There are so many shaped postcards out there. I would love to see the different types of shaped postcard that other Postcrossers have sent or received. Although there is a topic about Unique material, Unusual, 3D/Lenticular Postcards, I don’t think there is a specific topic to share shaped postcards like a gallery yet (please correct me if I’m wrong). Shaped postcards are more common, varied, and easier to get compared to unusual material postcards so I think they deserve their own topic.
So please share any shaped postcard you have sent or received, from official or swap, or perhaps ones that you have cherished for yourself!
I will start with some of mine.
