Yeah, yeah, yeah, I know that I’m supposed to jot off a thank you note before the wrapping paper hits the ground, but I usually forget. Or worse, I don’t and it just nags at me. Solution: a great instant card iPhone app that looks more fantastic than any we’ve seen before.
The Red Stamp app hails from one of our long-time favorite online card shops, Red Stamp so it’s not surprising that the designs aren’t secondary to the technology.
They have a stylish gallery of design templates and you can customize
the message to suit the situation. From “Thanks for fish-sitting,” to a
sweet love note just because. Although in truth some of the pre-written
messages (done by etiquette experts) were far better than anything I
could come up with.
Me, not being an etiquette expert.
Now what I think is especially cool about this app is that you can
easily pop in photos–like say your child wearing the hand-knit sweater
he received for his birthday–and then just email it, post it on Twitter
or Facebook, or send it in an instant message to the gift giver.
Or, for you traditionalists out there, you can even have Red Stamp print
out and mail a high quality postcard for $1.29; smart when you’re on
the road and realize shoot…you forgot your niece’s birthday in two
The Red Stamp app from Red Stamp Cards is .99¢ and is available for iPhone, iTouch, and iPad at the iTunes store.**Edited to add 3/26: For a limited time, the Red Stamp app will be totally free! Enjoy!
