Date founded: 2007
Founders: Raam Thakrar and Paul Burdin
In an era when moments and memories are shared quickly and impersonally via Facebook or Instagram, Touchnote has seized on people’s desire for more meaningful one-to-one communication. Understanding that people rarely receive something in the post that makes them smile anymore, the business has sent over five million cards to date – two million of those being in the last year. In 2012, Touchnote was chosen to partner Samsung during the London Olympics, offering people the chance to order postcards and send them for free: a proud moment for Thakrar and Burdin. The company’s postcards have been sent to over 200 countries, and the app – the firm’s primary platform for engaging customers – is available for iPhone. iPad and Android, frequently featuring and trending on Apple’s App Store. Combining the traditional fun of receiving a real postcard or greetings card with the convenience provided by the digital era, Toucnote’s simple concept and easy-to-use app continues to be the reason for its success.
