Paper Source sells paper specifically for postcards.  I didn’t like the colors they had at the store near me so I used their A2 sized cards.  For some reason they don’t advertise that this size can be used as postcards, but they worked out great!

I made mine on Shutterfly, and they came out great!

I know what you mean though, I had a hard time finding ones that weren’t obnoxious.

A word of advice: I went to the papersource and said I wanted to do postcards for my Save-The-Date Cards and for my response cards, and they advised against it because they aren’t treated as well as regular mail at the post office. They are more likely to get lost in the mail for some reason. Just FYI

good luck!

I did ours with vistaprint, and I think there was a template to format the document. I used a vintage postcard and added the wording. I also found this super cute postcard template online, kind of a vintage look. I’ll see if I can find the link.
