One of my friends who lives on the other coast is going through some serious medical stuff. I've been sending him cheesy postcards with stupid stuff written on them, just to let him know I'm thinking of him and to maybe give him a laugh. I'm out of ideas though. Give me your best jokes/puns/groaners that I can fit on a postcard! They can be off-color if they're sufficiently funny. Any topic welcome.
I'm working on a construction project where we need to notify anywhere from 1 to 50 or so households at a time of work happening near their homes. Distributing flyers consumes a significant part of staff time, so we'd like to create and mail custom postcards for each work location. What's the best way to go about this? [more inside]
Interior design filter: We have a bunch (15-20) of cool postcards that we'd like to display. In our old apartment, there was a narrow (maybe 20") wall next to our desks that worked really well to "frame" the postcard collection, but in our new apartment, our only viable wall is like 20 feet long, which makes it look weird to put up a handful of postcards. Assuming that we are neither crafty nor inclined to spend tons of money (no custom framing), what's the best way to show off our postcards? Something nicer-looking than a bulletin board would be good.

My little brother is currently in jail, and will likely be staying there or in a similar facility for quite a while. He is only allowed to receive postcards, and softcover books mailed from Amazon or B&N. If either of these items violate the byzantine regulations (details contained within), they will not reach him. What are some creative things that are basically just pieces of paper (no paint, stickers, double layers, etc) I can send as postcards? What are some books that won’t be taken away for sex, drug, gang, etc content you’d recommend for a 23 year old male who never really read for pleasure, recently earned his GED, and likes Hunter S. Thompson? [more inside]

Museum stores and art print retailers (e.g. art.com) sell reproductions of art in many forms. These include archival-quality prints, postcards, coffee mugs, t-shirts and so on. But sometimes I see a painting in a museum and I can't find any reproductions of it. What determines which pieces of art are available for reproduction and at what price? [more inside]

I'm looking to buy around 150 postcards from the 50s - 70s that feature attractions from Route 66, or that highlighting Route 66 generally or the states along the way. Are there any stores in either New York City or Washington DC that sell that sort of thing?

Is there somewhere better online I should be looking into?

If you got a postcard about a seminar like this at your business, what would make you read it rather than throw it away?
