Your Prime Choice for Standard Postcard Printing


Looking for a cost effective but impactful promotional tool for your business? Standard postcard printing is friendly to a small budget but does not sacrifice quality, quantity, and reach. You can deliver several or a large quantity of postcards specific customer addresses or give them away as discount coupons in store to make a big announcement.

We can send out these postcards for you via our direct mail services, letting you target regular customers on your database or potential ones according to a preferred demographic. Apart from their obvious marketing application, standard postcards are versatile enough to showcase brand announcements such as a store launch, personalized birthday discount deals, or the service-specific benefits of a small business.


Which Is the Best Size for My Postcard?


Your postcard’s impact will also depend on its dimensions and how the design utilizes the available space. It’s important to consider how your postcard will be used. Will you be mailing most of your order or will you insert them into bags with every in-store purchase? Here are some of the advantages of our available standard postcard sizes.

  • 4" x 6" is small enough to make a straightforward and easy to read announcement. It’s also easy to keep and qualifies as USPS First-Class mail.
  • 5" x 7" stands out against the smaller, standard postcards sent as personal mail. Its width allows for the right balance among several images and compelling copy. Perfect for promoting a new business or product line.
  • 5.5" x 8.5" has more than enough space for an image-heavy or extremely visual design. Recommended for postcards announcing a sale or special deal available in store or under a limited time period.
  • 6" x 9" is the biggest option among the popular postcard sizes. Suitable for postcards with more than three images or the need to relay information in a straightforward, visual manner.


What is the Advantage of Using Direct Mail Services?


Our direct mail postcards service saves you time and lets you do less leg work. Just provide us with your mailing list and the postcards will be dropped right at your customers' doorsteps. For inquiries about direct mail services for postcards, you can call us at 888-296-5760 or use our live chat to talk to our customer service representatives.

You can also opt to have rounded corners on the postcards to give your design a twist and add shrink wrapping to protect your order during shipping or before mailing. Select our free file check option after uploading your file so that the postcard printing is error-free.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent as Always! I've been coming to Print Runner for over 10 years. As a fine artist, the pre-press as well as the printing needs to be good in order for my work to look good. Several other on-line print resources that I've tried for my printing in the past printed my images below my expectation. After I discovered Print Runner I have been using them ever since because they come through for me with wonderful quality, service, speed and great results!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great quality, quick service, Inexpensive This is our second year using PrintRunner for our Christmas Family Postcard and we're just as pleased this year as we were with last. The website was easy to navigate and the DIY options were straight forward to navigate without needing to be a printing professional. However, the postcards look like we hired a professional! Very pleased with PrintRunner. We'll be using them next year as well (if not sooner).
