Print & Address
Alternatively, we can print, address, and ship your custom postcards to you via your choice of UPS Next Day Air or UPS Ground. When you receive the printing shipment for your postcard, you can take them to the USPS to mail them.
We can also print your cards and ship them all to you via your choice of UPS Next Day Air or UPS Ground. If you're handing out postcards in person (at a retail store or an event, for example) and you needquality online postcard printing, this is the option you will want. You may also want to visit our postcard printing page if you do not intend to mail your postcards (will not be mailed).

The largest format available for printing and mailing postcards and is also the size of a standard sheet of office paper. It is a very bold and attention-getting postcard size that will often be delivered wrapped around other mail, which means your customers will definitely see it.

Laminated Cover Stock
The laminated cover stock option for postcards applies a slip-film lamination to a heavy cover stock. The lamination protects the cards and the printing on them and provides a high-gloss coating for maximum impact to make your direct mail marketing campaign as eye-catching as possible. The only downside is that the slip-film laminated cards cannot be recycled using traditional recycling.
UV Coated Cover Stock
UV coated cover stock is an aqueous (water-based) coating applied to a heavy cover stock paper, which provides a rich, glossy finish and additional protection against handling versus uncoated paper stock. A UV-coated cover stock does not give 100% of the protection that standard slip-film lamination does. Unlike standard lamination, UV-coated postcards can be recycled curbside in most cities with other paper.
Uncoated Heavy Card Stock
Uncoated heavy card stock is a "card" stock, which is a little heavier than the greeting cards you can buy at the supermarket. Printed postcards that are left uncoated have a smooth, matte surface, and rich colors come out looking great, with a surface you can write on with a pencil or pen. However, because of USPS mail sorting, we do not mail or mass mail postcards printed on uncoated stock, as they are too susceptible to damage while in transit. When you order a postcard printed on uncoated stock, just choose the "shipping" option rather than the mailing option.
Uncoated Cover Stock
Uncoated cover stock is similar to the weight and feel of a typical greeting card. When left uncoated, this stock still shows rich colors but is smooth and matte. This is a great combination of durability and weight for postcard-sized printed pieces that will be handed out or mailed using Every Door Direct Mail, rather than first class™ postcards or standard bulk mail postcards.
Terms like "heavy", "rich", "glossy", and "smooth" are all subjective. If you have any questions about what any of our postcard stock options look or feel like in person, we would love to send you a free sample packet of our postcard printing and paper stock options. Request FREE samples today!
