Remember the simple joy and excitement of a post card? You’d be sorting through the bills, brochures and junk mail – and there it was. A small greeting from a faraway place.
The first week of May is National Postcard Week. It’s seven days to relive the thrills of sending and receiving post cards.
Post Cards Say I’m Thinking Of You
A post card is a reminder that someone special is thinking of you. And sending one is a way to tell someone else that you’re thinking of them.
Post cards are usually sent by people who are on vacation. People visiting majestic places they’ve probably never been to before and may never see again. But still, they took the time to stop what they were doing and write you a friendly note.
That’s why receiving a post card means so much. Sure, the pictures are pretty and it’s fun to receive something from another state, another land, another country. But what matters is someone took the time to send it to you.
Surprise Family And Friends With Post Cards
The best post cards were always the ones you never expected. Those little notes of joy that arrive out of the blue. To celebrate National Post Card Week, why not surprise your family and friends with a post card? It’s a small, but effective way to bring some happiness into anyone’s day.
You don’t have to be on vacation to send a card. Pick one up at a local store and include a personal note. Show someone that you’re thinking of them. You can even make your own…
Make Your Own Post Cards
Feeling creative? Get some thick stock paper and build a card. Add your own drawing, a short note and send it on its way. You can also turn a photo into a post card, or make one on your computer.
The minimum size for a standard post card is 3-1/2×5-1/2 inches, and the maximum is 4-1/4×6 inches. Postage is just $.29.
Creating your own cards adds even more of a personal touch to a surprise that will be cherished for life. Relive the joys of post cards the first week of May. Send one to all the important people in your world, and give your loved ones a smile.
Enjoy National Post Card Week, and thank you for reading the PeopleFinders people search blog.
