Docmail Postcards lets you send beautiful, real, physical photo postcards in the mail – straight from your iPhone!
Imagine sending a holiday postcard & it arriving home before you. Our cards, printed & mailed in the UK can do that.
Send a snapshot of your day, show someone you care, make someone laugh... ...send a postcard, from Docmail.
The cards are created, printed and mailed for just £0.44p to the UK and just £1.06p Worldwide!
What's more, these real, physical photo postcards aren’t just for holidays. These cards let you show someone your message, rather than just write it. After all, a picture’s worth a thousand words. Surprise or remind someone with a real photo through the mail, drum up support for an upcoming event, send a memento of a day out or that big occasion, or even just a cheeky hint to a loved one.
Docmail was created by us, a professional, commercial printer, so the quality is truly amazing. These are real, physical postcards mailed to any postal address worldwide.

Broken (by iOS 10)
I've used this app for many years, but now it simply doesn't work if you're on iOS 10 (most of it's buttons have stopped working).
The new iOS 10 update broke it, & Docmail haven't updated this app for 4 years! I've also emailed them today. [Update: they replied that they're already working to make it compatible with iOS 10, & expect it to be available by late summer 2017. Part of the delay is while they also add a few new features too].
A real shame as these excellent colour, customisable postcards to UK are only 52p each (Jan 2017), compared to all the competitors who charge very much more (£1.50-£4).
The firm Docmail behind this app are here to stay, as they've been around far longer than the iPhone. They are no small concern, with a large secure factory (Bristol, UK) full of 100%-automated printers & envelope-stuffers. They print 100k's of letters a day for banks, PIN reminder letters, doctor's surgeries, etc. So this postcard app was lucky to have access to such a professional production facility.
I have no connection with Docmail, it's that they usually provide what the customer wants.
This app makes great promises but after numerous chances and attempts I'm more indignant by this app than any other. The concept is fine and the interface ok, but having spent ages putting together the postcards, firstly go into settings and you lose your saved work, secondly the payment options are rubbish. PayPal fails with correct user/password data - try adding credit to docmail and the same problem. After hours of checking my accounts and losing saved work I'm highly peeved as you may have guessed!
You've ironed out the problems caused by iOS 6 and the app works great again. The postcards are good quality and with my Docmail Account great value.
I use it all the time. Nice to have you working again. 8-D
