What are your thoughts on sending belated postcards?
I know I cannot be the only one that has good intentions to send post cards on a trip, only to run out of time or postage, or some combination of those and other reasons. So, the thought occurred to me, can we send them a bit late? Is it a case of where it is better late than never to send a post card? Sure, it loses some of its novelty, postmark, etc. Still, wouldn't you rather receive one late, than never? I would! Curious your thoughts, even if and maybe especially if you think it is a stupid idea. Thanks!
It's better to receive a post card late then to not get one at all. At least I know the person thought of me. Either way, sending a post card is a nice gesture.
I agree that sending a post card is a very nice gesture. I say go ahead and send it when you get home. Just don't send it months afterward! lol
This was a very timely question for me as I just got back from a trip with my postcards written, addressed and stamped, but with not enough postage to mail. So I added the correct postage and mailed them from home. I think it depends on where the postcards are going. If I had postcards for my neighbors or local friends, I wouldn't have sent them from home. But mine were going to grandkids and relatives in other states, and I knew they would still be appreciated. Obviously, it would have been nice to have the postmark of the state they represented, but they didn't.

More and more people are sending greetings online via email or using electronic cards or social media pages or even mobile phones. Have you stopped sending cards the old fashioned way?
