RRD to Showcase Lighted Cards Powered by Printed Electronics at National Stationery Show


CHICAGO--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- R.R. Donnelley & Sons Company (RRD) (NYSE:RRD) (the “Company”), a leading provider of multichannel marketing and business solutions, announced today that it will showcase its line of lighted LED cards, powered by Printed Electronics, at the National Stationery Show, May 21-24 at the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center in New York, NY.

Through the use of lightweight, printed paper circuits, RRD integrates LEDs within a greeting card design to create an engaging experience without adding significant weight or bulk. The cards are thin and elegant, utilizing a simple push button to enable hundreds of activations, and they have a shelf life of more than one year.

“Even in today’s digital age, consumers are looking for one-of-a-kind and special ways to convey their personal messages,” said Brad Hull, Vice President, Printed Electronics. “Our customizable lighted circuits, along with our other functional offerings such as NFC engagement and augmented reality, provide engaging alternatives to existing cards in the marketplace, and customers will find value in how these cards help elevate messaging.”

Ronnie Sarkar, Senior Vice President, Digital Solution Group, added, “In addition to the innovate lighted circuitry that we can add to greetings cards, we can also support card retailers (both online and in-store) with our greeting card creative design services, point-of-sale merchandising and displays, as well as packaging, distribution and fulfillment. We can add lights to your own existing designs or you can take advantage of our creative team to create truly differentiated products.”
