Two days ago I got my first post card test prints. This is the first time I print my photos and art as real postcards. I’ve had them printed before but as art cards on a very different kind or paper. More like miniature pictures you can frame and hang on the wall or use as a postcard. Now I want to try something different and see how I will do in the postcard business. I want to believe that despite Instagram, Facebook and Pintrest, where you easily and instantly can share pictures from your location while traveling, people will still continue to appreciate buying, sending and receiving an old fashioned paper postcard. I think it’s the same as with everything old school, like the comeback of the vinyl record for example. It’s convenient to be able to have music – and photos – digitally stored, but the more things become “invisible” the more you will miss the physical aspects. Like holding the item in your hands. It gives it a different value. I’m not against digitalization, but I still think we should be careful and not eliminate all the physical items totally. Like money, music and photographs for example. But that is another story…
I might be old school in my way of thinking. Maybe it is because I’m getting older and nostalgic and I feel things are moving a bit too fast so I want to preserve some of the good old days. But also not everyone is a fan of technology and want to have things like they used to be.
The reasons can be many but I want to give it a go and see what happens.
