Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love The Results This is the 2nd time I've used this company to print postcards and business cards for my business and they have been super! They print and deliver FAST! My postcards look professionally made even though I designed them and the card stock was easy to choose. The customer service is very helpful. I thought my package was sent to another address only to find my mail carrier never informed me it was in a separate locker. I called printplace and they said they would reship order. I found the order and cancelled the reprint. But I am happy I found this company!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Postcards for Celebrating Holy Week As always, PrintPlace did an excellent job printing my files. Sadly though, due to the COVID-19 Shelter-in-Place ordinance, we were unable to use the postcards in advertising our holy week services as my church needed to temporarily close. I would like to add that the shipping cost was a bit over the top considering the cost of the product itself which lowered my VALUE rating to two stars.

Q&A

What is the standard size for mailing postcards?

  • First-Class mail postcard: min. 5" wide x 3.5" tall, max 6" wide x 4.25" tall.
  • Standard Letter Rate & First-Class letter rate: 4.25" tall min. 5" wide x 3.5" tall, max 11.5" wide x 6.125” tall

Is there a minimum order quantity for the direct mail to be available for my order?

Yes, you need to order at least 500 postcards for the “Mailing Services” option to show on our online calculator.

Which is the most durable postcard paper & coating for mailing?

  • 16 pt. cardstock is the thickest in terms of paper weight and most protective in terms of its coating.
  • 14 pt. cardstock high gloss is recommended for its ability to withstand multiple handling and resist damage on both sides.
  • 14 pt. cardstock high gloss UV front, uncoated back is suitable for companies that sell travel postcards and require a writable back side.

What should I keep in mind while designing the flyer?

Color choice determines the effectiveness of your business flyer. A bright or bold color attracts a reader to pick up the flyer, while a dull one will go unnoticed. If you want to entice customers with a fun approach, stick to orange and yellow shades. Companies that require a more professional tone can opt for cool shades such as blue, gray, and green.

Do the printing turnaround times for postcards include shipping or mailing to the indicated address?

Our printing turnaround time for postcards refers to the number of days indicated to produce the order. Choose to have your postcard printed as fast as the same day or in 1 business day. It does not include shipping transit time or direct mail processing time. All turnaround times are based on business days and exclude national holidays.

What is the benefit of selecting a folding option for my postcard?

Folding options make it easy to store and transport large quantity orders. The fold you choose will depend on how you want to organize the flyers before handing them out.

Free layout templates are provided through a desktop computer in EPS, JPG, PDF, and Publisher formats for front and back side printing.

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.
