Postcards Going Digital

Students studying abroad are focused on the new culture and schoolwork, but it’s also important to keep in touch with family and friends. Sure, there’s the usual way of emails, phone calls, videos, and messaging. But there’s another interesting way that people might not think of first–postcards. Especially with all the easy digital ways of communication, postcards are often overlooked. However, they have a charm to them–they capture the spirit of travel, exploration, and new experiences. Now, there’s a way to send postcards easily and digitally with the app TouchNote. This is done in 3 simple steps:

  1. Choose a photo
  2. Add a message and address
  3. They print and mail it anywhere in the world
