Postcards

I like to pick travel postcards up from convenience stores, but you can also make your own online with your own photos, which adds such a nice personal touch.  The bonus with postcards is that they cost less to mail (currently 29 cents versus 44), and they are usually cheaper than regular greeting cards.

Picnik offers this service for $.99-1.24 per card, depending on the size you choose.

Snapfish will make postcards with your photos for as low as $.75 a card.

Zazzle postcards start at $.95 each, but you can get a discount if you buy more than one. This would be good if you want to make a bunch of the same photo.

If you like DIY, here’s a tutorial on making your own postcards for about thirty cents each. Can’t beat that!

If you would like to help spread the word with some free Postcard Project postcards, send your address and the number of postcards you want to vraklis@yahoo.com.


Greeting Cards

If you send a lot of cards, you know too well how expensive it can become.  My favorite place to buy cards is Dollar Tree, where they are 2/$1 for “Tender Thoughts” greeting cards and $1 each for “American Greetings” cards that are marked much higher, saving you up to $3.  I also like Dollar General, which also has cheap generic cards, and name brand cards at a steep discount.

Two places that offer half price name brand greeting cards, if you have them in your area, are Party City and Big Lots!.

Here are some of the cards I’ve gotten at Dollar Tree.  The editor I used to put the front and the inside together into one picture crops a lot off the edges, so you can’t see them fully, but you get a good idea. These were all only 50 cents!

  3. Do you have a Wal-Mart nearby? You can go oilnne to their photo center and design a card then select one hour printing and it pick it up from a local Wal-Mart. The cards come out decent and it’s the best deal I’ve found. You can also go into the store and do it.
