Make Your Own Postcards


Has anyone ever made their own postcards? I would like to make my own, but do not know where to start. Any suggestions? I have inks and stamps. Thank you.

The Post Office has no rules that I know of for what you send through the mail. I used to work outgoing mail for the Post Office back in the 90s in a college town. You wouldn't believe what we saw coming through to be mailed. One time it was a bra just before St Patrick's day. It had the address on one cup and the appropriate postage stapled on the other cup along with the message "Erin go Braugh! Also I remember a Hershey bar wrapper coming through acting as an envelope.

Yes, there are legal sizes for postcards. I make them out of recycled cards. The United States Postal Service site tells you the size and the weight the cards have to be. Check it out. (04/06/2009)

I have used photographs, the front cut from a greeting card, or a picture from a magazine glued onto cardboard, etc. Since the post office uses machines, it may be a good idea not to glue on any decoration that could get caught on the machine. Also, keep it close to postcard size since a larger size could change the postage. I always put a line down the center of the card - message on the left, address and stamp on the right. (04/18/2009)
