Printing Postcard in a Professional Way

By Andrew Michaels Subscribe to RSS | December 15th 2011 | Views:

They say that because postcards are just a one page paper material, it is actually easier to print and design it. It may be true at some point but if you really do not know the basics of postcard printing, you may end up wasting your time and money.

Some companies would opt to print their own cards to cut the cost for printing these materials. To make sure that this is done properly, you may take note of this information. You will find that these instructions are helpful and easy to understand.

1. Template settings should be properly prepared: You may find these cards easier to print as compared to other printing materials because of its one page feature but it would also take an expert to produce quality cards. That expert could be you. To have a hassle free printings make sure that your settings are set properly. Check the margins, the dimensions and even the bleed if it is according to the standard set by the printer.

2. Accuracy in content: Avoid the rush because you might overlook some important things such as the contents of your card. Make it a point to always proof read the text content of your card. It would be very awful to know that you have made a mistake but too late to correct it because you have already printed a lot of copies. Printing companies would usually give you a draft where you can make certain revisions on the words contained in your card. Make sure to check it from errors and other printing mistakes.

3. Check the design: Always bear in mind that because this is a one page marketing tool for your company, you cannot afford to make a mistake. Avoid unnecessary expenses by making sure that the cards were printed well. Check the color quality of the printed output. See to it that the colors and print that you see from your initial plan is achieved in the final output.

4. Test your materials: If your material is effective, it will eventually draw attention. Since printing volumes of cards for tests could be very expensive, try printing a few cards first and generate feedbacks from your employees, friends and other people whom you know. In this way, you will know if your card will eventually make an impact on other people. Take note of their feedbacks and reconsider your designs or content if you think that will be a great help in coming up with an effective card to promote your products.

5. Top of the line printing materials: The quality of your printing materials is equally important as the design and content of your cards. Cards will be mailed to the homes of your target customers or client which explains why there is a need for you to make sure that the materials you are using are of good quality. Consider whether or not you would need a thicker paper for your card. Some cards need to be strong enough to endure times of handling it and also other elements that may cause it to tear such as water and chemicals.

By taking note of these simple steps, you can eventually print postcards on your own. In that way, you save your company from incurring postcard printing service charges.
