Recently I read about taking your 4" x 6" photographs and adhering them to an adhesive backing, making them sturdier and mailable....essentially turning them into one-of-a-kind postcards!
So I went ahead and bought some blank postcard backings online to try it for myself!
I mailed out all of these!
The nice thing is the postcard backings have preprinted lines on the address-side as well as a divider space for a personalized message. Very professional looking.
All the work is done for you. Just peel off the covering to expose the adhesive side, stick it onto the back of your photo, trim the excess, and --poof!-- instant postcards!
It was so much fun using pictures I had taken around Chicago these past couple months. Some of my favorites include:
The horse sculpture in front of The Chicago Stock Exchange
Fountain of the Great Lakes (next to the Art Institute)
Tulips blooming early last month along Michigan Avenue
Garbage cans near Congress and Columbus Drive (love that blue!)
Originally I thought I'd just do several of these. So far 25 have been mailed out! I loved these so much I'm going to order 100 more blank backings!
The photo-postcards were given to some of the people who've sent things to my P.O. Box.
If you'd like to possibly receive something from me just send ANYTHING(!) my way:
P.O. Box 804602
Chicago, IL. 60680-4602
Now time to take some more pictures!
