Postcards are a wonderful way to let family and friends know you are thinking of them. They are quick and easy. You don't have to worry about finding the right envelope and licking it closed. You don't have to worry about what to write because you have limited space. You write your message and the address on the same side. In addition, postcard postage is cheaper than letter postage.

Most of us associate postcards with vacations. While on vacation, we find a postcard with either a gorgeous view that would make our friends jealous or some amusing picture of scantily clad members of the opposite sex. We fill in a little message about all the fun we're having, that we wish the other person was with us, and that we can't wait to see him or her when we get back. Some people will also include the story of a fun adventure that happened on the trip.

Making the Most of Postcards

Postcards have the potential to be so much more than this, however. They can almost become the instant messaging of the snail mail world. Think about it. When you send an instant message online, you usually write a line or two. That's all you need. Now, if you combined that with people's desire to get personal letters in the mail to break up all the junk and bills, you would have a great use for postcards.

Postcards can get even more exciting when you have them custom made to your liking. You might want to put a funny picture or saying on the card. This way, whenever a friend or family member gets the card, they smile before they even read the message because they know it's from you.
