Postcard Collector Folds, Will Stop Collecting Dust in Your Apartment

postcardcollector082808.jpgWe received an email sent to contributors of F+W Publications’ Postcard Collector by editor Sandra Sparks announcing that the magazine will fold with its November/December issue.

Subscribers will now receive sister publication Antique Trader instead. The magazine will “feature even more coverage of postcard collecting than before.”

On PC‘s Web site, there’s an offer to receive a year’s subscription to the magazine. That’s $19.98 we’d advise you to spend somewhere else.

Sparks’ email is after the jump.

Dear Contributor:

The Magazine Group at F+W Publications frequently reviews and revises its publishing strategy, taking into consideration the current and future marketplace, circulation and advertising revenue, to assure that we are meeting Company and customer needs.

Regrettably, after weighing key factors, the Company has determined that we will cease publication of Postcard Collector with the November/December 2008 issue. We, along with everyone here, would like to thank you for your support of the magazine.

Postcard Collector readers’ subscriptions will be fulfilled through its sister publication, Antique Trader, which will feature even more coverage of postcard collecting than before. Antique Trader, which has been published for more than 50 years, publishes 40 issues per year.

You have provided our readers a consistent supply of instruction and inspiration. Thank you again for your many contributions to the magazine. It has been our great pleasure to work with you over the years, and we wish you the very best.


Sandra Sparks
