Amazing Postcards

Who doesn’t like postcards? From bands advertising gigs to small tourist shops, just think of the possibilities of stocking your very own, unique cards that aren’t available anywhere else. We have created postcards for universities, charities, bands and live music nights, artist, designers and shops that sell postcards and wanted to offer unique designs to their customers.

  • A6 size postcards
  • Available printed single or double sided
  • 350gsm paper stock
  • Gloss lamination on the front

Try our A6 flyers if you want other (less traditional postcard) options

Need More Options?

These are designed to be like actual postcards, however, if you would like more options of paper-weight, paper-stock and lamination finishes, then please see out flyer section as flyers are available in A6 postcard size also. But you could also make them any size!

Great Postcard Uses

Postcards for Bands

Live bands, musicians, venues and groups often use postcards to market their gigs – they are the perfect size to allow for an attractive design and decent amount of copy text while also being pocket size. But it’s not just to publicise! They also make a great souvenir or low-cost merchandise for bands.

Artists Postcards

Postcards are a great way to show of artists work, printing their work on a custom postcard is a great way to publicise themselves and a way to make some income when people can’t afford the actual art – think museum or art gallery – chances are they sell postcards in their gift-shop. It’s the same principle. Whenever I go to a creative expo such as comic con, MCM Expo or designer con, there are always artists and designers selling their postcards.

Custom Tourist Postcards

If you are a small or independent shop with tourist attractions nearby, you may well want to create and sell your custom postcard designs. We offer a great, low-cost way of stocking your very own unique souvenir postcards – a great way to keep people coming back.

Print Terms Glossary

 GSM

“grams per square metre”. Our standard paper weight for magazines or brochures is 150gsm, business cards are around 400 gsm, computer printers normally use 90gsm.

Gloss, Silk, and Matt coated paper.

These papers have a clay coating which is finished with different textures that are great for printing and give a fantastic vibrancy to the colour or black & white images.

Matt Uncoated paper.

A Matt paper with no noticeable finish which is ideal for writing on and is commonly used for letterheads and compliment slips.

pp. (Printed Pages).

4pp, 8pp, 12pp etc. As an example, an A4 piece of paper folded in half is a 4pp A5 because it has 4 individual sides, each one A5 in size. Therefore, any books you want must be multiples of four, ie., 4, 8, 12, 16, 20pp etc.

Colour

CMYK

Stands for ‘Cyan, Magenta, Yellow and Key (black)”, the colour gamut used by printers which determine the range of colours that can be reproduced.
Computer screens work on an RGB – ‘Red, Green and Blue’ – colour gamut, which offers a larger range.
Some colours, particularly bright or fluorescent ones are not achievable when using a CMYK printing process and prints will look different to how they appear on a screen. This is why it is important that your artwork is designed in CMYK as RGB colours will be converted to their closest CMYK substitute.

Lamination

Lamination finishes work with a plastic coating in various finishes that gives your work a rich brighter look and more protection from everyday use.

Matt lamination

Is a subdued finish that softens colours and adds a smooth texture, ideal for a sophisticated, modern look.

Gloss lamination

Is a high gloss finish that is ultra shiny. It makes colours vibrant, rich punchy, ideal for photographic images.

Soft touch lamination

Gives a very nice feel likened to the texture of a peach. Colours appear deeper and richer than with Matt lamination. A finish that gives your print the utmost in luxury.

Paper Size

As a customer, you don’t normally have to worry about paper size unless it’s to choose a size of poster or – on a smaller scale – a size of booklet or flyer.
Starting with the most commonly used size – A4 (210mm x 297mm), you just double the shortest edge to take you to the next size which is A3 (420mm x 297mm) or half the longest edge to take you down to A5 (210mm x 148mm). So from A5 we go down to A6 (105mm x 148mm) and then A7 (105mm x 74mm). From A3 we go to A2 (420mm x 584mm) and then A1 (584mm x 820mm) and finally to A0 (820mm x 1168mm). There are of course other larger sizes but these are less common in everyday print and you probably won’t need them, however, there are commonly used smaller and ‘different’ sizes such as DL (210mm x 99mm) and business card (55mm x 85mm).

Short Run printing.

For short runs – normally up to 500 copies – we supply digitally printed copies, which gives us great flexibility for customers requirements so that you only need to buy the quantity you need.

Lithographic printing.

For everything over 500 copies, lithography is the world standard for high volume printing and the more you buy, the cheaper the unit price becomes. We use this method for large runs of printed material.

Poster printing.

Never before have large format posters been (financially) within reach of the smaller business, but with our amazingly low prices, A0 or smaller posters are real tools to be utilised by businesses of any size.

Roller banners.

Our roller banners are some of the most cost effective around and with one of our fantastic designs, you will be ready for any marketing opportunity that comes your way.

Vinyl banners (inside or outside).

If it’s an economical, large format sign that your company needs, then a vinyl banner can be an amazing addition to your advertising arsenal. We can supply some of the cheapest ‘bespoke’ designed banners in the south of England and in vinyl weights from 440gsm through 350gsm mesh, to 700gsm double sided banners.

Foam board 3 or 5mm.

For a more permanent looking sign foam board fits the bill for many uses.
It is very light and can be stuck to walls using double sided tape, or framed to appear more pleasing and substantial.

Aluminium Di-bond signage.

Di-bond is two sheets of aluminium with a polyvinyl core, which makes for a very high-quality sign which will withstand the forces of nature for a long time and still look as good as new.
The signs are supplied with screw holes for fitting.
