The Aspect Ratio (length divided by height) must be between 1.3 and 2.5. Paper color can be any light color, not brilliant colors. Paper weight cannot be less that 75# paper.

IMPORTANT NOTE: If cards are designed with a message on the left side of the address panel, postal regulations require 2-1/8″ for addressing — HOWEVER, a barcode measures 3-1/8″ and requires placement 1/2″ from the rightmost edge. Add another 1/8″ clearance on the left side of the barcode and you need a total of 3-3/4″ clear space for addressing with barcodes.
