With a selection of shiny colours to choose from – whatever your project, we’ve got Foiled Postcards to suit every need, so get inspired with these five unique ways to use yours, right here.

If you’re new here, you might not know just how much we love Foil as a finish. If you notice print with distincitve shiny accents, then we’ll bet you our bottom dollar it’s been foiled. Used to add a luxury feel to designs, it’s the perfect finish for everything from Business Cards to Invitations and, of course, Postcards.

The easy, affordable, and super versatile way to print, they’re a geat tool for almost anything and everything! From slick marketing tools to functional product signage, they’re ideal for capturing an important message or making a statement- especially when you add foil.

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 new Foiling, 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, matte 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’!

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.

Foiled Postcards as Thank you cards

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. We love how The Curious Department use their postcards to create certificates of authenticity – it’s a fab idea that adds an extra layer of luxury to their products!

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.
