Customers can create a personalized gift at home for their family and friends for any holiday or celebration by visiting www.twosmiles.com, selecting an artist-created greeting card design, choosing a retailer and gift card amount, and personalizing the greeting.
TwoSmiles by HP offers hundreds of premium-quality designs to choose from for any occasion or special event, including birthdays, Mother's Day and graduations. Printing a TwoSmiles card is easy with HP Easy Print: users simply select the printer and paper size then hit print directly from their browser.
"Many consumers view gift cards as an easy but impersonal gift. We saw an opportunity to combine traditional gift cards with greeting cards to add the extra personalization and human touch that gift cards often lack," said Steve Sandwisch, director, Media Marketing, HP. "TwoSmiles by HP helps customers to celebrate any occasion with a greeting and gift card in one, which can be printed at home -- for an instant, meaningful personal sentiment and gift."
Pricing and availability
The cost of each TwoSmiles card will be determined by the face value of the gift card, starting at $25. The design of the card itself is free.
At launch, customers can choose from more than 20 top merchants, including Barnes & Noble, Lowe's, Marriott and Regal Entertainment Group. With a wide range of gifting categories, customers can create a TwoSmiles card that is truly customized for each recipient.
