This digital project contains a selection of materials from the North Carolina Collection’s postcard collections, including at least one image for each of North Carolina’s one hundred counties. Staff members at the North Carolina Collection encourage users to check back regularly to view the latest images, as they will continue to add postcards to the digital collection. Every postcard in North Carolina Postcards is described using a standard set of descriptive fields, which are described below. The Title of the postcard is most often taken directly from the front of the postcard. In a few instances, the title comes from information on the back of the card. Whenever a title is supplied by the library, it is given in brackets. The Caption field contains everything that is printed not handwritten on the back of the card, with the exception of extremely common phrases such as “Post Card,” “Place Stamp Here” and “Address on this Side. Later postcards have more descriptive information about the picture on the front.

An immigrant from Germany, Curt Teich came from a printing and publishing family. By , the Teich Company became involved with the postcard industry. That same year Teich returned to Germany to learn about innovative German methods of high-volume printing. In , the tariffs imposed on the import of postcards printed in Germany upended companies whose business models depended on German printers to meet the demand for postcards.

Some companies like Rotograph went out of business. Others looked to printers in the United States. One such company was the Hugh C. Leighton Company of Portland Maine. Fearing the increased cost of German imports, Leighton contracted with Teich to print a new series of cards with around 1, views. That same year Teich introduced a new printing technique, offset lithography which allowed them to produce larger runs more rapidly.

The majority of the postcards associated with Canada and Caroga Lakes were Teich products. Production numbers included on the cards allow us to date the cards and to group them in different series. The first series with production numbers from A A were most likely printed in and show views of Canada and Caroga Lakes.
