Are you looking for an affordable way to send Seasons Greetings to your friends and family this year? Our postcards are inexpensive to buy, can be personalized, and are less expensive to mail so they make a terrific option for you.
Long ago, postcards were the popular way of staying in touch and sending holiday greetings. I'm all for bringing back that tradition. Text messages and emails just don't seem like enough and writing out cards sometimes feels like too much. A quick hello on a postcard doesn't take much time or money and, I think, it really shows that you care.

These retro birthday postcards are a GREAT idea to keep in the house.
They're cute, affordable to buy, (and to send) and they would be super appreciated as an in-hand birthday greeting for anyone.
The design says, My best wishes for your birthday, in fun vintage style fonts. There's an illustration of a straight pin in one corner that makes it look like it's being pinned to a cork board. The design looks aged and worn giving it a delightful antique retro look.
About these postcards:
Sometimes the old ways are just better.
Text messages and social media posts are nice but if you really want to create an impact, and show you care, a postcard makes a terrific impression. And it's something they can keep and treasure always.
There's less waste too. No need for envelopes that just get tossed into the landfill.
Grab a bunch of these to keep on hand so you'll be ready for everyone's birthday this year.
Here's a fun idea for a his or hers 50th birthday party. These invites look like an audiotape, aka cassette tape, that you personalize with all of the birthday party info.
If they're turning 50, chances are they made more than a few mix tapes back in the 80's which means they'll LOVE this rad invite design.
50th Birthday Party Invitation
This is what the front looks like. The details on this are amazing. It looks do real because it's a photo image of an actual audio tape that you can easily personalize for your favorite about-to-be-fifty-year-old birthday person.
Here's a look at the flip side.
Oh what fun!
I truly think this is the BEST Christmas postcard design I have EVER seen. So unique!
It has an adorable illustrated scene straight out of the 50's.
There's a retro 1950's style cabinet television standing front and center (kind of) and you can see an old-fashioned Christmas tree in the background but THE best thing is that you can upload any photo you love and it appears to be on air on the TV.
Go ahead and click the image of the postcard to be taken to Zazzle where you can test it out with your own photos.
The hardest part about these cute Christmas postcards is deciding which picture you want to use.
There's a soft gray and white snowflake border around the image which also continues on to the back.
Order them as-is and add your own personal hand-written message to each of your friends or "customize it" to have your message printed on the back of the cards.
Sending postcard greetings saves you money on postage too!
I have always been a sucker for postcard greetings and I wish the whole world would go back to the time when postcards were our number one source for wishing friends and family good cheer for the holidays.
But these aren't just useful for personal greetings, I think these would be amazing to use by companies as well. Just think how cute they would look with your logo on the television screen, or maybe a photo of your business address or even the faces of your beautiful and trusted employees.

Adorable. Trendy. Fun!
OMG! I just came across the most adorable vintage-look Save the Date cards and I had to share them here. They look just like old-fashioned telegrams and with the growing trend towards modern-retro style, I think you'll love them as much as I do.
Aren't they fun?
The design uses tones of light and dark brown with black lettering. The typography will take you back to the days of typewritten notes and the information is shared in a very cute way to let all of your intended guests to STOP before making other plans on your big day.
