The " White Border " card was the next popular style. In White Border cards the view was " framed " by a solid white border. These postcards were produced between 1916 through the early 1930s. It is difficult to identify these cards on our site for two reasons. First of all, on a typical card thatís seventy or eighty years old, " white "+ " border " = damage. Many times we simply crop a white border off the card for display purposes. Typically, in the production process a new and clean white border will be added back. Secondly, the white of the border blends nicely with the beige of our " AmericanPostcardArt.com " frames, and makes it difficult to see.
Linen postcards: The cards that are really colorful are usually linens. You can tell a linen because you can actually see the raised grain of the original card on our images. Linens were produced from the early thirties through the late forties. We print our linens on canvas so to try to capture the texture of the original.
