Our postcards are printed on a magical 100lb card stock called “Stipple”. It’s made right here in the USA by Neenah Paper in Wisconsin. It features a fine pebble-like finish which allows the images to “pop” off the page with brilliance and radiant colors.
But as dazzling as our paper is, it can be maddening to write on when using certain pens.
From our experience, we have great success using these two pens:
Bic Round Stic Medium pen
Sharpie Ultra Fine Point permanent marker
Customers have also reported great results using fountain pens, though results may vary.
We have found that gel-based pens tend to smear, and other ballpoint pens like to skip.
We trust your postcard-writing experience will be even more pleasurable when writing using either of these two pens. Enjoy!
