40+ Modern & Vintage Postcard Ideas

So I found some old postcards around the house lately, and loved the vintage look of them – So I rounded up a ton of vintage postcard designs, along with some ‘modern’ vintage postcard design examples, so you guys can get inspired by them! We take the mail for granted these days (and it might even go away soon!) but if you have some extra time, use this to think of some fun things to do with an old technology – the POST! Get inspired by these awesome modern ideas, like the google and the facebook postcards you will find below – perhaps use those ideas to create your own postcard designs, and get some printed off for you so you can go have fun mailing everyone you know these redundant cards :). Some of these cards are actually vintage originals though, so if you collect stamps or anything like that, you might want to add those to your collection! Whatever you are doing here, we hope you get inspired by the creative past, present and future these cards bring to mind :). Enjoy!

I love this. I think this was mainly for a joke, but facebook created this postcard to simulate a real life ‘poke’ I would totally buy this and mail it to a ton of people to ‘poke’ them in real life – so useless, but hilarious and awesome.

That is just awesome, like a vintage look with a modern code type

Also love the classy vintage look of these modern postcards – Like a Sir!
