    As far as I am aware, there's only one company that makes dedicated postcard paper to print on, and that's Ilford. A lot of people (including me) use it for these postcard exchanges. But just as many people don't -- using small sizes (sometimes up to 5x7) of other papers, or cutting papers down to size, is pretty common as well.

    Hi Casey,

    I don't use "specific" postcard paper (Ilford), just any paper I can lay my hands on at the time; lately that has been old stuff I've picked up free or for $1-$2/box100 or 50 sheets.

    Quite a few people do, but you can use whatever you like - entirely your choice!

    The advantages of the Postcard paper are:

    1) there is an image on the back that helps you figure out where to put the stamp, the address, and the note ; and
    2) it is already cut to the 4"x6" size that is fairly standard worldwide for postcards; and
    3) it is on the heavier weight Portfolio RC stock.

    I don't make a point of buying it normally - I'm usually content to either use 5"x7" or cut down 8"x10" sheets of regular RC paper to three 4"x6" sheets plus a stub for exposure and toning tests.

    Be careful about using 5"x7". I sometimes use that in Canada, because we don't have a preferential postcard mailing rate here, but in the USA, 5"x7" is too big to qualify for the really nice $0.28 postcard postage rate.

    I use the Postcard paper for the following reasons:
    - cheaper postcard postage in the US
    - thicker than standard RC

    It's also a good size and reasonably priced (I think).

    Hi Rüdiger,

    #20 was my first pce. I was happy everytime I was able to fetch one of those beautiful handmade postcards out of my postbox.
    But now, it seems to be already over (only 5 out ).

    So, not to suffer from withdrawal, please sign me up for the MAX.
