Special thank you goes to the coordinator of the category, tuixons. You did an amazing job at taking care of this sweet category.

Benjamin Eisenstadt, the founder of Cumberland Packing, invented sugar packets because he was working for a tea factory and got tired of refilling and unclogging sugar dispensers in his cafeteria.

Today there are many different shapes of sugar packets all around the world for collectors to collect. Collecting sugar packets is called sucrology.

Most common places to find sugar packets are restaurants and hotels, but in some countries where sucrology is common many companies are producing sugar packets and selling them. In Europe, there are many collector clubs dedicated to sugar packets, some of them even hosting international events for fellow sucrologists to gather together.

Thank you to coordinators Vadym Sulimenko [Dravec] and Grzegorz Pająk [quarteris] and everyone else who contributed to making it happen. You guys are doing an amazing job at making Colnect better.

The postcard is a piece of thin paper which makes it possible to write and mail without using envelopes. Did you know that the study and collecting of postcards are called deltiology? Deltiologists collect postcards for various reasons. Some are just attracted to postcards, while others are trying to collect postcards with some specific theme

Several different uses were found for postcards other than its original one. Many schools are using postcards as the way of teaching geography and also postcards are used by libraries and historical societies to determine how a certain city used to look like at a particular time in history.
