  • Minimum: 0.25mm
  • The postcard must be able to bend into an ‘S’ shape

  • All four sides must be straight
  • Each corner must be 90°
  • The vertical edge must be equal to or shorter than the horizontal edge
  • Items printed in ‘portrait’ format are not allowed

Design

The biggest reasons for mail being held up or not delivered are the following:

  • Postcards not having destinations clearly written
  • Our stamps being used on envelopes or packages – we don’t have the facility to send packages internationally
  • Our stamps being used to send mail to domestic addresses. Contractually, our stamps are for international destinations only
