  • Are these postcards framed? Matted? If delivered via slot, any special preferred way to identify them?

    • Not framed or matted. You should submit with your info, either on the card or along with them in an envelope. Also – we got rid of the 3 per artist limit! –Deb

  • Hi can we use our own 4×6
    Postcard or do we need to use the ones supplied

    • Hi Alysia, You may use your own support of any material. –Deb

  • Can it just be 4×6 photo on photo paper, or would the photo need to be placed on a postcard backing?

    • Hi Suzanne, Thanks for checking in. I would recommend putting it on some sort of backing if possible. We have free blanks available at the gallery. Then all you would need is some sort of adhesive, like double stick tape or a little bit of glue. If you;d like to pick up some blanks or chat in person we are open Wed-Sat 12-6pm.
