Do you love photography? Do you use one of the cool photo apps like instagram or hipstamatic to take funky, square photos on your iPhone? Do you wish you could get equally cool prints of those photos? Now you can with PostalPix!!


PostalPix is an iPhone app that lets you order prints of your iPhone photos. They mail premium prints directly to your home. To download the app, just search "PostalPix" in the App Store or  follow this link.

Ordering prints is as easy as selecting your desired size, picking photos from your camera roll, and checking out with a credit card or Paypal. Here's a list of the print formats PostalPix offers.

For this swap, you'll be sending three (3) 4x4 or 4x6 prints to each of your two (2) partners, for a total of six (6) prints sent. The theme and style of the photos is totally up to you!

You can either (1) have PostalPix mail the prints to your own home then repackage them and mail them on to your partners, or (2) mail prints to your partners directly from the app. Here's how to send to an address other than your own  from the app:

1) When creating an account, enter your partner's address


1) After creating your account, go to the "More" tab
2) Tap "Account"
3) Tap "Edit" and change "shipping information" to your partner's address

PostalPix is sponsoring this swap and giving all participants 25% off their photo print orders. I will send an email to all participants after the sign up deadline with the coupon code for the discount.

Details: New and experienced swappers with over a 4.8 rating are welcome. However, anyone with recent low ratings or questionable behavior will be removed. This swap is for US residents only because PostalPix can currently only ship to US addresses. Also, you must have an iPhone in order to be able to use the PostalPix app.

Hi all - Thank you all for joining!! I am going to look over participants and assign partners tonight. Let me know if you have any questions.

racheljohnson 10/17/2011 #

Ok - partners have been assigned for this swap. There are a bunch of new users who learned about this swap through PostalPix and I am thrilled to have them on the 'bot! Of course, I will ANGEL this swap if necessary. Also, I'll be sending out an email shortly with the 25% discount code. Thanks for swapping!

racheljohnson 10/18/2011 #

The email with the discount code just went out. Let me know if you don't receive it. Also, I extended the mail deadline to November 11th.

Hi @shiftintomanic - This swap already closed, so you can't get in on it this time. However, hopefully we will host similar swaps in the future!

I am off to mail my photos now! :)

I just received my first set of photos from @pinkfootballs I must say, I was pretty excited to receive them. Awesome prints!

racheljohnson 11/17/2011 #

Hi all, I hope you have been receiving some great photos! Once all rating options (1 and 3) become available, let me know (via message or email) if you have not received a package. Once you have rated your partner honestly with a 1, I will send out an awesome angel pack!
