For many of us, antique postcard offer a certain nostalgic charm that’s almost impossible to come by through modern means of communication.
A lot can be said in just a few words, especially when you have the perfect image to back it up.
With Shutterfly, you can create custom postcard displays for your favorite childhood memories, vacation destinations, and more.
The best part? You get to choose how you want to display them.
Choose a Display Type
The first thing you need to decide is what type of display you want to create.
The most common postcard displays are wall-mounted boards, scrapbook-style books, and table-top displays.
Each option has its pros and cons that may make one more appealing than another, depending on your needs.
Choose a photo collage template with up to nine photos per sheet. Lay them out as-is or use our easy-to-use editing tools to crop, add filters, adjust color, and more.
Select your preferred dimensions and paper type, and we’ll do the rest. When they arrive at your door, all you have to do is hang them on the wall.
Floor Display Shelf
A wall display is a great way to showcase a lot of postcards, but that may not work in smaller spaces or if you have a lot more that will fit on one wall.
In these cases, consider a floor display shelf. These shelves typically have three layers and can hold dozens of postcards without taking up too much space.
The top layer can be used for more significant postcards, while the bottom layers store less essential cards that you still want to display.
If you’re attached to a particular postcard or two, you can also display them by framing them.
You can get frames designed explicitly for postcards, but they’re just picture frames with matting around the edges.
You can also use regular picture frames and either cut out the center so the entire postcard can be seen or leave the center intact for a smaller one.
As you’ve discovered in this article, there are countless types of postcard displays out there waiting to be used.
Whether you want to display your photos, capture your family’s adventures, or even keep track of memorable moments from a vacation, a postcard display may be the perfect solution.
There’s no need to shell out hundreds—if not thousands—of dollars for big, fancy scrapbooks when you can achieve similar results for less.
And who knows? You might find that your postcard display ends up outlasting all your old scrapbooks as well!
