Frequently Asked Questions About Custom Postcard Printing
What type of paper are EnvironPrint postcards printed on?
Our postcards are printed on your choice of three paperstock options: 14 pt, 16 pt, or 18 pt. For tourism and art postcards that will likely be saved by the recipient, choose the thickest paperstock option.
What finish should I choose for my postcards?
If your postcard is being sent as part of a promotion, a gloss finish on both sides is common. For a traditional postcard used for personal correspondence, the standard finishes are matte on one side for writing on and a gloss finish on the other side.
Can I have postcards printed in a size not listed?
Absolutely! EnvironPrint offers a completely custom postcard printing process. To set your own postcard size, simply select the blank option in the drop-down menu for size, then type in the width and height you need in the text fields below.
Can I print on both sides of EnvironPrint postcards?
Yes, two-sided printing is included in the cost of custom postcards. If you don’t need printing on both sides, consider having notecards printed instead.
How can I design my own postcards?
Download our customizable file template to create your postcard design, then upload it to our website when you’re ready to place your order. Even if you don’t have a graphic designer, creating your own postcards is easy. Feature a photograph or illustration on one side and leave space for a message, address, and stamp on the other.
Can you print the addresses of the recipients on my postcards?
If you need to have the recipients’ addresses printed on your postcards, contact us for more details; this type of printing will require a custom order.
Are other postcard shapes available?
Yes! Choose rounded corners for a subtle customization or make a statement with a round or oval postcard—just remember that it may need extra postage when you send it in the mail.
Will you print postage on my postcards?
No, we cannot print postage on your postcards, but we can print Every Door Direct Mail (EDDM) retail indicia on your postcards. This indicia can be downloaded from the United States Postal Service (USPS) website and incorporated into your postcard design.
Are your postcards suitable for EDDM?
Our postcards are printed custom for each of our customers. If you want to ensure that your postcard can be used for an EDDM campaign, make sure you or your graphic designer follow the guidelines on the USPS website and choose the appropriate specifications to meet their requirements.
What is the minimum quantity of postcards that I can order?
At EnvironPrint, our minimum order quantity for postcards is one. This allows you to order a sample postcard to ensure that you’re pleased with the design and finish before you order a large quantity.
