Reach Your Target Market With Custom Postcards

Postcard printing allows marketers to build a relationship with their target consumers. People continue to appreciate the personalized touch of postcard marketing over their daily digital consumption. Postcards continue to be an affordable yet creative way for businesses to reach their customers in the comfort of their homes.

A standard postcard is often utilized to remind customers of a brand’s website launch, a new store branch, or an upcoming sale through postcard advertisements. Some even use postcards for printing invitations.


Handy and Mailable Custom Postcard Sizes

We offer business postcards in a variety of dimensions to help you spread an important message and showcase your business. Here are some helpful details on standard postcard sizes to help you choose which postcard size fits your message:

  • 4” x 6” postcard printing is the most affordable option, perfect for sending out bulk announcements on a product launch or store opening.
  • 4.25” x 6” is slightly larger than the standard 4” x 6” and provides more space for visual heavy designs.
  • 5” x 7” are perfect for sending out timely sales promotions and discount coupons. It’s large enough to stand out but handy enough to keep for future reference.
  • 5.5” x 8.5” postcards strike a balance between ample space for information and images without breaking your budget.
  • 6”x 9” is big enough to stand out but also easy to hand out and for customers to keep.
  • 6” x 11” is the largest mailable size available and is sure to get noticed in the pile.


Crisp Cardstock Choices

Each postcard is made from thick and durable cardstock that appears as if they were fresh from the press.

  • 10 pt. -  Our lightweight, flexible cardstock option, similar to paper used in greeting cards.
  • 14 pt. - A common choice for printing postcards in bulk. This thickness is commonly seen on standard business cards.
  • 16 pt. - Slightly thicker and more durable than the last two cardstock options. Its weight is normally felt on formal invitations for weddings and company events.
  • 17 pt. - Our most durable option that gives your postcard an upscale, premium feel. Its weight can be likened to the thicker covers of paperback books.


Four Distinct Finishes

We also offer double-sided postcard printing so you can utilize the space available.

Gloss gives your postcard design the right shine, establishing a balance between the short copy and main image.

Matte is the prime choice for luxury brands or designs that prefer a satin-like appearance. It’s easy on the eyes and guides readers through lengthier text.

High Gloss UV is extra shiny and makes every color pop even from afar.

Uncoated option gives a high-end finish for brands that need a subdued look for their custom postcards.

Hi There! Thank you for choosing Next Day Flyers for your printing needs. If you wish to write on the cardstock, uncoated is the best choice. You may also opt to get our gloss or matte material though if writeability is not guaranteed. If you will be using a permanent marker, you might need to allow the ink to dry up first. Feel free to request some samples here: https://tinyurl.com/3c4fdyuc

Hi CBTD, Thank you for reaching out. The available template we have online does not have the area marked where you can put the postage and address. I will bring this up with our software team so we can request to update it. For now the space you need for the postage and address should be at least 2x3 inches. Thanks,
