Instagram has greatly appealed to both professional photographer community as well as the hobbyists. Consider it a social network for photos clicked on iPhone. But that’s limited to online sharing only. Enter Postagram. A new service in the form of iPhone app that lets you print and send Instagram postcards to any part of the world for 99 cents.
Postagram is the brainchild of Brian Kennedy and Matt Brezina who were also the co-founders of Xobni.
Who will use Postagram?
Postagram is going to appeal to the following people mainly:
- Those who love sending postcards
- Those who wanted to have a real hard copy of their Instagram creations
- Travelers who want to send postcards back home
- Polaroid lovers
Well that’s just a small list but you do get an idea.
Just like Instagram, Postagram uses a no fuss interface. It does just one task – print and send Instagram postcards for you and does that well.
What you need to use Postagram?
Well you definitely need an Instagram account first since that’s where the photos come from, and a credit card to pay for the postcards. The iPhone app itself comes free and can be downloaded from the App Store here.
What do the postcards look like?
I’m yet to send an Instagram postcard for myself but here’s what the Postagram team promises:
- All Postagrams are printed on thick, high quality photo postcards at 300dpi resolution.
- Postagrams are personalized with the Instagram profile photo of the sender
- An optional 140 character message can be included
Also, the Instagram photo can be popped out of the postcard as a 2.5×2.5inch photo to use in a photo frame.
The delivery takes 2-5 days to ship in the US and a little longer for international delivery. However, the charges are the same no matter where you choose to send.
Using Postagram on your computer:
Well, you can surely use your iOS device to send postcards but that’s not the only method. Just head over to postagramapp.com and order postcards using your computer’s browser.
