I’ve been helping with building a web service for the last few months. This site, Stor-E-Cards is a unique take on the traditional greeting card, as each card has the link to a story online inside. I think it’s pretty neat and they are definitely nicer than E-Cards because due the product being a real physical card. In a way, it bridges the physical and digital worlds.


The site was orignally built with PHP & MySQL, but the current version uses Ruby on Rails & PostgreSQL. It’s only going to get better as we add more new cards and features.

A lot of the stories are pretty cool and it is worth having a look at. Cards are bought from the site and they’re currently $7.99 NZD with free worldwide shipping.
