Personalized avatars invade the social stationery market at PosePrints.com

personalized invitation cards by PosePrints.com

Personalization is hot these days. Social stationery does not escape this trend. The mother and daughter team of PosePrints.com launched a new instant-order approach to customized stationery. In plain English, your printed stationery has a character that looks like you.

PosePrints.com wizard allows consumers to create a digital look-alike pose image or cute caricature of themselves or their friends from a wide range of pre-drawn facial features and accessories.  This is the same principle as when you design your Mii but with a nicer look. I tried the interface on PosePrints.com and it is easy to do.

If you are not familiar with the concept of avatar and Mii, you can read on wikipedia

A Mii (IPA: [mi]) is a digital avatar created by Nintendo for the Wii’s Mii Channel. Miis are customizable and allow the user to capture a likeness or caricature, or capture the personality of themselves and others.

A sweet deal for my readers

Jennifer Harland of PosePoints.com contacted me yesterday to announce her new product. I got a nice deal for all At Home with Kim Vallee readers. Simply type the code KV5POSE into the comment field at the check-out process to receive an extra 5 cards per 25-card order.  A $10 value! :)

PosePrints.com has developed a nice concept in social stationery, invitations and announcements. Design options will be continually updated to include new elements, models and seasonal styles. These are a little subset of the caricatures you can create right now.

More design options starting next week

In fact, if you have funky short hair like me, Jennifer told me that by next week the customization wizard will offer more short hairstyles for females. It made me realized that my mother had beautiful short hair all her life. So maybe that is why I like having short hair; this and the fact that it suits my face better.

The order takes three to five days to be custom-made. Your order is shipped directly from the printer to the customer. PosePrints.com only fulfills shipping in the United States for the moment. Have fun customizing you next invite card to your image.
