lifetokens are a new, fun way to send someone a personal message. As the sender, you compose a special message online. Then your recipient is sent a printed token that arrives the old fashioned way, via the U.S. Postal Service. The token lets the recipient know that a message is waiting and provides a unique six-digit code for unlocking the electronic greeting. The suspense builds until the recipient goes online to retrieve the message and find out who sent it.
Jamie Gladfelter conceived of lifetokens to combine the ease of online communication with the fun of receiving a physical, sentimental token. [lifetoken team on the right.] As a sender, you can choose the token design that best suits your message, whether it’s to say you’re missing someone special, or you’re sorry, or you’re proud of someone. The token designs complement the printed mailing materials, and the same look and feel greets the recipient online.
That attention to detail is one of the reasons two different people — Jules’ son Dane Pieri and prolific Grommet-spotter Julia Elmer — told us about lifetokens. When a traditional greeting card won’t cut it, and you don’t want a special message to get lost in the deluge of e-mail, give lifetokens a try. A little effort can go a long way toward making someone’s day.
