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.

        This was the first time I used the program and of course didn't really read the instructions. My one recommendation would be to tell everyone to keep hitting save since my computer decided to crash as I was adding in the last text, lost the entire thing. Not the programs fault.
