Hello everyone!

 

In the last article I told you how can you start writing your postcard. Today I’ll tell you what’s next.
So if you wrote your postcard with ID number and everything what you wanted to write and postcard is beautiful, you gonna think :
OK, I wrote postcard with ID number and everything what I wanted to write and postcard is beautiful and scented. But… what’s next?
That’s good question! So the last step in sending is POST. Yeah, you have to buy stamps!
In Europe (fortunately not in Poland) you can buy “electronic” ( I think they’re unfeeling. Black-white, boring and printed by automatic machine in post… :/ )
And traditional (colourful, detailed, unique and with SOUL!).  In every country  traditional post stamps are special and great. I’ve got  47 postcards and my favourite stamps are from: Japan, Finland, Netherlands, Belarus, USA and Brazil. Polish stamps are pretty, too!
But you have to remember: every continent has different price! It’s very important !
There are prices of stamps in Poland:

A- 2,40 zł ---- 3,00 zł
B- 2,50 zł ---- 3,20 zł
C- 2,50 zł ---- 3,50 zł
D- 2,50 zł ---- 4,50 zł

A-    All Europe (with All Russia, Cyprus and Israel)
B-    Africa, Nothern America
C-    Asia, Southern and Middle America
D-    Australia and Oceania

Like you see I marked two colours. Why?
Green it’s letter ECONOMIC
Blue it’s letter PRIORITY.
You can ask: What’s the difference?
So I can answer you: HUGE!
Personally I send economic postcards just when I send this postcard to some countries and JUST IN EUROPE! And just to: Germany and Netherlands.
WHY? If you send postcards there is always a chance to lose your postcard. Yes, it’s discouraging.
So if I not send postcard to Netherlands or Germany I always send priority postcard. At the beginning I sent gorgeous glittery postcard to China. And I sent it as economic. And for almost 300 days this postcard has had a status EXPIRED. It’s lost. So if you are afraid of losing your postcard pay little more. That’s just 60 groszy or something like this ?
But please, don’t tune up bad. I have sent 51 postcards and expired postcards are just 4.

How to start with postcrossing
Hello!

Today I’ll  tell  you an example how  to start writing a postcard.
Of course remember: everybody can write in their profile what  they want to read on your postcard and what kind of postcard they want to get from you.
In profile you can read about user, his hobbies, family, work. This is an example of profile on www.postcrossing.com:

“HELLO, ALL OF YOU!
My name is Esa, a male almost 60 and married, wife and three children.
When I was younger, I had a chance to travell a lot all around the world.
Now I am collecting all kind of angels, fairies and mermaids.
I like all kind of sports, especially figure-skating.
Also I like music, art and wild nature.
I am thankfull for every card I get, but especially I wish;
- Angels, fairies and mermaids
- Figure-skaters
- Beautifull women (Nicole Kidman) and girls
- Tigers and cats
- Sea and ships
- Sports all kind
- Asterix and Obelix
EVERYTHING GOOD IN FUTURE TO YOU!”

(Yes, yes… It’s Esa’s profile! Our friend from cold and snowy Finland! Greetings for you, Esa ? )
Like you see everybody has favourite kinds of postcards, but believe me: if you will send something different to a user he will be not angry! Every posctrossing’s user is happy every time when he finds postcard in his mailbox, so don’t worry if you can’t find poscard with  for example: colorful cars in our shops or something! You should send what you like ?
