Minneapolis, MN (PRWEB) February 5, 2008
Today, AP Designs unveiled the first of many sets of political collectible trading cards on its website, with the intent of further involving all ages and backgrounds of citizens in the political process. In addition to the current candidate cards available, there are plans to release trading cards for Members of Congress, U.S. Senators, Governors, and the Supreme Court over the next few weeks.
Pocket Politicians were designed and put to market by University of Minnesota Sophomore Andy Post in his spare time. “I never thought this random idea would become such a huge success,” said Post.
Post thought of the idea in response to apathy and lack of current events knowledge he noticed on his college campus. The cards are also intended to educate younger generations through schools and libraries, but can easily be used by older citizens as well, he said.
Pocket Politicians feature a photo of the candidate, biographical information such as age, hometown, religion, and college education. Additionally, recent election information, political background, and contact information are found on the cards.
PocketPoliticians.com features a “create your own” section for the use of any candidates for office that want the advantage of portable and inexpensive advertisements for themselves at parades, campaign events, or mailings. From student body president to President of the United States, the custom card function is easy and flexible to meet the needs of customers, said Post.
Customers have the option of purchasing packs of cards or individual ones, with quantity discounts available. The founders also have plans to expand internationally, including packs for Prime Ministers/Presidents of other nations, a pack for the United Nations, and even military leaders.
“I think these things are great, they make it easy to learn more about politicians and our leaders, especially when the product is in the palm of your hand,” said University of Wisconsin-Madison student T.J. Madsen.
For additional information on political trading cards (or for a sample), contact Andy Post or visit http://www.PocketPoliticians.com. Products are frequently changing and keeping up with elections and appointments to local, state, and federal office.
