Postcards that incorporate eye-catching graphics, bright colors and "to the point" copy will attract attention and increase sales. Postcards are cost effective, allowing you to reach out to customers frequently.
Color postcard printing is popular for direct mail today, however color postcards can be used for any number of small businesses or personal use. Many couples use color postcard printing to print save the date announcements. A small business uses postcards to let customers know about sales and to invite them into the store to review new products and services. As an online printing company, Print Lion has created a user friendly website that allows users to receive instant price quotes, upload files and receive a free proof quickly and easily!
When designing color postcards make sure to use the back of the postcard just as thoughtfully as the front. The postcards back is in fact more important because the recipient generally first checks to see to whom the postcard is addressed to. This makes the back panel prime space for special offers and benefits. Also, add your website, address and phone number on the postcard, so that customers have several ways to get in touch with you.
For orders of 500 or less we will print your postcards digitally. For orders of over 500, they will be printed on sheetfed offset print presses. Both types of printing offer high quality printed pieces.
We offer several postcard ink choices. Full color printing allows both sides to be printed in color. This options helps postcards stand out even more. You can also order full color on the front and have black text on the back. The third choice is to offer a full color front with a blank back. For color questions, please use our live chat system to speak with a print professional. Remember that our online PDF proofs are not color accurate, so if color accuracy is important to you please order a hard copy proof with your order.
Our standard postcard stock is a 14 point card stock with a UV coating on one side. We offer all different custom stocks. You can get an estimate for a lighter or heavier stock by filling out a custom quote form.
Four standard postcard sizes are available at Print Lion. Standard sizes are; 4 X 6, 4.25 X 6, 6 X 9 and 6 X 11.

Die-cutting is also available to make your postcard stand out; however make sure to check with the post master to see if it can mail before placing the order.
