    Seems to be hit and miss.

    Now you could just throw the Polaroid in a envelope and send that, if you wish. No biggie.

    So, you in? I hope so.

    I sent mine "naked" as I thought we were doing postcards and not exchanging letters. Considering the quantity of postcards WE are sending out, WE will find out if this method of sending a postcard internationally is viable or not. The site "Polaroid Postcard" seems to give one the idea that it works fine. I for one, STILL have not gotton the two that I sent to MINN. and back to MD. using the naked method.
    I personally would like to see all cards sent naked as postcards for this exchange, AS WAS SUGGESTED FROM THE START. We will know the numbers sent and the numbers received, and once and for all know if the instant post card is possible.
    I think that if one pays full postage (letter rate not postcard rate) to cover extra handling, that it would almost be "tampering with the mail" for postal workers to throw away private mail. They may not like it, they may discourage it, but to throw it away, I don't know about that.
    I vote to stamp them and send them, be done with it.

    Well I'm very pleased to announce that slowly but surely I've received polaroids with stamps slapped on from Winger, um not sure... no name but yellow sign on coast, the banana, wine bottles and Dianna. Enclosed in an envelope were from umm not sure, blurry illustrative face, and lavender by Alex Hawley. I love the stamp on polaroid, so please no need to change. I'm enjoying this very much. Thank you!

    Received my first this morning from Heather (Akki14). Thanks. Addressed on small white border on front and single stamp on back. I'm surprised (and glad) that it got here. Have confidence just to chuck my Instax prints in the post now. Will finish off "snaps" this weekend and send them on their way...

    Whoa cool! That's as fast as normal 1st Class post too! I hope the rest make it to their destinations - those higher denomination stamps for sending abroad are just lick-and-stick. They seemed to stick on the back alright, though.
    Also, I love my 0.005mm tipped pen My husband says I'm doing the old poor-eyesighted posties a disservice!
