This week belated Valentine’s arrived from my nieces. Yippee! One of them included a poem that made my day. It’s an acrostic made out of the letters of my name and read a bit like a personal ad.

Awesome

Yells on roller coasters

While I’ve never been on a roller coaster with her, she’s right, I do! I also dance with delight when I receive mail. Several years ago a friend introduced me to amazingmail.com and I have never been quite the same! You can make personalized post cards (or many other forms of mailings) using either your own photos or ones from their galleries. It has allowed me to send personalized messages for birthdays, holidays, sympathy cards, thank you, anniversaries, and just for fun.

I’ve also noticed that I’m more present with my daily life as I’m on the look out for a good photo for postcards that I might not need for months. You can read about the pricing on their website, but for a sense of how reasonable it is, you can buy 10-24 postcards that will be mailed in the US for $.92! That includes making and mailing it. They now have international rates as well.

Because I love sending and receiving mail, I wanted to show you how easy it is so I created a nine step easy-to-use tutorial. Click this picture for the free and easy to follow PDF:

9 steps to send postcards

Here are several samples:

Here’s a “see you soon” and I’ll show you the front and back:

Have fun! Q4U: Who are you going to send a postcard to? What mail have you received in your mail box recently?

    Alright, this is what a cheesy nut I am, I love amazingmail.com so much I just went to live chat with them to see how I could help promote them, and found out they have great customer service. I forgot to mention that if you sign up for their mailing list (which doesn’t come very often), you’ll get promotional codes and then can buy postcards on the cheap! I know I have just crossed the line into informercial land … but you know I love informercials too :)

    I love using amazingmail. You got me hooked and it really is fun to create your own. I sent Happy Chinese New Year cards to people back home. It really is easy and quick to do.

    As a frequent recipient of your postcards, I can honestly say there is nothing better than receiving a personalized note out of the blue. And QOTD, who knows where your cover photo for the PDF tutorial comes from?

    Thank you so much for sharing! I used it to send a wonderful card back to the States! Such an idea deserves an infomercial AND an audience!
