American Airlines

Similar to several other cards in this gallery, this card is a great example of how companies successfully used post cards to advertise. This example, somewhat different than the others, features a more multi-purpose design.

While the logo and much of the text (particularly the note about "real travel" on the back of the card) exist to promote American Airlines, the personalized nature of the card suggests that this could also be used to document a trip for loved ones back home.

The sender is meant to sketch out the American Airlines flight that they took on the front of the card, thereby sharing their travels while simultaneously promoting the airline they used.
