Greeting Cards

Just when Mufti Munib ur Rehman announces the appearance of moon, our cell phones start buzzing with Ramadan and Eid greetings. Similarly, greeting cards also become a trending topic before, during and after Ramadan. People are always wondering about an appropriate way to wish their loved ones. Google hasn’t ignored this necessity too and has launched “Qalam”, to help create personalized messages to share in Ramadan.

Google has also collaborated with nine calligraphy artists from around the globe to create more than 35 different Ramadan and Eid greeting styles. With the help of Qalam, we can now customize and share our 3D cards with our family and friends.
