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 since 2004. The business is owned and run by myself, Mrs Tyne Henney-Scrafton. I am a member of the Postcard Traders Association, the mark of fair trading. Full contact details further down this page.
2. IS YOUR WEBSITE SECURE?
Yes, we use the prefix https - the 's' stands for 'secure' - which means that the session between the web server and the browser you are using is encrypted.
3. DO I NEED TO OPEN AN ACCOUNT WITH YOU IN ORDER TO BUY?
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. UPDATE: PLEASE NOTE - DUE TO THE CORONAVIRUS PANDEMIC WE HAVE HAD TO TEMPORARILY SUSPEND SHIPPING TO SOME COUNTRIES OUTSIDE THE UK. THIS COULD CHANGE DAILY DUE TO CORONAVIRUS AFFECTING THE POSTAL SERVICES IN THOSE COUNTRIES. IN ADDITION, FOLLOWING BREXIT, THERE MAY BE DELAYS TO EU COUNTRIES DUE TO CUSTOMS CHECKS. PLEASE CONTACT US IF YOU FIND YOU CANNOT ORDER FROM US AND WE WILL TRY TO HELP.

No. we don't charge extra as we don't believe that is right.
