Touchnote is a mobile app for smartphones and website for sending printed, personalised postcards and greeting cards. The Android and iPhone apps and website are periodically updated with new features.

Touchnote was first launched in 2008[1] [2] ,[3] and is based in London.

Company profile[edit]

The company was founded by Raam Thakrar and Paul Burdin in 2008, and was launched to the public in November 2008.[4] The Touchnote apps and website convert users' photos into postcards and greeting cards which are printed and posted by Touchnote on behalf of the user.

Touchnote cards[edit]

The Touchnote app and website allows users to send personalised postcards and greeting cards, using their own photos. Cards are printed and posted from their print centres in the UK, USA, Germany and Australia (greeting cards are only printed and posted in the UK and USA). The postcards are 6 x 4 inch, and the greeting cards are 7 x 5 inch, printed with a gloss finish.

In 2014, the Touchnote iPhone app was updated to allow photo collage cards to be created, where the user could add multiple photos onto one card.

In March 2009, Touchnote released an API which allows other sites to integrate into their print on demand system. This includes photos from Facebook and from Picasa .[5]

Mobile applications[edit]

In May 2009, the company released an application on the Nokia OVI store [6] which allowed users to use photos on their phone to make cards. It was the first application on the OVI store which produced a physical product. The app was voted the must-have entertainment app of 2010 by Ovi users.[7]

The company first released an iPhone application in September 2009 with similar functionality.[8]

In June 2010 an Android application was released with similar functionality.

In October 2010 a Windows Phone 7 app was launched. This included additional features such as photo crop and zoom and ability for users to sign their cards.[9] The Windows Phone 7 app is no longer supported by Touchnote.
