Let’s party: Receiving a party invitation through the mail is exciting. It asks you to attend a fun event and it lets you know the details…when, where and if there is anything else you need to know. You can design the front and back of the card or find an existing postcard that might fit your theme and concentrate on the address side.. The average postcard size is 4” X 6”.
