6 things you didn’t know you could do with Postcards

Vibrant Postcard designs by @JessPayne - Freelance Graphic and Surface Pattern Designer

Postcards are a super affordable, versatile way to print, well, almost anything and everything! From slick marketing tools to functional product signage, they’re ideal for capturing an important message or making a statement.

Whatever your project, we’ve got the postcard to suit – but if you’re stuck for inspiration, take a look at our six unusual ways to use yours...

Use them as invites

Yes, we know, we already have a whole range of Invitations ready and waiting – but transforming a Postcard into an invite really can be ingenious. Plus, with White Ink and Laser Cutting available for postcards too, creating a unique, compact Postcard Invite that gets everyone excited is easy as pie.

With 15 paper stocks to choose from including textured, shimmer and rustic Kraft, you won’t be stuck for choice either. Or why not check out Trucard? Glossy on one side, mat on the other (ideal for writing on), you can add a photo to one side and pen a personal message on the other.

Create luxurious flyers and handouts

Running a promo or event? Or want to stand out at your next expo or exhibition? Instead of opting for standard Leaflets and Flyers, give your handouts the extra edge by creating them in handy Postcard size (ideal for pocketing) and choose one of our luxuriously thick, textured stocks. They’ll be picked up faster than you can say ‘promo’!

Catch attention with White Ink

Our range of postcards come with the option to add White Ink! But what is White Ink and why do you need it on your Postcards? We’re glad you asked. Let us explain a bit about White Ink. Cyan, magenta, yellow and black are your standard print colours. But, if you're looking for something a little different use one of our striking coloured card stocks and add an extra dimension with White Ink printing. We achieve a White finish by carefully building up layers of special White Ink - applied to our carefully selected, boldly coloured card stocks. This creates a soft, delicate white finish which is as attention grabbing as it is beautiful.

Intriguingly simple, yet unbelievably effective, White Ink printing for postcards really can turn a basic message into something everyone will be impressed by.

Thank You Cards

Ok, so you could just send a card. But why not create your own unique designs that are ideal for pinning on a noticeboard. The unique size of Postcards makes them ideal for whizzing through the mail too. 

Compliment Slips or packaging flourishes

Pop a postcard in with your packages as a thank you note, brand showcase or even as an oversized Business Card with all your details. The larger size of a postcard means they’ll stick around longer, and grab attention as soon as a customer opens their parcel.

Product labels/promo highlights

If you have your own store, shop, café or space, using Postcards to highlight products or promotions can be a great way to draw those wandering eyes in. Use label holders and stick them on your counter top or checkout, leave them in stacks on tables to highlight your special offers or even use their smaller size to slip into folded menus or menu holders.

I use postcards as free promos to enclose with orders - something functional and/or frameable, and hopefully a bit less disposable than a business card!

I never thought of using them like this! I may order some as little thank you notes to put in with customer orders :)
