Does anyone happen to know the dimensions of a standard USPS postcard stamp?

Not sure if I want to take it that far LOL I'm trying to design a postcard for our STD and thought it would be cute to outline where the stamp goes (looks weird cuz it's a screenshot while in design mode):


Not sure if I photo 53672-1


Not sure if I photo 53672-2

thanks!  I'm making them on www.printsmadeeasy.com I found a link to it on one of Martha Stewart's forum-comment-thingys.  I'm ordering 500 postcards with print on both sides and gloss finish on the front for less than $60 woooooo-hooooooo!


I was gonna DIY with damask carkstock, but I think in the long run this is easier and cheaper.

I just measured some that I have here in the office.  Keep in mind...stamps may vary depending on the style. 


I have the "passion fruit" postcard stamps and the measure: 7/8" wide and 1" high.  That is to the very outside of the squigley edge.


HTH!

Thanks nicsnack! I think the fruity ones are what I'll have to use too - they don't have many options for postcard stamps :(  I would design my own but tryin' to keep it cheap!
