I truly need mired information on how postagram works and cost!!!
With Loving Thoughts. Bxxxxx!!!
Bxxxxx, I'll be happy to help... The very best way to use PostaGram.com is to create a PostaGram® Address for the person you wish to send a card. Then simply send a "photo" with message to that email address. That's it .... No app to upload and install just use your text messaging or email to send a photo and message via the PostaGram Email processor. We'll print the postcard, apply postage and mail via US Postal System. Try it... Make sure to create a PostaGram® Address for the person you wish to "receive" the postcard. Create as many as you need for different persons. Then use them to send cards.
Can't get any simpler than that.
Cards are prepaid at the rate of 24 cards for $20, 12 cards for $10, 6 cards for $5 or 1 card for $1.
I'll be happy to help.

Jxxxx, I wish to have you try our new "unreal simple" method to send a real paper postcard via US Postal Service. I'm going to create a PostaGram® Address for you however you may create as many as you wish. Simply send via text message or email from any device a photo and message to the PostaGram® Address. That's it! Simple! I'll provide this card free for you to see how it works and I know you will tell your friends how easy it is.
How to create a PostaGram Account
Ixxxxx, Just fill in the form on the home page to create a PostaGram® Address for the Name and Street Address for the postcard delivery. Make sure to fill in your email address so we know which account to bill for cards. Then simply text or email a photo and message to the created PostaGram® Address. A card will be created and billed to the sending party if they have an account, or the balance on the PostaGram® Address if any, or the account which created the PostaGram® Address. So you use your account as it is now to Login and Buy cards then give out to family the PostaGram® Address for them to send photos. They may use any device, computer, ipad, iphone, cell, anything to send in the photo and message. You simply tell them to send a text or email a photo to the PostaGram® Address as if it was going to be read on a computer, however it will be composed into a postcard and mailed via US Postal System to the Street Address assigned for that PostaGram® Address. This is so simple that it's actually very difficult to explain to most people. I'll be very happy to help you or your family in any way.

What is a PostaGram® Address
A PostaGram® Address is a normal email address that has a special function or process. It is used to deliver a photo and message to our postcard processor to create a real paper printed postcard which is placed into the US Postal System for street delivery. You may create a PostaGram® Address for any person's Name and Street address to deliver a postcard. No login, password, upload, install, app, download, web site, special device or anything is further required to use a PostaGram® Address to send a real paper postcard. Just email a photo and message to the PostaGram® Address. It's really that simple.
How do I pay for a postcard?
You may fund postcards in two ways.
1. Join, Login and Buy postcards.
That places a postcard balance on your account to pay for cards you compose on the website or send via a PostaGram® Address.
2. Pay funds for a specific PostaGram® Address.
That places a postcard balance on a PostaGram® Address for anyone knowing the PostaGram® Address to use. You may provide for family and friends to send postcards to any Name and street address. Say your Mother is in an assisted living facility and you create a PostaGram® Address with her name, facility and street address. You post funds to that PostaGram® Address card balance. Anyone sending a photo and message to that PostaGram® Address will have their card paid for.
What is a TAG
A TAG is the first part of a PostaGram® Address as in joe123 @postagram.com The joe123 part is the TAG. The TAG points to a street address for delivery of the postcard. You may make up as many TAG as you need to send postcards. When you send a photo and message to a TAG @PostaGram.com a postcard is composed and mailed out. Three levels of billing exist. If the TAG has a balance it is billed. If the TAG has no balance then the sending account is billed. If the sender has no balance then the creator account of the TAG is billed. If the creator account has no balance then we send a notice to the sending party to fund the TAG or their account to print and apply postage to the postcard. You may test this by sending a photo to sample123 @PostaGram.com or dwayne300 @postagram.com. Hope this helped a bit.
How does advanced TAG addresses work?
When typing in the Name for an TAG address use the term NAME which will be replaced with the name portion of the email delivery address. Example, If the Tag is tsl426 @PostaGram.com
Tampa Senior Living
426 Costal Dr
Tampa FL 31111
Then a photo send to "Aunt Bunny Adams room B6" <tsl426 @postagram.com> would address to
Aunt Bunny Adams room B6
Tampa Senior Living
426 Costal Dr
Tampa FL 31111
So a facility would have one TAG address and any person in that facility could have postcards delivered.

I can't login to the app
Jxxx, Another group is using our trade name PostaGram without our permission for an iphone app (Sincerely.com and postagramapp.com) We are separate companies. They print a 3x3 inch pop-out photo postcard and we print a full 4x6 inch photo postcard with all the message characters you wish to type. We have been PostaGram.com since 1999 and send thousands of cards out to summer camps all over the country this time of year. We place a TM on our PostaGram Logo and Sincerely.com does not. They said they would re-brand however they simply sold the site to Provide out of San Diego and continue to use our trade name for the app. Once you get to know our system you'll find it's easy to use. We have a "unreal simple" way to send a postcard from your iphone. Just text or email out a photo and message. That's all you do to send a card. Create a PostaGram® Address for the Name and Address you wish and start sending cards.
Let me know if you need further.
