When the holiday season or important moment comes, there also comes the confusion to find the proper and interactive greeting cards for your loved ones.

Of course, you don't want to make them dull. These kinds of greeting cards need to be prepared, so they will leave a special spot on their hearts. Well, luckily, you can upscale your usual greeting cards with AR experiences!

In this article, we will break down the steps to create stunning greeting cards with AR experiences, using the Assemblr Studio Web. Wanna know how? Check them out!

How to Create AR Greeting Cards

1. Prepare your greeting card's design

Before we insert the AR experiences, make sure that you already have the design for your greeting card.

If you're a designer and have created one, that's awesome. But if you don't have the time to make it, you can simply search for "greeting card designs" on the internet. You'll be able to find tons of them!

Got your picks? Don't forget to download them in the form of .jpeg files!

2. Print your greeting card

If you've downloaded the greeting card, make sure to print it. To make it even better, you need to choose a great paper quality. Avoid using plain A4 paper; we recommend you use a matte card stock.

3. Create the AR creations

Open Assemblr Studio Web, and create your own AR creation. For the tutorials, you can simply visit our Learning Resources page!

Feel free to use any objects and features available, but make sure they're related to your theme. When you can't find the 3D objects that you want, you can always import custom 3D objects from the marketplace for your creation.

Currently, you can only import .fbx files, but soon enough, you'll also be able to import the objects in the form of other files!

4. Upload the custom marker (this is important!)

On the bottom left of your screen, click on the highlighted button.

Then, you can upload your greeting card design here.

You can choose to make it visible or not on the project, simply by clicking the eye button.

Just in case you still haven't known it yet, the custom marker will allow you to trigger the AR creation you have created, simply by scanning the greeting card using the smartphone.

Notes: Custom markers are available to purchase by slots or on an all-in-one package with the subscription plans. Feel free to choose up to your liking!

5. Publish your creation!

If you're all satisfied with your creation, click Publish.

Here, you will need to fill in some details about your project; like your project title & description as well as the cover image of your creation.

You will also be required to set the visibility of your project and choose the category of your creation. Once you're done, click Publish!

Time to send the card!

And that's it! All you have to do now is to send your greeting card to your loved ones along with some hampers or gifts. Also, don't forget to leave them a message that the greeting card is scannable.

Ask them to download the Assemblr app, choose the Scan menu, search the marker owner's username (in this case, your username), and there goes the AR creation appearing on top of the card! Happy assembling!
