    The video was helpful to me as well. I am very glad I do not have to preprint zip codes or city,state. was that other video with your flyer using the 100 pound cover or text? the 100 pound "cover" is a decent card stock for postcards. not as good as 14pt or 16pt, but almost. The 100 pound "text" is more like a thick paper.

    also, do you have to count out the postcards and bundle them for each carrier route when you deliver to the post office? or just give them the total for all carrier routes you choose. The reason I ask is I have about 20 different carrier routes I want to saturate, and counting 400-700 cards for each is not gonna be fun. perhaps I will weigh 10 cards on a gram scale and then do the math.
