keeping + storing my postcard collection

postcards, tips on postcard collecting

I’ve heard numerous kinds of ways of how people store their precious postcard collection. Some would organize them in different boxes according to theme + then store these boxes, one on top of the other in a cool + well-ventilated storage cabinet. Some would go to too much trouble of wrapping each lovely postcard with non-acidic films or cellophane before pasting them onto sheets of paper + then organizing these sheets into clear folders. I don’t have the time to do this with my little collection, but I kind of liked the idea of storing them in boxes where I can easily marvel + sift through them whenever I feel the urge to, so a box that would fit them all nicely sounds like the best idea I’ve ever heard of. In fact, I have transferred my collection to several boxes until I settled with this bigger one that I am using now.

The only problem is I cannot lag this box onto my eco-bag whenever I travel to meet up with my swap buddies, can I? It was a good thing my sister found these lovely photo albums in the bookstore one time {my sisters are photo enthusiasts like me + loves to keep their photos organized in albums, too!}, I bought a 5″x7″ variety for my postcards! I excitedly arranged the postcards onto the album when I got home + viola my map card collection, as well as the official postcards are neatly tucked in there, ready to leave in a second’s notice for our next meet-up, which I guess will be sometime next month! 🙂

Me + my postcard collection are good with the box + the photo album, but if you have a better idea on how to keep + store you postcard collection, I’d be happy to hear about it! 😉

    This is one good IDEA! I am currently thinking of having a wooden box for the postcards I have.. But I think this one is better. Problem is, i have some postcards that actually are bigger than the size 5×7.. 🙂

    Anyways.. happy post crossing!! 🙂

      those are the postcards I left in my box! ^_^ but i will be needing a couple more of these albums so that I can put all the postcards, if i could i would organize them into themes or country of origin, too, if i find the time! ^_^

      happy postcrossing! ^_^
