032913 CLEVERBUGBecause of Facebook, I’ve never been more aware of my friends’ birthdays. And, there’s no denying that sending and getting birthday wishes on Facebook feels great. It’s simple and is almost always publicly appreciated…what’s not to love? At the same time, there are some friends who deserve a little more than an “HBD!” message on their timeline.

For those closer friends, you’ve gotta check out a new iOS app called Cleverbug. Using the Cleverbug app, you can create and send a high quality, physical greeting card through the mail (remember the mail?!) to arrive on their special day. All from your phone!

The process is easy:

First, download-the free Cleverbug app.

Once downloaded and you’re connected to Facebook, Cleverbug highlights friends with upcoming birthdays.

Select a friend and start the card creation process by choosing from lots of clever card templates. Trust me, there is something for everyone in there! You fully customize the card by using their Facebook images in the template and by adding copy of your choosing or creation.

Once finished, you enter their address (or have the card sent to you w/ an added blank envelope for you to send) and send it!

You can aslo choose to have your creation posted on their timeline on their birthday for double fun!

And, that’s it.

The cards cost $2.99 plus the cost of the stamp. That’s a great deal for a personalized, quality card stock greeting card WITHOUT a trip to the card aisle of the pharmacy!
