Press Room


At Encrypta Gifts, we believe stories and articles about the Encrypta cryptex have real “news” value for the following reasons:

  • A “cryptex” plays an important role in The Da Vinci Code, the best selling fiction book of all time with over 29 million copies in print.
  • A movie, based on The DaVinci Code, is in production – with Ron Howard as the director and Tom Hanks as the lead character (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0382625/)
  • Several books are planned for release within the next year with “code”-based themes
  • Gift giving has become a challenge for many (go to www.worldsperfectgift.com for more information)
