Are you an Instagram lover? Or a snail mail lover? Or a photo craft project lover? Or a family photos on the fridge lover? Or some combination of these? I have something you’ll like. Or looooove. Meet Postagram.Who doesn’t like good snail mail? It warms up your mailbox. And seems to be even more fun now that so much of our mail isn’t tanglible anymore. We send e-mails and texts and Evites. As much as I appreciate all that the internet helps me do, there’s no replacement for a fun card when you pick up the mail. So what Postagram does is perfect. You don’t have to be an Instagrammer to use it, you just have to have a device that will run the (free) Postagram app. You choose a photo (from any album, not just from Instagram pics) and add your caption. Tell Postagram who you’d like to get it, and Postagram prints and mails it for you. For less than a dollar! Just .99! I’ve sent quite a few of these myself. I especially love having a quick way to send physical prints to the non-techie people in my life. Like Grammy. She had no connection to the internet whatsoever, but I could still use the magic interwebs to send her prints easily and while it was on my mind. But I also sent some to my friend who lives seven doors down. Because the magic interwebs are good for that too.
And when you’re finished admiring it as a postcard, the image pops right out. Ready to stick on the fridge or in a little album or to become the center of your next craft project.
I ordered a few for demonstration purposes. And put them on my map wall for a bit.
If I were your friend, and you knew I liked snail mail or photos or crafty photo projects and you *didn’t* share this with me, I’d be kinda mad. So pin it or Facebook it or Google+ it or e-mail it or whatever will keep you out of trouble. Just sayin’.
