A postcard has a standard size of 4 x 6 in. One side of the paper will be a picture, photograph, or pasted picture, with or without a message or description printed on the card and intended to be sent by post without an envelope. The other side is divided into 2 parts:
1.The section for sender to input their name and address.
2.The section for a short message.
The postcard form that commemorates the important historical events may be of value to collectors. Postcards that are popular for collecting include images of important people, athletes, politicians, actors and celebrities, images of various places, landscapes, cities, or rural villages.
The paper commonly used for producing postcards is 300 gsm, single-sided art paper, suitable for postcards where one side is an area for writing messages with a pen. If it is a picture postcard with no text, you can use general art paper. For watercolor postcard work, we highly recommend the paper that has texture, which will capture the essence and beauty of the artwork.
The Charm of Postcards
Most of the postcards we send to each other express good feelings from far away. Most recipients or readers will "secretly smile" at the corners of their mouths because they receive good feelings from the writer. The postcard itself is bare, it is as if postgard spreads good feelings to those who see them.
The First Postcard of Siam
Postcards in Siam were created at the end of the reign of King Rama V. The originator was Robert Lenz, a clever German who printed postcards to sell. Later, the administrator, J.Antonio, an Italian, took photographs of Bangkok and various cities, they got a lot of these, so they made some postcards to sell, and there was a change during the reign of King Rama VI. An unknown Japanese person printed them out and sold them, by that time, some Asians who had a trading head during the reign of King Rama VII, unknown Thai people started to print them out to sell. Their address is all over the world, their status is valuable, has a price, and is given away for free. After doing some research, the first postcard that has been properly certified, was from the government of Hungary. The first time that postcards were traded are in England and Germany. The first postcards appeared in 1874 and the first postcard image printed in four colors was an image of the Eiffel Tower in 1889.
