In our digital world of texting and social media, sending a postcard that will take weeks to arrive might seem pointless. Your friends and family have already gotten all the updates live from your feed. Right? Well, if you’ve received a postcard in the mail recently, you understand there’s a certain magic to it that can’t be replaced. Here are three reasons to bring this tradition back on your next trip. 

Unique Souvenirs

Postcards are tangible souvenirs that you can collect, display, or even framed, adding character to your home. Plus, if you mail it, there’ll be a cool stamp on the back you won’t get if you just bring the postcard back. Think of it kind of like a time capsule, transporting you back to the moment you wrote the card. 

A Personal Touch

Receiving a physical postcard in the mail carries a personal touch. A digital message can never fully replicate a handwritten note. The recipient can hold your travel experiences in their hands and feel a deeper connection to your journey. 

Surprise and Delight

Receiving a postcard in the mail is a delightful surprise in today’s digital age. It can brighten someone’s day and create a sense of excitement as they await your message.
