Standard Postcard Printing That Personalizes Your Brand

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, Mailable 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 & 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

High Gloss UV

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.

Traditional direct mail specifically targets recipients of a certain demographic and a mailing. EDDM is the less expensive option that targets all the houses in specific neighborhoods. Read up on the benefits of these marketing strategies.


Can you add a logo/trademark and website to the bottom of the postcard? I figure you may have a standard template and I would just want to add to this if possible.

Do the postcards come with the postage already printed on them or do I have to add stamps?

Asked by: Vicki
We can print the indicia/postage on your postcards if this is included in your file (i.e. if you have your own permit and indicia). Otherwise, you may need to add the stamps. We do offer mailing services though where we can print and mail your cards for you. You can check the "Mailing Service" box and click "Continue" to look at mailing options and estimates online. If you need help with this, you can always contact our friendly customer service team for assistance.
