Remember postcards? Those quick missives you’d send from wherever your travels took you to the folks back home? With a picture of something that amused you from your trip on one side and a quick note on the other? Ringing a bell yet? I miss them. But I don’t miss the need to waste precious travel time sitting down to write and address them. Thus: Postly.
Here’s how it works: You take a photo with your phone, choose your recipient from your phone’s address book, and write a note. After you pay ($2), Postly prints your picture on glossy paper, addresses it, writes your note on the other side, and mails it. (You can get fancy, if you like, and turn a few photos into a collage; there are several layouts to choose from.) So you can send real, personalized postcards in the time it takes to snap a few selfies.
Sound cool? It gets cooler: I got you 50 percent off. Download the app here, then use the code in it, and your postcards will be half off.
