A real postcard adds a personal touch and can really make someone’s day
London, United Kingdom (PRWEB) August 01, 2012
Samsung today announced that it has partnered with Touchnote to extend the London celebrations to everywhere in the world by inviting everyone to send real, printed postcards for free to commemorate their favorite moments this summer.
The campaign will run to the end of the summer on Friday August 31st, and allows consumers to send free postcards via their smartphones or online with Touchnote, the award-winning mobile postcards start-up.
Whether people are on holiday, travelling to far-flung corners of the world or visiting London this month, they will be able to send their photos as real, printed postcards to friends and family, absolutely anywhere in the world for free during the campaign.
People can share their photos as real postcards with family and friends through Touchnote’s Android app, the campaign website and the Facebook app. Additionally, people using the Samsung GALAXY Note and S-pen will be able to include hand-writing on the free postcards.
Raam Thakrar, co-founder of Touchnote added: “In today’s world of sharing photos digitally on Facebook and email, it is easy to forget how special it is to receive something in the mail. A real postcard adds a personal touch and can really make someone’s day. Touchnote is based on the philosophy that certain moments should live forever and this summer will undoubtedly be filled with incredible moments. We’re delighted that Samsung is giving everyone the opportunity to make their memories permanent, wherever they are, simply by getting online or using their smartphone. We’ve also worked hard to optimize the Touchnote experience for the Samsung GALAXY Note so users can experience more such as hand-writing in various colors and different pen functions to fully express their emotions."
Through to the end 31st August, Samsung will be giving away hundreds of thousands of postcards through:
