We've kept it simple for you – no creating new accounts, no printing, no buying stamps and no mailing. And you can send photos from all sorts of services. Just post 'em to Facebook and we'll take it from there.
Our "secret sauce" is an invention we affectionately refer to as the Cardtraption, which we built to turn ordinary Facebook photos into priceless postcards that have the power to make humans feel super special.
So go ahead, be silly. Be sincere. Be the one that reaches out. Whatever you do, just don't hassle with buying stamps or going to the post office. That's so '90s.
he whole idea behind Youregards was inspired by a simple question asked by our resident mad scientist: "How can I share what's happening in my life with my granny as easily as I share stuff with my Facebook friends?" As 'internet guys' we all suffered from this common conundrum. We had random Facebook friends who knew more about the events of our lives than our own parents or grandparents.
On top of that, our resident pixel-pusher and his wife – the busy parents of 3 boys ages 3 and under – wanted an easy way to send real photos to her mom that didn't involve the hassle of driving to a photo lab, or hauling all the kids to the post office to buy stamps.
We put our heads together, and the three of us – a designer, a programmer and a product guy – built Youregards as a fun, easy way to reconnect with the people who matter most in a more personal, thoughtful way. We sincerely hope you enjoy using it as much as we enjoyed building it.
