Fragen und Antworten zur Postkarte

  • Was sind Briefkarten?

    Postkarten die in einen Briefumschlag gelegt werden, werden Briefkarten genannt.

  • Gibt es bereits frankierte Postkarten?

    Ja, die sogenannten Pluskarten im DIN C6 Format sind bereits mit 0,70 € frankiert.

  • Was bedeutet das Flächengewicht einer Postkarte?

    Das Flächengewicht einer Postkarte bezieht sich auf die Masse pro Flächeneinheit, normalerweise ausgedrückt in Gramm pro Quadratmeter (g/m²).

    Es gibt an, wie viel Gewicht das Papier pro Quadratmeter hat. Je höher das Flächengewicht, desto dicker und schwerer ist die Postkarte in der Regel.

    In Deutschland beträgt das Mindestflächengewicht einer Postkarte 150 g/m². Das bedeutet, dass eine Postkarte mindestens 150 Gramm pro Quadratmeter wiegen muss, um als Standardbrief versendet werden zu können.
