Do any of you stick a stamp on your rack cards and mail them on their own like a postcard?  Not in lieu of a postcard, but like one?

How many of you have something printed on both sides? I guess if you had the back blank you can mail them okay?

I have a trifold and I mail that. The whole back is blank for mailing, and has a return address on it already. I've done that 2x. Most guests who want that also want a 'package' of info.

That's sounds like a great idea to get another use out of what you've already purchased.

You should make sure you follow postal regulations to make sure they don't get sent back to you. If the "postal markings" area is obscured, for instance, they'll put a sticker over it and cover up your info. And if you have your B&B address in the wrong place, they may send it there instead of the intended recipient.

Modern Postcard has regulations posted for different postcard types here. I use them for mailings all the time. Amazing product and quality, but much more expensive than VistaPrint, I think.

They would, but they would still look kinda cool. But not if the back is printed with info, then it wouldn't work.

Are you thinking that you could mail them for a postcard rate?  Or just saving the cost of the envelope?

It seems I get stuff like that all the time in the mail. Land auctions, carpet closeouts, grand openings, etc etc.  I don't think I could do it for postcard rate but just to mail it out when needed.

Interesting idea.  I haven't done that though.  They're so pretty, I'd be afraid they'd get chewed up by the post office.  Smiling  Mine are printed totally on both sides.
