I have recently discovered that the search engine YAHOO apparently is sending some visitors to this page of the jesusistheanswer.cc web site instead of the first, title or index page. While the production of Albany post cards was a historic part of my life in the 1970's and 1980's, it is not the main purpose of the web site. Since the 1980's, I have discovered the love of Jesus Christ and want to help others in finding His love - hopefully at least partly through the information given in other areas of this web site.
If you are questioning your need for Jesus, or have questions about the name of this site, I would encourage you to go to the main page and check out any link that doesn't refer to the section "personal" which is where you are now.
If you want to see the Albany post cards that I produced in the 1970's and 1980's with links to printing and historical details, you have reached the correct page, and you should just scroll down for the information that you were looking for. Thanks!
From 1973 through 1986, I produced and distributed quite a few post cards of the Albany, New York area using the name Avis Post Card Co. I thought that some of you may be interested in seeing what they looked like, and shown are more statistics than you may have ever wanted!
Apparently my scanner is showing moiré and I don't know if it will show on these illustrations.
Below is a thumbnail of each post card. To see a larger photo, click on the thumbnail (like most other pictures on this web site); however, it could take a while to download the photos as they are large. For additional information about the illustrated card, click on its name.
All of these cards are currently available for sale on my eBay store. You may look at the store by following this link: http://stores.ebay.com/Avis-Collectibles
