we are glad to greet you on our site. Here you can buy beautiful post and greeting cards of all kinds, useful and handy rubber stamps, bizarre postage stamps, and first day if issue covers. These and many other things are waiting for you.
All the postcards sold at our shop fit for postcrossing. Made with love they'll please you, we are sure.
The postcards measuring appr. 4 inches (103 mm) high × 6 inches (146 mm) long are mostly sold at our shop. However, some postcards deviate from this.
The back of the postcards is divided into an address section (5 lines) and extended space for stamp (as artistamps have bigger dimensions than regular ones). Authorship info is also printed on some of the cards.
We also offer postcards printed at other famous publishing houses. You can see product characteristics, back design samples and contents of card sets by clicking on the name of the set or a single postcard.
We want to emphasize that the postcards we sell are appr. 4 inches (103 mm) high × 6 inches (146 mm) long.
What is Postcrossing?
The goal of this project is to allow people to receive postcards from all over the world, for free. Well, almost free! The main idea is that: if you send a postcard, you will receive at least one back from a random Postcrosser from somewhere in the world.
Why? Because, like the author (Paulo Magalhães), there are lots of people who like to receive real mail.
The element of surprise of receiving postcards from different places in the world (many of which you probably have never heard of) can turn your mailbox into a box of surprises - and who wouldn't like that?
First, the short version:
- request an address from the website
- mail the postcard to the address
- wait to receive a postcard
- register the received postcard in the system
The first step is to request to send a postcard. The website will display (and send you an e-mail) with the address of another member and a Postcard ID (e.g.: US-786). You then mail a postcard to that member.
The member receives the postcard and registers it using the Postcard ID that is on the postcard. At this point, you are eligible to receive a postcard from another user. You are now in line for the next person that requests to send a postcard. Wherethepostcardcomesfromis a surprise!
You can have up to 5 postcards traveling at any single time. Every time one of the postcards you send is registered, you can request another address. The number of postcards allowed to travel at any single time goes up the more postcards you send!
