The Sims 4 Postcard Collecting Guide

Postcards List, Pen Pals, and Hints for Finding Rares

>Postcards may be collected by finding Pen Pals on the Computer and requesting them. Simply go to the Socialize menu on the Computer, then Find a Pen Pal. After several hours, check for responses. You may get a Pen Pal from Bridgeport, Sunset Valley, or other locale. Then, write to that Pen Pal. After a short time, you can ask for a Postcard from that location. You may have a number of Pen Pals at once, and it may take several tries asking for a Postcard to get one in the mail (especially for the Rares). When displayed in the home and with auras enabled, these can make Sims Inspired. They are thus perfect for Writers, Artists and Chefs to have in their respective work areas. Postcard corkboard may be purchased that will allow you to organize these on the wall, and with all 14 you will get an Inspired +2 Aura in that work area.

See the Collecting Guide for general tips to finding these and other Collections in The Sims 4.

I love sims so much it is absolutely awesome I am sooooooo obsessed.
Diehard simmer696says...
I once found a postcard rummaging through garbage bins at the park
Admin: Great tip! Thanks.
Not sure why but I only able to get 13 postcards I request another penpal but keep getting no reply this has been since 3 patches ago I have tried repairing game but doesn't help. Is this a bug since patch..
I couldn't see any bug reports so chances are you've simply missed asking for a specific postcard from the penpals. Run through the list above to see which one you are missing and see if that option is available on your sims pc.
I have all except dragon valley & don't have it on list to write to or ask for postcard from.
Keep using the PC to ask for pen pals and it will appear eventually.
This exact situation is happening to me. I keep asking for a pen pal and instead of the usual "waiting on reply's" it continues to allow me the function of asking for a pen pal. Dragon Valley is the last one and I don't think it can be had from the pen pal function. Maybe like someone else said, it can be found through rummaging or exploring? I can't find anything online.

Same here! The "Find a Pen Pal" is infinite on the last one and for me, I am stuck with not getting Isla Paradiso. It's the only one that I'm missing and I cannot get the check for replies interaction anymore, so I am completely stuck and have no clue how to get out of this loop

Spoke too soon: Here is a trouble shooting link that confirms that Dragon Valley PC is bugged:

How do you know when your pen pal has replied to your letter?


Get your Sim to check on the PC/laptop

If you have seasons the bees can sometimes bring you Postcards. I have gotten 2 of them that way.
