Postcard Paper Options
We have recently expanded our offering for postcard paper, giving you the choice of lighter weight stocks, from 8 to 12 point. The 12 point postcard has a semi-gloss coating on one side, and a smooth matte surface on the other.
All of the postcard stocks we use produce beautiful cards of exceptional quality.
New and Common Postcard Sizes
Postcards come in lots of sizes, but most common by far are 4″ x 6″ and 5″ x 7″. We have expanded our offerings, though and you have many more postcard size options to fit your plan. Some are popular, like the 3″ x 5″ size, traditionally used for recipe cards, or the 3.5″ x 8.5″ that is an ideal size for gift cards.
The most common choices in our shop are 4″ x 6″ postcards on 14 pt matte card stock and double sided print. Most postcard printing jobs can be ready in a day or two of receiving print-ready artwork files.
3″ x 5″ cards have traditionally been used as recipe and flash cards, and we are proud to offer this size for you to customize your own.
Artwork should be created in the correct size and saved at 300 dpi resolution. A 1/8″ (.125″) bleed should be added to each side.
Here’s Col with a video explanation of what a bleed is.
Postcard Call to Action
Use a unique alphanumeric coupon or QR code on your postcard to encourage the holder to buy or learn more. It is easy and gets results.
If you want to print a collection of cards, like recipes or flash cards, please create one pdf file, to size with bleeds, and having each card on its own page. In other words, a file called flashcards.pdf with page 1 as flashcard 1, page 2 as flashcard 2 and so on. Additional charges may apply to this type of project.
