FREE POSTCARD INCLUDED: First postcard is printed and mailed absolutely free anywhere in the US!
WIRED called Snapshot Postcard the "the spiritual successor to the Polaroid".

Keep memories alive by sending keepsake picture postcards from your next vacation. Forget about email! It’s more memorable and just more fun for your friends to get a SnapShot Postcard in their mailbox.

Sending a SnapShot Postcard is also a great way to reach out to people who don’t use email, maybe grandparents or young nieces and nephews.

From iPhone to mailbox in four simple steps:
1. Choose your photo
2. Enter message and address details
3. Tap on “Send”
4. Your postcard is printed, addressed, postage applied, and mailed!

Do you want to adjust or "zoom" your photo? Just "pinch and zoom" and you can. To clear, just shake!

Your postcard will be printed in high quality color with a glossy coating. It is mailed first class, with the return address you supply (not ours).

Postcards sent to US address costs 1 credit, international addresses cost 2 credits (includes mailing costs). After your first free postcard, additional credits can be purchased through Settings for as low as $0.86 each (US). We take credit cards or PayPal.

Make a memory special. Mail real postcards to real mailboxes directly from your iPhone!

Used to love it


I've been using this app for years and I used to absolutely love it until I figured out that many of the cards don't reach their destinations. I suspected this last summer when I sent a bunch of vacations postcards and found out a couple people didn't get them. Figured it was a fluke so I continued using it. I just got back from a vacation where I got engaged so we used the postcards to send engagement announcements from afar along with just a general postcard about our trip. About 10% of the people did not get them. Some people got one but not the other. Some people got two of the same ones. The other problem is that the cards take forever. This is the second vacation where the postcards have met come until after we've returned.

Hi Aclisha1,

Ack, I hate to hear this. I promise you we have close relationships with our vendors and rigorous process management and quality control. Please let us know if you do experience issues as we do guarantee delivery (to US addresses). (

And sorry this reply is so slow...I am just now figuring out how to reply to App Store reviews (I know, a little behind the times) is best way to reach us. (Although will be doing better at managing our reviews going forward.)


Traveling? Get it


Why would you want to send pre made postcards back to family when you can send postcards you've made from pictures you've taken while you're traveling around the world? That's what I'm currently doing so this app is perfect for all the countries I wasn't able to get postcards in. I wish I'd have heard of it sooner actually could have saved a bunch of money too! would definitely recommend, my family back home says they look amazing

Thanks Eruhl, Exactly, why wouldn't you send custom postcards, and it saves money when travelling internationally. Well put. Best, Ben

Great Quality, Price & Customer Svc


I found this app after being disappointed by Touchnote's increasing prices. I sent a thank you postcard to a friend for a baby gift & she raved about the quality of the card! I am so happy with the credit pack prices & am glad to have found my new photo postcard app! I'm preggo w/ baby #2 & love to send photos to the grandparents quickly & easily!
