  1. I like how some of the postcards play in the touch and visual part of the 5 senses. The 3D postcard brings a different look as well as the other postcard that is more centered of having the person feel the texture. Thanks for sharing!

  2. Such a big fan of this retro/outdoors look with 70’s style photo filtering. Definitely appears to be a nice trending design paradigm. I have lost count of hte amount of stamp-like and swirly font’s I now have installed on photoshop 🙂

  3. While I still love the look of the traditional postcards I really do love these. My favourite out of this bunch is ‘Greetings from Pasadena’.

  4. Some of these are really clever! I like the 30s retro feel to the Pasadena one. ‘Greetings And Salutations’ made me laugh out loud!
