I didn’t do mine. I didn’t want to take the chance.

I think it should be fine, but I would take an example to your local post office first, to double check.

You can also try doing a test run of one of the postcards.  We wanted to round our corners, but found that with our cardstock, they were getting caught in the machine and tearing bits off, so we ultimately went with regular corners.

I liked that look too, BUT when I asked the post-office, they said they don’t ship them!

I purchased postcards that have rounded corners and they went through the mail fine. Maybe because they were normal sized though, not RSVP sized.

Yeah I think the safest way to go is just make a trial one and sent it to yourself to see how it handles the trip

I believe Miss Mascara did these?  I don’t recall her saying anything about having issues with them…

I rounded mine and had no troubles with the post office.  Didn’t even think of it being a potential problem until a couple of months later and saw it as a concern on here.

I have rounded postcards and sent them through the mail and they actually held up twice as well because the rounded corners kept the corners from getting all bent up and they still looked fantastic when they were done!

The Post Office won’t mail rounded edges.  I love the look as well, so we’re doing STD cards inside regular envelopes.  That way our gorgeous picture won’t be ruined when it’s tossed through the mail.  And check out  http://www.overnightprints.com/.  They have a rounded corner option so you can save yourself some time!

Although officially the post office does not mail postcards with rounded corners, I sent out RSVP postcards and all 80 of our guests were able to send them back to us with no problems!

When I did my RSVP postcards all the post office told me is that they have to be a very certain size to be able to go through the machine. They gave me two measurements, a minimum and a maximum, and as long as it was within that range, they were good.

I rounded my corners on my RSVP postcards.  They’ve been rollin’ in without a problem for about 3 weeks now.  They look really nice too.  You might want to get thick paper though.  I used 90lb water color paper.  I purchased a watercolor paper book from a craft store for $10 and was able to make all my 100 postcards from it, and have paper left over!

 

I have my invite suite here:
