Yes, I know. But the point of this meeting is to celebrate the 150th anniversary of the Postcard and join with more people.

Hi everybody,

There is only one month for our meeting and everything remains to be do it... :(

Since we'll be few, is it useful to create an illustrative postcard? If a specific postcard ia designed for the meeting, how many postcards would you like to purchase.

We need to decide until 8th september to have time to print the cards.

I have a surprise to announce you ...

I am very happy to announce that with the help of a friend, we have the image for the commemorative postcard.



Do you like it?
Who wants the commemorative postcard, how much do you want to order?

Hi everybody,

In addition to signing the postcards of the meeting and enjoy to get along a little, what would you most like to do?

My suggestion (if the weather is nice):
Leave City Hall, see / buy postcards in the streets attached to Notre Dame and the Latin Quarter, have lunch at any Latin Quarter restaurant and sign the postcards.

If the weather is fine (I doubt it), we could sign the postcards in the Luxembourg Garden, which is not that far away.

The special postcards are already in my hand and are very cute. Two-sided printing, in A6 (10 * 15) format, glossy finish.


I ordered 100 postcards (32 cents each) and I plan to use about 30 postcards. Therefore, I have 70 postcards available for those who participate in the event and want to send postcards commemorating the date.

Dear Tiago :P and everyone else in Paris,

We'd like to invite everyone organizing meetings around the 150th anniversary of postcards to do something a little bit extra on the day, if possible. :) Here are some suggestions:

- Broadcast a little video message from your meeting, either live or by recording a video and uploading it. For example, sing or wish the postcard a happy birthday, or show the world what your celebrations look like.

- Connect with another meetup happening simultaneously in another location, so that a small moment of connection can be established between the 2 groups of postcard enthusiasts! Remember to reach out to the respective meetup organizer beforehand, in order to exchange contacts and sort out a suitable time.

- Take pictures and share them with us! Tag them #150yearsofpostcards or send them to us on social media or via email, so that we can share them with the whole community. We would like everyone to feel included and to show the world what the celebrations of this special milestone look like.

Most of all, we hope you enjoy the event and this special day together — it's a birthday party, so remember to relax and have fun. :)

Good luck, and long live the postcard!
