Creative holiday greetings with your own postcard

Even if it is not yet foreseeable when we will be able to start our next holiday trip. The next vacation is sure to come. And what could be better than making friends at home happy with a holiday card?

There are now two ways to do this:

The classic way

At some point – usually a few days before the end of your holiday – you pull yourself together and go hunting for suitable card motifs in the local souvenir shop. This is often difficult and you have to visit one or the other shop until you have all the cards together. Now buy the stamps and then hope for two or three hours of rainy weather so that you feel like writing each card by hand and sending it on its way. In most cases, the cards then arrive at friends and relatives with a long time delay. By then, the recovery is often already over.

The Modern Way – The Map Paradise App

An alternative to the classic way shown is to use the free app of the online platform Karten-Paradies. With this app, it is possible to design and send the holiday greeting postcard yourself within a few minutes. The own photos give the card a much more personal touch than the standard cards from the souvenir shop. Even better if you are in the photos yourself. On the beach, in front of a famous attraction or at the top of the mountain.

How does the creation of the postcard work?

In the first step, download the app from Google Play or Apple Store . You then have the option of choosing from a variety of design templates and inserting your own image motifs directly from your smartphone. Of course, don’t forget the classic holiday greetings and enter the address of the recipient.

After the card is finished, you give it on your journey. And here comes one of the great advantages of the offer of Karten-Paradies. The card is printed and shipped within minutes. This way, your friends and relatives will often find the card directly in their mailbox the next day.

After registration, the creation and dispatch of the first holiday card is free of charge – ideal for trying out.

Payment methods

Five convenient solutions are available as payment options:

  • PayPal
    Pay easily and quickly via the PayPal account
  • Invoice
    Conveniently pays within 14 days of invoicing. So that’s still enough if you pay the bill right after your vacation
  • Direct debit
  • Credit card
  • Cash on delivery (which, however, should be a bit difficult on vacation – more suitable for the further card offer, see below)

Paper types for postcard creation

There are five different types of paper available for your holiday cards:

  • 300 g art print
  • 250g Fine Paper Bechamel
