Postcards are a perfect way to share information. They are inexpensive and very effective
Postal regulations require postcards to be a minimum 3½ inches high by 5 inches wide to a maximum 4 ¼ inches high by 6 inches wide
Postcards must be at least .007 inches thick so most are printed on cardstock.
