A variety of clever rubber stamps can be used to make the backside of your fabric postcards (FPC) special.

Stamped images can be used on fabric or cardstock.

You can also use stamped images as a faux cancellation mark, a faux stamp, or as a mailing template to line up your message and address lines.


If you use faux postage in the upper corner of your FPC back, along with a clear cellophane envelope, try to cover over it on outside - with a real postal stamp.   Sometimes, I stamp “fake” postage on a FPC when I am planning to mail it in an opaque envelope with official postage stamps on the exterior.

There are textile inks, specially made for stamping fabrics.  Some require setting the ink with a medium heat pressing.  But since your postcards are not wearable and washable, this heat-set might not be necessary.

Have fun perking-up your fabric postcards with rubber stamps!
