Send Pictures as Postcards

The Austrian postal service is launching an innovative smart phone app.

First, take a picture on your smart phone and upload it. Then, add a recipient mailing address and a personal message. The postal service in Austria will generate a postcard, print it on paper and send it (via domestic or international mail) to the recipient.

The cost (1.99 euro for postage and postcard) can be paid via credit card or other payment options).

Now you can send your aunt Mimi a postcard from Austria, with a picture of you in Las Vegas. Just for the heck of it.

No smart phone? You can also upload pictures from a computer with Internet access. No special software is required.
