At least two online companies are using innovative ideas to turn customer emails and photos into real-life postcards, delivered by U.S. Mail. Their websites tout such things as:
Snap, tap and send.
New technology delivered the old fashioned way.
Keep Grandma in the loop. Send a post card to share photos with relatives who don't use Facebook.
Send a postcard to a service member in Afghanistan. Be a big hit at mail call with tangible photos.
Take a photo and send a post card of it in 30 seconds or less right from your smart phone.
Send travel photos home on your own post cards right from the sights you visit.
You can send postcards from your phone, your computer, or anywhere you have email.
The best of both worlds - using technology to enhance real mail.
