Is the Zip Code / Street missing from an address?
Question: Hi Hanna, I wanted to double check if XX’s address as it appears to be missing the Zip Code? Should it not be some numbers after the state? Answer: Yes probably, but that is the way that XX themselves wrote in their address. As a hostess I can not double check every address for […]
When is the next DIY Postcard Swap?
The swap has grown to be a beloved feature of my blog, and many participate year after year. I open this international postcard swap up for participants twice a year; once in spring and once again in autumn (CET – Central European Time). That said, there is no set date when that is so I […]

Can I share the postcards I receive on Facebook?
Yes, of course you can! I’d be delighted. But when I have been asked to create a postcard group on Facebook I have declined. I do not need another thing to keep track of in my life. Share your postcards in the mixed media and mail art groups you’re already in, or on your own […]

I only got very few postcards what should I do?
Wait a bit longer please. Remember that things can happen. People get sick, or forget to check their e-mail. International mail can take several weeks to get to you.

There is no or an unreadable e-mail address on the...
NO e-mail address on the back of your postcard? So sorry but I can not help you. If the person sending didnt add their e-mail to the back of their card I will assume they choose not to do that. Maybe theyre not comfortable sharing it. So I will not give out their e-mail to […]
Can I put my postcards in an envelope?
You can send the postcards in an envelope for protection if you want to, but you do not have to. Personally I prefer to get a postcard send the postcard way – without the envelope! In that way the postman will get to see it too. And also, the whole idea of mail art is […]
