Post Cards

One of the more interesting aspects of Ukrainian philately is the use of postal post cards. They are extensively used in Ukraine. Since independence, there has been a steady increase in this method of sending best wished during various festive periods of the year.

The post cards put out by the Ukrainian Postal authorities are quite interesting in their subject matter and graphic design. They are used to send best wishes for

  • Valentine's Day,

  • Mother's Day (March 8),

  • Easter Celebrations,

  • World War II Victory Celebrations,

  • Birthdays,

  • Christmas Celebrations,

  • Happy New Year, and

  • Tourist scenes.

  • In most cases, these postcards are either photographs or animated drawings.
