Frequently Asked Questions
How Does Ordering Custom Postcards Online Work?
Ordering postcards online is easy! Our system is designed to allow you to start from scratch and have your postcard order ready to be shipped to you, or mailed directly to your customers within a matter of minutes.
Most of our customers start by creating a design using a program they're familiar with, like Microsoft® Word, PowerPoint, Publisher, or Adobe PhotoShop, Illustrator or Indesign. Use whatever program you like, export it to PDF and upload it to us when you're done. Have a look at our specs and download starter files to speed the process along.
Many other customers don't want to design from scratch, and prefer the ease of using our template system. Find the postcard template category or theme that's relevant to your business, select a front and back, enter some text and upload an image or two, and you'll have a fully customized design within minutes, with no design skill required.
If you're having us mail your postcards directly to people on your address list, we make that easy, too. Once your design is done, upload your address list in almost any common format, and we'll use our system to standardize your list, and address each card individually to your audience. We then mail them out directly from our printing facility, so you can spend your time building relationships with the people who respond to your mailing, rather than waiting in line at post office.
Don't have a list yet? No problem! We offer great prices on highly targeted addresses that can allow you to reach most every consumer or business in the country.
What Sizes Are Available?
Size 1: Regular 4.25" x 5.6" Postcard
This is often also referred to as a 4 x 6 postcard, but the finished card is actually 4 1/4 inches by 5 6/10 tenths inches. That's quite a mouthful, so we typically call them "regular" postcards.
Size 2: Jumbo 5.5" x 8.5" Postcard
Exactly the size of a sheet of office paper folded in half from top to bottom; it's twice the size of a "regular" 4x6 postcard. So if you're looking to make a much bigger impact, this size can help.
Size 3: Block 6.125" x 8.25" Postcard
This postcard meets the size requirements for USPS Every Door Direct Mail
Size 4: Panoramic 5.75" x 11.25" Postcard
This postcard size is a little longer and wider than a sheet of standard office paper folded in half lengthwise. This size and wide format really stands out when used for marketing purposes, and it's also a great size and shape for menu/specials cards.
Size 5: Giant 8.5" x 11" Postcard
If these dimensions seem familiar, it's because they're exactly the same as a standard sheet of office paper. We print postcards in this size, but if you're looking for something this size or larger, you may also want to check our brochure printing options.
How Much Does It Cost?
Having expresscopy.com print and mail your postcards directly to the businesses or residences on your address list is surprisingly affordable. Around $.60 per recipient will get you customized, full-color regular postcards printed, laminated, addressed, postage paid and mailed First Class to your list in about a day. Of course postcard size, quantity and other options may increase or decrease the price per card - direct mail postcard pricing page has all the details.
We've done a lot of homework (a lot of homework) on what other companies charge for this service, and we don't mind telling you that our up-front pricing will leave you a lot less surprised at checkout versus some others who may tell you it'll be $.10 ea before adding on extra fees for paper, ink, lamination, prepping your uploaded design, processing and scrubbing your address list, proofs, and fees for ordering on days that end in "Y", until at checkout, your $.10 postcards are actually costing you $1.25 ea. We want you to use our service again and again, not leave you feeling like you've been tricked into paying more than you expected.
How Long Will My Order Take?
Orders placed by noon Pacific time are mailed or shipped the same day. Orders placed after noon are mailed or shipped the following day. We don't charge extra for "rush" orders, because every order is a rush order. Time is money, as they say, and we start to work on every order as soon as it is placed to save you both. Real people will review your print and address files before they go to press to spot any issues needing attention, which is big part of why customers love our quality, as well as our speed.
We want to hear from you! Whether you have a postcard printing need that you don't want to hunt down an answer for on our FAQ, or just want to call to ask about the weather, our call center in Portland, Ore. is staffed with people who genuinely want to help.
