3 Ways to Decorate with Postcards

It's as easy as ABC!


Given the technology, communicating with loved ones can be done with a press of a button, a click, a tap, and a reliable Internet connection. While these can be easier, there are days when you can't help but miss the charm and joy or receiving handwritten letters and postcards. Whether you want to revive the art of writing or you simply want to spruce up blank walls and dull areas at home, a few postcards can do the trick.

If you're looking for just the right tools, Summit Books has got you covered with Letters from ABC: 52 Postcards from A to Z, a collection of postcards designed by designer, workshop instructor, creative entrepreneur, and letterer Abbey Sy. The pretty postcards feature quotes representing each letter of the alphabet, with two copies for each design. 

Frame some of the copies and use it as decor with the help of these tips:

Utilize your vertical space

Spruce up a boring wall by displaying a couple of postcards—line them up and stick them to the wall using adhesives. For a more cohesive look, you can also frame each using white or colorful frames depending on the look that you want to achieve.

If you're planning to improve your work corner, you can simply stick your favorite postcards to a corkboard.

Get crafty with your books

Avoid using old receipts and crumpled pieces of paper as bookmarks! You can choose a postcard that matches the color of your book's cover and use it instead. 

Liven up a plain table

Got a dull work table? Make it interesting by storing and displaying postcards under the glass top. It's very easy to DIY and you can also create an organized grid.

Letters from ABC: 52 Postcards from A to Z is available in bookstores, on newsstands and convenience stores fpr P350. Follow Summit Books on Facebook for updates.
