Weve sent them from hogsmeade in universal. My dad loves a postcard from everyones holiday, regardless how long it takes . DD was in New Orleans and put it off until the day she was leaving. She had to run down the street from her hotel to post it just before leaving for the airport. I think theyll be like vinyl records and make a come back one day

Exactly what I was going to suggest. Lovely quality personal postcards, with no hassle of finding stamps or post boxes. Been doing it for years

Each to their own and all that. We send postcards to the like of my grand parents who dont even know what a smart phone is.

Just looked at that app... it looks quite good and they print and post the card for you!

Its not just that. Im all for the 21st century (My job is a technologist), but a hand written post card posted with a US post mark is something my grandparent etc cherish. Computer printed from the UK, probably not as much to be honest.

As I say, each to their own and all that!

Recipients get a proper post card, its just you that will need the APP. They are sent from the Channel Islands so arrive a couple of days after you do them. My in laws love getting a post card of the kids

Grandparents here love a postcard too but boy theyre a lot harder to get hold of nowadays, theyre really dying out. Found a rack with a choice of about 5 in Hollywood studios, asked for stamps and the lady picked a book out from under the counter, blew off the dust and opened it up to blank spaces where stamps should have been!

I tried the hogsmeade one with Harry Potter postcards but it worked out incredibly expensive so I didnt use that one in the end. Like others, I used the UPS store in Championsgate. I think my parents would cherish a handwritten postcard from the children sent from the holiday location itself much more than an internet version personally.

Whenever I go on holiday abroad I always send myself a postcard as I like seeing the stamp, postmark etc.
