How do you make your own postcards instead of buying them?

You can make postcards of any sturdy cardstock, cardboard, watercolor paper, etc. Paint a picture, draw something, make a collage of suitable images, and seal it all well with spray sealer or acrylic medium, address, message and stamp on the other side and you're good to go! most are 4" x 6" for the postcard mail rate in the US of 26 cents. Larger ones are 41 cents.

If you make it too thick with embellishments, it will cost more to mail, and things may fall off in the mail, causing havoc in the post office as things jam up the machinery and mutilate other pieces of mail...be creative, but thoughtful, too. Photos can be printed and glued onto heavy cardstock, too (like leftover greeting cards).
