p Do you know why I always include a postcard or two in our PostBox every month?
I love postcards! In the midst of our current downsizing move, I came across my postcard collection from when I was young. I actually thought it had been tossed in a previous move. What a blast it was to reminisce and read through them again. There were postcards from my parents, grandparents, siblings, and now-lost pen pals.
Raise your hand if you collected postcards when you were young! Raise your other hand if you still tuck them away!! And stand up tall if you still send a postcard or two when you are traveling!!!
I am an avid fan of the Postcrossing project, which Paulo Magalhaes founded in 2005 as a side project while he was a student in Portugal. Paulo loves to receive mail—postcards in particular—from friends, family, or anyone in the world. He knew others did, too, but there was no easy way to connect. That’s when he hatched the idea of an online platform.
The goal of this project is to connect people across the world through postcards, independent of country, age, gender, race, or beliefs. The idea is simple: for each postcard you send, you receive one back from a random Postcrosser from somewhere in the world.
Enjoy the journey of meeting new people through the magic of postcards!
Let’s make March Postcard Month! Can you send 5, 10, or even 30 postcards?
Did you know that just one year ago I was in the infancy stages of developing Postmark’d Studio and the snail-mail revolution? The journey has been surreal—a dream come true! My goal for 2018 is to reach subscribers in every state!
The March PostBox will ship to 21 states! Only 29 more to go! Yay!
We so appreciate your support in getting us to our goal in 2018! Spread the word about our funky, fun little snail-mail company with all the paper-lovers you know!
