Five Reasons Why Postcards Are Worth It

Who says the age of postcards is dead?

Writing postcards has now been a part of our lives for nearly two centuries. While many thought the advent of new technologies would replace the role of postcards, they still hold the same meaningful place in human society.

Be it Christmas, valentine’s, birthdays, or promotions, a personalized postcard with a thoughtful message is a hit with people of all ages and generations.

Thanks to digitization, you can now send a customized post card to your loved ones with just a click of a mouse.

If you are still debating whether or not postcards are worth it, here’s a list of five reasons to help you make a clear decision.

Personal Touch

Unlike a forwarded email or text, postcards add a personal touch to any message.

From selecting a design befitting the occasion to drafting a special message, a postcard involves your effort and reflects that you care. This investment of time and energy adds meaning to the postcard and makes your loved ones feel special.


Gone are the days when you had to wait for hours and rush to the post office to send postcards. Thanks to technology, various apps and websites allow you to send postcards across the globe from the comfort of your home.

Thus, all you now need is an internet connection and some spare time to draft the sweetest message for the angels in your life.


Postcards are one of the most affordable souvenirs for your loved ones.

Whether designing one yourself or customizing it online, a post card ensures not to burn a hole in your pocket and makes for a memorable gift.

Once you add some personal images and a sweet note, it is possible to send a postcard from anywhere in the world under budget.

Looks Hip

There’s no denying the fact that postcards are still as trendy and hip as ever. From the latest designs to customizable options, a postcard is the best way to send a personalized message to your friends and family.

Furthermore, your loved ones can print and frame a postcard to grace the walls of their living rooms. Thus, making it a meaningful and memorable gift.

Lasts a Lifetime

One of the great benefits of sending a post card is it lasts a lifetime. Since online files or messages need to be on a cloud, there’s a higher risk of technical glitches or accidental erasure.

However, postcards are tangible messages that can be saved for hundreds of years and passed on from generation to generation.
