I purchased 8386 Postcards to make mailable postcards containing my photographs. I was somewhat disappointed by the relatively thin stock. It is not nearly as thick as a preprinted postcard. I would have liked stock at least twice as thick.

I'm not clear why other reviewers complained they could not print to the edge. I assumed Avery meant "print to the edge of the post card". In this respect the product performed well. There are only two 4 x 6 in cards per sheet so there is extra paper around each card. By making an image slightly (1/16 - 1/8in) larger than 4 x 6, you can position the image so it covers the entire 4 x 6 surface with a small amount of over flow. Once you separate the cards, you get "Print-to-Edge". Since many inkjet printers cannot print to the edge of a piece of paper (many have a 1/4 - 1/2 in limit), this is the best way to get edge-to-edge coverage. The only issue is that this product does not use Avery's Clean Edge technology used on some of their business cards so edges on separated cards could be better.

I printed the back of the postcard (the address side) using Word and the Word template. This template worked well and gave good alignment (although this side required less accuracy). I printed the front of the postcard (the image side) with Photoshop. Probably because of some oddities related to printing from Photoshop, the Photoshop template did not align well. I allowed 1/16 in. overlap on each side. It took some work to get the relatively precise alignment needed for the image.

One issue for a photographer regarding this product is that Avery does not provide an ICC profile for this paper (or any other I can find) so getting good color take a little work. With a little trial and error I was able to get pretty good results.

If this product was twice as thick and used Clean Edge it would be great.

These postcards are perforated as advertised, however, the perforations are not equally spaced. Two of the cards are 3 3/4" x 5 1/2" and two are 4 3/4" x 5 1/2". Not sure how you are supposed to make postcards using the template available when the postcards aren't the same dimensions.

Paper Weight for Postcards?

By JR

from Jacksonville, FL

Verified Reviewer

Pros

  • Design looks good on the texture
  • Sharp Tones & Colors

Cons

  • Flimsy

Best Uses

    This review is from Ink Jet Matte Coated Postcards 8387:

    I have #3380 Textured White Postcards which states it meets US Postal regulations. However, I would like a slightly thicker paper for postcard invitation. I would like to know the weight of the paper so that I can buy a thicker postcard that I can use the same template. Perhaps they are all this thin? They look great with my design on them but I hate to see what they look like after being sent through the mail. Trying to "chat" with Avery was unsuccessful as no agent ever came. I'm rating a 3 but if the paper was slightly thicker, it would get a five, hands down!

        The picture or front side options are excellent. The back side only offers designs, or art work. Where is the normal template that all post cards have????

        Avery We Print Website

        By Frustrated

        from Washington, DC

        This review is from Ink Jet Textured Postcards 3380:

        This is a review about the Website as well as the postcards. I was never able to get my postcards printed correctly at home despite following all the directions available on the website.

        Two issues with the website beyond the frustrated process of trying to print.

        1. The website kept resetting my preferences to indicate that I wanted email offers from Avery.
        2. I finally gave up and decided to delete my account. Myavery does not let users delete their own accounts. I had to call customer service and "open a case" asking them to delete my account.

        So do yourself a favor by not opening an account with Avery.

            Template does not work. Directions are sparse...including video. Expensive product for quality of paper. Could not for the life of me get the postcards to align properly. Total waste of money. Better off buying cardstock and creating from scratch.
