Simple to Use

To use, all you need to do is scan the code inside the card and accept the App Clip prompt.


No App Required

As long as you have an iPhone iOS 14.5+ enabled, all you need to scan a code is your camera app.


New Card, Same Charm

Our cards are designed with a bright, lively style that’s sure to bring a smile, even without the iPhone.
