Post cards are a great way to let people know how you are doing and what you are up to when you are away from home. However, there are many other times when you might send a postcard to someone.
Postcards have their distinct advantages over other types of greetings like greeting cards and personal letters. First, they are shorter, and take less time out of your busy schedule or fun filled vacation to prepare and send off. Second, the cost of a postcard is minimal compared to the cost of a greeting card or special stationary. Finally, postcards are handy because they cost less in postage to mail to your loved ones.
Almost anything can be a postcard. You can create a postcard out of a regular 5″ X 7″ index card. Simply draw a line through half of the back of the card, and write the name and address you would like the post card to go to. Then, on the other half, you can write your message. This is an ideal way to send post cards, because you can write on the back of the index card if you run out of room. Simply stick the stamp on the corner, and mail!
You can send a postcard from anywhere in the world while you are traveling for business or on vacation with your family. Postcards are also a great way to stay in touch while on a honeymoon, because you don’t have to take time away from your new spouse to chit chat on the phone or write a lengthy letter. By sending a postcard, you valuable time is spent with your new husband or wife, and your friends and family back home still know you are doing alright and you’re still alive.
Post cards can be sent at any time, from anywhere. If you just want to let someone know that you have been busy and would like to get together for dinner sometime, you can send them a postcard. You could also send them an online postcard if you are really pressed for time.
Post cards also make great invitations. Not only are they fun, brief, and to the point, they cost less to send. This can be a great advantage if you are having dinner parties often, or if you are planning a wedding, second wedding, anniversary party, family reunion, or vow renewal ceremony. These events can often involve hundreds of people, and sending post cards is quicker, cheaper and less time consuming than invitations.
One advantage to using post cards as invitations is that you can print the postcards on your computer. Simply obtain a free template from the internet, and enter your event information on one side. Then you can print the post card invitations. Use labels and a word processor to create address labels for the to and from sections of the postcard. Stick on the labels, fix on a stamp, and you’re ready to go!
As you can see, post cards carry many advantages, and can be used in many more instances than many people believe. Buy a batch of post cards and send them out to your friends and family today!
