This is the official blog for the Postsnap App - for personalised postcards while on the go.
Firstly, it depends on what tone you’re aiming for. Have you been together with your significant other for fifteen years and want to keep it light and casual? Have you just started dating? Or, is it your second anniversary and are searching for the perfect words to express your undying love?
Don’t despair! Here are some ideas for you to draw inspiration from…
OPTION 1. If you’ve been together for yonks and want to go for the fun and light-hearted tone, keep it painfully casual. If you’ve been together for so long, Valentine’s Day does become more of a chore. So maybe just embrace it rather than trying too hard.
OPTION 2. There’s no shame in using romantic quotes to your advantage! Elton John, Moulin Rouge and The Notebook are icons in the romantic film/music genre, so don’t be afraid to use their words to express your love:
OPTION 3. If you’re not sure where you’re at and need to keep it cool and ‘bro-mantic’, then keep it sweet and harmless with food-related comedy:
Top tip: If all else fails, chuck a load of confetti in the card so that it falls everywhere when they open it. They’ll never be able to pick up all the confetti, so when they come across bits of glitter in the carpet weeks later, they’ll think of you. ?? #genius

Thinking of You Week is the best excuse to get back in touch and say ‘remember that time when…’.
For those friends you promise to stay in touch with, but never get around to texting. For that distant aunt who you send a shop-bought Christmas card to every year. For those cousins who moved away years ago, and only wish a ‘HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!’ to on their Facebook wall.
Let those important friends and family members know that you are still aware of their existence by sending them a personalised greeting card, reminding them of the good old days.
Dig out those embarrassing graduation photos with your university friends, or the 50 Shades of Beige fashion styles worn at your christening.
The best thing about Thinking of you Week is that it restarts communication between you all again. Just like the old days.

Postsnap is perfect for weddings. Many of our customers use postcards and invitation cards as part of their big day – some ideas are particularly creative.
Postsnap offers invitations, which many of our customers use as wedding invitations. They are wallet-friendly because they are sold in bulk. There’s also an opportunity to ‘send back to me with blank envelopes’, which allows you to handwrite your invites before mailing them out yourself in the blank envelopes included.
Top tip: An increasing amount of customers use our glossy postcard range as invitations to create a unique travel-themed invite.
Our invitations and postcards are perfect for the thank you letters to guests after the wedding.
There’s plenty of space to type your personalised messages at the back. If you choose the invitations then you can send them back to yourself to handwrite your message on, before posting them out to your wedding guests.
Top tip: Practice your calligraphy for a super fancy invite! Our Postsnap designers recommend water brushes with drawing ink.
We’ve heard of our creative customers using Postsnap’s announcement card range as name plaques at the dinner table. These double-up as a very cool keepsake too, as you can write a lovely message on the back.
Instead of using their names, you could just use your favourite photos of your guests.

’tis the time to take your A-Levels! The results may influence what you do next year in terms of education, but it does not necessarily dictate what you do with the rest of your life. So, to make you feel a bit better, here are six people who have dropped out of high school, failed their A-Levels or did not get accepted into university, yet are remarkably successful nevertheless.
Wildly-successful entrepreneur, Sir Richard Branson, dropped out of school at 15. In 2017, Forbes estimated his net worth to be about $5 billion (USD).
Founder of Tumblr, David Karp, dropped out of high school at 15. He founded Tumblr in 2007 and sold the company to Yahoo for $1.1 billion (USD) in 2013.
Successful writer, actor and director, Quentin Tarantino, dropped out of high school at 15. At the age of 29, he released his first cult hit Reservoir Dogs which grossed $2.8 million (USD) in the United States alone.
I know him from the tender, low-fat chicken his branded grills produce, but you may know George Foreman better for his boxing success. He dropped out of high school at 15 as well, and at the age of 19 he won gold at the 1968 Mexico City Olympics in the boxing/heavyweight division.
English actress Carey Mulligan, now with a net worth of $15 million (USD), did not get into the three London drama schools she applied to at the age of 17. She talked her way into getting an audition for her first film Pride & Prejudice.
Harry Potter novelist, J.K. Rowling, took the entrance exams for Oxford University, but was not accepted. She did get into the University of Exeter, although one of her lecturers recalls how Rowling “…gave the appearance of doing what was necessary”. However, Rowling says she simply preferred to listen to The Smiths, and read.
Sometimes it just goes to show that if you really want something, you can do it no matter what your grade says. Sometimes it’s simply who you know, not what you know!
The school holidays are basically here! No more uniform, no more homework, no more boredom because…
Now that you can relax and have fun in the sun, get your phones and cameras out and get snapping! Send friends and family your postcards to show off where you are and what you’re doing.
?? Sunny getaways and day trips are on the cards for this summer! ??
Summer camp season is upon us! While your little one is having the time of their lives, remind them you’re thinking of them by sending a personalised postcard.
You could even send one early so they have a warm welcome card to put a smile on their face during this fun – but perhaps slightly scary – adventure. Personalise your card with funny stories, photos and words of advice and we’ll send it straight to camp.
Then upon their return, make a souvenir card to remember their amazing time away!
