Transform beautiful nature imagery into postcards to be sent to those that you love and care about from you! Every month for a year!

**please note: new stretch goals and tier bonuses are detailed below**

Remember the excitement of opening up the mail box and finding a letter, card or postcard with your name on it? Smiling as you read it's message and saw who it was from and that they thought about you!  In this day of text messages and emails, the mail services seems to be dominated by mass marketing fliers and paper bills. The personal touch of something both beautiful and tangible, such as a picture postcard sent to someone that you care about can still bring out smiles, warmth and a joyful heart in the receivers!

What's this project?

To turn my photographs of the natural world into postcards and send them out to people that you care about,"from you"! A postcard with either a pleasant quote or a few lines in your own words, will be sent out each month to whomever you choose!

What's the Goal?

A postcard a month for a year sent to people that you care about! To help us connect or reconnect with those that we care about with that "old fashioned snail mail" through monthly and twice-monthly postcard mailings. I'd love to help bring repeated smiles to a hundred people through this project!

Why choose this project?

Sometimes, life gets busy. We think about our family, loved ones and friends and we mean to write them or we want to say something to let them know that we are thinking about them and the next thing we know, we are trying to make dinner, take care of the kids, working on the project that our boss has been hounding us about or a myriad of other "things" that seem to just take up our time. I love to take pictures, especially, when I'm camping or on a small hike AND I love to make people smile! Let me help you bring out the smiles in your loved ones. With multiple photo themes to choose from these cards are perfect for parents, aunts & uncles, children, the elderly or home bound, and everyone else that you care about and would like to know that you think of them!

***Best Value: Send them yourself package $30: packet of 12 random postcards that will be stamped and ready for your message---I'll even throw in a pen! This breaks down to just $2.50 per prestamped postcard!

Birthday Postcards  do you ever mean to send out that birthday card to family and friends, just to remember, after the fact? Has your birthday greetings turned into the simple shout out on fb? I'll be happy to turn your birthday  calendar reminders into beautiful birthday wishes held in your loved ones' hands. You choose the theme and can even write a few lines---your thoughts and your wishes---sent out at the right time, no matter how hectic or crazy your schedule may be!

Themes:

  • Wildlife
  • Flowers
  • Landscape
  • Insects
  • Zoos & Aquariums
  • Random combinations
  • Happy Birthday Postcards

At this point, I already have hundreds of images for the theme options, ready to be transformed into postcards! With my camera, I'll continue to add more photographs to the collections. I love to get out with my camera as often, as possible. Once the project run has finished, I'll send out a survey where you can let me know to whom your cards will be sent to; your theme choice; and you can even opt to have a few personal lines added to each card!

If you leave your email address in the survey when the project is finished, you will also receive reminder updates every time your postcards have been mailed out to your loved ones. :)

Note for International Mailings:

All of the incentive pricing has been based for inside the Continental U.S. If you would like cards sent out to international addresses, please add $1.50per mailing.
