Add a Level of Luxe to Your Brand

Send out silk postcards to leave a lasting and luxurious impression. These postcards boast of a special lamination process that provides a coating so elegant it looks and feels like silk fabric. We use thick, high-quality 16 pt. cardstock that when combined with the silk finish, stands out anywhere. Its heft, thickness, and plastic-like coating make it the ideal choice to market high-end brands, gourmet products, and premium services.

Want to add an exclamation point to your design? You also have the option to add spot UV to specific areas in your artwork. We recommend using this special treatment for your brand name and logo to show a stunning visual contrast to the silk postcards.


Silk Postcards Sized to Suit Your Every Need

Silk postcards are a versatile tool for any brand to use. It comes in a variety of sizes to help get your message across. Some of our most popular size options are:

  • 4” x 6” is the standard and most cost-effective option for silk postcards. Perfect for sending big announcements, like grand openings or product launches, to a large number of people.
  • 4.25” x 6” gives you a little more printing space for copy or an image. This size is still eligible for direct mail services.
  • 5” x 7” is also known as medium postcards. It’s great for sending sales promotions with discount coupons because of the extra space.
  • 5.5” x 8.5” provides plenty of space for your message and multiple images. It’s also referred to as a half-page postcard since it’s half the size of a sheet of paper.
  • 6” x 9” is big enough to stand out, yet still easy to hand to customers for keeping. These can also be used as inserts for big product or mailer boxes.
  • 6” x 11” is the largest size available for mailing and sticks out in a mail pile. Due to its size, you can even use it as a menu.

Questions

Vanne 3 years ago
Great question! Both sides of this product have silk laminate so we can't guarantee writability on either side. Permanent markers may be able to write on it, but we recommend testing for other writing materials. You can contact our customer service team at 855-898-9870 to request for a sample. You can also check out our standard postcards here: https://module.nextdayflyers.com/secure/custom-printing-quote This product has uncoated options (uncoated both sides, or high gloss front/uncoated back) which will allow you to write on the uncoated side.
