My friends are pretty lucky – so they tell me – because my love for stationery brings them many sentimental and often uplifting surprises in the form of letters, cards and post cards. If you happen to love receiving fan mail check out this new project I learned about from one of our customers: Postcrossing.
Enjoy – Janiece
“What is Postcrossing?” you ask.
Postcrossing is the coolest thing since sliced bread, in my opinion. The project’s goal is to allow you to receive postcards from all over the world, for free. Well, almost free! (international postage is required). The main idea is this: if you send a postcard, you will receive at least one back from a random Postcrosser from somewhere in the world.
Take a look at the collection of photos I’ve taken of the postcards I have and will be sending out. I’m so excited to see what comes of this! (below)
I picked out a few postcards from here in the store (see photos). We have a fabulous collection of Portland Landscape and Bridges that are also locally made by Red Bat Press and New Found Image. I have sent out 4 this week to the Netherlands, The Republic of Belarus and Russian Federation. Each of these people are going to look into their mail boxes and be surprised to find a special note from me. People who wouldn’t otherwise know about Portland, will know a little bit from an “insider” like me. And, in turn, I will learn a little bit about others who are far-far-away. The added bonus: I will expand my post card and stamp collection! Where are my stamps??
