CLEVELAND, Nov. 15, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — It’s the most wonderful time of the year, and the joy of the season will once again fill the halls of the historic Grand Central Terminal in New York City as the 2022 Grand Central Terminal Holiday Fair returns after a two-year hiatus. Creatacard™ from AmericanGreetings.com is proud to be one of the presenting sponsors for the first time.

“As we kick off the holiday gift-giving and card-sending season, there seemed like no better place to launch our newest line of digital greetings than in the hustle and bustle of the Big Apple,” said Rob Matousek, Executive Director, Direct to Consumer Business at American Greetings, a global leader in the Celebrations marketplace. “And to bring even more cheer to the event, we’re offering free virtual greeting cards from our new Creatacard™ line to all fair attendees.”

As guests ascend from the Main Concourse into the Holiday Fair located in Vanderbilt Hall, they’ll be greeted by four larger-than-life greeting card images—each part of the new Creatacard line—for potential photo opportunities. And as a special gift from AmericanGreetings.com, they can scan a variety of QR codes, linking to 10 different free virtual greeting cards to share with their loved ones.

Creatacard from AmericanGreetings.com is an easy-to-create custom virtual greeting card that replicates the most-loved features of paper cards — but without the hassle of printing, addressing and postage. In a few simple steps, you can create, personalize (with names, messages and photos), and even sign your favorite digital cards. Then, send in an email, text, messaging app or as a social post. You can even include a gift card. Plus, if needed, you can print your card from home.

In addition to Creatacard virtual greetings, for one price, American Greetings digital subscribers have the ability to send an unlimited number of all American Greetings and Blue Mountain ecards, including SmashUps video greetings, Pics & Wishes and more. American Greetings digital subscriptions are available at $6.99 per month, $29.99 per year or $39.99 for two years.

“No matter if you celebrate Hanukkah, Kwanzaa, Christmas or just want to send season’s greetings, there is a Creatacard to make every celebration special,” added Matousek. “And since 89% of Americans report that receiving holiday cards brings them joy… our virtual greetings will help spread happiness to loved ones near and far!”

The Holiday Fair runs Monday, November 14 through Saturday, December 24, and will operate Monday through Saturday, 10 am to 7 pm, Sundays, 11 am to 6 pm and Christmas Eve from 10 am to 6 pm. The Holiday Fair will be closed for Thanksgiving.
