About greeting cards

Probably there is not a single person who did not receive and did not give a card. A postcard or” open letter “is a postcard with an image that can be made just as beautiful art, or have a thematic focus with text, such as “Dear hero of the Day”, but it is worth noting that the text does not carry a specific date of birth, etc.

The history of the postcard begins in 1869, when a “correspondent card” was issued in Austria-Hungary with a printed stamp of two kreuzers. During the war, soldiers sent letters to their relatives, sometimes providing them with illustrations, this idea was actively accepted by postal merchants.

So there were — postcards, a sheet of cardboard with an image on the front side,and the other side was intended for writing a message and address. According to the types of postcards, they were divided into artistic ones, illustrated by the artist, and documentary ones, in which the role of illustration was performed by photography.

Currently, in addition to standard greeting cards, there are individual cards and envelopes, they are usually made by the donor of the card or envelope, here you only need to show your imagination, for example, you can take a photo of the hero of the day, edit it in a graphic program, put it in a beautiful frame.

If you don’t know how to use graphic software, you can just write a letter to a design firm and tell them what you want, and then qualified designers will tell you how best to do it.

Also, with the development of digital technologies, postcards – playcasts have become quite popular. A playlist is a combination of an image, text (wishes), and music.

The main difference between playcasts and postcards is the presence of music. A playcast, as well as a postcard can be made by anyone, the main thing is that You have a fantasy and an idea, and there are a lot of services on which you can easily create a playcast-a postcard from the Internet, for example: www.playcast.ru

There are also 3d postcards, video postcards or presentations, music postcards that start playing music when opened,and reusable postcards that usually change the wish list.

But probably the most original and interesting type of postcards are Hand-made postcards. Postcards made with your own hands. This is where the artist and designer can truly show all their imagination and creativity.

See examples of some of them.
