It looks like the thumbnails are properly working on both the website and the mobile site. Hooray! If you see any further issues, send us a line.

When we make promises, we keep them. Comments are up on all postcard posts! Feel free to leave your thoughts on your favorite (or most despised) postcards. And remember, keep it clean.

We’re running into some minor thumbnail layout issues. Pardon the appearance while we work through them. The good news is it’s only appearance, all the links appear to be working. If you come across a dead link or something else erroneous let us know at

Eventually we’ll have a commenting section up for the postcard pages. Sit tight!
