What will they look like?
Choose your favorite designs from our library—all of which are automatically branded with your logo. Your clients personalize their gift by choosing the perfect design for the occasion along with the recipient's and sender's names and any message. If you'd like to take it further, you can even create custom designs. It's up to you!
How does it work?
We create an Instant Gift Certificates page just for you, that looks just like your website. We'll then help you add your new Instant Gift Certificate page to your website and to Facebook. The same page automatically re-sizes perfectly for mobile devices.
You can easily change your services and packages that are available for Instant Gift Certificates. And, you can create specials that apply just for a specific time period.
Gift givers simply choose a gift certificate design, preview it, and then, after providing credit card information, instantly print or email it.
