Cell phone postcards? What will they come up with next?

I have to admit, I was not really sure how great cell phone postcards would be. I mean, how great can a picture look on a postcard? Little did I know it would look totally awesome!

I took a picture of my three little girls in thier new tinkerbell jammies in front of the christmas tree. I was really happy I hadn't sent out any christmas cards yet (yes, I am a procrastinator). I uploaded the picture I took to my computer and added it to After that I added all the family I was going to send postcards too. It was really cool 'cause it's like an address book on thier site, and it's super easy to use, find people you want to send to, add family & friends, etc. So now they even made my life a little easier because I don't have to search my house for my address book!

Next I just typed in my little christmas message from me, hubby, & the kids, and voila! I was done in like ten minutes with my christmas postcards. If I was sending out other cards, it would've taken me forever. I liked this because it was a personalized christmas card that I didn't have to hand over an arm & leg to pay for it. I live two states away from my family, so I knew my mom would be thrilled to get this in the mail. They use the whole postcard and fill it with the picture you use.

I am a bzzagent, what that means is that I get to try out products for free from companies that want my opinion. I got 10 free postcards to send to friends and family. After the 10, they are only 99 cents. Don't worry, you get ten free too to try it out ;) I think that is more than reasonable (unlike the people at the mall who want to take your childs picture with santa and charge 22.99 for a sheet. No joke! We went this past week.)

The only flaw I can see with cellphone postcards is that they need some kind of protector over the picture. Some rain got on our picture(they sent a copy, luckily it was that one) and it messed it up a little in one spot. Not a lot, but what if we had had a thunderstorm? That's the only downfall I see. Other than that,, you are good in my book!
