Default Re: Postcards for headbands?

I was going to use tape on my regular postcards but decided on something else. I've been meaning to ask you ladies what you thought about it. I folded the excess part of the headband at the back of my card (like you ladies who use tape do) but instead of taping it, I tied ribbon around the headband and knotted it just tight enough to hold but not so tight that it will leave a bad crease when the customer takes it off the postcard.

I left a crocheted headband on the card for a week that way and then took off the ribbon to see if the headband itself would be ugly from the creases. It didn't look bad whatsoever. The only thing I'm waiting to test it on is regular nylon headbands. Somehow I have a feeling those might leave a worse crease.

I do LOVE the idea about the half circle punched out of the oversized postcards. That is a fabulous idea!

Yes the headband goes all the way around the card. The notches hold it in place so it doesn't slide off the card

Here's the difference in size between the regular postcards and oversized postcards. I can't locate my punch at the moment but you can see the notches on the regular size. When you notch the larger size the headband fits on them perfectly without needing to crease it in the back


Here's the two ways to secure the headbands on the smaller cards.

The first has the notches and tape
The second has a hole punched in the middle of the card and then I clip the alligator clip through the hole to secure it

I ordered headband cards from a ribbon supplier and affixed my business label on them. Super easy and cheap!

I tape them too, but....I cut a small piece of paper on top of the headband so the tape wont have any sticky feeling on the headband. You just never know, maybe it get hot in tha mailbox and melt the sticky part on the tape and that's not good.

I would not recommend anyone using tape on FOE headbands. I had taped it on the back of one of the standard postcards for a photo. When I was done, I pulled the tape off (carefully) it left the FOE fabric all pulled and fuzzy looking and the headband was basically ruined.
