    Hi,
    just came from Staples to buy a 100 pk of post card templates for $21.99! :eek: Where can you find cheap post card card stock?? I want to start sending out Thank you post cards to those who dont' have email addresses. But that just seems kind of pricey!?!

    Go to our supplier, Nancy's Artworks and check out their postcard section. They have 20 for $2.50ish. You can get blank ones with just a PC tools design, "thank you for recent order", "Thank you", many different ones. That would be cheaper than templates. And, they actually have the perforated postcards with a given template too. I just feed the postcards through my printer (depends on what kind of printer you have).
    Target, Hobby Lobby, and HellMart also carry plain cardstock if you have a creative touch.

    Another good place to check is your local bulk supplier-Sam's club-Costco-whatever it may be. I purchased the Avery ones-a 400 pk. for around $15.00 I believe. They make good multipurpose cards for special thank yous or special invites such as fundraisers or theme parties. Hope this helps.

    good source

    Another good source for cheaper supplies is stickingtobusiness.com, which used to be directly from the heart. They have fun stickers, postcards, etc... :)

    hmmm

    I just got robbed! I thought Staples would be reasonably priced just as Office max but $5.99 compared to $21.99 Yikes that's a huge difference! What kind of post cards were they? perforated or not? Mine are perforated and almost look like photo paper (very glossy) which I didnt' really care for but they only had two kinds and the other had a line separating the card in two halves and I did not want that kind. I will definitely have to shop around next time!

    I buy Card Stock paper and make my own postcards with the "postcard" template in Word. They are 4 to a page, and I cut them with a paper cutter that I bought. Works great and really cheap!

    will have to try!

    I may just go the cheapest route and create my own on cardstock next time and forget about the perforated, glossy ones! Ayyee, what was I thinkin!? But I had nothing else to compare them too! I guess I should have come here to ask first before shopping! :rolleyes: Ya live and learn I guess! :(

    I make all my post cards. I use my 40% off coupon from Micheals or wait for a sale on card stock and then stock up. Word has a very easy template to use.

    Postcard

    You can get 400 postcards, 4 cards per sheet for 5.99 at Sams Club. That is where I always buy them. I use the postcards to make up recipe cards for all of the guests to take at shows with the recipe I demonstrate. I also put the PC supplies I used on the back of the postcard. Guests really appreciate the recipe and they have my name and phone number right on the recipe card.
