How It Works
We curate the best postcard sets on the market to send you a varied mix of beautiful cards every month.
All subscriptions include enough postage to send your cards anywhere in the U.S., including extra postage for any oversized cards in your shipment.
Paying it forward.
For every new subscriber, we'll send a handwritten postcard to a nursing home resident, foster child, or someone else who could use a little more connection in their life.
We hand-pick the best postcards on the market based on design, paper quality, and variety
You'll get bright, vibrant colors, designs that any recipient will love, and sturdy cardstock that won't bend in the mail.
People Love Our Postcards

Frequently Asked Questions
It’s super-easy! Each month you or your chosen recipient will receive a curated assortment of three, five, or ten unique postcards from a myriad of premium postcard sets hand-picked for their designs, paper quality, and variety. Each shipment includes enough postage to send your postcards anywhere in the U.S. (to send internationally, you’ll simply need to add your own postage to the stamps provided).
Don’t worry! Postcards make amazing gift tags, recipe cards, office memos, notes to self, bookmarks, and grocery lists. You can even frame your favorite designs to hang on your wall! And like a Forever stamp, great postcards never expire—simply stash them with the rest of your writing supplies for the next time the urge to send one strikes.
We send orders out on the 10th of every month, and most people should receive their postcards within a few business days. We support the U.S. Postal Service by sending all subscriptions with stamps via USPS, and while we can’t provide monthly tracking information, we’ve never had a shipment go missing. If for some reason you don’t receive your cards in a timely manner, please let us know and we’ll be happy to send a replacement set.
No problem—it’s as easy to stop as it is to sign up. From your subscription dashboard, you can choose to pause for a month or two while you finish using the postcards you already have, or you can cancel your subscription completely at any time. If you forget to cancel by the first of the month (our monthly billing date), don’t worry about it—we purposely leave a grace period between our billing and shipping days every month, giving you plenty of time to get a refund if you forget to cancel on time or just change your mind.
Of course! Postcards make thoughtful gifts at a great price point for friends, family, coworkers, and more. Just click subscribe and add the gift recipient’s mailing address when prompted (your billing information and emails will be kept completely separate). By giving postcards rather than more “stuff,” you’re giving the gift of human connection (which we happen to think is pretty priceless).
You can buy postcards individually from The Postcard Maven anytime!
At this time my website only supports shipping to U.S. addresses, but I am working to add international shipping in the near future. If you live in another country and are interested in ordering postcards, please drop me a line—not only will I work on adding service to your location, we may also be able to get creative to get you some postcards in the meantime!
