Happy Mail Day - Send a Holiday Postcard with the FUNCARD App (with Giveaway!)

[Werbung:] Summer, adventures, holidays! I hope you are all having a wonderful summertime and enjoy your vacation or at least a long weekend to the fulltest! :) This time, I have teamed up with Deutsche Post to show you a new app that they have developed, an app with which you can send postcards to your loved ones from all over the world, the FUNCARD App.
With this app, you don't have to buy a normal postcard and bring it to the post office and hope that it will arrive at your loved one's home before you are back yourself. Instead, you can use your own holiday photos and use the app to get them printed and delivered for you. But let's start at the beginning of the process:


The FUNCARD App - Send a Postcard with Your Own Photos

First of all, enjoy your holidays and have a lovely time off! This can either be someplace else in the world or even in the area where you live! Go on holidays in your own town - discover new places and share the love for the spots you love the most and then send away postcards and invite your loved ones to join you next time!
So here's how the FUNCARD App works: take photos. Then download the app, load your photos into the app, edit them if you want to, add text, a message and the adress and then let the German post get the postcard delivered for you. So here it is in detail:
Download the FUNCARD app for iOS or download the FUNCARD app for Android smartphones and tablets. Moreover, there will shortly be the release of the FUNCARD app for Windows phones as well.
Inside the app, you can upload the photos you have taken (make sure the photo quality is good!) and then you can individually design your postcards which can then be shipped worldwide with the app. You can use several filters or can even add text to the front side of the postcard.
Then you can add a text to the postcard's back and add the adress of the recipient. What is extra cool it that there is the function to send serial cards: you can create individual serial cards which can then individually be sent to different recipients. You can pay via credit card or pay pal, one postcard with shipping costs 1,90€ and handling the app is super easy.
As a next step, the German post will send away your postcards. They are produced in Germany and usually shipping of the cards takes only 24 hours. The cards are embellished with stamps and then shipped worldwide.
Eeeeks, so pretty! The cardboard is really thick and of a nice quality.
You can use different fonts and letter colors for the postcard's back.
The colors are bright and shiny and the postcards arrived within just two days, wohoo!
That was super easy and comfortable and I love the idea of sending postcards with my own holiday photos directly from my phone, this is so so practical and personal.
