Tyler Oakley, Lilly Singh Get Their Own Digital Greeting Cards From Someecards
YouTube recently decided to feature Tyler Oakley and Lilly Singh (aka IISuperwomanII) as the faces of its next round of promotional advertisements. But in addition to the typical formats of TV, print, and billboard ads, YouTube turned to an alternative, digital-native greeting card service with a Victorian and retro-American flair to help out in the promotion of Oakley and Singh. Yes, Oakley and Singh have their own Someecards. Founded in 2006, Someecards focuses on delivering humorous e-cards to a social and tech-savvy crowd. For the YouTube initiative, a Someecards rep said in an email to Tubefilter the e-card company worked closely with its in-house team to create cards that captured the spirit and character of both Oakley and Singh. For example, one digital greeting has a picture of the ever-polite and cheerful Oakley with his eyes closed and a cheesy grin on his face next to the words, “Sometimes I wish I could just close my eyes and make you agree with me.”

While we all love to see Elsas, Batmans and Antmans come to our door for a treat, what does it take to pull off a really memorable Halloween, from costumes to candy to home decorations to a giant jack o'lantern, not to mention the pizza. According to the National Retail Federation (NRF) the average person celebrating this year will spend $74.34 compared with $77.52 in 2014. But around here, Halloween is a really big deal, with a month's worth of celebrating that culminates on one big night.

Palestinian girl brings greeting cards back
Think greeting cards and new media, what comes to mind? E-cards.
Yet a young Palestinian entrepreneur has employed new media to somehow revive the dying art of greeting cards. Not only has she added a unique cultural touch, but also launched a family business with her two sisters in the process. Maysa Al Shaer, who is 26 and hails from Jenin in the north of Palestine, studied multimedia technology at the American University in Jenin. She begins by attributing her love for art and technology to her father. “Dad is an artist, a painter who draws in oils and writes Arabic calligraphy. He also works in advertising and I believe that my talent comes from him,” she says.
Al Shaer’s sisters and project partners are as talented as her. Tasnim is a graphic design student at Al Najah University in Nablus and Aseel is a recent graduate with a media major. “I choose the design ideas and phrases for the cards. Tasnim, my younger sister, designs them, and Aseel takes care of marketing and following up with customers and stores.”
