I remembered my friends and I used to send one another greeting cards on special occasions, such as Christmas, Chinese New Year or even birthdays. Technology advances throughout the years which have replaced snail mails. I missed those days when my mail-box was flooded by greeting cards.
Yearning to receive a greeting from your special someone via snail mail is so wonderful! A greeting card is way more thoughtful and personal than a text message, an email, a comment on the facebook's wall or clicking a 'like' on the status or activity on facebook. A physical card is an object that you can have as a keepsake and it will never fail to put a smile on your face when you look at it over and over again.
Recently, I attended a launch of a new mobile application, POST-A-CARD by Singapore Post...
We were to about to unveil the new mobile application that is available for iPhone and Android users.
The latest innovative service allows consumers to send picture-perfect postcards from and to anywhere in the world from their smart-phones. It brings back a more personal experience: a feeling joy of receiving and holding an actual postcard, an extended memento of love from your loved ones.
To encourage the public to reconnect with personal mail, Singapore Post is giving the first Post-a-Card free (for a limited period only). This application allows the customers to snap a photo, add a personal message, and send it as a high-quality printed postcard conveniently from smart-phones to anyone for any occasion. The 4 inch x 6 inch high quality glossy postcard is printed and delivered by Singapore Post to the addressee either in Singapore or anywhere in the world.
With mobile devices gaining popularity in today's fast changing world, Post-a-Card merges the old and new means of communication via new mobile technology to create a personalized message postcard and send the greeting out to anywhere all over the world from the smart-phones.
The Post-a-Card mobile application can be downloaded free of charge from iTunes App Store or Google Play. After the initial download, customers can access the postcard application anytime. Each postcard costs SGD$1.90 if sent within Singapore, and SGD$2.50 if sent to anywhere else in the world. Customers can pay using credit cards, Pay Pal or prepaid credits.
Just snap a photo or use existing photos from your smart-phone.

I chose a template and I have selected one of the photos from my mobile phone gallery.
I wrote my message, all I have to do next is to add in the delivery address and the whole process will be complete... Settle the payment and Singapore Post will then print out the postcard and send it to the said address in Singapore or overseas.
Post-a-Card is a sweet application and service provided by Singapore Post, as it brings back the warm feeling of receiving a real greeting that most of us have been missing in today's digital age. Everyone feels touched to receive a personalized greeting, be it a letter or a postcard. It is definitely a new way to stay in touch and let the people you care for feel your sincere greeting.
