Say it with a Postcard

Printed postcards are a great way to get in touch with customers. They are the perfect direct mail option if you have a tight budget. Just design, print and pop them straight in the post; no need for an envelope. In addition to the classic A6 postcard, you can also choose A5, 148x148mm or DL. Create stand-out promotional materials that will really catch your client’s eye.

Postcard printing is made easy with a wealth of substrates and sizes to choose from:

400gsm Silk: The classic choice for postcard printing. Our silk paper will make your designs stand out. If they contain bright images, then you can add a gloss lamination to the front to give vibrancy and protection to your postcard. 

Kraft:  Printed on high-quality 350gsm Kraft paper. This paper contains 10% cocoa shell powder (a waste product from the chocolate industry) which gives a very distinctive natural colour and adds to its rustic appearance. It is also completely recyclable and bio-degradable. 

Uncoated: Make your postcard natural and simple by choosing to print it on 325gsm Mohawk Eggshell. Ideal for writing on and great for a clean, gentle design with muted colours.
