Postcard sending service Touchnote has launched personalised Christmas cards, just in time for the festive season.

The new service allows users to create their own Christmas cards, which Touchnote will then print and send to their Facebook friends via the post. The service is available online as well as via Touchnote apps for iOS and Android.

Raam Thakrar, co-founder of Touchnote, explained, “Touchnote has an extensive network of printers throughout the world meaning there’s no need to worry about the Royal Mail’s Christmas post deadline as you can create your card in the UK and have it printed and posted to a location anywhere in the world almost immediately.”

The company said its apps have now been downloaded more than 3m times, with 60% of these coming from the US.
