Get creative with high quality postcard printing. These are great promotional items for business, informing clients of important information, announcing a new product or advertising an event.
Postcards are an affordable way to get your message out quickly and professionally. People are more likely to read a postcard than any other direct mail piece because the message is instantly visible.
Choose from a wide range of paper stocks and sizes, as well as landscape or portrait designs. Paper weight starts at 250gsm, though we do recommend a heavier weight (350gsm) for your postcards if you want to post them. Matt or gloss lamination can also add extra strength.

Tips & Templates
We recommend printing on an uncoated paper stock if your postcards will be hand written as coated medias are harder to write on.
When designing your card please ensure that if you are wanting your card printed full bleed (with colour from edge to edge of the card) that your design includes at least 3mm bleed (this is extra area around the card to allow for trimming). We also suggest that you avoid critical detail being closer that 3mm from the edge of the card, and we also don’t suggest that you have a frame around the edge. The reason for this is because there is always movement within the printing process and as a result when the cards are cut we may not be cutting exactly on the crop mark, hence the requirement for bleed and the suggestion to avoid detail being close to the edge.
If you have any questions it is usually easier to call and get the answers before you start designing to avoid any extra costs that may be incurred if we need to fix your file so it is suitable for printing.
When supplying your electronic file for digital printing we always prefer to receive your cards in PDF format. This will happen automatically if you print using Web to Print, or alternatively our PDF Resource page lists a number of free PDF creation options. If your job is to be offset printed (eg you need specific Pantone colours, embossing or foiling) then usually we would prefer the native file. You can supply them 1up on the sheet as we have software that will automatically gangup multiple cards to fill the sheet.
