Postcard printing is one of the most versatile ways to spread a message, catch attention and print your artwork affordably. But, if you’re not sure where to start, check out some of our favourite examples below…
If you think flyers are a bit flimsy and you want something more textured and hardwearing, then Postcards are for you! Photographer? Use some of your images on your Postcard handouts. Etsy seller? Pop a Postcard with your business details and a lovely design in with your customer’s order and voila!
The Royal College of Art do an annual secret postcard sale. Whats the secret? You buy a Postcard but aren’t told who painted it until afterwards. Not only do you have the opportunity to purchase amazing paintings by world renowned artists, but you can also get art by future world renowned artists—the RCA students themselves.
I love PostSecret and if I thought I could get anyone to join me, I’d set up a Printed.com post secret, as I’d love to see what you creative bunch could can up with! For those not in the know, they are Postcards that are sent anonymously and feature art, quotes and if you’re lucky, very juicy secrets which are revealed by the poster.
Photography and exhibition offerings
Postcards aren’t just for the seaside! The A6 size of a Postcard is perfect for people who want to take away a piece of art without having to worry about getting it onto the bus ride home or breaking the bank. With a Postcard, someone can take away a print or painting and treasure it forever.
Save the date
Postcards work amazingly well as Save the Date cards. They can feature a photograph of the couple for a personalised touch, or a stunning hand-painted design by some professional wedding stationer. Either way they are the perfect size to be kept on the fridge.
Postcards were born to be posted through the letterbox and this makes them the perfect direct mail tool. Put some amazing branded design work on the front, some messaging on the back, post it to your audience and let the Postcard work its magic.
