Custom Postcard Ideas and Giveaway


I am a postcard junkie. I love receiving them (hint to all my traveling friends!) and I love sending them. It's cheaper to send a postcard, it offers an avenue for creative brevity, and it's simple. I've sent postcards for Christmas since Brandon was a baby, because I can share the message of Christmas Hope with everyone that touches the postcard, not just the recipient.

So, that being said, I'm tickled about's custom postcards. With sizes ranging from 4"x6" all the way up to 6"x11", or even custom sizes, the possibilities are just about endless when it comes to postcards.

"Like what?" you say. "Aren't postcards just for 'Wish you were here' messages?"

Make that a resounding "No!"[caption id="attachment_2803" align="alignright" width="300" caption="What's not to love?"]



Check out these ideas:

  • Advertising - spread the word about your Etsy or eBay store

  • Invitations - perfect for block parties, premiers, book signings (Shawna!), or community events

  • Greetings - plenty of Christmas greetings for friends, family, church members, and teachers without the exorbitant cost

  • Calling Cards - stand out with a non-standard card!

  • Identification - car rider/bus rider tags for schools, luggage tags for travelers, or book plates

  • Encouragement Cards - keep encouragement with you and share it everywhere with little notes of happy offers custom greeting cards, brochures, and posters, as well. And that's all fine and good. But that's not what makes them awesome.

What makes them awesome as that they're giving 200 custom postcards to one 3Stairs reader!
