The Adventures of the Little Postal Train is a new form of postcards with the most delightful combination of paper and digital design.
There are 25 cut-out parts in the box which offer an infinite number of possible combinations. Among these are some special ones which come alive with the help of a smartphone or a tablet.
How does it work?
1. Compose your landscape with the cut-out parts attached by the brass paper fastener.
2. Download the free application of "the postal train".
3. Surprise! The animated picture comes alive!
4. Write your message on the back of the card.
5. Put it in the envelope and send it by post!
Your friend will receive your envelope with instructions on downloading the free application and be able to see your postcard come to life!
Of course, it is a wonderful game for young and young-at-heart alike who will be enchanted by the animated landscapes!
Some technical information!
In addition to The Adventures of the Little Postal Train, it is possible to order your own personalised cards for special occasions such as weddings, birthdays, birth announcements etc.
This personalised version will happen in 3 steps:
You send me your references in terms of landscape or décor your wish to have your design based on, your preferred colors, what you wish to put in the animated images, and a message to communicate.
I will send you an animation storyboard.
At this stage, you can ask for a modification if something bothers you.
Here is an example of a personalised card created for Lilia and Diego. They will be getting married very soon and would like 100 cards to thank their guests at the end of their wedding party. These cards will be put on the dinner tables.
Who am I?
My name is Julie Stephen Chheng and I am a graphic designer. I experiment with paper, book design and new technologies to create new ways of storytelling!
How did The Adventures of the Little Postal Train start?
Each year, I make season's greetings postcards for my family and close friends.
For my card this year, I cut out all kinds of forms in fluorescent paper and made a hundred landscapes sending them to my entourage all over the world.
From this, I wanted to share these greeting cards to a larger public in adding little animated surprises!
