Having noticed how lacklustre card messages can be (No offence distant relatives who still spell my name J.O.H.N.) these cards don’t even waste space for personal messages. From the front cover to the inside left, inside right, and the back; each page of the card shows imagery suggestive of a syllable from the desired message. For example: 'Happy Christmas' becomes Hat-Pea-Chris-Moss; 'Congratulations' becomes Kong-Rat-Yule-Asians; 'Thinking of you' becomes Thin-King-Off-You etc.

These Phoneticards therefore function as a cryptic puzzle that prolongs a card’s life from 10 seconds to at least a few minutes of curiosity.
