If you would like to submit your own custom design to be printed on our postcards, your artwork should measure 4.125 x 6.125 inches. The final cut size will be 4 x 6 inches.
Your art should be created and exported at 300 DPI resolution in CMYK color. Important text or images that you do not want cut off should be located at least 0.2 inches away from the cut lines.
If you are submitting exported images, please submit one image each of the front and back. You may either submit your files by clicking the "Upload File" button when setting up your order, or email your files to firstname.lastname@example.org.
You may submit your design or logo file as:
- JPG, TIFF, or PNG (full size, 300DPI)
- Adobe Illustrator (convert all text to outlines)
- CorelDraw Ver. 12 or earlier (convert all text to curves)
- PDF (covert all text to outlines/curves before saving to prevent font issues)
If you wish to submit mock-up art to guide us as we create you a custom design, you may submit the file as any of the above, or:
- Microsoft Word
- OpenOffice or LibreOffice
- MS Publisher
- Illustrator, Photoshop, CorelDraw
Creating your own print-ready design?
Both sides of the 4 x 6 inch surface may be printed upon. However, the area on the back two inches from the bottom, and 4 inches from the right side of the card must be left white in order to mail the card. Any background color or images that you wish to have printed all the way to the edge should extend 0.0625 inches beyond the 4 x 6 inches for a total bleed-sized art piece measuring 4.125 x 6.125 inches (4 x 6 inches + 0.0625 inches extra on all sides). We recommend that most text be sized at least 10 points for best readability.
Customizing one of our designs?
Edits are limited by available space. Most templates already contain close to the maximum amount of information possible before text cannot be comfortably read. Considering this, we suggest that you do not add much more information to a template. It is best to start by changing existing elements before trying to add new ones. If you need even more info included but feel you may be running out of space, try looking at the design and decide if there are elements that you could do without. Little changes, such as removing a dividing line, can often free a bit of space.
