I use my word processing program...under labels. But you can just take a sheet of 8.5 x 11 cardstock and cut it fourths. Each piece is a post card legal size. I put the entire sheet (page 1) in my printer and use my computer graphics to print something cute or noteworthy on each one - individually or as a group. I also type three lines on the reverse side (page 2) for writing the address. This is not necessary, but let's people I am gifting with the post cards know what they are to be used for. Then just print and cut apart - usually 4.25 x 5.50. Put proper postage on 'em and mail.

I agree with the above posting on how to get your printer to print postcards. Now notice those dimensions the post office considers a legal postcard size. Cut any paperboard, like cereal boxes, to that size. You can use glue stick to paste magazine images or photos on one side. On the other add forever postcard stamp from the post office or


Leave room for address and message. You can customize your homemade cards to suit the personality of the person receiving the card. Personalize with pieces of your own photos. Use cartoon balloons to add your own dialog. Use for birthdays, holidays, travel, get well, or ANY occasion. Nowadays paper mail is a delightful novelty, especially handmade & personized!!
