It pains me that my kids, just like most digital natives, will never know the struggle or the rewards of writing and mailing a letter. If you’ve ever bought stamps, poured your heart out on paper and then checked the mailbox daily, anxiously expecting a reply, then you know what I mean. Fortunately, for us in the UAE, Emirates Post is blending new technology with an age old practice to customize Eid greetings.
Epostcard is a digital postcard application that allows you to create and send customized physical postcards. Simply download the app, which is available in the App Store (iOS) and Google Play Store (Android) and add your own photos and text. You can also include a QR code to share video content with the receiver.
Emirates Post has rolled out this service during Ramadan with the hopes that people and organizations will use it to send tailored Eid greetings to friends, family and business associates. Starting at AED 20 per postcard, the service is currently available for delivery within the UAE and will be rolled out internationally at a later date.
Enjoy creating and sharing something special. Eid Mubarak!
