University card station

Set up a table with cards, stamps and pens outside my campus office today. I added the Postcrossing web address to the flyer and copies of an article I published on Native American cards.


How nice! I am curious to know how people responded to this experiment!! :heart_eyes:


Yes, how many people took cards?

How wonderful🤗

I love this! What a great public service :slight_smile:

Just set it up today to help with the stress on the next 3 weeks…hopefully students will notice. I’ll refill cards and stamps if they do


Such a lovely idea! Looking forward to future updates :muscle:t2:

That’s nice. Hope it turns out just the way you wished it would.

This is so lovely! I hope the students enjoy the cards!

Wow! I’d love to see people sending their FIRST POSTCARD EVER from your table :heart:


I can see some postcards from Love’s Travel Stop on that picture :grinning:

Yes and the Ben Franklin in BG!

Wow! When i have enough budget, i might steal this idea from you. I also work in a university setting, might be a good idea to put beside a postcard exhibit or yes, even just outside the office or classroom. Thanks!

Wish I did this with my time at UC Berkeley. I did convince my flat mate back in autumn 2020 and he loved it.


We have a Spiderman in Pop Culture conference this fall so I think I’ll buy the big box set and just hand them out to students…they won’t mail of course and it will be their 1st postcard, but it’s a start.

I recently did a Social Justice activity in my Native American Women’s class: handed out prestamped postcards and asked them to write their thoughts to the Attorney General, but they didn’t know how…most had never seen a postcard before. Lack of familiarity with the medium is the biggest hurdle

The project did fairly well, restocked the cards several times and grad students told me they used some. But now the semester is over so I packed up my station. My Chair asked for some cards and gave me 20 old bird stamps she had in her desk in trade


Wonderful idea

What a great idea!! :slightly_smiling_face:
