Saturday Sips: Sending Joy via Postagram


sending joy via postagram

Hang on to your hats, friends: I finally moved up from my five year old flip phone to an iPhone. Yippeee!

As one of my brothers said, “Welcome to 2005!” 😉


I have already begun to populate my phone with different apps: Wunderground (weather), Camera+ (improved photography capabilities), Candy Crush *she admits with embarrassment*, Bible App, and quite a few others.

My favorite though, is a free one my husband has been using for months: Postagram.


Imagining the possibilities made me feel like this:

All apps are designed to help solve a problem of some sort: getting better organized, tracking personal finances, watching the weather, curing boredom, etc.

I especially love the problem Postagram solves:

How to stay in touch easily, inexpensively, thoughtfully, with something that is unique and lasts, and especially, something that is a true joy to give and receive.

Postagram allows you to send real postcards via your mobile device for 99¢ apiece, including the postage.

And Android users, they have the app for you, too!


Here’s how Postagram works:

Capture.  Take a photo, or choose one from your phone, Facebook, Dropbox or Instagram account.

Create.  Type a maximum of 140 characters. That’s enough to express yourself without having to write a novel. Remember, the picture alone is worth a thousand words!

Click to send joy.  Your recipients will be doing a happy dance the day your postcard arrives in their mailbox.




Consider the possibilities at home and at work:

Holidays: Mother’s Day, anyone?

Occasions: Birthdays, anniversaries, graduations, etc.

Invitations and announcements


Thank you’s

And of course: Just because


You can download the iPhone app here on the iTunes store, and start sending the joy via Postagram!




Question: How would you use Postagram?

  1. Wow! I’d be using it randomly – little delights for people not expecting it.

    • Oh, yes! So much delight in the unexpected! And your pictures are worth at least 5,000 words they are so amazing, Tamara. :-)

  2. Oh how FUN!!!!! So is there a difference here than just sending a video via text? Just curious… :) I should look into this…

    LOVE those images you shared! HILARIOUS and adorable all at once!!!

  3. I switched out my flip phone a couple of years ago. I miss my flip phone. I noticed they have some “modern” ones in the Verizon store and am thinking of going back (altho the new ones do it all now too). I think I’ll stick to filling out my own postcards for now since it is a dying art – letter and postcard writing. I like the idea of it, tho. I’m sure I’ll get on the bandwagon someday although I still don’t Facebook and quit tweeting. Hmmm, I seem to be going backwards.

  4. Aw w, thanks for this one; I would love it to stay in touch with my older grandchildren. It is awesome that you now have an I phone. Technology is so awesome once I learn how to use it.
    Blessings and hugs for this one~
