We don't have a postcard rate in Britain any more but I've seen examples from the old days with a surcharge because of glitter.
Anything stuck on (apart from a postage stamp) turned a postcard into a letter.

Ha! I love the thought of someone pulling out the guide to prove you wrong only to be proven wrong themselves. Also, thanks for the tip about typing on labels. I was just wondering about how to type on a postcard.


Where might one get a copy of the postal guidelines?

I got sent mine by a retired postal worker. But you might ask at the counter for one, they may have them. Its a largish plastic template with letter sizes and slots.
