The Best Way To Surprise Your Loved Ones Next Time You Are Out Of Town

Everyone loves receiving postcards.  But the experience of sending a postcard leaves much to be desired.  First, there’s the hassle of finding a souvenir shop and picking out the postcard.  Then, you have to deal with postage and finding a mailbox to send it.   Well, not anymore!  Olga and I recently discovered an app called Postcard On The Run, which makes it incredibly easy to take a photograph from your iPhone, Android, Nokia or Windows phone and instantly send it as a real printed postcard to anywhere in the world.  What do you think your friends and family would prefer hanging on the refrigerator — some generic photo of the Eiffel Tower or a photograph of you standing in front of the Eiffel Tower?

If you send 4 or more postcards in a single order, it costs just $.99 per postcard. If you send a postcard within the U.S. it only costs $1.49. If you send a postcard outside of the US it costs $1.69. These prices includes printing, addressing and shipping!  And of course, the reaction from our families was priceless.  They absolutely loved receiving our personalized postcards.  And Olga’s parents received our postcard at their home in Siberia, so Postcard On The Run will make sure you card gets to any destination in the world :)
