After completing the “Back to Reality” quest in Chapter 1 you’ll gain entrance into the Survival Camp interior.
Cross the camp to find a small bar with a yellow exterior. Check out the counter across from the entrance doors to find this card next to a whiskey bottle.
Continuing southeast from the Paradise Survivor’s Camp, you’ll reach a camping ground west of Halai village.
Circle around the eastern house and jump over the debris blocking the door to find this postcard inside on a table.
Near the east entrance to Halai Village, you’ll find a hut with a workbench and NPC named Makayla inside. Jump in and collect the card on a table to the right.
Travel to the outpost north of the river village in the center of the map. The Breri Outpost is built above the ground, just use the fallen tree to reach the upper level.
There’s a shack on the hanging platform. The card is located in the corner of the room.
Located inside one of the northern homes in Mataka Village, the little river town in the center of the map. To gain entrance, you’ll need to take on the “Natural Resources” quest.
The quest is given by Hadis in Mataka Village, near the building you need to enter. After giving the cure and speaking with Batram, you’ll gain access to Marcus’ hut. The card is inside.
In Halai Village, the town stretches over the water to reach two smaller islands. One building over the water has a boardwalk circling it, looking out over the water and just west of the large of the two small islands.
The building is painted blue. Circle around the walkway to find a small table with a yellow plate. The card is right next to the plate.
During the “Hidden Data” quest you’ll be tasked with entering Nick’s House. Inside, enter the bathroom through the back right door and look on the table to find the seventh postcard.
Just out front of the Bank, found east of the Henderson Ferry dock, you can find this card. It’s right of the entrance.
On the large balcony on the southern edge of Henderson, where the bridge leads to Fort Henderson, you can find a card near the building’s exterior wall on a table.
Take the bridge south after arriving in Henderson and you’ll find steps leading down to the left. Follow the steps down and under the bridge, then continue moving west across the bridge to find a blue cart with a crate inside. The card is next to the box.
Northwest of the bridge leading to the Military Base, you’ll find an NPC named Damien that gives the “Memories” side-quest.
Below the NPC’s balcony, you can find this card.
Travel to the Church courtyard, east of the Concert Plaza and south of the Cinema. Look on one of the benches against the west wall, north of the steps to find this card.
In the southwest section of the city, north of Henderson Fort, you’ll find a small building called Rodrigo’s Workshop. Behind the front desk, you’ll find a board with this card posted to it.
This card can be collected after Chapter 8. After gaining access to the Old Cinema roof once the ladder is lowered, you can gain access to a rooftop terrace with stacks of chairs. There’s a covered table with the card adjacent to the cinema roof.
