The goPostal app, a free download from the iPhone App Store, allows you to select a photo from your library or snap one on the spot, write a personal message, choose a recipient, and send.

That’s it!

The 4x 6 postcard, which includes a UV protective coating, is delivered to your U.S. resident of choice via the U.S. Postal Service.

The cost is $1.29 per postcard, which includes postage: both convenient and thrifty for travelers that want to send a customized souvenir to friends and family.

goPostal also allows for more creativity than the generic postcard.

Why send your mom the standard Ipanema Beach shot when she could have a picture of her name spelled out with shells on the sand to stick up on the refrigerator?

Everyone’s seen a photo of the Eiffel Tower, but they haven’t seen you sliding down the banister of its staircase with Paris sprawled out behind you.

The goPostal app also offers businesses a new, unique way to keep in touch with their customers.

Postcards with goPostal can be sent to anyplace in the U.S. from anyplace in the world. For more information, including testimonials, check out their website at www.printyourlife.com.
