The current weather has made "Wish You Were Here" a rather redundant sentiment but should you need to send a postcard, why not try a Timbergram?
Taking influence from early 1900s wooden postcards, Timbergrams are screen-printed by hand onto 3mm birch. This Good Egg design has retro style and humour in abundance; guaranteed to bring a smile with the morning mail even though the weather continues to disappoint.
For every 10 Timbergrams sold a tree is planted in Africa for Tree Aid too. They cost £3.95 from Bloomsbury & Co. You can buy them online here.
