Whether consumers are looking for heartwarming expressions, out-of-the-box designs or humorous jokes, the American Greetings Corporation (NYSE: AM) card aisle features it all.

Father's Day is the perfect time to show dad appreciation for all his dedication and accomplishments. It's not every day families have the chance to focus on the special man in their life and with its variety of greeting card offerings, American Greetings provides a one-stop shop for family members to share their feelings. Heartfelt sentiments may resonate for some men, while others appreciate playful humor, therefore, this Father's Day collection showcases something for everyone.

For those looking to share an innovative take on the holiday, American Greetings has the best variety of Father's Day cards available. This year everything from entertaining animations to interactive technology helps to add playfulness and a wow factor to the greetings, including Party Starters™. Let the fun begin and get your party started with Party Starters! Each card in this laugh-out-loud collection features a small googly-eyed icon peeking out from inside the card. Opening the card causes the googly-eyed object to spring to life and deliver a funny original song. With music, motion, hilarious copy, and bold, bright illustration - Party Starters is a great way to jumpstart your next big day.

Also for Father's Day, AmericanGreetings.com launches the most anticipated product this season, video ecards. These hysterical, new interactive digital ecards feature unexpected characters who serenade recipients on their special occasions. The ecards' highly technical functionality allows consumers to choose from hundreds of personalization options—ensuring every video ecard created matches its recipient's personality. The "Cheer for Father's Day" card, featuring cheerleaders honoring dad on his special day, is available at www.americangreetings.com

The macho minds at justWink have added Father's Day messages as well—just as handsome as the dads themselves, to their digital greeting card collection. This year's digital cards celebrate the day of the dad in a ruggedly awesome way filled with manly messages of compassion. Whether he's mowing the lawn in embarrassingly uber-tight shorts or yelling to turn off the lights, dad always shows his love in his own special way. Now it's time to return the favor. With 14 different bold and sassy new cards, a justWink greeting will match dad's personality and make this Father's Day one to remember.
