Postcards are defined by the Society of American Archvists as "a card, commonly 4 × 6 inches, used for sending short messages through the mail". Postcards made after 1906 often have an illustration on one side. A real photo postcard (a.k.a. carte-de-visite) has a photographic image, as opposed to a picture postcard, which has a photomechanical or printed image.
