I have never heard of this, what kind of sticker is it?

Yes – all postcard postage (at least in the US) is always printed like a small barcode strip on a sticker along the bottom edge of the card, like this:

 

 

Whatever template you used to make the postcards should have had a boundary on the bottom 1/4-1/3 inch or so to prevent that from happening, or a guideline telling you what space you had to work with – thats a bummer if it didnt.   They are pretty easy to peel off though.

Yeah there are specific do not print guidelines for postcards and I’ve seen a lot of templates that don’t have these or are inaccurate. I’m sorry that happened to you.

This is normal, they use it like a barcode for mail-sorting.  As PP said, the template should have showed boundaries to not write anything there.  You should get it out by word of mouth that you have the website and what it’s url is

Yeah, that is weird. I’ve seen the barcode sticker, but never a blank one. Hmm…

@MrsDiddles:  its probably a magnetized one. I’ve seen them both printed and plain white – probably depends on the post office, or the URL was interfering with the bar code. All postcards have them, no matter what.  It wasn’t because it was a website.
