I love using my “new” (vintage) typewriter for cards; no matter how hard I try, my handwriting is very difficult to read… Plus, people seem to really enjoy receiving typewritten postcards!
However, the postcards I ordered online recently, with Dutch motives like windmills and bicycles (I live in the Netherlands), turned out to be very thick and sturdy.
Which is lovely - but they are impossible to get into the typewriter!
Of course, there are solutions like typing on a piece of paper or a large sticker, and glueing those to the postcard… But it’s not ideal.
I have several postcards in my old stash that are just a bit thin and more flexible than ‘regular’ ones; those are perfect for my typewriter, but they rarely match what I’d like to send, image-wise.
Because of the lockdown, I need to purchase online for the foreseeable future, so I can’t go into a store and check cards for flexibility.
Does anyone know of a particular brand or store that has nice images, on cardstock that is a bit on the thin & supple side?
