Mailed postcards have an advantage being postmarked they record the time and place where created.

Note: pastel, collage and embellishments do not travel well and may cause postal machinery damage/breakage.

Hey Aurora--

This group really focuses on handmade, not copies.

Keep the hand made in Hand Made postcards!
