I’m so glad I found this topic. I’m fairly new here and I was sending self-made cards (mostly watercolour and ink sketches) and I every second user asked to not be sent self-made cards. I send store-bought cards if the profile mentions a preference, but I kept asking myself if other postcrossers were just too nice to say so or if self-made postcards were something of a no-go.
It’s nice to see I’m not the only one :relaxed:

There’s the wonderful Handmade RR

My jaw dropped… I love your painting about change! :orange_heart: I’ve seen it on IG and share it too and I had no idea who had done it!

Not my postcard (neither sent nor received) but so cute that I thought of sharing it here anyway :slight_smile: Postcard JP-1653246

Not everything handmade is suitable for making postcards, unfortunately.
If you make some really nice photos of your lovely handmade jewellery, you could print postcards with it, if you like to have your jewellery on a postcard.
