Send a postcard from your phone, anywhere in the world, for just £1.99

Now yes, I know that there’s probably a few services out there that’ll do this, but I stumbled upon this particular one today and thought it was worth bringing to your attention. It’s a simple (and pretty cheap) idea. It costs nothing for the initial download and is available for Android and iPhone.

It’s perhaps best suited to those who love to received traditional mail / post through the letterbox. Remember in the old days, when we used to go on holiday and buy a postcard, then stick some stamps on it and send it to our parents or a grandparent? You’d head into a local gift shop, buy a postcard with a photo of the beach or the complex you were staying, then you’d write a message and send it off. It would probably arrive after you’d returned but it was a nice little memento, and it was a way of saying, “We’re thinking of you” which is much better than a simple text.

So, with the MyPostcard postcard app you can do it the more modern way. Include a photo or photos of yourself and your friends / family, then add your own personal greeting on the back. Prices start from just £1.99 and the company will ship anywhere in the world.

It’s not just for postcards either – you can send personal birthday cards, thank-you cards, wedding, valentine or Christmas cards too. Greeting / folded cards cost £2.99.

It’s had stacks of downloads and over 4,000 5-star ratings so it’s got to be good.
