We'll print out the card, put it on envelope, affix postage and mail it for you and what's really cool is if you mail it to an address in the United States, we'll add the US Postal services intelligent mail bar code right down at the bottom and that allows us to send you a post notification the day it's delivered.

That's for the card, the envelope, the postage mailing and everything and it's $4.99 if you mail it anywhere in the world. Cards will be a free download on October 12.
