The thrill of receiving a postcard in the mail never gets old, but being able to fix one up all nice and snazzy for a friend or family member is even more thrilling (I love imagining the looks on their faces once it gets to them). Thankfully because we live in this digital era, postcards have come a long way. Did you know that you can take a photo on your iPhone and an app will whip it into a postcard for you? Or what about the online postcard that you can add tunes to? Check out what other postcard options there are in my slideshow!
Here's a novel idea. Take a photo, type up a message to go with it, then have someone else print it up and post it! With a new site called One Penny Post, it really is that easy. I often waste so much time searching through postcards whenever I'm in a new destination spot, so this way, I can take my own picture and I don't even have to stress about finding stamps — cause we all know that stamps are often harder to find than the postcard! One Penny Post ships internationally from either Australia, the U.S., or the U.K. (depending on where you do the ordering from), and each postcard costs $2.50. How brilliant is that?
