All throughout history, man has been trying to find the perfect way to send a message. Cavemen wrote on the walls of their homes, lords and ladies communicated through falcons, and the Pony Express raced heartfelt epistles to distant loved ones. Whether the messages were sealed with wax or rolled up in a bottle, it was always the hope of the sender that they would have a huge impact on the one they were intended to impress.
Today we live in a world of fast moving societies and rapidly changing technology. No one would ever wait around for a carrier pigeon or a runner to deliver a message. Constantly checked emails, instant messaging, and texting are the chosen way of communication. And no one is complaining, because it’s fast, easy and suits today’s lifestyle perfectly. A more personal touch type of message is easily passed up for the convenience and accessibility of electronic messages.
Well, what would you think about the opportunity to combine today’s love of whiz bang technology with the romance and sentiment of one of Mother Nature’s most beautiful creations, the flower? In this way one could give their messages the desired classic and sentimental feel, and still be able to compete with today’s futuristic demands.
A company by the name of Speaking Roses in Salt Lake City, Utah has patented the process to print on live, fresh flowers, giving new meaning to the old saying, “Say it with Flowers”. This means that heartfelt messages, handwritten notes, and company logos can be printed on the petals of flowers to make the perfect love note, invitation, or advertisement. And as if that were not enough, they’ve raised the bar in message sending by enabling their customers to create video messages that can be embedded into the petal of a rose or other flower. This means that the romantic and meaningful gift of a flower can enable the recipient to view a personalized video message simply by holding the flower in front of a webcam or smartphone.
In today’s era of personalization, this gives advertisers and Romeos alike the opportunity to send a message that will be unique and noteworthy. Those who receive a video message on a flower will be very unlikely to forget its significance. Advertisers will find it easier to get the attention of their market when their calling card is a flower that speaks and activates a video.
