How It Works

Yes, it really is that simple!

Choosing the perfect postcard and hunting down local stamps and a post box while traveling can be a fiddly business. Nowadays we tend to rely on social media instead – the number of postcards being sent has fallen by 75% over the past 25 years, and the nostalgic excitement of receiving a colourful postcard in the post just isn’t so common anymore. In fact, the average household receives just 10 pieces of personal mail per year!

We think this is a shame, so we came up with a plan to keep the humble postcard alive. Caardvark is a platform that aims to make sending postcards a breeze: no clunky apps to install, no registration and no need to set aside half a day of your trip to find a mailbox. Just start chatting to Caardvark in Facebook Messenger - choose a photo from your camera roll, write a message and then enter your recipient's name and address. After paying for your card using PayPal, we’ll print your card and mail it anywhere in the world, with your photo right on the front!

It is our mission to reconnect the world on a more personal level and do so while being environmentally conscious. That’s why we only use FSC-certified paper from sustainable forests.
