Back when the internet was not yet accessible to the general public, and when emailing did not exist, one would send letters and postcards to deliver messages other people. It would take days, weeks, or even months just for one letter or postcard to reach a recipient, depending on the distance. If you were to write a message to someone, you would need to make the most out of your letters just to save money from all the mailing fees.
Nowadays, writing a message can be done in the fastest and cheapest way possible. As long as you have internet connection, making your own email account is free and there is no charge per email sent. You don’t necessarily need marketing postcard templates or a vintage postcard template. But the reputation brought about by postcards still lives on up to this day.

What Are Postcards?
Postcards are cards that are used for writing messages without the need of using an envelope, though some postcards do include their own envelope for mailing. Unlike letters, a postcard has a design printed on one side and on the other side are spaces for writing the names and addresses of both the sender and recipient, and space for the message.
Postcards have already existed since the early 1800’s but were not as common as it is today. For example, real estate agents back then would prefer writing a more personalized letter on a blank paper since writing on real estate postcard templates were still considered rare and expensive.
Today, however, postcards can be found abundantly in gift stores, book stores, and souvenir shops, and we can also make one for ourselves conveniently. Postcards nowadays come in various forms and themes. If you just got married and you want to send postcards as a way of thanking those who witnessed your celebration, you can wedding postcard templates to save you the hassle of writing individual letters.

How To Make Your Own Postcards?
Postcards can be easily done without the use of computers. Children are even taught how to make them in school by using bond paper, pen, and crayons. While this is a wonderful idea, since it can explore a child’s creativity, you can also take it one level higher by doing it digitally. Making postcards on the computer is no longer a serious issue nowadays because we have templates to help us out.
With our postcard templates, you just need to add new elements that you want to include, and remove the ones that you don’t. To help you out on how to make your own postcards out of our templates, follow the simple steps below:
- Since we already know the purpose of making postcards, we just need to determine who our target audience will be or who the postcard will be addressed to. If you are trying to send a postcard to someone who regularly goes to the salon, then we have salon postcards available. You can use political postcard templates when making postcards to be sent to registered and active voters, and advertising postcard templates to business people or companies.
- Once you have decided who your postcard’s recipient will be, choose from among the downloadable postcard templates, and download it by clicking on the download button that accompanies the thumbnail of the template.
- Open the downloaded postcard template on a photo editor software and make the necessary changes depending on how you want your postcard to appear. You may add more details or get rid of some, you may also write the contact information and message digitally or you may also write it by hand.
- After you’re done editing your postcard, have it printed given that you have already secured some high quality, thick paper. Another option here is to have your postcard printed at printing companies instead.
