Looking for a way to connect with you grandparents on Facebook? Thanks to PostEgram, a Detroit-based startup, it may now be easier than ever to keep your grandparents and other loved ones up to speed on your Facebook activity the old fashion way. PostEgram automatically prints and mails your Facebook status and photos, helping users stay in touch with family members who do not have a computer or Internet access – such as older parents, grandparents or loved ones in the military. Users can simply pick the Facebook person whose digital content they need to share, and PostEgram will print it in a newsletter and mail it to anyone in the world.

Check out the PostEgram demo video (below).

Here is a sample PostEgram newsletter (below).

PostEgram takes what NutshellMail is doing via email and brings it to an offline audience that may not even check (or have) email. PostEgram is the creation of Judy Davids and Ken Bloink, two entrepreneurs with backgrounds in entertainment, the print industry and web development.   They constructed their business model through Bizdom U, the non-profit Detroit-based entrepreneurial boot camp founded by Dan Gilbert, Founder and Chairman of Quicken Loans. PostEgram will be a showcased startup at TECH cocktail Detroit.
