Why You Should Start Sending Postcards Again — Even If You're Not Traveling
Ah, the age old practice of letter writing. If you're a fan of putting pen to page, there's also a good chance you also enjoy sending postcards home whenever you travel. It might be a while before you can send postcards from far off places again, but that doesn't mean you can't keep in touch with friends and family via snail mail in the meantime, as many us remain separated by the pandemic. With that, I'm here to sing the praises of sending your loved ones postcards and greeting cards, both the artistic and the playful, whether it's to celebrate an occasion or just because. And luckily, there's no shortage of beautiful cards available to buy online.
Although the pandemic has been lonely at times, it has inspired me to send more mail. In fact, I'd say that one of the best things I've done during the pandemic is starting to write to a pen pal. These days, the excitement of opening my mailbox to find a letter from a friend or note from my pen pal brings me joy in ways I might not have appreciated pre-pandemic.
From a collection of New York City-themed greeting cards with cheeky sayings your friends near and far will love to cards that celebrate the U.S. National Parks of the West, and even a collection of vintage postcards that you can repurpose for your own use, we've found a wide variety of greeting cards and postcards that you'll want to add to your shopping cart immediately.
