For the first time, you can now design a personalised greeting card with accompanying original CD single and lyrics to celebrate any special occasion – from Christmas and Valentine’s Day to Birthdays and Weddings - or even send a unique relationship card to say “I love you” or “I’m sorry we’ve split up”.  Design online and the hard copy is delivered to the door for just £6.99, providing a unique, enduring keepsake that stands out from traditional greeting cards.  Or order a special creative subscribers pack online and get even craftier in the comfort of your own home.

“Imagine sending not the usual Christmas card but one with a CD and matching lyric inside, perhaps of ‘Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas’ by Judy Garland or ‘White Christmas’ by Frank Sinatra?” said 4tunecards co-founder and managing director, Sharon Foster. “With one of our CD and lyric gift cards you can introduce not only a personal touch but also convey the thought and the sentiment behind the gift. Best of all, you can mark each unforgettable event with a song that will play long after the card has been swept from the mantelpiece.”

Each 4tunecard is unique. The buyer chooses the card colour, the cover image and a song lyric that expresses their sentiments together with the matching CD.  The CDs feature original recordings from popular artists such as Marvyn Gaye, Gloria Gaynor, Frank Sinatra and Nat ‘King’ Cole.

“The greetings cards industry is enormous - in the UK, we spend about £600m a year on cards, and we buy and send around 5,000 cards every minute. Industry research shows that 83% of mothers keep their Mother's Day card when it includes a handwritten note. Even a small element of personalisation multiplies the value of the card to the recipient. allows users to design the ultimate personalised card for their friends or family, using popular music to create a greeting that’s fun, poignant or nostalgic – whatever they wish to convey,” Sharon Foster added.
