We are a bit late this week with posting The Postcard Cure – it has everything to do with the fact that it is VERY hard to choose the favourites of 2013. Going through the new cards of this year also brought back some of our highlights and well, as we all know when you start thinking about memories, you get lost in time… So, we decided to make a part 1 and 2 of our favourites. This week our favourite new Cardcetera Cards in 2013 and next week our favourite new postcards from other publishers. We also decided to make this a special The Postcard Cure – as these are the last ones of 2013. There is now a special page in our store where you can find all the cards that are part of the favourites of 2013.
In 2013, we added two new series to our Cardcetera Cards brand. We started with The French Connection: 8 cards inspired by Astrids love for France and more in particular Paris. The postcards have a full colour back and front – the back is designed by Kris; famous for her wonderfull By Kris postcards. You all seem to like to cards as much as we do and they were also added to the assortiment of some other webshops – a new milestone for us! After that, we of course wanted to introduce a Dutch set as well as after all we are a Dutch company and we want the Dutch Postcrossing community to be able to send out something nice! We had a photo-competition for the first picture, that was won by Sandra de Haan, and around the day our new Dutch king was crowned, we introduced The Dutch Connection to you – another set with a full colour back and front, with the back again being designed by Kris. And these cards were also added to other webstores – another milestone!
But we also published new cards in our general collection of Cardcetera Cards. With that series, we want to publish a collection of cards you can buy in advance and send on as many occasions as possible – because we believe there are 101 reasons to send postcards! If you have some cards at home all the time that you can send on any occasion, it is much easier to send them out when you think of a reason yourself or want to send one out when we post a new reason 🙂 We added new cards to our popular series of Cats-postcards; all of the images on those cards are made by the talented Els Oostveen. We also added cards to the serie Dinning and we started a new theme: Seasons.
With all these new postcards in our own collection, it was hard to choose only a few of them. We decided to combine our personal favourites with the cards you have been buying the most – as those are propably your favourites. So here is our selection of 8 cards from our own collection, published in 2013. We choose 2 from The French Connection, 2 from The Dutch Connection and 4 of our general cards. From now untill January 5 they are available with almost a 50% discount! A little gift for you at the end of 2013 🙂
Next week we will be adding 8 cards from other publishers to the collection of Favourites of 2013! Have a favourite? Drop us a line and who knows we might add it!
