[itunes link=”http://itunes.apple.com/us/app/instagram/id389801252?mt=8&uo=4″ title=”instagram” text=”Instagram”] is a slick app which lets you have some fun with your pictures by adding filters, and sharing photos with your friends on Twitter, Flickr, Facebook, and other social networks. But you might find yourself wanting a simple way to share some of those images with folks who aren’t quite so technologically savvy — parents and grandparents, for example.

After all, some of your Instagram images are probably holiday snaps that would make excellent, old-school postcards. Getting those digital images onto cardstock and hoofing it to the Post Office can be a real pain, though. Wouldn’t it be great if someone offered an app which could take care of the heavy lifting?

Postagram offers a simple solution.

They’ll print and mail your Instagram pics for $1.99 — not a bad price at all, but it’s an even better deal at the $0.99 introductory price. Just choose a photo, personalize your message, and add your recipient’s mailing information and Postagram takes care of the rest. The [itunes link=”http://itunes.apple.com/us/app/postagram/id429264904?mt=8&uo=4″ title=”postagram” text=”Postagram app “]itself is totally free, and you can find it in the App Store.

New users will even get to send one Postagram for free, but hurry — the offer is only good for the first 24 hours.
