I am not sure of the size of your paper. I do have a 5X7 speed easel, also a masking easel that will print 2 ea 4 1/2 X 6 1/2 as well as a another smaller size of unremembered size on a sheet of 8X10 paper. The latter is a Saunders easel. I don't use either of these any longer. Let me know if you are interested.
I used a 4-blade. To make things go faster, I put a piece of masking tape on the arm for positioning the paper, so that I can just slide it into the groove and line it up against the tape, without having to check that it is centered.
Do the borders actually help the appearance of the postcard? Me I'd make em borderless as most postcards I've seen bleed off the edges. I made an adhesive borderless easel once using a thick sheet of plastic and glued down some edges to line up the paper to and put several strips of Post-it tape down on it to keep the corners of the paper down. I think the stuff is available at office supply stores, I got mine from work. I laid a sheet of paper the size I was using down, set it against the corners and outlined the sheet with a pen, then I had something to aim the enlager at.

Sometimes.... Yes. I like the look of clean white boarders around B/W postcards myself
