I seem to have so many postal questions, and if I thought that the Post office could answer them for me I’d ask them but they never seem to know. So I get more help here from the bees, so here I am again. I’m posting pics so I dont have to try to explain… but now im concerned about placing a stamp on my rsvp postcards.
When I designed them i read the requirements on the post office website and followed those exactly. Its the right size and thickness. But then as I was randomly googling one night I came across a business website that said to leave the bottom portion of a postcard meant for mailing to offers to customers, blank so that the PO could put a barcode on it. I posted about that previously and the bees said that it would get delivered.
Now im worried about a decoration I placed on the rsvp at the top to make it look like a vintage old postcard. I purposely made it really small and didn’t want it to be near the stamp but when I bought my stamps they didnt have a vertical stamp that would have looked good so I had to buy the horizontal ones.
I figure I have two options: place the stamp on it as normal, and wonder if the cancellation decor that I put on will interfere with the machines, or to place the stamp sideways, as pictured here too. I hate to place it sideways if I don’t have to. But will to avoid a hassle.
I wish when I designed these I knew about etsy because I would have just ordered them on there and had someone do them, but it’s too late now.
Anyway, does anyone know if that cancellation decoration I put there next to the stamp will interfere with the machines? Its not over the stamp so it doesnt look like the stamp was already cancelled? Does it look silly to put it sideways?
