Maxicard from Australia

AU-482016

I got this postcard as the official Postcrossing card just a few days ago, all the way from Australia. I swear to you, I was a 100% sure it was my first maxicard ever – I even asked a friend of mine, “It has a stamp on the front side… Do these have a name?” #awkward

Since then I learned that:
a) This definitely ISN’T my first maxicard – I find three more in my collection, all coming from Australia. (Now, of course, I’m curious why Aussies like sending them so much. I’ve heard the postage rates in Australia are rather high so I’m curious whether this type of cards is more affordable – you get a cute postcard with postage already paid – but I honestly have no clue about the price of these things so I can’t tell.)

b) There is an entire post on the Postcrossing blog dedicated to maxicards (CLICK HERE!) and their history and all the interesting facts… and I have never seen it before. Better late then never, I know. ;)

c) I swear, I have no clue if Croatia even has these maxicards available. XD

  1. I’m not sure if I have ever received a maxicard or if we have them here in the US. I don’t quite “get it”. Is there postage on the back of the card also?

    1. No, it only says “Postage pre-paid Australia // for posting in Australia and delivery worldwide”. No actual stamp on the back, only the stamp in fronf of the postcard that also matches the actual postcard.
      I though it was rather odd, but since then I have discovered that even Croatia has maxicards. I’ve never actually seen one with my own two eyes and I have no clue what I’d ask for in the post office if I wanted to buy it… but they do exist. :D
