About Postcards from us

This site is run by Andy and Elena Hoang. We decided to give up our 9-5 jobs in London in August 2013 to travel the world. Both of us really like making and sending postcards, and you can receive one from us as we travel Just don’t make us go back to work to do so!
We either buy our postcards pre-printed, or handmade, or we make them individually ourselves. We will personally write a message to you or your chosen recipient on the back.
We like sending postcards, but we got fed up of paying for them all! We love to share but we don’t want to have to work too hard. We’re on holiday!
In the longer term, we’re looking to work with local artists and charities to source some really cool local postcards and to learn about the cultures that we travel in through the art of the people who live there
The original Postcards from Us, are made and sent by Andy and Elena from wherever we are in the world.
As we travel we’ll be meeting with some local postcard artists and featuring some of their work on the site. Our artists section shows their work off and we give them all the proceeds from sales.
There are many charity organisations that make postcards to sell but only sell them locally. We aim to give them a global audience and sales. Go to our shop and pick up some postcards today for a good cause with all the different tools we provide.
