Ok, so you’re down here in Buenos Aires, enjoying the warm December weather while all your friends and family are stuck back in the northern hemisphere freezing and waiting for the holidays. Why not cheer them up and send them an old-fashioned, non-electronic holiday card? Ahh, right, all the hassles with postage and sending things from Buenos Aires…
Well, luckily, Google comes to the rescue – if you don’t mind a little Gmail branding that is. As part of a new promotion, Google will send one free holiday card via snail-mail for you. There are six different designs to choose from.
You say, “One card is not enough for all the people I know! AND, I want to personalize my card!” Well then, check out Hippopost. They allow you to turn any photo into a postcard and add a customized message to the back. They add a small advertising message and then send the card to any US or Canadian address. You can do this from your mobile phone, the web or Facebook. (Be careful choosing which drunken one to use and who you send it to.) They have a limit of sending 2 per day, so you’d better get started now.
Ok, now you have no excuse not to send snail-mail cards to everyone you know…get to it!
