A friend of mine was talking to a friend of hers the other day, and the topic turned to Santa Barbara Greeting Cards. The friend made a suggestion to include postcard stamps with the postcard sets. I thought about it… 12 postcard stamps comes to $4.20, which I could add to the cost of the sets. But then I started thinking that a lot of people who buy these may be visiting Santa Barbara from out of the country and wouldn’t necessarily be sending them to anyone in the U.S. In that case, it would be an extra cost with no added value. So I decided on a compromise… to try the idea of selling postcard stamps on the website as an optional add-on to purchases.
I ordered some blocks of 4 forever postcard stamps, but they came in sheets of 20. They are Forever stamps, so they will be good into the future. Purchasing extra individual postcards is another option for using the additional stamps. I may end up buying rolls, so that I can accommodate any desired quantity.
Thoughts on this idea are welcome, so feel free to leave a comment.
