We want to make sure your custom postcard print project goes how you envision it. Email us at, and request a template for the size postcard you are wanting. Be sure to use our layout guides to ensure your pdf file(s) is set up correctly for best printing results.

Safe Area
Text and other design elements that you don’t want to get trimmed in the final production of your custom postcard print job should stay within this area. The safe area is minimally 1/8″ from the Trim Line.

Trim Line
This is where the finished product will be cut for its final size.

Bleed Area
This is the area that is going to be cut off in final production. Make sure this area is filled with background image and/or color so there is no white space left when it is trimmed.

Address Area and Indicia Area
Addressing Area is the area that is going to be used for addressing your postcard for mailing. The indicia area is where your postage goes, whether a stamp or a printed indicia. The Post Office has requirements for different size postcards that must be met.

Color and Resolution
CMYK is preferred and recommended. If you upload your file in RGB color mode it will be converted to CMYK and the final product could end up differently than expected. Files should be at least 300 dpi at 100% of the finished size for best print quality.

File Types Accepted
We prefer PDF files but also accept PSD, JPG, TIF, EPS, PNG or AI. Files should include crop marks and have bleeds extended out 1/8” if the images is going to print all the way to the edge of the card.
