New to the market is an e-commerce business which specialises in retailing customisable greeting and special occasion cards.
The website has never been launched or begun trading but has undergone significant development by the vendor since its inception in 2000. It has an outstanding domain name, www.Expresscards.co.uk, and a 20-year history which will help it to rank highly on search engines. The domain new.Expresscards.co.uk is a test site which is also available to view.
Similar to funkypigeon.com and thortful.com, Express Cards allows customers to select their perfect card design and customise it to create a heartfelt or funny greeting card to send to a lucky recipient. On Express Cards, customers have complete control over the final design of their card, with additional functionalities on the site such as image overlay, sound cards and badges.
The website was developed in classic ASP and is on shared hosting (123-Reg), with multiple versions of the site available. The backend server programs were written in Visual Basic (VB) with Access Database, featuring several programs for accepting orders (via email) and automatically formatting into printed cards, allowing manual printing of ordered cards (for any errors), and managing the database of card images.
This is a fantastic chance for an existing online retailer to acquire a highly sought-after domain and website which is ready for modernisation and simplification.
