Where can I buy postcards?

You can buy postcards in many different places! Following is a small list of locations where our members have found them for sale:

  • Post offices
  • Tourist information offices (or simply around tourist attractions)
  • Museum and gift shops
  • Stationery stores
  • Book stores
  • Newspaper or magazine kiosks
  • Convenience stores (drug stores, supermarkets, department stores, truck stops)
  • Airports

If you prefer to buy them online, Amazon usually has some good deals on postcard sets and boxes. We've highlighted some of them here and here.

If you have a knack for photography or design, you can also try making your own postcards and have them professionally printed.

Now and then, Postcrossing showcases online and offline stationery shops and postcard makers on the blog. You can find those posts under the tag stationery-shop. You will also to find banners on the website advertising several online postcard shops.
