e-Gift Cards: Celebrate the Holidays From a Distance
Listen, we understand that in this unpredictable world we currently live in, celebrating the holidays is more than a little stressful. Let’s make gift-giving a little easier. Here’s the scoop on what e-gift cards are, how to purchase, print, or email them, and how to use them.
What are e-Gift Cards?
The short answer – they are digital gift cards.
How do they work?
E-Gift Cards have the same function as our physical gift cards. They have a specific 16-digit code and can be redeemed in any Java House or Heirloom Salad Co.
You simply show the barista your e-gift card that is saved in your email or a printed out version. The barista then enters in the 16-digit code, and the amount is deducted from your card.
How to Purchase & Print e-Gift Cards
Visit our website. Go to the “Shop” button, and click on “Gift Cards”
“e-Gift Card” will be the first entry on the list.
Choose your e-gift card design. Pick your gift amount – $5.00, $10.00, $20.00, $50.00 or Custom.
Note: Want to email your e-gift card? Skip to Stage 5. Want to print your e-gift card? Continue to Stage 3.
Printing an e-gift card allows you to place the e-card into a Birthday Card, Holiday Card, or even just keep it in your wallet.

How to Email e-Gift Cards
Emailing an e-gift card allows you send it instantly OR schedule a date and time for it to be sent.
During the checkout process, enter the recipient’s email in the “Recipient Name/Email” section. Continue to fill in the following required information. Lastly choose if you want the card to send instantly or on a future date. The recipient will then receive the email shown in Stage 4.
