Greeting Cards and Postcards

Greeting Cards and Postcards are available in Standard and Premium stocks. The standard stock is an acid-free, smooth card, 110 lb, in both Bright White and Ivory. The Premium stock is an acid-free, 100% cotton, slightly textured, 118 lb card, in both Bright White and Natural White. All card stocks are 100% made in America.

The Greeting Cards templates are supplied in Portrait orientation, rotate them as needed for a Landscape card. Postcards templates are supplied in Landscape orientation, rotate them as needed for a Portrait card. The templates use the same approximate  width/length ratio (1:1.4), so you only need to create one design for the largest card and then shrink the design to fit on the other cards in the Product Design Room after uploading the design to your Design Storage Room. Templates are provided below to assist you in fitting your design properly.

Greeting Cards and Postcards are provided as printed on only one side, or, for an extra charge, double-sided. The Postcard Template assumes you are going to use the Reverse side as an Address Side and is sectioned to reflect U.S. Post Office mailing regulations. Be sure to double-check designs on the Address Side to the Post Office restrictions! If you do not intend to use the Postcard as a mailer you can ignore the Post Office restrictions.

If you select “Half-Fold” in the Design Product Studio, the Greeting Cards will be scored for easy folding, but will be supplied to the customer flat.

Envelopes are available — Announcement (flat flaps) or Invitation/Baronial (pointed flap) styles — for the cards.

For all templates:

  • The RED dashed line is the bleed line. If you want your image/text to extend to the edge of the trimmed card, it must extend to cover this red line.
  • The BLUE dashed line is the trim line. This is where the card will be cut. Any important image and/or text that extends to this line might be cut off in the trimming process.
  • The GREEN dashed line is the “Safe Area.” All important image elements and text MUST be inside this line.
  • The GRAY dotted line is the fold line for the greeting card. Do not allow any part of the image or text to cross this line unless you intend for it appear on BOTH front and back of the card.
  • The Safe Area for the fold is indicated by the GRAY dashed lines. Keep all important image elements and text outside these lines.
