Last year, 96,1 million SMS messages were sent on New Year’s Eve. And 50% of Belgians have admitted to frequently sending a random, impersonal SMS to their contact list. That’s why Boondoggle and bpost thought of a temporary new product: the SMS card. An SMS that is sent as a real card, with your personal wishes printed on it. An original alternative to the routine SMS. And above all, the ideal way to position bpost in the digital world.
For the design, Boondoggle and bpost were inspired by classic SMS lingo, with an end-of-year twist. Six cards were made, each with a unique emoticon on the back. Examples include the SMS angel, the SMS reindeer and the SMS fire arrow.
How do you send an SMS card?
Simply by sending an SMS to 3031 with the word ‘kaartje’ and following the instructions. Within 3 working days after sending the SMS, the SMS card will land in the recipient’s mailbox. Sending an SMS card costs 1,20 €. As easy as an SMS, but far more original. The campaign runs from December 15 until January 7.
