This book is a series of vintage postcards, four postcards per page. It's great for looking through, but also a great for sending out Christmas cards at a lower cost (postcard stamps). The book easy easy to break apart - just take out the staples holding it together and tear away at the perforated edges! I have gotten more compliments this year than any other on how wonderful my Christmas cards were. The old-fashioned charm and warm sentiments in the cards were perfect.
I knew these were postcards when I bought them a few years ago and that's exactly what I needed for my hand-made cards. The back page describes them as so, as does an excerpt. I used black photo corners on them and attached them to dark red card stock. Then I wrapped a gold metallic pipe cleaner around the fold and twisted both ends. I rubber stamped and embossed a Merry Christmas greeting inside it. They turned out beautifully and no two were alike. I received many compliments on my Victorian Christmas cards.
I only wish I had gotten more! Not only is having post cards a money saver on postage, but these unique cards are just that - unique! I sent them to my friends and they flipped over them! I saved some for myself just to have. But these recreated early 1900s post cards are sure to put a smile on anyone's face.
It can be hard to find good Christmas-themed postcards, so I'm glad I found this collection. I've read the negative reviews, and I can't understand what else anyone would want for $0.29 per card, which is what they come out to. So what if they're glossy? So what if the edges are perforated? I have a cheap paper cutter that I use to trim the edges since I don't like the perforations, which takes only a very short time. I'd rather trim the edges myself than pay a markup and have some clunky box to fish them out of. The only thing I don't like is some of the Santas look a little sinister to me, but I'm mailing them to people on postcrossing who want Christmas cards, not hanging them above a crib in a nursery.I've uploaded photos of the cards so you can see what you'll receive.
These are nice Christmas postcards. It is true that they are quite glossy. The images are great, everyone loved them, and I saved on postage costs and the waste of the envelope. I would buy them again.
I got these Christmas postcards and was very pleased. First of all they arrived at my home quickly. Second, and most importantly, the postcards were very beautiful. Anyone who likes vintage pictures will love these. Also, in this economy sending postcards is less expensive for postage. Makes this deal doubly good. I got a lot of good comments on the postcards I sent out. Even if you dont want to send postcards out these are nice to just have to keep and look at.I give it a 5-star.
I really like these cards, cute illustrations. I wish there wasn't a white border on each, it makes the illustration smaller on the cards, though they still really are nice vintage reproductions. They come in a book, with 4 postcards per page, you have to fold and tear the cards, which unfortunately does leave a perforation mark on 2 sides of each card (the only reason I am rating down at all). Really, even with that- you can't find better postcards for Christmas so reasonably priced! They are postcard sized too- not oversized, which would have required additional postage. These can be mailed with a postcard stamp only (in the US, otherwise a Global stamp).
More than 75% of these cards were very appealing and nostalgic but I didnt like the thick white borders. Postcards look better when the pic extends all the way to the edge. Might trim border off and glue pic to a piece of red or green construction paper to make a prettier card. However I won't bother doing this if I'm just sending card to not-so-special "friends." LOL. Can't believe 1 reviewer threw these cards in the recycling bin!!! What a waste. They're not the most high-class cards but they deserve more respect than that. Didnt have a problem with the glossiness. But these cards smelled very toxic. Possibly due to cheap inks
