I really like it too. I normally don't like glossy RC much--not only have I never printed on it, I never got it from labs when I used to get dev + print. But there's something really soothing about the gloss on the postcard paper. I printed a few dupes the last time I was sending something out...I'll pass one on to Ilford.
Oh, about that faint text on the back--almost without fail I print upside down. Uh, part of the charm of a homemade postcard, right?
