BURLINGAME, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 11/20/08 -- HDgreetings, the maker of high-quality personalized e-cards, announced today that the company is teaming with Amazon.com to offer a new and unique digital gift this holiday season: an Amazon.com Gift Card and high-quality personalized e-card. With the purchase of an Amazon.com Gift Card from www.hdgreetings.com/amazon, customers can personalize and send a free e-card with photos, text and music added to high-end 3D animation, making themselves or loved ones the star of the show! Recipients can view the e-cards on an iPhone or computer.
"While an Amazon.com Gift Card offers customers the Earth's Biggest Selection, an HDgreetings e-card provides the personal touch to make it even more special," says Michal Geller, director of Gift Cards at Amazon.com. "We are excited that HDgreetings e-cards can now be paired with Amazon.com Gift Cards; the combination offers customers a personalized gift that is fun to make and easy to give."
"This holiday season people don't want to waste money giving gifts that loved ones don't want or need. This year, a practical gift is a thoughtful gift," says HDgreetings CEO and co-founder Jennifer Sharp. "We help make this online purchase personal by allowing customers to send their gift card with a uniquely customized e-card!"
HDgreetings has also become a reseller of Amazon.com Gift Cards and gives users at www.hdgreetings.com the option to pay using Amazon.com's Payment Services. At www.hdgreetings.com, users can now easily send Amazon Gift Cards with any of the company's high quality e-cards, and then check out using their trusted Amazon.com account.

HDgreetings believes an increasing number of people will send e-cards as their holiday cards this year. CEO Jennifer Sharp says, "We see our personalized e-cards as an exciting alternative to paper greeting cards. Tough economic times have made a personalized e-card a great choice for the annual family photo card or holiday business greeting card."
