On July 6, 1879 the first picture postcard was made. In doing research for this article, I found a lot of different dates, times and locations as to when this really occurred. But regardless of the date, I’m just glad that it was invented! It is probably the No. 2 thing I’m asked to do as a designer, second only to logo design.

If this isn’t something that you’re creating for your clients, now is the time to start. Here are 10 postcards that I’ve created throughout the years, hopefully it will give you inspiration for your next postcard project!
