About us

Thank you for visiting Past Time Postcards & Prints. I first started trading postcards on ebay in 2006 as an extension of an interest in collecting local topographical postcards attending postcard fairs etc. This interest in deltiology (the study and collection of postcards) developed over time into the small online enterprise it has become today. 


We specialise in Postcards and have a large stock of topographical and themed or subject cards. We have expanded our inventory to include Antique & Vintage Prints, Photographs, Cigarette & Trading Cards and all manner of Paper Collectables Ephemera.


Useful Information


Postage & Packaging
Postage rates are calculated to include postage and packaging. All Postcards, Prints and Cigarette or Trade Cards are posted in protective plastic sleeves then in a Board Backed Envelope. Prints and Full Sets of Cigarette Trade Cards have an additional stiffner board for added security and protection. Prints larger than A4 size will be dispatched in postal tubes for added safety and protection. We will always combine postage when you purchase multiple items. 


Payment Methods
Our preferred method of payment is through Paypal.


UK CUSTOMERS: can make payment by Paypal, Personal Cheque or Postal Order. PLEASE NOTE: Credit cards included in PayPal payment method inc Visa, MasterCard, American Express.


FOR CUSTOMERS OUTSIDE THE UK: we can only accept Paypal as method of payment. PLEASE NOTE: Credit cards included in PayPal payment method inc Visa, MasterCard, American Express.


100% Satisfaction
Please remember if in the unlikely event you are unhappy with the item you have purchased on the basis that the postcard was incorrectly described or graded we do offer a complete refund less the cost of postage and packaging once the item is returned to us.
