Company Summary

Tapgreet offers a solution that cuts the space necessary to sell physical greeting cards by 75%. While our technology and provisional patent open up a lot of avenues to build a brand, our initial market centers around the placement of self-service greeting card kiosks in high traffic areas that lack space (i.e. coffeehouses like Starbucks). We launched in late August with the placement of three kiosks in the Bay Area.
