Be descriptive in your posts. Here are some samples and the obligation rules for each type of exchange.

[Request Exchange] Looking for a card from Japan.
Both parties are obligated to send a postcard.

You could make [Thank You] post if you want, but there's a weekly thread for that.


Communication is key to a successful exchange.

Please edit your posts in the following manner to ensure good communication. Use reddit names only.
The poster should honor the comments as received when sending out several postcards.

Custom Postcard Book

Hi Everyone,

I want to make a postcard book with tear away lines with my personal photos I’ve taken as gifts to my family.

Does anyone know where i can make this? Paper Chase Press is close to what I’m looking for but would like more customization options.

Any help would be great!

I have two boxes of art postcards I’d like to exchange. Please tell me which one you like and for exchange, I like anything art sketching. It doesn’t have to be urban. I love botanical too and surrealistic.

PM which kind you would like and your details.

Looking to collect postcards from every country

Hi! I’m 27f and from the states. My goal is to collect a postcard from a penpal from as many countries and states that I can. I’d love to have them all in a book or framed in one giant frame.

A bit about me:

27f, I’m engaged; have 2 cats and love gardening. I like music and collect vinyls. I also collect postcards as you might have put together. I’m a city girl who likes to bake focaccia and homemade spaghetti. Muse is my favorite band besides The Grass Roots. Aurora is my favorite singer/songwriter. I like reading and watching tv/movies. I just got into birdwatching/birding. I’m 420 friendly as I’m chronically ill and it helps me a lot. I’m a pagan/christian which probably sounds confusing because it is lol. I’m pan, and my fiance is a great ally. I like old things and I like puns. Oh! And I’m a graphic designer.

I can’t wait to make new friends! Thank you!

If you’re interested please send me a chat request!

[Thank you] u/ericadarling

Thank you for the Pinnacles National Park postcard! I did have a long but lovely day today. I had my 3 month follow-up with my oncologist and a PET scan. All of my labs were good and my scan was clear! PTL! I'm tired, but very thankful! ☺️

Written & Stamped

Hey everyone, Is it wrong to ask people for proofs during a postcard exchange ?? Like asking them to send a photo of the postcard written & stamp.

For some people it may seem as we have trust issues ( ngl - sometimes postcards don’t come to your end. Don’t know who to blame . The person or the postal services ) And sometimes you just want an assurance because international postage is expensive, so are the postcards

So what are your opinions on it
