Put your favourite photos front and centre this Christmas. are a convenient and popular way of showing someone that you appreciate and remember them. The tradition of sending postcards has been around for hundreds of years and in that time the traditional postcard template of a photo on one side of a card and message and address on the back hasn’t changed. However, PostSnap has upgraded the way people send postcards. Instead of purchasing a ready made, traditional postcard from a shop and finding a stamp you can use our website to send your own photos as real printed postcards. With PostSnap even the busiest person can send a postcard in the same time it takes to type out a text message. You can use PostSnap’s website to create and send postcards when you are on the beach, on a cruise ship or even on a mountainside.
PostSnap is a UK-based postcard company which has been around since 2015. We were one of the first postcard companies on the market and we have printing facilities in England, the USA and Australia. By sending real printed postcards instead of texts and social media messages, you are showing your recipient that they deserve the effort and you're giving them a memento that they can keep and cherish. There’s a real charm to giving something that people can touch, re-read and even display. With a generic shop bought postcard you’re limited to what’s available at your local shop or post office whereas with PostSnap your own pictures can be uploaded and used as the background image for your Postcard. Our postcard creator gives you a range of features to really let your creativity shine. We also have a great range of photo christmas cards.
