Deltiology as a hobby may not be very popular today. There are many reasons to practice deltiology as your hobby, one of the main reasons is that it is less expensive than many other related hobbies. It’s also available in thousands of different subjects. 


You could select your own favorite theme to collect like the nation or country theme, building themes, and more.

Deltiology as a hobby also helps the collectors to exchange theirs with others from different parts of the world. To exchange it, you could write the message on the postcard and keep it after which it becomes a collection for someone you exchange with.


It is good to exchange something more than just an email. It helps you to have many friends around the world.


How to collect it?

The first and the most important aspect is for you to know how to preserve your cards from any damage. Avoid to use the cheap sleeves and do not expose your collection to sunlight. If it is difficult to find a postcard, you can search it online.


How about the stamp on it?
