Instagram for the Men and Women in Prison

There are over 2.3 million people in jails, prison, youth detention centers, and immigration facilities in the US. This is the largest prison population in the world, and yet there is no Internet access. No Facebook. No Instagram. No free Email. No Snapchat. No Text Messages. Just mail..that's it; only old-school snail mail.

Until now!

Flikshop allows its user to take a photo, add a quick note, and click "Send" just as they would on Facebook or Instagram. We take this personal "Smile" and mail a real tangible photo postcard to their loved one in prison. We print each postcard on a 4"x6" full-color high-quality paper, and even include the postage.

The undefeated Internet calls us the "Instagram for Prisons", as we have found perfect product market fit for over 70 million people and are penetrating a $4 Billion "prison communications" market. Our claim to fame roots from us being more thoughtful about the families that are fighting through the hardest times of their lives.
