If you’re like me, you know your friends and family love receiving cards or little notes but always remember at the last minute that you need to actually mail the things. I don’t know about you, but my cards and notes are perpetually late. Embarrassing.
Have you heard of RedStamp? I stumbled across this handy app about a month ago and have already become obsessed.
RedStamp is a free iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch app that lets users send electronic and printed cards or notes in the latest and greatest melding of traditional and new media.
Important Things to Know:
RedStamp is easy to use.
Not only is the app sleekly designed but it is also visually stunning. A easy to read menu allows for breezy browsing and RedStamp even remembers your name, home address and automatically pulls up your address book. You can also link to your facebook account to upload dates into the Events tab.
RedStamp is highly customizable.
One of the things that hooked me on RedStamp was the sheer number of options. From sweetly designed thank you and announcement cards to funky invites or photo centric designs, there are more than enough templates to choose from.
Within each category are also sub categories. For example, within the “Say Hello” category are the options of “Grateful for You,” “Great to See You,” “Hi There,” “Miss You” and even “We Landed.”
If that wasn’t enough, there are even prompts for what to write to someone based on their age, sex and the closeness of the acquaintance. The possibilities are endless.
RedStamp is reliable.
I sent Valentine’s Day cards all over the country using RedStamp. They arrived early after convenient order and shipping confirmation emails. They were a huge hit with my family and friends who loved their fun designs and the personal pictures I added to some of them. I even used the “Pop-Out” option for a few so that the photo I included was able to punch out for convinient placement on the fridge or a bulletin board.
The best part? Cards sent via email, text or Facebook and Twitter are all free. The printed and mailed “post cards” only cost $1.99 each. When it comes to the hassle of remembering to get a card, finding one that isn’t ridiculously expensive, locating your stamps and then finally making it to the post office, this one is a no brainer.
