FAQ - What clients want to know about postcards
Which postcard sizes are available?
Our price calculator lists 10 different sizes that go from 4"x6" to 11"x17" jumbo sizes that reflect the most in-demand sizes. If you need a different size, please reach-out to us for a custom quote.
What type of files can I send to print postcards?
The best way is to save PDF files with settings for high-resolution, with crop marks and bleed, and flatten your artwork. Always create your artwork in the real final size. If you choose to send Adobe Illustrator files, make sure that the fonts are outlined to prevent your selected fonts to default to others that you might have not chosen. You can submit JPG, PSD, TIF, or PNG files as well. Recommended bleed: 0.25"
In which color mode should I prepare my files?
Submit your artwork in CMYK, which will show you the colors that can be obtained in a printing press. If you design in RGB, which is the color space that you would use to design artwork to be posted online, there will be color shifts. Print can't show as wide of a range of colors as monitors and phones.
Image Resolution: Are images that I found online good to print?
In most cases, the answer is NO. Those images are usually set for 72dpi, which look good on monitors, but when printed on paper look terrible. Use 300 dpi instead. If you can't find out the resolution of the image, A quick way to "guess" if the image will print nicely is to zoom into the image. If the image becomes fuzzy and does not look sharp, the printing of those will match that same experience.
I have multiple designs. Can I split my order into multiple lots?
The jobs are priced by the number of impressions of each design. if you need multiple lots, place a separate order for each lot. In other words, if you order 5,000 postcards, you can't request half the order with one design and half the order with a different design
Is it easy to write on top of the postcard if it has the shiny UV coating?
No. The UV varnish protection is not the best substrate to write onto. A permanent marker such as a Sharpie would allow you to write though. If your intention is to have people write on top, we suggest you to use non-uncoated stock. That option can be selected in the calculator when you get to select the type of paper.
Can you bundle the postcars? Separate them in groups of 100?
Yes, we provide that service. Make sure to select the option in the price calculator
