Mother’s Day Gift-Givers Can Now Print Messages for Mom on Live Flowers with Speaking Roses International

SALT LAKE CITY — It’s the Message That Counts; Emboss Mom’s Photo or Her Favorite Expression on Rose Petals

Speaking Roses International, Inc. (OTC:SRII), a company with patented technology for printing images and messages on flowers, today announced a new gift idea for mothers worldwide. Personalize a bouquet for Mom by embossing “Happy Mother’s Day” and other traditional phrases or sentimental images on the petals of live roses.

“Now we can literally say ‘Happy Mother’s Day’ with a rose,” said Blaine Harris, CEO of Speaking Roses International. “Whether you print a grandchild’s smiling face or a popular expression on the petals, Speaking Roses are the gift you can give this Mother’s Day that will be as unique and thoughtful as the recipient.”

“By combining greeting card and floral delivery traditions, Speaking Roses has created a novel gifting medium,” said Ted Phillips, director of marketing for Speaking Roses International. “Imagine Mom’s surprise when she finds her children’s glowing faces on the petals, along with a few poignant phrases – ‘We love the boo-boo kisser!’, ‘You’re our hero!’ or ‘Grilled-cheese goddess’.”

Speaking Roses have been used for high-profile occasions, including presidential events, Hollywood awards, celebrity birthdays and major sporting events. On May 8, it will be Mom’s turn to revel in the spotlight.

Speaking Roses can be purchased online at www.speakingroses.com, or by calling toll-free 1-866-400-ROSE.

Elvis or Snoopy fans are in luck, too. Speaking Roses exclusively offers roses adorned by “The King” and “The Red Baron” at www.elvis.com and www.snoopystore.com.
