I think hallmark makes a pre maid one now that does that. You could buy an audio recording model from radio shack, it runs on 2 AA's though, not the small coin cell batteries like those inside cards.

Thanks for your comments. I checked with Hallmark and they do not sell them to the public, at least that's what they told me. You mention that I could buy a audio recording model at Radio Shack.?? Can you be more specific on what I need to accomplish this. Thanks

Sure,
Here is a link. It runs off of a 9 volt battery but if you buy 3 CR2032 3V Lithium Batteries and put them in series it might work.

Two AA's total 3V; therefore, a 3V coin cell would power the device, albeit with a shorter battery life. Of course, you could then wire two or more coin cells in parallel to increase run time.

oh yeah. Now that I look at it actually runs on a 9 volt battery.Maybe 3 coin cell in series. Nice catch on my error.

. I'd just buy a card that allows one to record a msg and peel the paper off.
