Having been a postcard collector for many years now, one starts to notice a general sameness of mass-produced postcards (after all, a beach looks the same wherever it is – sand, waves, water). So it’s great when something genuinely different comes along, like this one:
It’s a DIY card made by a child in India, as the message relates:
“Hello form Chittorgarh. This postcard was handmade by some local children – I don’t know who it is but the big temple here is to Shiva. This is one of my most favourite places but tomorrow we go to the Octopussy Palace. This morning we looked for tigers – didn’t see any.”
This is the only hand-drawn DIY postcard I have in my collection. I do have some personal photographs turned into postcards. And, as I mentioned before Canada Post and the U.S. have online tools and printing services to make DIY postcards – so please feel free to send me one and I’ll feature it here!
