    Hello Postable I am curious if this is available for countries out of the U.S. if so which countries do you serve? By the way, I love your idea. =)

      Yup. Anyone can use the site to send cards. Just keep in mind the cards are mailed from the US so international stamps will need to be used for cards mailed outside the US and delivery time may be longer than domestic.

      Viva la snail mail!
