It might not be the typical way to say this, but is it incorrect or does it sound really awkward?

Thank you all for the birthday wishes, by postcard or through other means.

Or does it necessarily have to be:

Thank you all for the birthday wishes, through postcards or other means.


"By postcard or through other means" is perfectly understandable and correct, but I think "by postcard or otherwise" is more elegant and simple, without any loss of meaning.
