image

We are so excited to have launched Poshmark on Android and want to share with our community some of our favorite Android apps to use when creating those glamorous Covershots. With so many to choose from, we chose our top three for ease of usability and variety. Can’t wait to see what gorgeous cover shots our Poshers are creating! image

1. PhotoGrid – Free 

A must-have app, PhotoGrid allows you to create collages with your photos. Modify the layout, play with the ratio of the frames, add text and clip art – this app does it all! Fun little tip – you can shake your device and the app will change the layout for you, if you can’t decide.

2. LINE camera – Free

LINE camera is another fantastic app that gives you the flexibility to play around with collage options. You can also select from a variety of filters, including ones that have the fun bokeh effect. Tap the filter to see other options for that style; in our example we chose the Party filter. Don’t forget you can also play with the intensity to make your filter full effect or faded!

3. Phonto – Free 

We know every now and then you want to add a pop of text in a fun font to add dimension to your cover shot. Vary the font, the pt. size, even the color with this great app for typefaces. Tilt words to match the direction of an item in your photo and play with the location of the text. The options are pretty much endless!

What Boxes Can Be Used to Ship Poshmark Sales

As you may know, Poshmark uses Priority Mail shipping labels for all Poshmark orders. But what boxes can you use to ship? We’re here to clear that up for you!

Priority Mail Boxes

USPS offers a line of FREE boxes and envelopes for Priority Mail customers. This packaging can be picked up at many Post Offices, but keep in mind that at some locations they may be kept behind the counter so you’ll have to ask for them. Don’t have time to go to the post office? No sweat! You can order supplies for free on USPS.com or on their free mobile app.

Your Own Packaging

If you have your own boxes or padded envelopes lying around, you are, of course, welcome to use them to ship your sales. We do caution that you are careful to cover or remove any old shipping labels, barcodes or addresses so that your package is properly delivered.

What Not to Use

USPS offers a variety of free packages for it’s different mail services. If you are using the boxes they provide, be sure you are not shipping in the boxes that are labeled ‘Express,’ ‘Flat Rate,’ or ‘Regional Rate’ as they will causes delivery delays and/or additional shipping fees.

As always, if you have questions about shipping or anything else, please feel free to reach out to our support team. We’re happy to help!

Community Q&A with @cvz15

Community darling Carol of @cvz15 talks with us about how Poshmark helped redefine her style during a special birthday, her Posh BFFs, and how she involves the entire family in the Posh process!

WHAT DOES POSHMARK MEAN TO YOU?
Poshmark started out of curiosity because I wanted to redefine my wardrobe due to a milestone birthday. Now I spend about 10-12 hours a day in the app, sharing other people’s listings and working on my own closet. The social networking aspect, getting to develop relationships and making connections with the outside world, is great. My Poshmark BFFs are @wenrella and @gordomom.

WHICH POSHMARKERS DO YOU LOOK TO FOR INSPIRATION?

@gordomom helped make me addicted to Poshmark; I think she has great cover shots. @styleluxe4less is very welcoming and informative when it comes to new users. @manymurrays is great at sharing listings a lot.
 
DEFINE YOUR CLOSET’S PERSONAL STYLE?
love color, peacock and classic style and Kate SpadeI am a former fashion flop turned suburbanite fashionista with a hint of glitz and glamour.
WHAT MAKES YOUR COVERSHOTS SPECIAL?
My family has been a huge help. My husband bought me a portable photo booth to snap photos of my jewelry. My daughter will model necklaces and earrings for me. I don’t like to take the same types of shots because it can get redundant.
