Direct Mail Postcards are printed on 130# gloss cover, which is a heavy, bright white, coated cover stock with a glossy appearance. We add Gloss UV Coating to the front of your postcards to add shine and provide protection against damage. You cannot write on products with UV Coating.

Bleed: Set your bleed to .125" on all sides

Safe Area: Set your margins to .125" and keep all important elements (logos, text, and images that do not bleed) within these margins

Resolution: 300 PPI for all images is strongly recommended for best print quality

Proofing: After you place your order and upload your artwork, our prepress team will begin inspecting your files to ensure your document size, bleed lines, margins, image resolution, and more are correct in order for the best print quality. They will email you a soft proof (PDF) for your approval prior to printing. Most proofs are sent within 1 business day of order placement; more complex art files can sometimes take longer. Soft proofing is an easy way to see what your finished product will look like and make sure the content is correct. However, soft proofing is not intended for exact color matching. Every monitor displays color differently, and on backlit screens, colors may appear lighter than the actual colors contained in your files. If color matching is critical, please give us a call at 800-227-7377 to order a hard proof.

Production Time: Production time begins after proof approval and is the time required to produce your order before it ships. It is calculated in business days, starting at the next occurrence of 9:00 AM Eastern on the 1st business day after the proof is approved. U.S. Press is closed Saturdays, Sundays and all major holidays; thus, these days are not included in the production schedule.

Mail Delivery Time: Once production is complete, your order will be delivered to USPS and will mail according to the mail class you have selected. All of our orders mail out of Valdosta, Georgia. The USPS map below shows expected delivery time from our Post Office in Valdosta to recipient addresses across the United States based on Presort Standard Mailing. First Class Mail is delivered in 2-5 business days nationwide.
