1. Determine Your Printing Needs
You can provide us with photos and text to create a layout for your card or you can have someone design your card for you. if required, your designer can download layout templates in the "Specs" section of our site. There are 2 methods for printing postcards;
traditional or digital. These options are selected automatically for you based on the quantity and item you are printing.
Traditional printing is more cost effective than digital printing for larger quantities (5000+) and has a 2-3 business day turn-around.* Our postcards are printed on a 14-point card stock with full color glossy front and back. The minimum quantity is 1,000 and the full quantity must be the same design.
Digital printing offers more features (eg. variable data, a choice of paper, high gloss finish) and has a 24-48 hour turn-around.* Digital printing is perfect for small quantities and quick turn-around. Any size up to 14x20.
• Jobs submitted after 2pm are considered as submitted the following day.
• The design must be the same for the full quantity of cards that you are ordering. (i.e. an order of 5000 cards must be one design, not 2000 of one and 3000 of another).
• Cards requiring design, scanning, or file correction will be considered submitted when complete and/or signed off by the customer.
