Tis’ the season to start sending your family, friends, old bosses, and coworkers holiday greeting cards. The process just got a lot simpler with an new app called Sincerely Ink, which lets you create cards on your smartphone and then sends physical cards via snail mail.
“One of the reasons we created the app is that we don’t think a text message is enough," Sincerly co-founder and CEO Matt Brezina told FoxNews.com. "If its Christmas, we think its meaningful to send something physical in the mail.”

The app for your Apple and Android devices allows you to choose a theme, just as you would at Hallmark or a drug store, but then you can personalize the card by adding a photo you have saved on your smartphone and typing in a greeting.
The process is simple: You're then prompted to choose contacts—which you already have in your smartphone. For $1.99 a card, Sincerely Ink prints and mails your cards for you. You can save 15 percent if ordering in bulk.
“Just click 'Let's Ship,' your full address book comes in, you can manually enter an address, or you can send it to any other Facebook friend who is using our app. And you don’t even need to ask them for their address,” Brezina explained.
Not only useful for sending holiday greeting cards, other special occasions include birthdays, thank you notes, weddings, birth announcements and more.
