No color i.e markers, or crayons. I believe they started the no fancy cards now and I would send my fiancť up to 30 pics at a time and heíd get them (I used Pigeonly).

I was told about the cards but I couldnít figure out what they meant.... A normal folded card is allowed right? No glitters and stuff on it.

I never wrote on the back of my pictures and my love always got all the pictures no matter how many I sent in one sitting. I used a website to send them. Never heard the writing the name and number on each picture.

So, Iím amusing really soon.
