The application of heraldry.

I am quite often called upon to give a very brief written (postal) response to an heraldic or family genealogical question and so for quite some time now I have been toying with the idea of having some postcards printed with my arms on the image side. Having explored the cost of this, I found it to be relatively expensive and so the idea fell into abeyance.

Earlier this month it occurred to me that my broadband provider has a number of perks, one of which is the ability to automatically back up ones computer files onto their mainframe at regular intervals along with online storage of images. Included with this is the ability to have 50 photos professionally printed off free of charge each month (the first three months post and packaging was also free). Unless you are an absolute photo enthusiast, eventually the desire to have ones photos printed off wains and the perk becomes forgotten. I decided to take advantage of the offer once more and had fifty of the same image printed off onto a postcard sized photo. I paid less than a pound sterling for postage and today they arrived. I shall use them as glossy postcards or postal notes for those quick replies.

A quick and inexpensive application of heraldry.

Marvelous  :)
