Make Your Own Eid Postcards: A Touchnote Review

Touchnote Eid Campaign

A few weeks ago I shared information about the Touchnote Eid campaign. I was one of several bloggers selected to participate in Touchnote’s firstMuslim Eid Challenge. Just to recap, from October 13 until Eid-al-Adha (November 6, 2011), Touchnote and American Muslim Mom challenged readers to show just how creative they could get using Touchnote to send personalized Eid postcards by mail to family and friends. Participants would get a free post card sample, and a chance to win a $100 Visa Gift Card.

I tried it for myself. Although I do quite a few things online, I don’t consider myself all that technically gifted. I wondered just how easy it would be for someone with zero technical and design skills to create her own post card. Thankfully it was. With just a few simple clicks of my mouse, I was able to create a very simple, not to mention adorable, postcard and quickly send them off to my mailing list. My in laws are constantly begging us for pictures of the kids, so you can imagine how excited they were to receive our customized post cards!

My only issue (a very minor one) – I couldn’t use certain images because they weren’t large enough (images must be larger than 288 pixels), but when it comes to being user friendly, fast and convenient, Touchnote rocks! Here’s one of the post cards I designed:
