Anyone have or know of a postcard location list?
I have 19/20 and I have no idea where to look. I've been stuck for hours on this dang thing.
EDIT: Added locations (Thanks Flaw!)

I couldn't find the 'Up in the rocks' one with the directions posted. I ended up getting to it a different way, much simpler (this is assuming I am talking about the right one):
The postcard is on a long narrow rock that you can't jump on. Looking at the card from off the edge it's sitting on, go on the right side and you'll see a huge dip with bonus points heading back behind you that would be attainable if you were to take that jump and boost. Keep going behind it, like you were wanting to take that jump, but keep heading in a direction to the right of the road. You'll want to take the jump at an angle, around 50 degrees to the right of the bonus points. You'll only need to do this a couple times to get the feel for the direction and speed needed. Land with both the brake and e-brake buttons pushed so you don't go over the edge.

Thanks for all the help everyone. I got this achievement yesterday and contrary to what I'd heard, found it rather easy.

When is the postcards available to get? I just started the game and go to the spots, but no postcards. WIll they open up later? or maybe they are in the races, not free roam?

Postcard hunt is a mission which you can instigate by talking to Lizzie in her shack which will start Lizzie's Postcard hunt, the mission then runs throughout the rest of the game and you should see them pop up. Some are a real pain in the ass to get though. Good luck.

It is if you want to cheat - you should be able to blast through it easy in a couple of days. Might take you a little longer to get all 1000gs though - some of the postcards are real tricky to find.

Is there any videos of this? If not, I think this would be a great one to make an achievement video of, because I'm seriously having a hard time finding some of these

Nevermind my above post, once I found table top A (finally), I was then able to find table top B and C.

Has anyone seen a color map for these locations? I was thinking way before I had rented the game I saw a color map linked somewhere, but I suppose it may have been for another title.
Sin is in!

I found a much better guide from Barry Will on GameFAQS. So thanks to Mr. Will for all the help it made my job so much easier!
Chapter 1 Postcards:
These postcards are in the Radiator Springs area and can be reached
immediately, though a couple are easier to reach if you have a boost tank.
-> Directly across the street from Lizzie's, almost in front of Mack.
-> On top of Ramone's House of Body Art; there's a ramp around back to
get up on the roof.
-> On top of some crates behind Luigi's Casa Della Tires; go behind Lizzie's
shop and get a running start up the ramp and jump to reach the postcard
(this one's a bit easier if you have at least one boost tank).
-> In one of the rooms of the Glenn Rio Motel, east of the Cozy Cone Motel
on Route 66.
-> In the wash running behind Sarge's compound, underneath the bridge.
-> Behind Sarge's compound, between the fence and the wash; drive to the
opposite side of the wash and drive along the edge until you pass the
"back gate" of Sarge's compound and you'll see the postcard in a clear
area just beyond. Find the area on your side of the wash that's about
the same height as the area across the wash. Get a good, long running
start to make the jump (this one's easier if you have at least one boost
-> Go out the right-hand back gate of the old drive-in (the back exit that
leads to a dirt road) and follow the road around to the right and behind
the fence you'll find a postcard.
-> From Route 66, head to the firehouse and take a left. When the road makes
a hard right turn (marked with yellow directional signs), jump up on the
little ledge to the left and drive closely behind the fence along the lip
of the wash to find the postcard.
Chapter 2 Postcards:
These postcards are in Radiator Springs; but, you need at least one boost
tank (complete "Boostin' with Filmore") in order to make the jumps.
-> From the Doc's Lesson/Challenge event marker, go due north until you run
into a cliff face. Turn right (east) and drive along the cliff until you
find a narrow dirt path blocked by an orange and white barricade. Jump
the barricade and follow the path. When you reach a T-intersection, go
right to pick up a 2,000 point bonus icon, then head back the other way.
You'll have to make a big jump onto a plateau, then another, shorter
jump to a second plateau. Drive down off the western edge of this second
plateau and keep going west to find the postcard.
-> Exit the old drive-in by the dirt road in back. Follow this road straight
into the series of criss-crossing washes behind Willy's Butte. You'll go
around a fenced-in pit. After rounding the pit, look for a grass-covered
slope to your right, this is a slope you do not have to jump up to. Drive
up the slope and you'll find two dirt paths. Take the path that goes
straight up from the slope (heading west) and follow it upwards. You'll
have to make a short jump followed by a big jump to reach a large rock.
From this large rock, find the big ramp on the east side and boost-jump
it to a sloping rock. Drive up the sloping rock and go left on a path
that winds around the inside of a butte. At the end is the postcard.
-> From the previous postcard, find the opening to the west and make a
couple of short jumps to another postcard.
-> From the previous postcard, jump down from the north edge (there's a
little down-ramp) to another rock, then down again right onto the dirt
path you started on. Make the two jumps again to a large rock. This time,
boost jump off the small ramp on the south side to reach another post-
Chapter 3 Postcards:
These postcards are located in Ornament Valley, which is opened at the
beginning of Chapter 3.
-> From the Rustbucket arena, go west (toward Radiator Springs). Just past
the Radiator Springs billboard, turn right onto a dirt road. Take the
left path when the road forks. When you reach the concrete bridge, drive
down into the gully and pick up a postcard from beneath the bridge.
-> From the above postcard, drive out of the gully, which places you near
an orchard. Drive into the orchard and work your way from field to
field, following a path of bonus point tokens. When you find a broken
cart, use it to jump the fence and continue following the tokens up
on to a bluff, where you'll find a postcard.
Chapter 4 Postcards:
These postcards are in Tailfin Pass, though most are only accessible after
you've completed "Delinquent Road Hazards".
-> Inside the Wheel Well.
-> Going downhill from the Wheel Well, just before you cross a wood trestle
bridge, a dirt road leads north. Follow it, making two large jumps (two
boost tanks make these jumps easier) to reach the postcard.
*The following areas are not accessible until you have completed "Delinquent
-> In the mine, near the bottom end, is a shortcut to the right that leads
to some wood catwalks. Near the beginning of this shortcut, to the left,
break through the wood barrier to find the postcard.
-> At the top end of the mine, on the wood catwalk. You can reach the
catwalk using a small ramp further down the mine.
-> Take the side road next to the large waterfall and look for bonus point
tokens up on the ridge to your left. Jump up on to the ridge and follow
the dirt road up, taking the right-hand path when the road forks. You'll
reach a ledge with the postcard next to the waterfall.
-> From the above postcard, find the dirt path that continues behind the
waterfall and follow it, making a jump. Stay on the dirt road as it
hairpins down the mountain to reach the postcard.

this may sounds stupid, but I cant tell which direction I am going. All these guides say "head North" but how do I know which Direction is north? I still need 5. Also is there any way to progress time so I am not trying to find these things at night?

Hey all, I found these videos which act as an excellent guide. They are in two parts, part one is postcards 1-12, and part two is 13-20.
Hope these help.
