Find the best features you need to create an impactful and unforgettable postcard. Whether you’re designing a custom postcard to promote a special sale or to greet someone on a holiday, you can print that message on a premium cardstock and highlight the important details in glamorous coating.

Make a Memorable Impression With Sturdy Cardstock

The weight and feel of your custom postcards will determine a customer’s first impression of your brand. It’s crucial to have your big announcement or upcoming sale printed on thick and durable cardstock.

Add a Protective and Elegant Coating

Our coatings enhance your custom postcard with every standout finish, while keeping the design good as new with its protective qualities. High quality postcards are guaranteed with every coating choice.

  • Gloss allows each color to pop and protects a design from damage during mailing.
  • Matte offers a quiet but impressive finish with its elegant, easy-to-read surface.
  • High gloss UV gives the most stunning shine & brightest print on every color. It is abrasion resistant and the most durable against multiple handlings.

Marketing and Design Ideas

Standard postcard marketing works. Not only is this demonstrated by multiple studies, the rise of standard postcard printing shows that direct mail advertising continues to be effective in our real-time, digital world. Here are some of the best ways to utilize your postcard design in your next marketing campaign.

  • Entice them with irresistible offers. Customers can rarely resist a good sale or coupon sent directly to their doorstep. Mail loyal and potential consumers alike a personalized postcard that includes a special coupon or discount.
  • Personalize each delivery. Give loyal subscribers thank you postcards. Create designs that are tailored specifically to your target market based on their age, gender, income, etc. Target Marketing reports that a personalized postcard assures higher response rates than the generic ones.
  • Keep it visual. Postcards provide enough space for one or several images. New businesses can introduce themselves through powerful images showing the lifestyle they are selling or colorful infographics that can lead them right to their store location.
