Tech-Talk Greeting Cards

Matt Raw's Codecards Collection is for Computer Jargon Junkies

— May 24, 2011 — Pop Culture
Sometimes it seems like the opposite sex speaks in code -- well now they really are with these encoded greeting cards!

Matt Raw's Codecards collection is ideal for sentimental geeks and emotional gamers. These encoded cards are more aesthetically empty than popular big-league cards, but they really say so much more. These nerdtastic paper greetings are covered in images and heartfelt messages, or rather, coded images and messages. These cards are comprised of computer code language instead of visual images, making it even more special since the recipient has to decipher it. Make sure the person receiving this codified card understands computer code -- code-oblivious card readers may be utterly confused.

Matt Raw's Codecards collection will allow geeks to gush with sentiment.
