Press release from the issuing company

Melville, N.Y. – Mother’s Day, birthdays, anniversaries, – all of these big holidays have something in common: greeting cards. When 82% of Americans choose printed greeting cards over their digital counterparts1, the demand for high-quality greeting cards is astounding. In the spirit of celebration, Canon U.S.A., Inc., a leader in digital imaging solutions, is excited to work with Card Isle Corporation to help bring the ease and convenience of printing greeting cards at home to Canon customers with the new Card Isle Print-at-Home Platform.

Compatible and available with four Canon PIXMA-series printers the PIXMA TS9521C, PIXMA TS9520, PIXMA TS8220 and PIXMA TS6220, the new online platform allows users to design, purchase, and print full-sized 5 inch x 7 inch greeting cards in the comfort of their own homes. Card Isle offers thousands of crowd-sourced designs by local and independent artists, and a user-friendly dashboard making it easy to personalize greeting cards for any event, holiday, or special occasion.

“We have showcased Card Isle as a great visionary in the past, and we are excited to expand our relationship and be able to now provide our customers access to customize and print, meaningful greetings cards from the comfort of their home,” said Kazuto Ogawa, president and chief operating officer, Canon U.S.A., Inc. “We have seen a shift in how consumers are using print within their daily lives – from personal use to home office needs, therefore it is imperative that our products extend beyond traditional usages and offer variety to our customers and we believe this platform delivers just that.”
