Tukaiz WGN Relationship
It all started back in 1993 when the Defino family, owners of Tukaiz sent an original Christmas song called “Merry Christmas to the Family” to Spike O’Dell delivered on a CD. The song was written and recorded as a Christmas gift to the Defino parents. Back then, burning music to CD’s was just getting noticed and was hardly being done. Spike loved the song so much that he played it frequently during the holiday seasons. From then on, a great friendship and partnership between WGN and the Defino family was born. Tukaiz and WGN worked together on many projects throughout the years including the development of Spike O’Dell’s webpage back in 1995. Next, it was the WGN Radio main website in 1997 and again revised in 2006. Soon thereafter, Tukaiz was asked to write the theme songs for the Chicago Cubs played at the beginning of all games broadcast on the radio. From 1998 through 2006, Tukaiz delivered 4 different songs. They can be heard at tukaiz.com. Tukaiz has just recently produced and recorded the opening theme song for the Chicago Blackhawks games which are broadcast on WGN Radio. Tukaiz continues to support WGN in their marketing efforts with the production of the WGN Cookbooks, Cubs schedules and many other marketing materials that use print and the internet. Tukaiz and WGN Radio continue to remain good friends and have developed a trusted business relationship for the past 15 years. Both Tukaiz and WGN are proud to now bring our newest product of image personalized calendars to the consumer market.

Franklin Park, IL, February 8, 2010— Tukaiz, a leading provider of results-driven marketing communications services, has launched PixyMe™, an iPhone and iPod touch application that is the first of its kind using true-to-life image personalization technology to create and send a personalized postcard via email, text message, Facebook, or an actual printed postcard through the mail. PixyMe’s fast rise in popularity to the Top 100 Paid Social Networking Apps stems from the fact it is unlike any other postcard messaging application on the market today. PixyMe connects you with family, friends, or other social networks by artistically placing the recipient’s name into an image to appear as if it was photographed that way, such as the name spelled out across the horizon over a lake at sunset or written on the snowy windshield of a car. The power of PixyMe is its one-of-kind creative approach to picture personalization that is designed to elicit emotion and smiles
