ONCE UPON A COCKTAIL...
Drunk Postcards was born out of a slip of the tongue. After a couple of cocktails, a discussion of the annoyance of junk mail morphed into longing for more drunk mail. We were in the habit of texting our out-of-town friends when we missed them so we thought, why not send a postcard to bring them into the fun?
Drunk Postcards began making their way across the country from friend to friend expressing important sentiments like "I love you" and drunk sentiments like "I think I lost my wallet." Drunk Postcards is our way of creating postcards that reflect the spontaneous nature of our handwritten messages and also to share our postcarding revolution with the world.
Drunkpostcards.com is the place to buy funny postcards that are pre-stamped and ready-to-mail anywhere in the USA. Free shipping too! Our philosophy is simple, we want more people sending more postcards, so we've made it as easy as possible. It's fun and nostalgic, meaningful and interesting, yet not many people are doing it.
We'd like to change that.
Our campaign hopes to raise funds so that we can not only continue to exist, but advance our philosophy. We love doing this because we know what it feels like to be surprised by an unexpected postcard in the mail. We want other people to have that experience and share it with their friends.
Your support in any capacity helps us build momentum, but more than anything it validates what we're doing and that means a lot. We should mention at this point that you don't have to be drunk to send a Drunk Postcard. Think drunk in spirit, loose and cheery.
REAL WORLD POSTCARDS AND THE INTERNETS.
We understand the power of social media and it's important to note that we're not in competition with it or technology. We embrace them and have integrated them into our business. We rely on social media sites like Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and Pinterest to increase brand awareness and strengthen brand identity.
Likewise, our only current sales channel exists on the website, drunkpostcards.com. We're using technology and social media not only to promote, but also preserve these real world interactions - bridging the gap between physical and virtual.
We're enabling people to be more authentic, with more genuine interactions, and at the same time encouraging them to share their experiences online.
We're not trying to change the world, but we are trying to establish ourselves as a relevant company in a re-emerging market for real-world personal communication.
WHY WE NEED YOUR HELP.
Since we've already started the business and purchased the initial inventory out-of-pocket, we've covered the majority of the upfront costs.
That's not what this is about.
We need your help to introduce our philosophy of sending postcards to your network. We have maxed out our social circles and our bank accounts, but we have so much farther to go.
Your contribution to this campaign will take care of our website operating costs for an entire year. It will also allow us to print 20 new postcard designs in bulk so that we can make them available for sale online. You're helping us to advertise on relevant blogs and popular culture websites so more people know who we are and can participate in what we're doing. We're not just asking for a handout though.
AS A CONTRIBUTOR, YOU HAZ PERKS!
