In the era of text messages, emails, and Facebook wall posts, a postcard can be a refreshing reminder that penned communication is still a great form of correspondence. More than that, a clever or funny postcard can brighten the day of the recipient — and if you’re really good at it, a funny postcard can be the first contact between you and a customer.

We’ve gathered a range of postcard examples to get you back into using postcards in a variety of ways.

1. Superhero Humor

For your Batman-adoring friends, why not send a message hinting that you visited the city where the symbol of the bat is thrown into the air when danger is lurking?

2. Thinking Outside of the Box

Tell me you wouldn’t RSVP. A combination of a fun engagement picture and an excellent spin away from the traditional ‘save the date’ memo, I think this postcard has a noteworthy nuptial takeaway.

6. Just-Plain-Honest Fun

This simple design uses a two-tone palette to give an old-fashioned feel to the design. Plus, the tongue-in-cheek quote is pretty funny and, quite frankly, relatable.

7. Honest Secret, Cruel Joke

I had to include one example from PostSecret, where anonymous senders reveal their greatest secrets for posting on a weekly basis. If you ever need to get the truth out while keeping your identity under wraps, you might consider this route.

9. High-Maintenance Humor

Ann Taintor has given the world a gift by combing great ’50s and ’60s era artwork with curt phrasing. This particular example is great to send to your friends who appreciate your lack of appreciation for roughing it.
