For designing high-quality postcards, here are our top tips:
BusinessPrinting.com specializes in high-quality, custom print products, not basic template designs.
Configure your product and our dynamic template generator gives you a blank template with the correct size, bleed, and trim. To try other specifications, simply change your options and generate a new template. The changes will be reflected in the new template.
Download the file, import it to a design program, and start creating. For existing designs, just copy it to the template and adjust as needed.
With Perfect ProofTM, you have total control of your project. No more guesswork. No more anxiety. No more limitations. All specifications - paper, folding, finishes and more - are included, so you know exactly what to expect when you receive your finished product.
Here is a typical turnaround scenario for requesting Perfect ProofTM
Enter the exact quantity you need in the “Custom Quantity” box inside the “Quantity” dropdown, and we’ll give you an instant price. Our standard quantity ranges from 25 to 50,000 premium postcards. If your exact quantity is over our maximum, call us for a custom quote. We won’t print below the absolute minimum quantity shown in the dropdown.
The USPS has specific design and mailing requirements for Premium postcards. The size and aspect ratio of your postcards will determine the available postage options. From there, you’ll choose which available rate is the best fit for your promotional campaign and budget. Most sizes of premium postcards mail with USPS® Marketing Mail.
However, USPS® First-Class Mail is the best option for mailing 4.25x6, 4.25x5.5, and 4x6 postcards sizes. Save time, money, and effort by ensuring you know these requirements before you start designing your postcard mailer. Check out our Direct Mail Piece Design Page for more information about postcard mail campaigns.
Your file set up will depend on if your premium postcards print on one side or two sides. Every standard postcard format we offer does not include folded options. If you are interested in folded premium postcards, you can call us, and we will do our best to accommodate you.
If your postcards are for Front Only Printing, we will need a one-page PDF of the artwork, or a single JPG.
If you are printing on the Front & Back of your premium postcards, we will need a two-page PDF, one page for the front and one page for the back, or you can send us two single-page PDFs — one for the front and one for the back. Likewise, you can upload two JPG files.
Ensure you are following USPS® mailing guidelines for postcards. For more postcard design details and requirements, check out our Design for Direct Mail page.
