Gmail Sends Non-digital Christmas Cards for You

The winter holidays are just around the corner; three weeks from now we’ll be sitting next to a Christmas tree drinking hot chocolate and watching the Grinch on TV (or is it just me). By now most of you are already thinking that you should email your friends and loved ones and spread the holiday cheer. The Google developed email client Gmail is perfectly suited for this task.

So thanks to Gmail you can send a Christmas card to all your friends and loved ones – yeah, but only to those that are part of the digital, internet-centric world we live in. What about people that do not have a computer or a internet connection? You may no know this, but Gmail helps you out in this case too.

With Gmail you can send non-digital, real Christmas cards to the people you care about, people that do not have a computer and a internet connection (sounds dreadful, I know). You could of course go out, buy a card from a brick and mortar store, get some stamps and mail it. But why would you want to do this when Gmail offers to do it for you? You need only access a link, fill in a form and Google’s email client will take care of the rest.

Associate Product Marketing Manager with Google, Jason Toff, explains: “This holiday season, as a token of our appreciation to our most enthusiastic fans, we'll snail-mail a free holiday postcard on your behalf. Yes, through the mail and everything. To send a card, visit gmail.com/holidaycard. We'll only be able to send cards to US addresses and to a limited number of people (due to limited Gmail elf availability), so be sure to request one soon. And if you're headed home for the holidays, consider spending some "computer time" with loved ones who aren't as up-to-date with technology. With some luck, maybe this time next year you'll be able to email them a holiday card instead!”
