Submission specifications for Postcard Designs

Add 3 mm bleed.
To allow leeway for cutting differences in production, always add a bleed of 3 mm around all edges of your design. Make sure colours, background pictures and layouts extend into the bleed area so as to avoid leaving white lines as a result of cutting tolerances.
Keep 4 mm safety margin
Keep all important text and images at least 4 mm away from the edge of the finished size.
Resolution of at least 300 dpi.
Make sure the resolution of the images and graphics in your artwork are at least 300 dpi.
Use CMYK as the color mode.
Prepare your files using CMYK as the color mode, not RGB. Use colormode FOGRA39 (ISO Coated v2) for coated papertypes and colormode FOGRA47 (PSO Uncoated ISO12647) for uncoated papertypes. If you are unsure of the colour mode of your file, don't worry we can always convert this for you. Keep in mind this can cause the colours to differ from the original file.
Use the right values for full color black.
Use Rich Black (C:63% M:52% Y:51% K:100%) for larger areas and text to get a deep black color. Do not use this value for text smaller than 15 pt or plain text. This can only be used in full color printing. For designing black smaller texts use 100% black.
Save your files in uneditable, print-ready file formats.
Save your files in uneditable, print-ready file formats (PDF (1.4 or higher), TIFF, EPS, JPG). Deliver your files in one layer: the background layer.
Convert fonts to outlines or embed all the fonts.
Make sure you convert fonts to outlines or embed all the fonts when saving it to PDF.
Fonts should be at least 6pt.
Fonts should be at least 6 pt.
Make sure the ink coverage isn't higher than 300%.
Force Color Images to CMYK with a 260% ink limit (in Photoshop > Convert Color Profile > Photoshop 5 Default CMYK). Make sure the ink coverage isn't higher than 300%.
Lines should be at least 0.25 pt.
Lines should be at least 0.25 pt. Negative lines should be at least 0.5 pt.
Check your artwork on overprint.
Make sure no elements in your artwork are set on overprint. Unless you want this effect in your design. The degree of transparency in printing depends on the ink, paper, and printing method used.

Frequently asked questions for Postcard Designs

Will my Postcard Designs be folded?
  • No, your Postcard Designs will not be folded. Looking for folded cards? Please have a look at our greeting cards.
    Which materials can I choose from?
    • 285 GSM artboard + high grade UV varnish: This paper combines clear white paper with the robustness of carton. The UV varnish layer protects the paper and adds a shiny coating which results in a beautifull and profesionnal look.
      What is this product exactly? And what can I use it for?
      • Postcard Designs are paper cards which you can get printed completely to your wishes, and is available in A5 and A6 format with a choice of options and finishing for both the front and reverse sides.
      • This product is used to / as:
        • Promote discounts or events
      • Personally communicate with customers
      • Notify others of your upcoming events
        What is the fastest possible turnaround?
        • The fastest possible turnaround for Postcard Designs is:
        • Nextday
        • Note only applicable for products which require your design: To make sure that your order is delivered at the indicated time, it is important that we receive your file with your design for the product, on time (also called cut-off time). In this way the product can be put into production on time. The deadline is always communicated in the yellow bar on the product page, above the "Add to shopping cart" button.
        • The cut-off time for your printed item may vary. This depends on the combination you choose. This has to do with the manufacturing technique and / or the order quantities.
        • NOTE: The product delivery shifts a day every time the deadline for submission has passed. This is also the case if the file is rejected by us and corrected artwork isn't supplied before the next cut off time.
          Which production techniques do you use?
          • For the production of your Postcard Designs we use the following production technique(s):

          • Digital printing uses four colours (CMYK) with toners and inks to print digital files. This option is comparable to large home printer, and is cheaper than ‘litho’ printing for smaller quantities. This is because there are less starting costs, less components involved, and no ink drying time necessary.
            Which carriers are used for the delivery?
            • For the delivery of your postcard designs we use multiple carriers. Because of the highest reliability, in most cases we use UPS or DPD.
            • Other carriers we use are DHL and even our own courier service. These carriers are used for certain products (depending on the size, the turnaround and the quantity).
              Will my postcards be printed on both sides?
              • No, your postcards are not automatically printed on both sides. We offer three possibilities for your postcards: Blank backside: Your postcards will be printed on one side only. Note: You only have to send us the file for the front side. Personalised backside: Your postcards will be printed on both sides. Both sides do not need to have the same design. Standard backside: Your postcards will be printed on both sides. The front will have your design, and the back will have a standard postcard design. Note: You only have to send us the file for the front side.
                I can't find the product I'm looking for. Can I request a quotation?
                • The Postcard Designs that is chosen in most cases can be selected via our website.
                • If your material type, weight, quantity, size or other specification is not listed, you can request a quotation. We will send you our offer within 1 working day.
                • Depending on the complexity this can take a bit longer.

                Truly great printers Frank 24.01.2021

                Truly great printers. Have been using them for almost 3 years and they always deliver on time and when things go wrong, they bend backwards to guarantee quality products and support for any shortcomings. Highly recommended!

                Customised birthday cards trevor steward 21.01.2021

                Easy site to use, very quick delivery, especially in these times. Fantastic quality and price. Will definitely be using again in the future

                Fantastic service! Great value for money too Louise Wilson 18.01.2021

                I've worked in the advertising industry for 30+yrs so have seen both good and bad print jobs, so I was understandably sceptic about what I would be getting for £20.... HOWEVER I was extremely impressed!!!!! 500 double sided business cards for £22 (I provided the artwork) and they are as good as, or even better then what I've seen over the years. An added bonus is they arrived within two days! Will definitely use again - thank you.

                Ordered some stickers for by small business - realised they were the wrong size ... and received super-helpful, friendly and quick customer service to rectify the problem. When the stickers arrived (following pre-emptive apologies for the delay due to covid) they were perfect! As companies go, they are a joy to deal with. Thank You!

                Ideal for my thank you slips! Kate 14.01.2021

                I've ordered three times now from HelloPrint - I have a small business on Etsy so I use them to create my thank you packing slips to pop in with my orders. It's really easy to upload your design and each time they've been made and delivered to me really quickly with no issues at all! Their prices are the best I've found, with the quality and overall service being brilliant. Thanks so much for helping my little business flourish :)

                I've used Helloprint for dozens of small run orders for several years and have been very happy with every order. Recently there was a problem with my order, a random error had two pages switched. I passed this on and have to say the customer service was phenomenal. Fast and efficient. Brilliant company and excellent communications, especially Angela!

                My second time using Hello Print and I wasn't disappointed! I ordered 500 business cards and 50 flyers on the 29th and they arrived on the 2nd, despite saying they would arrive on the 12th. High quality, super speedy, affordable, great customer service and the check was done within 5 minutes and very helpful, will definitely order again!
