The Timed Postcard

Here's a fascinating postcard concept — one that literally counts the days from mailing to delivery! Created by Tel Aviv-based designers Tal Mor and Shlomi Azulayut of dag-designlab, the postcard timer is set by the sender just before being posted. When the recipient receives it, they stop the timer — and the exact length of time it took the postcard to travel is preserved. Such a fun idea. More here.

Thanks so much to lovely BPS member Shlomit for sending me the link!

That is pretty cool. It would be interesting to know how long it takes, especially if the postcard is sent overseas.
