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 am an avid Avery product user but this Print-to-the-Edge Postcard really got under my skin. I tried al that I could think of to get my project printed correctly with this product and it didn't work! I feel like I just threw my money. I will try to use them in a different way but print-to-the-edge won't work with this product.

Simple and Easy

This review is from Ink Jet Matte Coated Postcards 8387:

I love these postcards at work. This time of year we send out employee notes and invitations to family parties. Avery Postcards cut down on prep and delivery. I love the ease of Design and Print Online to get the information 'pretty' and the postcards for one step delivery. Thank you Avery!

Perfect Size

This review is from Ink Jet Matte Coated Postcards 8387:

We use these postcards to send out monthly reminders for meetings. We use an ink stamp and then fill in the blanks with the required information. These cards are the perfect size for our stamp.

Product is good but Templates are Difficult

By KBDC

from Undisclosed

This review is from Ink Jet Matte Coated Postcards 8387:

The overall product is very good. The quality of the paper and final results are very good however I always seem to have difficulty working with Avery Templates. I especially have difficulty in downloading the template and having it do what I want. Don't know if it's the template or me or the programs I am using. I usually figure something out on my own to create the design I want on the Avery product I am using.

Not Postal Post card size

By 61jeff

from Undisclosed

This review is from Ink Jet Print-to-the-Edge Postcards 8386:

I bought item 8386 so I could send out post cards as a reunion invite. Well.. we got the 100 cards printed with no problem at all.. The problem was that the size Avery stated them to be 4"x6" , but the postal service said they were bigger. We were not able to send them as post card pricing but had to use Standard Letter size postage. Just a warning to those buying this item.. make sure you re-measure the cards along with taking a tape measure to post office to make sure of the sizing. Not sure if it was Avery or the post office sizing template that is incorrect.
