Valentine’s Day is Everything You Never Expected with justWink from American Greetings

Cleveland, OH (February 11, 2014) – If you’re expecting a “roses are red, violets are blue” poem scribbled on copy paper and the only beat-up flowers left at the grocery store because your lovebird is the last-minute type, justWink is going to make your amazingly amazing Valentine’s Day dreams come true!  The fresh and bold greeting card brand from American Greetings that lets you connect anywhere, anytime is using its signature smashup of sweet, sassy and funny cards paired with convenient digital capabilities to make your Valentine’s Day everything you never expected.
