Ilford produces a 4"x 6" postcard paper, which has a slightly different texture on the backing (not sure if it's just a texture difference or an actual change of material) more amenable to writing on. B&H stocks Multigrade RC in Pearle or Glossy surfaces. I got a spectacular deal on a few hundred dollars worth of Ilford paper due to the digital stampede, and this was one of the items. All of my prior postcards to friends and family were simply printed on 5 x 7 with fine point felt pen on the back. This is my first time around in a postcard specific exchange - which despite the higher output using RC will be less work than a much smaller exchange of FB prints.

Please tell me, what are you printing on? I've wondered when I see things about postcard groups.
