Cards In The Post

by James

We’ve made friends with a new UK startup called Cards In The Post. You know the problem: you’re away and you want to send a friend or family a postcard to say hi and finding a postcard and a stamp and a postbox is such as pfaff. They get rid of the pfaff by enabling you to customise and write a postcard and then send it, all from the site.

Anyway, they’ve offered Folksy people a free trial – send 3 cards for free by using the discount code “folksyfree” (lowercase) in the checkout.  If you’re not going on holiday you could just send friends pics of your latest beautiful handmade work.

Have a happy holiday!

I tried, typed in the code and it said code not recognised sorry…..
I also tried to make a second card and it just duplicated the message and address that I had made for the first one….not clear how to do the other two….

I managed to make my three cards …..you have to use the code in LOWER CASE….!!
BUT it wouldn’t let me send to three different people, so I had to send identical ones to the same person…….a bit confusing although the finished cards look great….

Hi Brenda,
Thanks for the feedback – changed to lowercase.
If you could also feedback your experience to the guys at Cards In The Post they’d really appreciate it.

Just had a peek and it looks a brilliant idea as sometimes holiday postcards ar a bit naff, now you can create your own.
Also thanks to Folksy we get 3 for free.

Another thing that stomps on the paper crafters on this site. Perhaps you should be encouraging users to look at the wonderful array of paper craft items on Folksy rather than encouraging to use a different digital site…

Hi Jill,
We don’t see this as competition, this is quite a different kind of service and if anything likely to encourage people to send more postcards and cards and sourcing these from Folksy – realising that it’s nice to send cards. Think of it a bit like the Moo offer we promote which allows Folksy sellers to print business cards with Moo. People taking up this offer are those who would usually get their cards printed at a commercial printer – we just make it easier and cheaper for them. We wouldn’t consider promoting anything that would directly compete with existing Folksy sellers.
