Ever since the invention of modern technology – iPhones, emails, texts and the internet – it seems that postcards and the written word have somewhat died a bit of a death. However, it appears many companies are starting to realise that the memories that we do have are going to get lost in the depths of the worldwide web if we don’t do something about it.
Postsnap is a free to download IOS app which lets you create beautiful design-led postcards, announcement cards, thank-you notes and greetings cards which are sent straight to your friends and family, using your photos straight from your iPhone or iPad. They will receive and enjoy a physical copy of your personalised card, it’s that simple.
The thing I love about this is that you are sharing YOUR memories with your loved ones. A photo of a landmark, the family on the bench, a meal you have enjoyed…whatever it might be.
A shop-bought card can be time consuming. You have to purchase it, remember to write it and then buy a stamp and then find a postbox! Phew! But, with Postsnap all you need to do is:
- Choose a product – whether it be a postcard, announcement or greeting card
- Select a photo – either from your iPhone or iPad library or from Facebook or Instagram
- Customise – choose either a single photo or multiples to create a collage with a border and some photo effects
The end results are then sent on to your family and friends via the Postsnap app. Choosing any one of the following:
Postsnap postcards are printed both sides on thick, high-quality card, with a soft touch laminate to increase resilience to damage in the post. They are landscape format, and available in a choice of standard A6 size (148mm x 105mm) or large A5 size (210mm x 148mm). Just like traditional postcards, the postal address and postage appear on the right hand side of the reverse.
Postsnap announcement cards are landscape format, and available in a choice of standard A6 size (148mm x 105mm) or large A5 size (210mm x 148mm). They are printed both sides on thick, high-quality card with a velvet-like finish, and posted in premium quality envelopes.
Postsnap greeting cards are A6 (finished size 148mm x 105mm), and four pages, in landscape format. They are printed throughout on thick, high-quality stock with a velvet-like finish and posted in premium quality envelopes.
Prices start at just 70 pence including UK postage for the Announcement cards.
Postsnap is a great service that mixes the old with the new. I am all for that 🙂
