How to Customize Your Postcards and Maximize the Direct Mail Services

Our postcard mailing services are USPS-approved and adhere to all postcard regulations and direct mail postcard guidelines.

Choose from the following to complete your direct mail postcards:

  • Select the most suitable size. The popular postcard mailing sizes include 5.5” x 8.5” and 6” x 9” – both of which are available here.
  • Choose a cardstock that is within your budget and highlights the impression you want to make. The most affordable option is 10 pt., the standard is 14 pt., and the thickest is the 17 pt.
  • Highlight the images and text on your design with gloss, matte, or high gloss coating.
    1. Gloss gives a bright shine that makes colors pop from afar.
    2. Matte suits neutral palettes or light colors. It also makes longer text easier to read.
    3. High gloss reflects the most under light and is typically used for printing high-resolution images.
  • You can upload your design or create a design online using our free Online Design Tool. Our Help Center post, “How Does Direct Mail Work?” explains the process in detail.
  • Upload your targeted list to the site or call us at 855-898-9870 to rent a direct mail list.

Where can I design my own postcards?
One option is to use our “Create Design Online” tool. You can find this above the page beside the “Select Print Options” and under “Upload Artwork”. As you can see, you can also have our Design Services Team design your postcards for you.

Which areas of my postcard should be left blank for addressing and postage?
The blank areas depend on your postcard’s orientation. For vertically divided cards, the right portion is left blank for placing the recipient address, postage, and USPS markings.

For horizontally divided cards, the portion of the address side without the destination address is the message area. You will leave the area that contains the address blank for the postage and other USPS markings.

Thank you for your question! The postage rate for Postcards with a size of 4" x 6" up to 4.25" x 6" is $0.30 and it'll be $0.46 for Postcards size - 4.25" x 6" up to 6" x 11". These are postage rates for flat postcards only. All other products must be verified with a mailing representative as several factors need to be verified before an accurate price may be quoted. You can send a request for a mailing quote to mailing@nextdayflyers.com.

Definitely! Best way to place an order for direct mailing (i.e. we will print and mail) would be to check "Mailing Service" on the website and click "Continue" to configure the mailing options for your order. You will have the option to upload your mailing list there (template is also available). If you need help setting up an order or if it's easier to send the mailing list via e-mail, you can contact our customer service team for assistance at 855-898-9870.

Yes, you can have the artwork on the backside oriented vertically so long as you follow the mailing template and keep the mailing areas for the address and postage clear. Note that the mailing address and postage will still be printed horizontally. If this is okay with you, you can contact our customer service team when you place an order so we can make a note of this and ensure we process your file accordingly.
