Okay, I’ll say right up front – you’re either gonna think this is really cool or really lame. Hopefully you’ll think it’s cool like I do!
I received an email today with a discount postcard printing offer from Moo (15% off a pack of Moo postcards with promo code 9MW4J4). In the email, they mentioned Postcrossing, a website that matches up random people all over the world for postcard sharing. Sign up for a free account, and you’ll be given the name and address of someone in the world that you can mail a postcard to. Other random people will mail you postcards too. (This is the part that you will either think is wonderful and fun, or totally lame)
I just signed up at Postcrossing, and was given a name and address for someone in China. I’d like to take a bunch of pictures of my favourite parts of Toronto and make my own postcards (probably through Moo’s offer). Or try and find a bunch of unusual and beautiful postcards, or old-timey ones like those pictured up there. But for now, I think I’ll send a generic Canada or Toronto postcard, since I’m eager to get started!
