I can understand the frustration, if the cards are damaged so bad, that they are unrecognizable.
Let's try it this way: In the final address-list, I will add a remark to your address that you prefer an envelope with the print in it. But the project overall stays a postcards project, because this is, what it is and why we make it. Receiving a postcard is a totally different thing (for me, at least), than receiving a letter. E.g. I can talk to the postman about all the pictures, or when I come home, and my family arrived earlier, I find postcards posted to the mirror, where we have out keys. Would that be okay for you? Having your preference in the address-list and otherwise keep things the same for the rest of us?
