Postcards I Received


I received this great card from someone not on my Trading Fabric Postcardgroup. It is an awesome card and I just love it. There is one problem. When you fail to send the card in a clear envelope or a regular envelope the Post Office will surely try their best to destroy it with ink and marks. You can click on the picture for a better look.

I always send my cards out in clear envelopes, sometimes the regular envelopes. I strongly advise it.


This was another beautiful card I received from someone on another group. I love it as well as the ghost card but it came without a clear envelope or regular envelope and you can see ink on the card. It is a shame this happens but when they are mailed “naked” it is going to happen. The Post Office has not way of NOT damaging a card.  I advise mailing in clear envelopes or even regular envelopes. Some do not like to pay 20 cents extra for the clear envelopes but to me it is a small price to pay for art.


Barbara L. TFPC 25-3. I love this fall card. Is it not neat the way she took the center and cut it out?

  1. You know, that’s interesting – your comment about the envelopes – because one of the guiding principals behind the original fabric postcard group was that the stamps and postmarks and dings along the way were an integral part of the piece of art. We never put ours in envelopes. We wanted the postmarks and stamps. Once I sent one with feathers through the mail naked with no damage at all.

    Now we fuss because they get dirty. That is something to think about.
