Send a postcard to Summer camp

Summer camp postcard_postsnap2

Summer camp season is upon us! While your little one is having the time of their lives, remind them you’re thinking of them by sending a personalised postcard.

You could even send one early so they have a warm welcome card to put a smile on their face during this fun – but perhaps slightly scary – adventure. Personalise your card with funny stories, photos and words of advice and we’ll send it straight to camp.

Then upon their return, make a souvenir card to remember their amazing time away!

Putting pet dogs on your Mother's Day card.

Mum's pet dog is on your personalised Mother's Day cardDoes Mum’s dog star on Mother’s Day cards rather than you? ? ?

We have seen an influx of Mother’s Day cards featuring pictures of pet spaniels and dachshunds rather than sons and daughters.

Don’t get me wrong, using photos of the forever photogenic pug that Mum adores on Mother’s Day cards certainly takes the pressure off!

(Especially on those days when our selfie faces are not on point…)

Would your mum prefer a Mother’s Day card from her ‘fur-baby’ too?

Send a family photo for Mother's Day

Make Mother’s Day extra special and create a personalised card using your own photos. If you’re not sure what photos to use, here are some ideas…

Send a photo of the kids for Mother's DaySilly photos
Dress up the kids and take a few silly snaps for a montage photo card for mum. Or dig out a fun family photo to make into a Large Postcard – these are bigger than a standard card and easy to frame as a gift.

Spot the difference
For the adult daughters out there, dig around for a photo of you when you were 21 and find a photo of your mum when she was 21. Upload them to Postsnap and use the two-photo layout to show the photos side-by-side. You may be surprised by how similar you both are!

Find the cutest photo of your mum’s beloved dog, cat or horse. For those days when you haven’t got your selfie-face on, a photo of the fur-babies (or as my mum has referenced them as: ‘your adopted siblings’) should do the trick!

Holiday
Find your favourite family holiday photo together. Maybe it was 10 years ago, or perhaps last summer. If you can’t choose one, select a few and make a photo montage with them.

Embarrassing photo of Mum
Perms from the 80s, shoulder pads, puffy high school ball gowns, drunken dance at Christmas two years ago… You know where the photo evidence is. And they all deserve to be on a card.

Find a lovely photo of you and mum – maybe even look into getting a professional photo done of you both. It’ll be perfect to have on a card, and perhaps even get a print done to make into a canvas to display on the wall.

No matter what photos you choose, a personalised card will surely make Mum’s day!

Postsnap personalised Valentine's Day greeting card I'd always swipe right for you

We often get asked for the price of postcard stamps to and from popular destinations such as the UK, Canada, Australia and the USA. So here is a guide for rates for mailing cards.

Where to buy postcards
You can buy stamps at the Post Office or major super markets, such as Tesco, Sainsbury’s and Asda. But the pricing generally stays the same.

The standard postcard rate
Sending a postcard within the UK is surprisingly good value using the UK’s Royal Mail. A standard 6 x 4 (148mm x 105mm) postcard is treated as a smaller letter and costs just 64p for the 1st class service or 55p if you choose 2nd class.*

The standard postcard design is classed as a smaller letter because they weigh less than 4 grams. Ours weigh closer to 7 grams because we use thicker card, with our large postcards weighing 13 grams – but with no extra postage charge.

Send a breathtaking personalised PostcardHowever, if you are sending postcards abroad from the UK, the postage rates increase substantially. It can set you back around £1.05 to send a postcard internationally. That’s expensive for postcard mailing, let alone the cost of the card.

Australia charges $1 (£0.62) for domestic postcards, and $2.75 (£1.71) for postcards sent beyond New Zealand or Asia.

USA charges $0.38 (£0.28) for postcards sent domestically, but $1.15 (£0.95) for everywhere else.

Using your phone to send a postcard
Being part of Generation Y, sending handwritten post is not something I am completely familiar with. I remember having to send my first postcard (without mum’s guidance) not that long ago.

The dumb-founded look on the Post Office clerk’s face as I waved a postcard in front of her, asking what do I need to do to get this to New Zealand? was a tad embarrassing.

Having postage included on the card or postcard would certainly take the hassle (and embarrassment) out of posting. Therefore, creating and posting greeting cards and postcards online is becoming the best way to avoid standing in a Post Office line for half your lunch break.

Thankfully, using apps to send postcards is an easy solution for us Millennials and Gen-Ys. It’s much cheaper and doesn’t involve setting a foot in the local Post Office.

Postsnap for example enables you to make and send your postcard all in one go – without leaving the sofa or sun bed. With printers in England, West Coast of USA and in Australia’s New South Wales, no matter where your recipient is they will receive their cards quickly.

Our international postage prices never more than £0.50 or $o.50, with free postage within UK – making them cheap postcards in comparison.

With so many families and friends living overseas, keeping in touch isn’t always easy. But sending postcards with your own photos is a gesture that goes a long way without the fuss or stress.

I know my non-Facebook-using family in New Zealand enjoy seeing what I’m up to in the UK, and even keep my postcards to frame and display on the mantle piece.
