Early Postcards


In my first year in business, I had a lot of time on my hands, and spent as much as possible on self promotion. I sent out a lot of black and white postcards this year, researching all the names myself using reference books and pulling names and addresses out of mastheads at the library, and then hand typing and printing labels and licking a lot of stamps. These two went out in October of this first year and according to notes scribbled on the back, I sent out 350 of the cartoon image above, and 500 of the caricature postcard pictured below.
