An API For Creating Personalised Postcards: is a free app that allows users to quickly and easily create their own custom-made postcards. The company provides the Stannp API that allows developers to integrate this tool into other applications. By snapping a picture or using an existing image, the user has the option to customize the image with fun effects and add the finished product to their Facebook wall, email it to a friend or have it turned into a real postcard to be posted the same day. Some of the image editing effects include: adding stickers, applying masking effects to the image, adding text and speech bubbles, red eye removal, blemish removal, crop and rotate functions and more.

The app itself is free, but if users wish to have the postcard printed and sent by mail they are charged 1 credit for UK addresses and 2 credits for foreign addresses, a credit starting at £0.99 in cost.

The Stannp API can be used to access the company's print-on-demand service using the API function calls, allowing developers to create their own applications benefiting from Stannp's print and fulfillment knowledge and experience. Developers who would like more information or to request an API key can apply via a contact form on the website.
