We love the idea of RSVP postcards. Love the reduced postage as well as eliminating the need for a return envolope.
Can you share yours so I can get some inspiration?
With sugar on top?

We did postcards. Here are ours:
I bought the photo online from a photo supplier.
I did a few versions of the back where I had a line for each person invited. So if 1 person was invited, 1 line. Two people, 2 lines. I also filled in the names myself.
Downsides to post cards:
No choice in stamps. You get apples!
I don’t think I got one back where the machine didn’t mess up the back of the card in some manner. Luckily it was usually not bad enough that the info couldn’t be read, and seemed to be mostly on the right side of the card. It was only us seeing the damage, not the invitee so that was OK as long as we could still read what they picked for dinner and stuff!
They stamp a bar code across the bottom and a couple of our guests wrote dietary restrictions on that area and the barcode going over it made that hard to decipher.
Still, it worked out well for us. Kept our invitation lightweight so we could just use standard postage. Didn’t have to address extra envelopes, etc.

@littlemisst08: Hawaiian shirt stamps are $ .32 and but there was a postal increase and you now need $ .33 to send a postcard. So apples it is! Although I could have gone with multiple stamps in other increments.

So, ours is pretty basic. It’s landscape on one side, portrait on the other (to fit into our pocketfold invite better)
