Postcards still have a power and popularity that is often overlooked these days. Postcards communicate and they can often go places that other messages cannot. Did you somehow miss that?
Some just do not think much of postcards or think they could just be obsolete these days. After all, we can just shoot out an email, a text or a tweet. We can attach an image and call it an “electronic postcard.” Sure, this is easy, and the common thing nowadays. But it’s just not the same.
A real, actual postcard is an entirely different thing than all those electronic imitators. They are simple and can travel very different routes, and have a lasting impact. Not only can they be sent in the mail with a short message and a stamp on the back, but they can also be posted on a wall or bulletin board for all to see.
The selection has never been more diverse, as you can see on our website or catalog. VisionWorks gathers some of the best from hundreds of publishers around the world, as we also publishing some of our own. Each one has its own appeal, with a powerful image, text to make one think or an angle that tells a story. Some of the real postcard lovers find our website and put together an order here.
But the big thing for VisionWorks is to find retail brick & mortar shops to put them in. Where can you find the best selection, right in your local community? We sell wholesale to all kinds of shops, where they can be a very popular draw. From Indie Bookshops to Card & Gift shops, from Food Co-ops to Museum stores, the card rack can be quite popular. Each card rack features a different selection, appealing to their unique community. Whether their selection is built around Humor, Art or commentary on the current Political Madness or some of each.
Do you know the best source for great postcards in your local area? If so, please let us know. Perhaps we already serve them, but if not we would like to connect. For the store buyer that would like a great selection without having to order from many different suppliers, we may be the perfect connection. We love to see these postcards go far, and be easily available in your area.
If you cannot think of a place that already has a great selection of postcards, which shops in your area might stock them, if they knew an easy source? Perhaps there is a vibrant local indie bookshop, an offbeat gift shop, or boutique? Again, we want to hear your suggestions.
