Some stamps are self-adhesive, but others must be moistened. If the stamp is self-adhesive, just pull it off the backing and attach it to the postcard in the proper place. Make sure it's not upside-down! If so, however, don't worry — the US postal service usually mails postcards with an upside-down stamps. If your stamp is not the self-adhesive kind, you will need to moisten the back of the stamp to activate the adhesive.
If you don't want to lick the stamp, then you can use a sponge, or even just dip a couple of fingers in some water. Moisten the back of the stamp until it's a little wet, but not dripping. If it's too wet, the stamp might rip or slide off the postcard. Address the card. Postcards usually have dedicated spaces for the message as well as the sender's and receiver's address.
If it is a homemade or non-standard postcard with no dedicated spaces: draw a vertical line down the middle of the card while it is in a horizontal position, then draw a horizontal line splitting the right half in two. Use the left hand side for the message, the upper-right corner for the stamp and receiver's address, and the bottom-right corner for your own address. If you're traveling, you may not expect a reply — or you can give your correspondent the address of the next place you'll be staying.
Write your postcard. See How to Write a Postcard. If you're mailing it to yourself, write a memory on the back of the card; if you're mailing it to a friend, add a short message to let them know how you're doing. Try to give the recipient a brief snapshot of your experience. You don't need to write a novel — the very act of sending a postcard, however short, is usually enough to show a person that you're thinking of them. Again, make sure to put the stamp on first. This way, you won't end up writing where the stamp covers.
It's important not to write too low on the postcard. Most of the time, the post office will attach a sticker across the bottom of the card in order to send it where it needs to go. Try to keep at least a finger's width between the edge of the postcard and the bottom of your message. Mail the postcard. Find a post office or a public mail drop box in your area.
Make sure that you've added the correct amount of stamps and properly addressed the card. Once you're certain, mail the postcard as you would a normal letter. If you're abroad, allow at least a week or two for the letter to reach its destination. Some office buildings, government offices, or community centers may have a mailbox. If you are at a hotel, the front desk will often mail your postcard with its outgoing mail. If you can't find a place to mail your postcard, ask the locals and other travelers.
