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.

                Great work Emil 19.09.2020

                Great work and faster than said

                Fantastic prices, quality and service SS 18.09.2020

                Ordered three large 80 x 60 prints on Forex. Service was brilliant from the start when I wasn't happy with their digital proof for one of my images. They adjusted it and reuploaded the proof and went even further to show me comparisons in Adobe Print Inspector for the colour values between my original image and their digital proof. Given a delivery date for a week later, prints turned up within three days which was a nice surprise. The quality of the prints was great. Really happy with everything.

                Absolutely 1st class in terms of ease… Gramps 18.09.2020

                Absolutely 1st class in terms of ease of use, quality and value. It was all so fast and efficient. If you want a simple online service for your printing needs I would suggest this is going to meet most needs. Well done (virtual) team.

                I was so pleased with the books Hello print printed for me. The quality was fab, very reasonably priced and prompt completion and delivery. I shall use them for all my large printing work.

                Just the best and only printers we will ever use. Gio 7.09.2020

                We've used dozens of printers over the years for our sports organisation and have always found the costing to be hard to navigate and hidden behind quotes, or the artwork process even more tedious and frustrating. Too many printers won't provide decent proofs/mockups or assist with any of the artwork being provided. Helloprint are genuinely 'spot on' in all respects. Whether it's standard printing or merchandising, there's nobody we can find who provides such a straightforward, transparent, clearly-priced process. What's more is we have found their artwork revision process to be invaluable. More than once they have revised our artwork for us to make it fit the product better, and the review process leaves no room for error. It's an absolutely fantastic service and company with very fast turnaround and excellent product quality. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend them.

                Amazing quality, fast turnaround! Jenny Butters 7.09.2020

                Helloprint is now the go-to supplier for my small business. The quality is great every time and the items always arrive before expected. So happy to have finally found a company I can rely on! The team is always super helpful too. Thank you!

                Perfect! Gazlar 16.08.2020

                They turned my order for a foamboard sign around in under 24 hours, arriving extremely well packaged the next morning and saving me from having to open my shop without a sign after another printer let me down. Awesome service and the price was very reasonable =) Cheers guys!

                I have used Helloprint 3 times so far to print our charity Newsletter, can't fault the service, the price or the end product.

                Great speedy service Ellen SJ Kerbey 14.08.2020

                Purchased a customised jacket, came within the two estimated weeks and looks great. Very helpful customer service too.

                Great! Hollie McKeown 14.08.2020

                I was hesitant about ordering my invites initially as I was wanting to order just a sample to see what it was going to look like however they arrived and they were brilliant! Far better than I thought they would be. They arrived 4 days before they were expected to.

                Top notch :) STEPHEN HUTCHINGS 12.08.2020

                Speedy service. The online ordering is straightforward and reassuring. Print delivered earlier than I expected and of first class quality. Will certainly use Helloprint again.

                Great Products Lauren 12.08.2020

                I have ordered a few things from hello print and everything has come out beautifully and so quickly! I was concerned when I was uploading my designs as I'm no graphic designer so I wasn't sure how it would come out, but I had nothing to worry about as they had specifications to ensure good quality printing. I will definitely be using them again!
