If you are talking about cutting out the postcard stamp area, and sticking them on an envelope or a package, I think it is the same in theory as cutting stamps that were stuck to a letter, unused, and glue them to another letter to use.

They can be used to stamp anything, such as letters. Stamps are like money and they have to add up to the current postage, that is all. ( Full Answer )
Papermaking is considered to be one of the Four Great Inventions of Ancient China , since the first papermaking process was developed in China during the early 2nd century. During the Shang (1600 BC-1050 BC) and Zhou (1050 BC-256 BC) dynasties of ancient China , documents were ordinarily… written on bone or bamboo (on tablets or on bamboo strips sewn and rolled together into scrolls), making them very heavy and awkward to transport. The light material of silk was sometimes used, but was normally too expensive to consider. While the Han Dynasty Chinese court official Cai Lun is widely regarded to have invented the modern method of papermaking (inspired from wasps and bees) from rags and other plant fibers in AD 105, the discovery of specimens bearing written Chinese characters in 2006 at north-east China's Gansu province suggest that paper was in use by the ancient Chinese military more than 100 years before Cai, in 8 BC ( Full Answer )

Postcard printing is one of the most effective, yet inexpensive ways to advertise your company or organization. For less than $ 99 bucks, you can promote your services and products to thousands of prospects, which may eventually become your customers. Creating a postcard is easier than you may think…. You can use software that you might already have in your computer, such as Microsoft Power Publisher, Microsoft Word or Publisher. You can also use Google Docs ( docs.google.com ) to create a presentation file that can also be converted to a commercial press-ready file. The easiest way is to contact a printing company specialized in postcard printing and create your design using the online tools that they provide on their websites. This makes the design and ordering process a snap. 1. Front of your postcard. You want to keep the front of your postcard as clean as possible. One or two eye catchy pictures along with a short paragraph will get people's attention. Use big and bold letters to display the product or service you are promoting. Remember not to clutter the front side of your postcard with too much information. 2. Back of your postcard. All the important details of the product or service you are promoting should go in the back of your card. Pricing, location, phone numbers, website, etc. should be in the back. If you are mailing this piece, do not forget to leave the right half of the back of your card blank to put the recipient's address. 3. Track results. Just as if you were running a tv or radio spot, you must track the results of your postcard marketing so you know what your return on investment is. There's a few tricks to track results. You can place a coupon in the back of your card. Some ideas are: â¢ "15% off your next order with this card!" â¢ "Bring this card to the store before May 15th a receive a 10% discount", â¢ "Receive 10% off your next purchase (new customers only)" You can also create a custom URL on your website and install add google analytics so you know how many clicks the postcards are generating. Check the new visitors to that specific URL often to get an idea of how the postcards are working. 4. Mailing. If your printing company is mailing out the postcards for you, you should have a database with your recipients. Your printing company will ask you to provide them that database in either XLS or CVS Microsoft Excel formats. Most CRM's such as Microsoft Outlook, Zoho, etc. have the export feature that will create the appropriate format for you. If you do not have a database, you may consider services such as InfoUSA.com and SalesGenie.com to get a custom prospect database. If you are mailing out the postcards yourself, make sure to have your mailing list ready before your postcards are ready. You can work on printing labels using Microsoft Outlook and Microsoft Office to merge your contacts and print out your mailing labels. 5. Distribution. If you are distributing your postcards door to door, make sure to contact your town's office to make sure you don't need any special permit to do street distribution.
