Impress Your Recipients With Folded Postcards

Folded postcards are more than just a gimmick. With bi-fold and tri-fold options, you can have the same size card to mail, but double the marketing space. These are the ideal print product to hand out or send for your direct mail marketing campaign especially if you need to specify a lot of details. Folded postcards are perfect for detailed promotions, large images, and discount coupon handouts.

Print folded postcards for your direct mail promotions here at NextDayFlyers. All our postcards are printed in a full-color printing process for a vibrant, professional finish. Choose between several bi-fold and trifold options, whatever fits your postcard design. All half-fold postcards are in mailable sizes. Our order quantity starts at 25 up to 100,000 pieces.

Folded postcards are the perfect solution when you’re in a time crunch. We can print your postcards within the same day you place an order. Just upload your press-ready files by 10:00 a.m. PT from Mondays through Fridays and your order will ship by 7:00 p.m. PT on the same business day.

The Benefits of Folded Postcards

With all the additional space you get from folded postcard printing, you also have more opportunities to get your message across. The hefty content in a brochure combined with the convenient size of a mailer makes folded postcards one of the most versatile tools for marketers.

Folded postcards let you get creative with your design compared to traditional formats! They come in different sizes and orientations that work well for any purpose. You don’t need an envelope for folded postcards, so the recipient immediately sees the front panel. The greeting card aspect also adds a sense of familiarity while building excitement for your message. Print folded postcards to introduce your brand or to showcase a new product or upcoming event. Present an eye-catching message on the postcard exterior to pique their curiosity about what you have to offer. Include goodies such as gift certificates, photos, or tickets.

Design effective postcards and achieve great results for your business. Along with cost-effective postcard mailing rates, folded postcards make the best direct mail promotions for any industry.

High-Quality Folded Postcard Printing

Eight (8) postcard sizes to suit your design and message. Our most popular and affordable size options are 4" x 6" and 5” x 7”. Size 4” x 6” is the standard size, ideal for sending out bulk promotions. The slightly larger 5” x 7” adds more impact to images and graphics.

Three (3) cardstock options. We offer thick, premium 16 pt. cardstock to make your postcards look extra professional. We also have high-quality yet budget-friendly options like 10 pt. or 14 pt. cardstock.

Matte, gloss, and high-gloss UV coating options. Add a protective finish that also enhances your postcard design:

  • Matte coating creates a smooth, muted finish that does not reflect light. This is recommended for dark colors and text-heavy designs for better readability.
  • Gloss adds a shiny varnish that protects the surface from scuffs and scratches. This coating amplifies color and design details.
  • High-gloss UV coating is the shiniest and thickest of all varnishes. It also makes the paper more resistant to external elements such as moisture and dust.

We will only print what is on the artwork submitted. Rest assured that NextDayFlyer's logo will not be printed on the back or any part of the card.

Apparently, a postcard on a trifold is not a standard order, which is why we don't have the template available on the site. Feel free to call or chat with us and request a customized template.

Hi, Thank you for your question! We can definitely help you with this potential project! We can request for wafer seal (tabbing) that is used to prepare your folded cards for mailing! We can request our product consultants to create a quote with this custom finishing! If the options you need can't be configured online, you can contact our customer service team for assistance, or you can submit a custom quote request here:

The matte finish will have a matte coating on both the outside and inside so we're not able to guarantee writability for this option. You can select "High Gloss UV Front / Uncoated Back" or "Uncoated Both Sides" (available for the 14pt. Cardstock material only) so that the inside will be unfinished and writable. If you prefer other coatings, we would recommend ordering a free sample kit first so you can test if the pen you want to use can write on the material. You can submit a request here:

If you are referring to flat (not folded) 4" x 6" postcards, we charge $0.303/pc for postage (does not yet include printing or list processing fees) to mail these out. You can check the prices and mailing options for this size here: If you are referring to folded cards though, I would recommend contacting us at 855-898-9870 to discuss options and get a quote as mailing for this product is not available as a standard online. Note: Postage fees may vary if you will be using your own mailing permit or doing the mailing on your own.

Great question! The dimensions displayed on the page are the sizes of the cards after folding, and all cards are scored on the longer side/dimension. So the 4" x 6" card would be 4" x 6" when folded, and 8" x 6" when open; the 4.25" x 6" card would be 4.25" x 6" when folded, and 8.5" x 6" when open; and so on. If you need cards that are scored on the shorter side (e.g. 4" x 6" that opens to 4" x 12") or if you need different dimensions for your cards, you can try to customize the specifications you need here (set the size to the size you need before folding):
Customer C. 5 years ago
Great question! Our matte coating is an applied finish that gives folded postcards a satin look and feel. For a guaranteed writable surface, we suggest going with one of our an uncoated finishing options. "High Gloss UV Front / Uncoated Back" will result in glossy outside panels and uncoated inside panels whereas "Uncoated Both Sides" will result in a completely uncoated folded postcard with no finish at all.
Customer C. 5 years ago
You can build the custom tri-fold postcard you're describing using our custom product builder. Please contact our customer care team for further assistance with obtaining a custom template.
