Postcards

I am working on a couple sets of postcards that will soon be on my Etsy account. I'm thinking there will be about 3 or 4 sets with 3 or 4 different cards in each set, but right now I have only a travel set and one of a love/friendship set.

The postcards are about 4x6 hand drawn with zig pens and then watercolor painted on top. I will have to mat them to something so they are sturdier. On the back will be regular postcard things (probably hand written.)

I am also thinking that since postcards, and mail in general, are becoming outdated, that I would sell the postcards already stamped... It would kind of be annoying on my part to buy a whole bunch of stamps, but I think people would be more likely to write it and put it in the mail if there was already a stamp on it. Comment on what you think, it would help a lot :)

A couple of pictures of the cards.






It was unintentional at first that I did a travel theme... maybe I subconsciously want to go somewhere. Actually, yes, I do...

So, please tell me if you would buy these on Etsy (or at a craft fair)... they would come in packs of 3 or 4 but they would all be different and all handmade :)

Pre-stamped is a good idea! In april they're coming out with puppy/kitten stamps to benefit animal rescue or the humane society (I was just at the post office), you should get those!
