Postagram Review

After my Instagram Photostrip post, I was contacted by a representative from Postagram to try out their mobile app.  They sent me a couple of credits so I could send a few postcards.

Hello, no brainer.

I love Instagram.
I love postcards.

Win-Win.


With the app, you sign in and purchase credits to mail cards.  It's only 99 cents, and includes the printing and postage.  I figure that this is a pretty good deal considering you get the postage AND a personalized card... and you don't have to find a place to mail it :)


You can also use FB photos so you don't even need an Instagram account!!!


This is what the screen of my phone looked like while I selected my picture and added text.  You go through the steps and add the recipient's address and everything.

Super simple... the hardest part is choosing what picture to send!


It arrived!  I sent one to my mom while I was in New York City.  I didn't tell her that I had sent it so it was an added surprise for her.


Soccer Mom reading the postcard!



The picture part pops out and the message is also printed on the back!!!  This is my favorite part.

Oh, it's too fun!

Guess what!!!  I want to send someone else a Postagram!  Leave a comment on this post and I will choose one recipient on February 3.  Be sure to leave your email address so I can find you if you win :-)

    Would love to see what this looks like in person. Might add it to my "pros" list for possibly switching phones...
