How Much Does A Post Card Stamp Cost

As of January 27, 2019 sending a post card will still cost $0.35. Holding at the same amount set January 21, 2018 that at the time, was up one cent from its previous $0.34 (that went into effect January 22, 2017).

The January `018 date is the same as for other rate announcements, including that for certain postage stamp prices.

Specifically this is for: a card having dimensions between:

3 1/2" x 5" x .007" thick
4 1/4" x 6" x .016" thick

To send a postcard to an international destination the rate is $1.15.

Large postcards have maximum dimensions of 11 1/2" x 6 1/8" and can measure up to 1/4" thick, and cost up to $.50 to send, the same as first class.

Postcards are a great way to save over the price of first class letters. They may work particularly well for announcements, easily accessible hello's, short messages and also for sending many at a time. They go without the risk of "lick and stick" envelopes.

You can even make your own custom inexpensive cards from 4"x6" photos, writing the destination address and placing the stamp right on the photo paper that it's printed on.
