Hazel Mail (Reviewed: Nov 2011) is a slick new service that updates the “old style” process of sending postcards by using the Internet rather than sending a physical paper postcard. Simply bring up their website, www.hazelmail.com and upload one of your travel photos, write your short letter, and fill in the address information. This costs merely $1.50 to send to most locations in the world. For the time it takes to track down a postcard in a foreign country, write it by hand, acquire stamps and find a post office, this service is well worth the reasonable cost.
Hazel Mail cuts down on costs and keeps this an environmentally friendly service by contracting with printers in various regions of the world so that the postcards are sent locally. During a recent trip to Hawaii, within several minutes we had fired off postcards to friends back in the states as well as International destinations. Its that easy!
