6 Postcard Displays That We LOVE
Before we begin, we just wanted to give a big shout out to all who participated in our #PostSwapWithLoka initiative (it’s still ongoing by the way!). We’ve been overwhelmed by your responses and we’re so grateful for each and every one of them 🥰
Thank you for trusting us with your stories, wisdom and hopes! Much like Loka, we look forward to opening our mailbox everyday. Reading each and every one of your postcards makes us feel like we’ve been living a hundred different lives - all from the comfort of our studio.
Now that we have collected so many beautiful postcards and messages, we’ve been on the lookout for creative ways to display them all! We searched high and low for ways to showcase each of their unique designs and colourful stories. We felt like we needed to do them justice because they were all so special and meaningful to us.
So, we thought of sharing some of our favourite display ideas with you! Just in case you too, wanted to show off your stellar collection. Without further ado, let’s begin!

Stay inspired throughout your day with a tabletop display! Just arrange your postcards on a table surface and cover it up with a glass (or plexiglass) sheet to keep it safe from stains and damage.
Wall art display
Create your own wall art by sticking postcards with wall-safe tapes! Alternatively, you can also use washi tape (to avoid ruining your walls). You can get creative and arrange them in various shapes and patterns - or make your own feature wall!

Hang them up with string and a wooden peg

You’ll have to knock in some nails for this one. Once you’ve done that, tie a wool string around them and secure your postcards with a wooden peg. You can even get creative and make geometric shapes for an added flair!

Or even swap the wool string for fairy lights for a more magical atmosphere.
Curated coffee table book
Keep your guests occupied with your postcard collection in the A6 Size Postcard Album! Its highly transparent pockets allow for easy viewing while keeping them absolutely safe from stains, water or tear. Alternatively, you can use the A6 Size Ring Binder Postcard Album which allows you to refill the pockets when you run out of space.

Hang up your favourites in photo frames! Have one-too-many postcards? Opt for a shadowbox display! Compile your postcards and put them into a shadowbox as pictured below. You can easily compile and arrange your collection based on countries, themes, year received, or just mix them all together. Rojak more fun, right? 😛
