KainosPrint offers postcards in three sizes, the commonly used 150x100mm size, an economical jumbo 175x125mm size that takes maximum advantage of our press sheet size and a DL postcard — 99x210mm. Postcards are always printed in full colour on the front, but can be full colour, black and white, or blank on the reverse side. Postcards are available in three heavy card stock sizes — 300gsm gloss, 305gsm single sided super gloss or 310gsm Pearl Artboard. If your postcards have full colour images on both sides, we recommend the 310gsm Pearl Artboard. If you want your postcards to be printed in black and white on the reverse side and if you want to be able to write on them, our single sided super gloss is a good option.
We can supply envelopes for all sizes of postcards
You can have up to eight standard postcard designs, four jumbo postcard designs or six DL postcard designs for the cost of the total number of cards (two, four, six or eight designs). For instance, you could order 250 each of four different standard designs, and pay the 1000 card rate. If your postcard prints right to the edge of the page, please be sure to supply your file with bleeds. Click here to go to our explanatory page on bleeds.
