Frequently asked questions

Q: Do the 4.72" x 7.48" envelopes fit the 5”x 7” postcards? 
A: No. Because of the size difference, the 4.72" x 7.48" envelopes will not fit into our 5 "x 7" postcards. The only option would be to use the 6”x 9” which would most likely be too big. Also, please keep in mind that our postcards don’t come with envelopes.

Q: Do you offer matching designs, and can you create a custom design for me? 
A: Yes. We do offer a wide selection of postcard templates categorized by industry. Click on “Start Designing” to explore them. Also, our design experts can create a unique design for you if you had something different in mind. Click on the “Design Services” feature on the top bar and submit your request.

Q: Can I use my own design? 
A: Yes.After you make your initial selection –postcard size, orientation, paper weight, paper stock and quantity – click on start designing and you’ll be able to upload your postcard design. You can also choose one of our professionally designed templates for different industries like real estate postcards, and special celebrations like Christmas postcards and Thank-you postcards.

Q: Will you send me a proof before printing? 
A: Yes, we offer a PDF proof feature that allows you to see how your personalized postcard will look when printed and detect any errors before completing your order. On the design page click the “Proof” button on the top menu.

Q: Can I write on the back of the postcard? 
A: Yes, but we recommend choosing uncoated or recycled paper stock for the best results.
