Hey, Chelsea here! Back on episode 145 of the podcast (I’m All Booked
I hadn’t actually seen the final product from Postagram (I sent them to friends far away) and Nate hadn’t used Photocard (he saw it on a video podcast). We decided that maybe we should order one from each app and send them to ourselves to compare the entire process and final products.
The idea of being on vacation and being able to create a custom postcard with a picture you just took, then send it to one or many people, and not have to worry about having stamps or finding a post office is pretty cool.
After comparing two postcard printing apps, Postagram and Photocard, I would recommend both of them. They are both easy, affordable and produce a fun, quality product. There are some differences between the two apps, most notably, the size of the postcard. Postagram’s is about 4X6 inches and Photocard’sis almost twice that at 5.5X8.25 inches.
Postagram’s postcard is super quick and easy to design and order. The Photocard app is a little more
