Postick is the brand of postcard-back stickers that you can stick to the back of (almost) anything to convert it into a postcard. They have rounded corners (as in the pictures below), they’re slightly smaller than your average photograph and they have the normal postcard-backing lines printed on them.
In essence these awesome labels give ordinary things a chance at life as a postcard. It’s a great way to let someone know you’re thinking of them with a more personalised twist. Stick one on the back of a photograph, stick one on a fabric off-cut or stick one on that awesome piece you’ve cut out of last year’s GQ calendar. You could use one on almost anything as long as your “almost anything” is roughly the size and weight of a conventional postcard.
There’s something fantastic and wonderful about receiving postcards. It makes people extremely happy and the postcards last for centuries (unless they’re edible). It’s a miracle!
Now you too can perform miracles. You and Postick together! The options are endless. Buy a pack of 10, 20 or 50 for your friends. You’ll be right at the top of their “top five” list in no time, guaranteed*
