1. What type of files can I upload for my Postcards?
We recommend saving your postcard design as a pdf
You may also send the file in the following types: jpg, jpeg, psd, tif, tiff, eps, ai, and png
We prefer that you send .PDF and .EPS files with outlined fonts. These files are easier to handle and will likely speed up your turn-around. Remember to add crop marks and flatten your postcard files before uploading.
2. What color mode should my Postcards be?
If you send us an RGB file for your postcards, there is a chance that a color shift may occur and you may not be satisfied with your job. You should always start and finish your postcards designs in CMYK color mode.
3. What resolution should my Postcards be?
All files should be 300dpi. Any low resolution files for your postcards will be placed on hold until we receive new files, slowing your turn-around.
4. How should i set up my bleed and crop marks for Postcards?
Bleed must extend further than the cut line. Using one of our postcard templates can help you visualize this. Please keep all text and anything you do not want cut at least .125" away from the cut line. When sending an .eps or .pdf, make sure you include crop marks so we can cut the job correctly.
