CircleIt®, a futuristic technology that gives users the ability to send cards, media and gifts to loved ones across time, announced today it has surpassed 1 million downloads. While less than a year old, CircleIt is seeing a big surge in global demand. Since January 1, 2021, we have nearly tripled our user base with over 650,000 downloads in 167 countries.

Art Shaikh, CircleIt Founder,  shares “today is truly a day for celebration; the technology that was inspired by my father’s gift of handmade cards left behind after his passing is now in the hands of families around the world.” Shaikh’s father passed away in 2012 and left letters, cards and gifts for him to deliver to family members on future holidays and occasions. It’s this unique sentiment that inspired Shaikh to launch CircleIt.

Create Cards with CircleIt

“With CircleIt, you can send cards to any future date and time. For example, I can schedule a card full of wisdom and well wishes to my 4-year-old niece for her future wedding day – possibly decades from now. All I have to do is select the occasion, even if I don’t know the actual date, and our smart technology will take care of the rest.”

This modern solution to legacy preservation has been well-received around the world. “Families have been finding their own ways of storing memories and preserving their heritage for generations,” says Shaikh, “I’ve had people contact me – saying how their family has an old chest of pictures, recipes, books, memorabilia and documents that go back years. And now they can ensure their family history continues to live on [digitally] for generations.” Shaikh adds “and with the addition of our future gifting functionality, you can order flowers and gifts to be delivered to your loved ones from beyond the grave.” From a mother with cancer crafting messages containing life-long advice to her young children to a grandfather with early onset Alzheimer’s scheduling messages and gifts to be delivered years down the road – the possibilities are endless.
