i used cardstock from walmart…i really didnt pay attention to the kind of paper i just knew i needed something heavier this is what i used. They turned out really well and made it through the mail with very minor marks on them.

Just FYI we put little address labels with our website on them and the postal markings made it kind of hard to read.

French Paper produces a heavy weight (140#) cover stock that can be handfed, one sheet at a time, through many home inkjet printers. The paper line is called Muscletone & it comes in several colors. Print with this paper & ask your local post office to hand-cancel your postcards (hand stamp them instead of sending them through the mail muncher machine). You should have the vast majority arrive in great condition.

Don’t forget that you can always test various papers by making a postcard & addressing it to yourself.

Or, you could print on lighter paper and mount to heavier cardstock.
