Postcard printing can be used to create personal or professional styles of postcards. Postcards are most commonly used tools for sending greetings by mail. They include a picture or graphic on one side of the card, and a blank area for writing on the other side of the card. Postcards can be printed on your own if you have the right tools, or you can obtain the services of a printing company.

Postcard Printing Possibilities

There are many choices to make when considering postcard printing. Most postcards are printed onto high-quality, glossy card stock. You can choose from other types of card stock, but the glossy stock often looks more professional. You can also choose from various sizing possibilities for postcards. 4x6 and 5x7 postcard sizes are the most common, but you can go slightly larger or smaller with your postcard design as well.

With postcard printing, you can choose to use a personal photograph, artwork, a professional photograph, or a custom graphic on the front side. Four-color printing can be used to create crisp and dazzling colors on your postcard. For the back side of your postcard, you can choose from a four-color print, black and white print, or to simply leave the side blank.

You can choose to print custom postcards for various reasons. Some people will print personal postcards to send a more personal greeting by mail. Many people choose to print family pictures onto postcards and to send them out during the holidays. Postcards can also be printed for business purposes. They can be used to advertise a business or product through targeted mailing.
