One last thing - Holiday Cartograms are here!

Sorry for all the shameless self promotion this week folks but I do have one last thing for you ;-)
Don't forget to update your Cartolina app. We have taken some of the Cartograms from last year's discontinued holiday app and added them to the current Cartolina app - and added a few more holiday designs to top it off. Hope you like them. Have a great weekend!

Cartolina Postale - details!

I've had a few emails from people who want to know more about the postcards that you can send from the Cartolina Postale iPhone app. So here goes . . . .
The printing and mailing of the postcards is taken care of by Sincerely. If you have an iPhone you may already be familiar with Sincerely - they are responsible for Postagram and other print on demand systems for iPhone apps. They have loads of experience and that's why they offer a 100% Guarantee. They have a secure site for taking credit cards and they have streamlined the process down to the nth degree! It was important to us, when we entered this partnership, that we were satisfied with the quality of the product and service. We have impeccable customer service at Cartolina and I expect the same for all our products including the iPhone apps. We are delighted with the quality of the postcards and the dedication to service that Sincerely brings to the table and we think you will be too. Whether it's one postcard or hundreds I think you'll be very happy with them. In the US a postcard from Cartolina Postale costs $1.99 and takes less than a week to arrive in the recipient's mail box - you can't beat that!

Cartolina Postale in the New York Times!

Thank you so much for such a great response to the new Cartolina Postale app.
We are so excited to be featured in the New York Times today - I can still hardly believe it :-)

Introducing Cartolina Postale!

I have something special to show you this morning!

This is the new Cartolina Postale iPhone app. YAY!
We've been working on this for a few weeks and are thrilled to announce that it's available, as of today, at the app store.
The response to the Cartolina app has been so overwhelming over the last year that we thought that the natural next step was an app that actually allows you to send physical paper postcards. So the Cartolina Postale app lets you combine our pretty, vintage images with your own photography - it's so fun!

There are 32 postcard designs to choose from, including some lovely holiday designs! You can take a picture using your phone or you can choose a picture from your photo gallery and it pops right onto your chosen card. Then you can scale the image, move it around or change the card design. It's so simple! After you've customized your card and you're happy with how it looks, you can write a message on the back. There's loads of room for your message. You'll be asked to open an account, which is very fast and simple, and from there you can address your card and it will be printed and sent. The app is FREE and the cost of printing and mailing a 4 x 6 postcard in the US is $1.99. Cards arrive very quickly - within 5 days according to our tests (in the US and UK) and a little longer to Canada. The quality of the cards is great, shiny, bright, heavy weight card. For even more information why don't you visit the Cartolina Postale website - it's very fun!

Details: Our super talented developer is Denis Hennessy at Peer Assembly - thank you Denis for all your hardwork!
The app is available for iPhone and iPod Touch right now and will be available for iPad by the end of the month. It will work on your 3GS as long as you have iOS 4.0 installed. The cost to mail a card to Canada is $2.99 but apparently Sincerely, who take care of the printing and mailing of the cards, are working really hard to bring us a $1.99 card in Canada asap, so stay tuned!
