OUTSIDE GREETING: Hurrah for the Fourth of July


Hurrah for Uncle Sam, who adores fireworks! Back in its day, sending this postcard would have cost 1 cent domestically and 2 cents for international postage. Nowadays, you can send it as a greeting card with a domestic forever stamp, which, at the time of writing this, costs 68 cents. Sending mail is patriotic!

The Golden Age of Postcards, from the 1890s until World War I, witnessed an extraordinary surge in postcard collecting. This era saw the production, sale, and mailing of millions of postcards, and people acquired them simply for the sheer joy of ownership. These cherished cards found their place in carefully preserved albums or were exchanged among friends and family with the anticipation of receiving equally delightful ones in return. Postcards served as an affordable source of entertainment in nearly every American household. Visitors often marveled at the opulent postcard albums gracing parlors, living rooms, and sun porches. Beyond mere communication, picture postcards offered a vivid snapshot of American life, particularly during the initial decades of the 20th century. They were designed for every conceivable occasion, with a special emphasis on holidays!

This product was custom designed and created at our location in Seattle.
