Spectacular new video-based cards vastly surpass others on the market

SANTA BARBARA, CA - May 8, 2007 - Ever wanted to send a sophisticated online card but couldn’t find one? Now you will. Video-based, nature inspired Three Leaf Cards (www.threeleafcards.com) transform the hottest technology on the Internet into spectacular online greetings. And these cards give back: 10% of the annual membership fee is donated to the environmental or social justice Nonprofit Partner the member chooses. Watch this video to learn more about Three Leaf Cards.

"We want to save the planet one online card at a time," says Managing Partner Steve Knaub. "We knew we could produce video-based cards that would surpass anything on the market today, but that wasn’t enough. We wanted to have a business that would help to restore the planet. These are sophisticated cards you can feel good about sending."

Unfolding from elaborate envelopes or attractive gift boxes on screen, the cards open to reveal bright, serene, and majestic nature scenes in vivid hues. Clouds rolls across skies, waves lap on tropical beaches, cliffs glow in sunset light—these cards take already stunning vistas and enhance them to extraordinary, dreamlike places.

The artistic guru behind Three Leaf Cards’ dramatically beautiful nature scenes is Andy Atkins, Creative Partner and co-founder. "The process of creating the cards is like painting for me, except my "brush strokes" are on a digital canvas," says Atkins, whose painterly sensibilities have blended with his expertise in digital media during his 25-year career as a graphic effects artist for major films and television.

Friends since high school, both Knaub and Atkins have long shared a love of the outdoors and a passion to protect it. That’s why Three Leaf Cards donates 10% of every $24 membership to their Nonprofit Partners, as the member chooses. Carefully selected for their financial responsibility and real work toward restoring the environment and promoting social justice, those Nonprofit Partners (including Co-op America, the Conservation Fund, and the Mountain Institute and Sustainable Conservation) represent the values on which Three Leaf Cards was founded.

"It’s important to us that the more successful Three Leaf Cards becomes, the more positive impact we’ll have in the world," Knaub says. "That’s why we call it a ‘triple-bottom-line’ business.. “We measure our success by how much we improve life for people and the planet not just on financial performance"

Offering a quality product is also paramount to Three Leaf Cards, especially convenient features that make the cards fun and easy to send. Busy people can feel good about sending these video-based cards—and save time and resources in the process. Features include a:

  • Scheduling Calendar. Set cards to be sent for the whole year in just minutes.

  • Reminder Calendar. Never forget an important date again with email reminders.

  • Address Book. Access contacts quickly and conveniently.

  • Favorites. Choose or customize cards when you have time and send them when you want.

    For anyone who cares about the environment, sending online greetings makes sense. For example, the Greeting Card Association estimates that 7 billion paper cards are sent in the United States alone each year. That means about 2.87 million trees could be saved every year by sending online cards instead. And with almost 100 cards to choose from covering many occasions, Three Leaf Cards makes a perfect choice for those who want to send online greetings but never had the right option—until now.
