When I visited friends in Hamburg last year, I took quite a lot of pictures of their hometown. Later that month I bought a little Canon Selphy postcard printer that I’d seen at a photography workshop and liked instantly.
In picmonkey I created a picture that contained only the postcard lettering and the place stamp here icon that you can see below. I printed those on labels that looked about the same size as the postcards.
The labels turned out not to be the exact size of the postcards, so I had to cut a little bit off on the bottom of each label. Then I stuck a label on the back of each postcard. Note to self: next time create a frame around the label that’s the exact size of the postcard instead of having to use a box cutter to do the fine tuning…
As you can see, this did not turn out perfect, but I felt it was a good start. The taping didn’t look as professional as I would have liked, and I only had a mixed assortment of maki tape, so I’ll probably be on the lookout for some neutral coloured ones. Now that I know what I’d do differently next time, though, I’m looking forward to making an improved version.
