1.  WHO ARE WE?

Old Postcards has been in business since 2004.  We are based in the North West of England on the beautiful Wirral peninsula and our aim is to provide a first class service to our customers at all times. Previously we traded on a large well known auction site, with 100% positive feedback - you can check it elsewhere on this site.

No - this is entirely optional and is not required in order to buy from us.  

4.  WHERE DO YOU SHIP TO?

Our cards are sent all over the world; they are sent in their own individual plastic sleeve inside a rigid board backed envelope, with the postcard facing towards the back to maximise protection from the postal process.  Cards are sent out immediately cleared payment is received - often the same day.
