Charles and Alex, co-founders of SWAQ (Sealed with a QR code) are high school buddies and entrepreneurs. Originally starting a custom label company for alcohol, the pair quickly realized the power of a personal message to bring joy to any gifting experience by making it memorable, shareable and actionable.


SWAQ is on a mission to bridge the gap between physical gifts and the self-expression of digital messaging. The founders are trying to solve the emotional disconnect between gift givers and recipients across geographical distances in the age of eCommerce and to help small and large businesses struggling to expand their customer base using in the highly competitive era of social media.


We built a web-based app that replaces traditional gift notes with fun, creative and familiar, social media style video messages, attached to physical gifts using QR codes. The SWAQ platform has launched to provide customers with meaningful connections and merchant partners with the digital impressions, data, and tools to convert gift recipients into customers. The tech is built into the QR code so no software integration nor download is required. We helped the team develop a Shopify app for merchants while also developing a robust set of API endpoints for custom integrations.
