These are wonderful, unique examples of print – and right in time for the holiday season! It’s no surprise that holiday greeting cards are becoming more interactive. My favorite example: Hallmark’s webcam greeting cards. They really up the ante on how print can be interactive and truly come to life. And I love the personal video message that Cornerstone Creative launched -- I may have to try it this season! These examples clearly demonstrate that print has come a long way and we anticipate that augmented reality and other technologies will continue to bring new interactive capabilities to print. Print can help to be the conduit, creating unique and valuable user experiences through the combination of both media—and this is something that we all can benefit from, especially this holiday season!
