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.

I purchased the 8386 Matte White Postcards Print-to-the Edge (Inkjet) and was I in for a horrible surprise. Just when I was 50% from completing my project I made an nightmare discovery. Half of my postcard on one side was perfect the other side would not align not matter what I tried. So very disappointed and panicky. Stores are closed and I have wasted 3 inkjet cartridges. I have always been a strong advocate for Avery products. 10 of the sheets were perfect with double-sided printing and they looked fantastic. But the other 40 sheets are a complete loss/waste. Avery, it would be nice to see you stand by your product and make so kind of adjustment...the postcard stock is not cheap. Once I receive some satisfaction for this bad box of cards, I will not recommend this product to a friend.

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.

        I used this product to print farewell messages for my boss. The designs and colors in the templates available at avery.com are simply beautiful, for all tastes. My boss was so happy when he saw these cards in the scrapbook we gave him. They really added a very nice touch to the album plus the quality of the paper is so good and elegant. This is the first time I use this product and I will definitely keep purchasing it! Thanks!

          The cards we had purchase before had to be trimmed to insert in our business letters for
          RSVP's. This card was perfect and the tear off edges come off very easily and clean.

            Because i could not have the template centered, printing for front and back is near impossible.
