Vintage Postcard Inspiration

July 20, 2010

Postcards are timeless. They are great little take-aways that you can keep or send to a friend as a souvenier. They also serve as mini-billboards to advertise goods and services. Althought postcards have very little real estate, as a designer, it can be a challenge to "fill up" a postcard with an effective design. Take a look at these vintage postcard designs from around the web for ideas on how to use photography, illustration, humor and scale to make an impression with your next postcard design.

Thank you for sharing my postcard on this site.(Things are not what they seem.) All of the postcards displayed are very nice. I have often thought of designing a postcard and this looks like a site to consider. This is a second blog I have about postcards and I am working on a website.
