Well, I receive a lot of cards which look somehow worn after their travel from overseas. That is bad for the picture but in some sense makes the cards also more interesting because it contributes to the feel about how far the card is coming from. So in my opinion this is also a bit of the fun. And this is the reason why I send my own card to myself via the post office. It is more authentic
