What is Hack Day?
At American Greetings we create products that facilitate the expression of happiness, laughter, and love. Hack Day is your opportunity to find new and creative ways to use technology to help our customers express these emotions to one another by developing something fun and innovative using both old and new technologies.

Make Something in One Day
Hack Day is about creating cool stuff in 24 hours and then unveiling your creation in a 5 minute presentation.
Everyone Can Participate
You don't have to be a developer. A hack can be a concept, proposal, or a fully functional prototype. It's about creativity and innovation.
Failure IS an Option
Hack Day is about new and ambitious ideas that may often results in less-than-optimal endings.
