This is what I found on paper weight requirements… I believe anything in this rang is up to you.

minimum thickness for a USPS postcard is 0.007″ and maximum thickness is 0.016″

Typical coated cover stock thickness is:
80 lb .008
100 lb .010
110 lb .011
120 lb .012

100 lb cover (270 gsm) is probably the most popular thickness for postcards. However you may find your color copier doesn’t support stock this thick, in which case 80 lb cover (215 gsm) should be fine in terms of the postal regulation for postcard thickness.

We actually bought our postcards b/c I wanted to heavier/gloss look.

I was still able to completely design them myself & we got 100 for right under 30 bucks after shipping
