Early today we've reached 13 million postcards! Congratulations everyone! They seem to be coming faster and faster these days! :)
We'd like to feature a couple of designers who are also postcrossers, and have used their talents to create postcards especially for the project.
We discovered Alex's (aka Shurkala) postcards by accident, but were immediately in awe of his skills! Alex told us that the postcards were born of an experiment with typography and combining digital vector drawing with watercolor. He's very happy with the results, and started printing and selling his postcards on Shurkenberg, his Etsy shop.
The second designer, Femke (aka Mevrouwtjetheelepel) is a product designer from the Netherlands. Her mother, sister and aunts are also very active postcrossers so she created the 'Holland' postcard for them to send it to other postcrossers around the world. It's a beautiful card, filled with all kinds of things which we associate with The Netherlands:
We spent a good deal of time going through all the items, laughing at the unexpected ones :) You can check out this and other postcards made by Femke on her site (Dutch).
