Postcard Records is a Glasgow-based independent record label founded by Alan Horne in 1979, as a vehicle for Orange Juice and Josef K releases. The label's motto was "The Sound of Young Scotland", a parody/tribute to the Motown motto. Its logo featured a cartoon cat beating a drum.
The labels were all different on one side, with a picture or drawing.
Records 80 1 to 80 6 were all in limited edition picture sleeves originally, or in company sleeves #1 or #2.
