The Charm of Printed Postcards and Letters

While the digital technology and the Internet has made every mode of communication simple and accessible, there are still some occasions when the traditional way of sending postcards and written mail is more widely appreciated. Some advantages still exist in designing, printing and sending postcards the traditional way, instead of using its digital counterpart.


For one, e-postcards may be more convenient, but the traditional printed varieties—which require more effort to make and send—are regarded as more valuable. Secondly, any postcard sent through email can be deleted by mistake, whereas a card sent by post will most likely be kept by the recipient in a box or bureau drawer.


One thing to note about handwritten letters and postcards, too, is that it doesn’t need a computer or any device to view. Computers can malfunction and prevent the proper opening of a digital postcard or letter, preventing the recipient from seeing the message immediately. A letter hard copy can be read anytime, anywhere, and as soon as the recipient gets it.


Handwritten letters and printed postcards aren’t out of vogue. There are many people who continue to appreciate receiving greeting cards and missives via the traditional post, with lovely graphics on them. Don’t hesitate to have your own cards printed and send them to a loved one celebrating his or her birthday.
