  • Close up would only work when viewing the listing. Don't think there would be any way to make it work within an email.
  • i cut snd paste directly from the order page to an Avery template and it does what you are asking except for having to make one "enter stroke" to get the locality down to the third line. Where are you copying from ???
  • I will not buy a card that does not show the back - same with covers on hipstamps
  • I would suggest showing all cards front and back. Most postcards went through many iterations and a view of the back identifies which it might be for the advanced collector, as well as overall condition. I have passed on hundreds of cards here due …
  • That is odd, both Hippostcard and Hippstamp have always responded. Did you check your spam filter? I've had that happen a couple of times.
  • There has been a noticeable drop in most prices over the past couple of years in postcards, stamps, postal history, ephemera, antiquarian books, antique furniture, tchotchkes, antique automobiles, etc. In most instances it has heavily affected the…
  • "Not for the thin items. It has to be a real thick package and that is not a postcard " What exactly are you mailing that Paypal does not allow you to print a label for ???? I ship stay flats either as first class non-machinable (around $1.00) whic…

  • Thanks for the info - was hoping it would work on covers - oh well ...
  • What do you put the cards in to run through the feed?
  • I'm not sure that date is that important - I put it in the title if known or if it's an early Private Mailing Card but I think most people can see by looking if it's UB, DB, WB, linen, chrome or real photo. You're showing both sides of the card. Peo…
  • I've noticed the same thing. I've even listed a tiny bit of ephemera on here to no avail. The strange thing is when we were allowed to list postcards (and a bit of ephemera) on the old Bidstart and Stampwants platforms they sold quite well. A lot of…
  • Unfortunately pages seem designed by 20 somethings who have no concept of the visual acuity of anyone over the age of 50. Now that I know where to look I can see the light gray boxes but cannot read them unless I sweep to highlight them. Very poor d…
