Top 8 Reasons Why You Should Send a Postcard This Year

Big reasons why you should consider sending a postcard this year:

  1. They won’t easily get lost in junk mail or email
  2. The importance of a physical letter, or postcard, is still distinguished from an electronic one
  3. The value of taking the time to write on a postcard and sending it to someone
  4. Not as formal as writing a letter, but not as simplistic or casual: How many people don’t respond or even take the time to look at messages whether it’s on Facebook, text message, or e-mail nowadays? 
  5. Receiving a postcard is a really nice gesture, a nice surprise
  6. It may even invoke other people to create their own postcards and send one out themselves, causing some sort of post card pen pal chain reaction

When was the last time you sent a postcard, or even received one?

For most people, the last time they received one was in the form of an advertisement for applying to a school or some sort of promotion by a business.

But that’s definitely not the kind of postcard that we want to talk about.

The Value of A Postcard

In the digital age, people have lost sight of postcards and the intrinsic value it holds. It may seem like just a piece of paper with your picture or drawing on it, but there’s more to it than that. The people who end up receiving your post card will definitely think of you warmly.

Good Feelings Feel Good

Whether or not you celebrate Christmas, Hannukah, or any other winter/end of the year holiday, it’s nice gesture to send out a postcard to family, relatives, and friends who haven’t seen you in quite some time. Even if you don’t put your picture on it, that’s not the point. The point is that you took the time to reach out to them and they definitely will appreciate that. Don’t you think a good feeling is worth 2 minutes of your time?
