a customer visits the website to select a card, creates the message they would like inside the card (or opts to deliver it to themselves for a handwritten note), and chooses the date that the card should be given. As a recipient, they download the app from the website, point their phone at the front of the card, and watch as it transforms in front of their eyes.


Of the several extra features, Happy Goon offers, one that stands out is the delivery service in which the customer can schedule their entire year’s worth of cards in a day. There are also countless ways to personalize the cards to make them one-of-a-kind and a perfect fit for their recipient. Any text can be added to the front or inside of the card in handwritten fonts, pictures and videos can be upload, and this is all seamlessly integrated with the overall experience.

“The greeting card market has been declining over the last few years. In America alone the industry has reduced in size by around one billion dollars since 2008. This is mainly due to the introduction of smartphones and the acceptance of online media alternatives like e-cards. What we are doing with Happy Goon is making it, so you get all the joy and sentimentality of receiving a physical card in the mail, but making it more convenient and enjoyable, like their E-card counterparts.” explains CEO and co-founder, Colin Hughes.

Hughes has worked as a designer for many years and is particularly interested in taking new technology and implementing it in a fun, dynamic way. Together with co-founder and CTO, Tim Mutlow, he has spent the last year developing the Happy Goon greeting card collection, website, and app. What started as a class project at Pratt Institute, now has a live website and its first selection of cards that has been tested and proven to work with the Happy Goon app. Hughes is now ready to make Happy Goon available to the public.

As a way to raise funds to expand the selection of cards available and add even more customization features, Hughes has launched a Kickstarter campaign. Happy Goon greeting cards and Happy Goon greeting card subscriptions are just a few of the exciting rewards available for preorder until May 14, 2016.
