Welcome to the digital site of the FSU Card Archive, available through the support of the Rhetoric and Composition Program at Florida State University. This archive--which includes postcards and stereocards from the late 19th to the early 21st centuries—(re)presents various social and cultural values, some of which may be different from our own; however, we believe it is important to preserve these examples of everyday writing for academic purposes. The focal point of the archive is several thousand postcards that we have collected, preserved, and made digitally searchable across several metadata fields (e.g., date, place, image, genre, publisher, etc.). Here are some core values of this archive:

We invite you to spend some time in the site. The cards can be accessed through the search functions or by browsing items, exhibits, collections, and timelines. Please feel free to contact us at fsucardarchive@gmail.com if you need help or if you want additional access to the site. Check back frequently since new cards are being added to the site each month.
