WARRINGTON, England, April 28, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --
On April 29th 2014 CRAFTSUPRINT.COM launched Crafty Bob's FREE Card Creator in a bold attempt to take a market share in the fashionable Personalised Printed Cards market. The market is currently dominated by two big players, Moonpig and Funky Pigeon, however craftsuprint.com hopes that the Crafty Bob Card Creator's unique selling points will help them gain a lead on their rivals.
Rob Jackson, CEO at craftsuprint.com explains:
"The main advantage we have over Moonpig and Funky Pigeon is that our service is quicker and completely FREE. Unlike our competitors we email the finished personalised card to our customers as a downloadable file ready for them to print on any inkjet printer. This unique selling point means that our customers get their printable cards in seconds and there is no chance that their specially designed cards will get lost in the post or delayed by postal strikes.
If you need a quick card then the Crafty Bob Card Creator is the perfect solution. How many times have you nipped out in the rain to buy a greetings card from the local shop and paid over the odds? How many times have you wished there was an easy way to make the kids' Birthday Invitations or Thank You cards? Printing your own greetings cards is the future, not only because the service is FREE but because the delivery is instant and can be applied globally.
Advancements in home printers mean that you can now create your own quality cards at a fraction of the price of what you can get them on the high street. The Crafty Bob Card Creator is going to change the Greetings Card Industry forever: everybody knows that digital is the way forward and craftsuprint.com has come up with a concept that is just too good to fail. Couple this with our unique artist affiliate commission, which means that there will soon be 1000's and not 100's of FREE personalised cards to choose from.
The response to our new initiative has been overwhelming and our new Crafty Bob Facebook App is currently trending as word spreads about this fantastic new facility.
In the future we can see a Crafty Bob Card Creator in every supermarket, offering customers the facility to make their own instant personalised cards cheaply and quickly as they bluetooth photos from their mobile phones in store."
The Crafty Bob Card creator was recently independently reviewed in Simply Homemade Magazine issue 42, published by Practical Publishing and this is what they had to say:

WebRTC defines no default signaling protocol, causing fragmentation between WebRTC silos. SIP and XMPP provide possibilities, but come with considerable complexity and are not designed for use in a web environment. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Matthew Hodgson, technical co-founder of the Matrix.org, discussed how Matrix is a new non-profit Open Source Project that defines both a new HTTP-based standard for VoIP & IM signaling and provides reference implementations.

How do APIs and IoT relate? The answer is not as simple as merely adding an API on top of a dumb device, but rather about understanding the architectural patterns for implementing an IoT fabric. There are typically two or three trends: Exposing the device to a management framework Exposing that management framework to a business centric logic Exposing that business layer and data to end users. This last trend is the IoT stack, which involves a new shift in the separation of what stuff happe...

Scott Jenson leads a project called The Physical Web within the Chrome team at Google. Project members are working to take the scalability and openness of the web and use it to talk to the exponentially exploding range of smart devices. Nearly every company today working on the IoT comes up with the same basic solution: use my server and you'll be fine. But if we really believe there will be trillions of these devices, that just can't scale. We need a system that is open a scalable and by using ...

What do a firewall and a fortress have in common? They are no longer strong enough to protect the valuables housed inside. Like the walls of an old fortress, the cracks in the firewall are allowing the bad guys to slip in - unannounced and unnoticed. By the time these thieves get in, the damage is already done and the network is already compromised. Intellectual property is easily slipped out the back door leaving no trace of forced entry. If we want to reign in on these cybercriminals, it's hig...
