One of my favourite parts of travelling was getting to send postcards to my loved ones from different destinations; at the same time, I also loved receiving them. But as travel took a hiatus, we (obviously) haven’t been able to do so as much. Regardless, though, there’s something so special about receiving good old snail mail in this day and age — which is why I was so happy to discover TouchNote, a mobile app that lets you send postcards from anywhere in the world.
I’ve had the hardest time finding a way to conveniently send postcards from Metro Manila; so, I really love how you can get everything done with a single app, from designing your postcard to sending it out!
How to send postcards with TouchNote
The TouchNote app is available on both the App Store and the Google Play Store. While the app itself is free, once you download it, you’ll have to create an account and purchase credits. You can take your pick of credit packs that let you send a minimum of five postcards up to a maximum of 90. Prices start at $9.95 (₱500.12) for a five-credit pack.
When you’ve purchased your credits, you’re ready to create your postcards! You can choose from your wide range of designs, or even create your own. To customise your own postcard, you can also upload an existing photo of your choice.
Once you’re set on the design, all you have to do is type in your message and input the recipient’s details. Then, TouchNote will take care of sending it!
Sending postcards with TouchNote: a review
Here’s a cool tip: If you love scribbling, illustrating, or creating designs of your own, you can save them as .jpg or .png and upload them on TouchNote!
I especially love the app because it lets me send personalised cards to my loved ones — and myself. I was able to have one sent to myself and friends both from Metro Manila and San Francisco, and was very happy with the quality. Plus points for TouchNote: If you don’t receive the postcard within their ETA, they’ll send it again for free!
If notes and designs of your own creation are among your love languages, you’ll certainly love sending postcards with the TouchNote app! We can’t wait to see everything you come up with — be sure to tag us on Instagram at @tripzillaph!
