How do I send a PictAR?

There are a few ways you can send a PictAR. The simplest method of sending your AR Video Message to someone is to click on “Send A PictAR” in our menu. From there, just pick your recipient, include some information, upload your video message, and we will mail it out. We can send it on your behalf, or you can choose to send it to yourself to include with a gift, card, or letter you may already intend to send. Whatever works best! We have a webstore coming soon which will feature multi packs which will allow you to send the same message (or multiple messages!) to a few recipients.

Any tips for video uploads?

Why yes! For best results, try to keep your video under 30 seconds long. Also, PictARs display video in a square. For best results, shoot your video in Landscape Mode and stay in the middle of the frame. Square format Video also works great! Other than that…HAVE FUN WITH IT! Be creative. Your message is the star of the show, so make it memorable!

What can PictAR do for my business or brand?

PictAR adds depth to traditional digital brand strategies. Build special instructions directly into a product or its packaging. Include a video component with tangible marketing materials.
