Blog > Postcard sets roundup!

We know that in big touristic cities (or smaller towns) postcards can get quite expensive, or even hard to find… sometimes all there is left in the local paper shop is a stack of yellowed cards in a corner box.

Fortunately for us, Amazon.com has a great selection of postcard books which will cover your every need! They’re also surprisingly cheap yet very good quality, so we decided that a little roundup was in order. Here are 20 of our favorite postcard sets:

100 postcards for less than $15? I call that a bargain! :) Happy shopping!

A couple of years ago, discovered the Art of Pixar on the UK site... bought it, posted link on forum, and they went out of stock quite quickly. When it came back into stock, the price went up!

FairyFoot, United Kingdom
(good grief, just looked at price now!!! I think I only paid £5)

meiadeleite, Portugal
@FairyFoot: indeed! we have that Pixar set and it's lovely... but the price has gone crazy expensive, so I took it off the post.

I've also ordered from pomegranate.com. 100 postcards sight unseen for $15.00 plus shipping. Still inexpensive per postcard and a lot of them have been Favourites!

Half Priced Books sells post card books as well! (= That's where I got my Suicide Bunnies cards! (=
on


JennyBrand, United States of America
Half Priced Books sells post card books really cheap! Usually $4.00 for 20-30 cards! I found a post card book full of views from space in the clearance section for $1.00!

vliegbeestje, Netherlands
These are incredible, so cool!
on


Danielle_and_Herbert, Netherlands
I have the Wanderlust, Bunny Suicides and Cutest Cats cards. They are very cool! Charley Harper cards seem very nice also, just like the Happy Animal Time cards. Don't like the Pantone, Onion and Penguin bookcovers postcards.
on


icspi, Netherlands
The Pantone collection is unbelievable!!!!!

I bought "Postcards from Puffin" at Dublin airport, that is the twin box for Postcards from Penguin... And it has only Children's book illustrations.
http://www.amazon.com/Postcards-Puffin-Books/dp/0141333375/ref=sr_1_1?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1316108246&sr=1-1

And I suggest this for those who enjoy people and fashion (?):

BOOGIE_PIPPIN, United Kingdom
I have bought several books of postcards from Amazon, the variety is excellent. Often adults like the childrens cards as they remind them of books they read when young.
Like Danielle I have the Cutest Cats cards, I love them and and am tempted to keep them but will be good and send them to Postcrossers! I'm sure they will love them too.

gmur2much, United States of America

HM, Liechtenstein
two tips other then commercial amazon

http://www.petastore.de/buecher__medien#/postkarten
Germany, if you want to spent money for charity (vegetarians). My reason was not charity, but just to get a card from Nina Hagen. She has had so many different haircuts that I had espected to find a Taschenpostcardbook from here. But not.

Canada, happy cards from happy brothers printed on a bit thinner paper then usual - so you your travelling cards do not weight so much and need less kerosine then the ordinairy cards (towards a greener environment)

I bought too many postcardbooks everywhere I can find them, from Auschwitz to Cicciolina. Be serious and Have fun!

Sunflare, United States of America
For those of you in the U.S., I get many of my postcards from http://postcardstop.com/ as well as Amazon. I have the Where's Waldo and The Cutest Cat in the World sets - great sets. Found a Mutts set a year back on Amazon too.
