Cathy did something interesting and printed a little blurb of a letter to paste on the back of her postcard. In this way of course you can say a lot more than if you hand-write a greeting like I’ve always done. It’s not as “personal” but still I really liked it. What do you guys think, should I try it for my next round of postcards?
