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.
Print Lion's design team can design a postcard for you that is eye catching and profitable. We offer instant pricing for all our standard printing options.

If you design a postcard in a Word document or Publisher file, we will print it!
When you design a postcard, first consider postcard usage. If it is being mailed as a reminder to friends and family about your wedding date, place the date on both the back and front of every postcard. When using a business postcard as a direct mail piece, make sure that the contact information is easy to find, allowing customers to take the next step and order your products and services. Images of products and services should be placed on the front of the postcard, reminding customers of your business offerings.
Color is an important tool used to design a postcard. A full color front and back, creates a bright postcard that stands out from other mail pieces. A full color front with black ink on the back of your postcard is offered as well as full color on the front with a blank back. Color postcards are the most popular option for postcard orders. If you have questions please use our live chat system. Our free online PDF proofs are not to be used for color accuracy. Therefore, if you design a postcard and color matching is important, please request a hard copy proof.
We offer a high quality 14 point cardstock for our standard postcard stock. Our postcards are UV coated on the front to create a high quality finish for your postcards. Other custom stocks are available.
We offer four standard size options for postcards. They are; 4 X 6, 4.25 X 6, 6 X 9 and 6 X 11. The 4.25 X 6 is our most popular option because it is the largest size to qualify for first class mail. If your postcard is a different size than the standard options, we will still print it! If your postcard is being mailed, discover if the postcard size is accepted by the post master before placing your post card order.

If you need assistance, our design team will design a postcard for you that will be effective and meet your needs. Our design team has worked across many industries and would like to create a postcard with you!
When mailing postcards, it is important to consider how that will affect the placement of your message. A large mailing panel is required for your postcard order. The back panel becomes very important as well, capturing your audience’s attention. Make sure that the benefits being offered are clear. If you are ordering a mailing list or using your current customer base, make sure to address an individual or family in the mailing section. Postcards that are addressed to a specific person at a household or business, give the individual the feeling that the mail piece was created just form them!
Marketing for postcards is important because you have fewer words and less space to present your marketing message than any other marketing piece. Focus on benefits and taglines to increase sales. If you need assistance with marketing, use our experienced marketing department to make your postcard stand out. Use our live chat to get started!
We offer two types of postcard printing. Digital printing and sheet-fed offset printing. For orders of 500 or less we will print your postcards digitally and for orders of over 500 we will print them on a sheet-fed offset printing press. Both types of printing offer high quality printed pieces.
We offer many other services that can affect your postcard design. These services allow you to design a postcard with all of the services you wish to include. For example, if your postcard is die-cut, add that die-cut into your design. We offer laminating, foil stamping, and hole drilling for your postcards. Shipping and blind shipping are available in addition to mailing services. We offer list acquisition service if you need to reach a new audience with your postcard.
