Polaposts turn regular photos into mailable Polaroid prints. We were part of a team that founded Snailmailme.com a couple years ago – a defunct startup that wanted to bring back the novelty of using mail via a web app. Although the sheer excitement of getting mail that is personalized for you is still a thrill, Snailmailme.com wasn’t aware of how the digital landscape would change and couldn’t reflect a product that kept up with social media and free application usage. Polaposts on the other hand succeeds at creating a fun, personalized and economical solution to sending photos via mail.
In today’s: Tumblr, Facebook, Flickr, Instagram and everything-else photo sharing world, seeing and getting a digital photo message isn’t as much fun as receiving a real-life and tangible piece of mail that is a photograph specifically for you and you only. Polapost frames are that heartfelt message sending device that you can actually hold, touch, feel and personalize.
Polaposts fit your pictures snuggly into an envelope with a 3 x 3 window giving your photo a fashionably sweet frame as a photo sleeve, while a built in seal keeps your photo from slipping out with a durable plastic protector. The surface of the product also allows for writing your personalized message.
“Just snip your photos to fit, slip ’em inside then send them on their way. Instant happy! Once received, your Polapost shows all the charming wear and tear of a well-traveled friend with stories to tell.”
