Indonesia - Where to get postcards

Hello fellow postcrossers,

I live in Jakarta, and I’ve been keeping a look-out for places that sell postcards in Indonesia. I only find some shops that sell postcard (Periplus, Kinokuniya, and some bookshops at the airport), but the selection is very limited. I also knew some online shops at Shopee and Tokopedia that sell postcards.

Do you know of other places in Indonesia that sell postcards? Places like post office, bookshop, stationery shop, and even online shop is fine. Please let me know, so I can make a list in here. I hope you and I can add to each other’s knowledge. I also hope this thread can help Indonesian postcrossers and postcrossers who are visiting Indonesia to find postcards.

Thank you! :slight_smile:

This is a list of physical stores and locations in Indonesia to get postcards, organized by region and city (including online shops and Indonesian postcards from outside the country). Please message me if you want to recommend a store (or online shop) in your city that sell postcards, so I can add it here. Thank you!

When I was in Makassar pre-covid there were some street-vendors right outside the post office in Jl. Selamet Riyadi No.10 selling viewcards.

In Denpasar there were loads of tourist shops in Sanur, which also sold postcards.

In Jakarta

  • Sarinah mall, they have reasonable price (Rp 5k each)
  • Filateli Corner in Central Post Office Pasar Baru (Rp 3k each)
  • Pasaraya Department Store, on souvenir floor (± 20k each, unreasonable price but some cards have real batik cloth)

Obviously, these places have limited cards :sweat_smile:

As for online shop (shopee & tokopedia) there are some stores, :mag: postcard / postcrossing, lot of variety and style will pop up. Range from 3500 to 9000 , depends on the store. Usually a store has same price for many different styles

Stationery like Gramedia, Kinokuniya, and grocery store like Super Indo sometimes sell them. But this depends where :sweat_smile: . Grand Indonesia mall might be a good place to see

Some Cafés in old town quarter has reportedly sold some cards, but I’ve never seen them

The varieties of cards sold in offline stores are sad, unfortunately. Few art shop sometimes sell them too but they can be thin and expensive, but the theme usually has nothing to do with Indonesia (just cute illustrations)

Oh, I thought postcard in Sarinah mall were expensive (like, Rp 10k-15k each). I only buy stamps at Filateli Corner Pasar Baru and didn’t know that they also sell postcards. :sweat_smile:

Grand Indonesia is indeed a good place to find postcard. I’ve bought some nice viewcards and illustration postcards at Gramedia and Kinokuniya Grand Indonesia circa 2018-2019.

Thank you for your recommendations, @catchycat! :slight_smile:

Thank you for the recommendations, @Larch :grin:

hiI! I don’t know if it’s still relevant or not (because I haven’t been to Yogyakarta again for a few years), but in some souvenir shops in Malioboro, they also sell some postcards. But we need to check again whether it’s still available or not. And also, Gramedia Malioboro had a lot of pretty vintage postcards before, but still it needs to be re-checked :slight_smile:



Actually I am also selling postcard. I live in Jakarta. And I might be contacted @medyloekito.

The design of my postcards are taken from my daughter’s painting, my father’s painting, my son’s underwater photo, and my poetry. So they’re certainly original and special design.

Thank you.


I found another local shop: Boxlibby (Shopee). If you want to add it here @-hiki-.

Or perhaps for “Local Shops” you can just put a link to here or here instead?
Having the same link lists in separate threads can cause confusion, and in case those online shops are not active, the list in the other thread(s) is a wiki so it can be updated easily by other Indonesian users. So in here, you can focus on the offline shops and international shops. If you want, of course. :wink:

Oh, no. So sad… They had other craft things too other than postcards. Shops like that are like gems nowadays… :slightly_frowning_face: Thanks for the info!

Hello:))) does anyone know about where to buy postcard with tourists topic in Yogyakarta and around (now I’m in Prambanan, maybe Solo, Surakarta…:slight_smile: thank yooou!:)))

It’s easier to find postcards in Yogyakarta instead of the capital city Jakarta.
Unfortunately I don’t live there :smile:
I don’t know any forum member from Yogyakarta since only few of Indonesian postcrossers join this forum.

Siapa yang tahu ya @IndonesiaRaya ?

@aletterbox answer is the best solution in Jogja, please check & find out :+1:

btw freesia in toped & shopee (in main thread) is my shop :face_with_hand_over_mouth:

Looks like I missed this topic, I’m sorry :cry:

I actually have written about places to buy postcards in Yogyakarta in my personal blog here

However, it was last updated on February 2020, before I moved to my hometown.
And I haven’t visited Yogyakarta again.

Hello Indonesian friends, I will go to Yogyakarta soon! I hope to find postcards. I see there are places in this thread that I can check for postcards. I wonder if they all survived the pandemic. It looks like no one here has the most updated information. But at least it’s helpful to know where to search. I will try and update when I come back, for the next travellers!


Any shops in Kuta ? Guidance pls.

Thanks :pray:
