    Postal entries (SAE or Postcard) 19th Mar 17 at 4:12 PM
    I've purchased some second class stamps and I've decided to enter postal comps. Only problem is that we have countless envelopes but no postcards. Is using an envelope as good as using a postcard? or could there be a risk of them getting lost in the post due to the flimslyness of them compared to postcards

    From experience it makes no difference (My opinion only )

    But if it states on a postcard I use a postcard, if both then whatever I have to hand.

    Good luck with your postal entries

    I buy books of postcards from The Works and send them. I also get stamps for free by doing the Royal Mail survey so it ends up super cheap to enter them.

    Complete surveys, post/receive items and they pay you in stamps instead of cash really making the stamps no more "free" than if they paid in cash and you brought the stamps.
