A new business, sendmypostcards.com, is launching on 1st July 2011 to target the growing online card market in UK&I.

The service enables a user to quickly create and edit a personalised postcard using their computer and then sendmypostcards.com prints and sends the postcard on their behalf. The Dublin and London based team is aiming to create 10+ new smart-economy jobs within 18 months of launch.

Images can be added from facebook, flickr, the 15,000 global image gallery or their own camera/phone/computer to create a memorable postcard.

An estimated 135 million plus postcards are sent and received per year in UK&I - summer holidays are a peak period.

Why use sendmypostcards.com?
Ever been on holidays and intended to send a postcard home, but found it a hassle finding some stamps, the right card and postbox?

Not everyone is handy with a camera. That’s why sendmypostcards.com are lucky enough to work with talented photographers.

Cards can be personalised with a person’s own image (or one from our gallery), a selection of handwriting and unique messages for front of card.

The service costs €1.79 for the printing and postage of a single postcard anywhere in the world yielding a consumer saving versus the high street. Cards can be created quickly and easily while on the go.

The site also includes a simple “copy card” feature, which enables quick replication of the same postcard – suitable for sending to many recipients or also for occasions requiring announcements or thanks.

Sendmypostcards.com dates: the service launches this week

Key target audience: UK & Ireland travelling consumers

Quality: Product focus on postcard excellence, 330g high quality product with glossy image front and high print quality. Our print partners, Kilmartins are an established print company with approximately 145 years experience.

Convenience: The consumer does not have to find a shop or stamp or post box. Sendmypostcards.com does all the work. Our service is a one-stop-shop for consumers’ postcard needs.

Global range and high image quality: achieved through partnerships with global photography talent.

Personalisation: the consumer can design their own card: chose image, message on front and back with selected font type. The user’s tailor made postcard is printed and posted for less than the price of sending a generic high street one with stamps.

The team is currently developing an easy to use version of the site for smart phones to be released later in the year.

Background
Sendmypostcards.com aims to use technology to re-invigorate a traditional product -Revamping the postcard!!

Guttenberg’s press kicked off the paper wave of sharing information rapidly through print media and the internet has accelerated our communication and sharing potential.

The way society communicates has evolved significantly from king’s couriers and telegraphs to instant messaging and iPad Skype sessions. However what remains common is that a picture combined with a message evokes more emotion and pleasure for the recipient.

So, sendmypostcards.com – making sharing easier this summer! And say “Wish you were here” not “wsh u wr ere”.
