Frosted Postcard Flakes

Cheerio There Postcard

Cheerio There Postcard

My family of four eats a lot of cereal. We eat gobs of food that is packaged in cardboard. I need cardboard for postcards. Today I began testing ways to re-purpose boxes as postcards. Printing directly on the blank side of the cardboard produced quality results.

There isn’t enough cardboard to print out all 14 packets that are on order. That’s 448 individual postcards or 112 sheets of 8½” x 11″ cardboard with 4 postcards on each sheet. I’ll get maybe 50 sheets if all goes well with the printer. The most recent sheet got jammed and a little brown from the static roller. I really don’t want my B&W printer to catch on fire.
