- Postcard Listserv. Read the postcard collecting discussion group/electronic mailing list. The
newsgroup no longer exists as it once did. Please follow this link to instructions on how to
subscribe via email. The mailing "list" is a means for people to discussion collecting and find postcard swapping friends
on the Internet. It is distributed via email, and posts go to all the members. This group is one of the oldest postcard
discussion groups on the net. Many members have postcard pages below.
- Postcard FAQ. Read the FAQ (Frequently Asked
Questions and Answers) for the discussion group/electronic mailing list (above). Includes tips on postcard
collecting as well as tips on the postcard collecting group. The FAQ is now permanently at my site.
Follow this link to the Postcard Group FAQ.

postcards. If you're missing an old issue, or simply interested in reading about recipe postcards, check out this area.
- Freecard Group. Several collectors have formed a separate group for trading Freecards or Rack Cards.
This group can be joined by sending an email to email@example.com, or if you are a Yahoo! or Yahoo! Groups
member, you may find it easier to subscribe via the web page at http://groups.yahoo.com/group/freecard/.

interested in the Special Interest Group that encourages postcard hobby. The newsletter has 5-6 issues per year.
Please see note at bottom of the page.
- International Federation of Postcard Dealers' listing of Postcard Dealers
around the world. If you're a dealer and want to be listed, join this!

association of postcard dealers, many of whom are collectors as well (isn't that always the case, heheheh).
- Postcard Post. The Postcard Post specializes in airline postcards. Those
seeking to sell, trade, or buy rare airlines cards are urged to take a look.

- New York Public Library. The New York Public Library Mid-Manhattan Branch has a collection of historical
New York City Postcards, some of which are available online.

- ePodunk: The Power of
Place Over the years, tons of folks have sent me links for "e-postcards." I have refused to list them. They've always
been junky scanned photographs or drawings used for advertising, as bad as the electronic greeting card sites. They have had
little to do with real postcards, which this site is about. Well, ePodunk has a site that's finally done it right. They have thousands of vintage postcards from around the US that can be sent via email
as greeting cards.
- dotpattern has a collection of tacky, chrome, and even some vintage cards online.
They also appear to sell postcarding supplies and have eBay card auctions (although they were not currently active when I visited the page).

Note: I am no longer adding dealers to this page. I'm sorry, but it just
takes too much time to maintain, and I already have dozens of requests that have come in before yours. This list was put here
long before Yahoo and other search engines had many postcard dealers listed. Links pages such as this were vital to the way the
web worked. Now, with search engines and the like, these types of pages are no longer so necessary. It takes too long for me to
deal with the dozens of requests from collectors and dealers I receive every month. This list is considerably smaller than it
once was since many dealers have gone out of business and I have removed them, or they've moved their site without leaving any
indication of where it went. I will not be adding more links to this or other sections on this page except perhaps for dealers
who have been particularly instrumental in obtaining cards for me personally. Please do not ask to be added. I don't care if
you have 200,000 cards in stock and are the largest dealer in Romania. This policy has been in place since October 1999. I have
tried to make it more clear on 17 August 2001.
