Images can be added from the global image gallery, facebook, flickr 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.
Lonely Planet Images is a digital image library with a unique and comprehensive collection of over 300,000 downloadable travel photographs taken by some of the best travel photographers in the business. The selected image collection for sendmypostcards.com captures the diversity of the world's countries: from the major tourist attractions to everyday scenes, from popular destinations to little known places off the beaten track.
