Stannp - Anne at Taj MahalMost of us have had the experience of arriving home from a holiday only to find the postcards we've sent lag behind a week or two – or never arrive at their destination. Some countries are worse than others and for those trsvelling off the beaten track, just finding somewhere to post the card can  be a major hurdle.

Not any more! Now you can use Stannp.com and send your own photgraphic memory via the internet to arrive the next day if you upload before 2pm (UK time). I tried this out and was delighted when friends told me the postcards had arrived and how impressive they were!

What’s the deal?
The first postcard is free so you can test the service. Postcards cost 1 credit to be sent to the UK and 2 credits to be sent to foreign destinations.
1 credit           £1.99             (£1.99 per credit)   
3 credits         £5.37              (£1.79 per credit)
5 credits         £7.95              (£1.59 per credit)
10 credits       £13.90            (£1.39 per credit)
25 credits       £29.75            (£1.19 per credit)
50 credits       £49.50            (£0.99 per credit)

You can add text, image effects, overlay fun stickers and perform a variety of editing techniques. The cards are printed on  350gsm Trucard with a laminate finish which protects cards from the Royal Mail high speed sorting machines.

You can download the Stannp application to your iPhone or for use from a computer. The service is simple to use and effective.

You can also save your images to Facebook or send as a email (both free). One of the great features of this is you can take a photo of your children and immediately send to a family member who may not have access to email or a computer.
