I’ve seen some presses who are selling post-cards of poems and thought why not make some of my own? So long as you have card stock or something sturdier than a sheet of regular paper, you should be able to cute a sheet of paper down to postcard size. For example, you could find a short poem you’ve written, place it in a word document and copy it four times (use the columns feature to make it easier) and print then cut into fourths, and Ta-Da! You have just made four poetic post-cards to send to family and friends or fans of your poems.
I just made some up myself and ordered .27 cent stamps from http://www.usps.com/ because a small post-card only costs .27 cents to send. Isn’t that marvelous? Have fun, and remember that anyone can read your post cards as they go through the mail so you may drum up some new fans unexpectedly. Again, isn’t that marvelous?
I’ve decided to send some sample bundles to a few family members to get their insight into the idea since it could be used as a holiday gift-giving project. Good luck to those of you who try it out!
