Got my invite a few days ago, I love the simplicity and the experience of the application. It's super easy to use and to figure out how it works and what to do next. Try asking @n33co on Twitter for invites.

Hey folks! Carrd is a project I've been building off and on since last summer. It's my first "major" solo project since HTML5 UP / Pixelarity, and definitely the most complex thing I've ever attempted to build on my own (more on that another time), so I'm super excited to finally share it with the world (well, the world outside my Twitter following at least :) The concept behind Carrd is pretty straightforward: it's a free service for building and hosting simple, responsive, one-page sites for ... basically whatever, be it a personal "business card" style site or a "coming soon" page with a Mailchimp signup form to capture emails. It's fast, super simple to use, and 100% free, though bonus features (like forms and custom domain support) are available with the (entirely optional) $19/year Pro plan. A few quick examples I whipped up: http://jane.carrd.co/ http://markanderson.carrd.co/ http://anotherjane.carrd.co/ And a couple using forms if you're into that sort of thing: http://contact-form-demo.carrd.co/ http://signup-form-demo.carrd.co/ Now I know there are *tons* of other products in this space already (including some really great ones featured right here on Product Hunt), but having been in its orbit for some time I think that's simply a function of how big the space is (which totally makes sense; everyone's needs are a little different). So, my goal with Carrd was to create a product that really focused on simplicity and ease of use while still being capable of building attractive/functional sites. Based on early feedback I think I've come pretty close to that goal, but as I'm sure there's plenty of room for improvement (as indicated by its "kinda-sorta-beta" state) please let me know what you think :)

For anyone reading this now: a *ton* of cool stuff has been added to Carrd since it debuted on PH (much of it in response to feedback I got from here :) If you're curious, check my Twitter feed (@n33co).

@proki_x @n33co with a pro plan you can add a gif (up to 5Mo) http://pdf.carrd.co
Paul de Fombelle
@proki_x @n33co actually I still miss a feature to credit the author of the gif
Alessio Santo
@ajlkn just be careful that someone does not use your service for phishing... Nowadays you have to think about it for almost anything that is public content creation.
Josefin Ittichai
@n33co @proki_x Wondering the same thing- would be awesome to add a video covering the full background space (same layout size as a video)
Tek
@ajlkn Have tried logging in to convert to pro account, get error : form timeout. No delay from my side in entering my email id or password. What could be the reason ??
Tek
@ajlkn Status update ? Site not working as reported many days back..now private messages are not responded for many days...response would be appreciated.

It is easy to use and understand how it works. I like it
aj

@cruzheres Thanks!
Herman Schutte
Nice and straight forward. How about adding an option to add your Product Hunt profile to the list of social icons?
aj
Maker
@hermanschutte Good idea! Added to my to-do list :)
Nick Coates
Awesome job @n33co! Whilst some say it could be a crowded marketplace for services like Carrd, you've definitely made it stand out by making it clean & simple 👌
aj
Maker
@gadgick Thanks dude!
Aram Shahinyan
So basically it feels like an advanced alternative to about.me. I do love the simplicity, design and overall UX. Everything is precisely clear and simple. I do believe there is still much room for improvement. Great job, keepit up!
aj
Maker
@aramiggs Yep, it's kind of a half-step between that and more hardcore site builders, but I think it's a sweet spot for a lot of folks. Anyhow, let me know if you have any suggestions :)
Joe Goldstein
@aramiggs It definitely reminds me of about.me, but functionally it's probably closest to Tackk https://tackk.com/
Mike Schetkin
Relly good design. It takes me 5 minutes to create professional view webcard. Like you project. Good luck in your promotion!

Maker
@mikepetersss Thanks!
Marko Vuletic
I love the fact that you don't even have to register/login to start playing around!
aj
Maker
@markoxvee Glad someone pointed this out! So I actually planned this waaaaaaaaaay early in the process because I *hate* having to sign up just to try something I might not even like. Plus, I figured just turning people loose on the site w/o needing to sign up beats the hell out of making an elaborate demo video to show it off.
Nithin Kumar
Really Good design

@nithinkumar_g Thx!
Adi Goldstein
Thats awesome ! Reminds me of what About.me was when they started.. Thanks for sharing

@adigold1 Thank you!
Sebastian Rumberg
It even supports emoji's and animations. I really like it :) http://2080.carrd.co Would be great if I could remove the underline from URLs.
aj
Maker
@rumberg Hmm yeah, link styling is definitely something I need to add!
Roman
Reminds me of About.me a lot.

@romanzadyrako Yup, check out my reply to @aramiggs
Irfan Arif
Hi! I love the ability to be able to control kerning and spacing! And the interface is really easy to use. However, it seems that Twitter and Linkedin icons won't show up. Is this a server side issue? or perhaps I should flush my browser's cache?
aj
Maker
@vahen Hmm, running adblock? Has a habit of blocking anything containing a known brand name (like twitter).
Irfan Arif
@n33co lol ah that's probably it
aj
Maker
@vahen Okay yeah, I think the FontAwesome folks were running into this as well. Might implement a workaround.
clavy celestine
fun to play with this carrd, l Like it because its simple and fast to create a Landing page. How do l edit a published page, if l discover there is an error on the page and do l have to be a subscriber before l can have the Login detail?
aj
Maker
@kleaklass When you go to publish it'll actually ask you for an email/password combo so it can set up an account for you when it's done. No need to subscribe to anything though.

Wow, this looks amazing! Great job.

@danielmeng07 Thanks!
