Turn Greeting Cards into Postcards

To recycle cards and save trees, I turn cards I receive into postcards and re use them. Usually people only write on the inside page so I cut off the front page with the picture on it and then write my own message or greeting on the blank back page along with the address and it is now a postcard. I always get asked where I find such fun postcards and with the price of cards being $2-4 and postage being cheaper for a postcard I save quite a bit each time I send a postcard greeting!

Make sure to trim the cards to standard postcard size of 4x6 inches or they will be returned to you unless you pay the extra postage. (11/07/2008)

Turn Greeting Cards into Postcards

I do this with Christmas cards, and send them to shut-ins in my state.

Also, the sizes can be as small as 3 1/2x 5 1/2 or so - check with the Post Office. And they shouldn't be highly embossed or raised, nor should they have any glitter or flocking. (11/08/2008)

I have been doing this for some time but did not know about trimming them to the postcard size. They ones I sent have not been returned but don't believe I put a return address.
