30 Things You Can Write on Your Postcard | Postcrossing


I love Postcrossing. The excitement of getting a new postcard from a far-off country still makes me giddy. However, sending postcards can be a little bit annoying, especially if you've been writing the same old thing on every postcard you send out.
I love making my postcards unique and I hate getting a postcard that just says "Happy Postcrossing!"
Sometimes I just want to leave those cards and not register them out of spite, but since I know they've taken the time to mail it out, I register it anyway.

If you've never heard of Postcrossing, it's a website that allows you to send and receive postcards from people all over the world! I've received postcards from Russia, Japan, Thailand, England, America and even postcards from Malaysia. Sign up is free and you can start sending out postcards immediately!

Now, if you're somewhat of a veteran, I'm sure some of you can relate to the problem of writing something new and unique on every postcard you send out.

I know that the space available on a postcard is limited so, I have a list of 30 things you can include on your postcards to make them just a little more special!

  1. Write about your day
  2. What inspires you 
  3. Describe the weather or the season

There's definitely a lot more things you can include on your postcards but I decided to list some of my favourites. Recently, I've started to paint some illustrations with watercolour on my postcards to make them stand out. Plus, they help me improve my art. haha

If you aren't signed up with Postcrossing, why not grab some postcards today and get started?
