Four Paper Types
- Gloss Paper (80# Text) – This lightweight paper stock feels similar to the inner pages of the typical magazine.
- Matte Paper (70# Text) – Uncoated paper is excellent when the shine of gloss paper is undesired.
- Gloss Card (110# Cover) – Popular for postcards and artwork, our heavy and glossy card stock hosts rich colors.
- Matte Card (100# Cover) – An artist favorite, the matte card is an elegant and uncoated alternative to gloss.
The term “text” is an indication of lightweight paper and is generally used for cheap flyers. Furthermore, “cover” papers are heavier and more appropriate for postcards and artwork.
Turnaround (Business Days)
25 to 1000 - 2 days
1250 and up - 3 days
Rush turnaround for 5.5x8.5 cards is available in the "Design / Rush" option list. Rush orders are usually shipped one day early. Please let us know if you have a deadline.
By default, we now only email digital proofs if we notice problems with artwork. If there are issues concerning bleed, resolution, and size, we will contact you and email a PDF proof showing our concerns (frequently within 4 to 6 business hours). Otherwise, your artwork will move straight to production. We check and observe all artwork before printing to ensure your 100% satisfaction.
Upon request, we are happy to provide proofing - leave us a note in the messages area or contact us. Digital proofs will alter turnaround by adding one extra day (not including approval time). Turnaround time begins once the art is approved.
To help you visualize bleed areas for 5.5" x 8.5" postcards, we provide a PDF template to place art. Please note that the file is 5.75" x 8.75".
Half the size of a standard 8.5x11 sheet, 5.5x8.5 postcards are effectively utilized by businesses, entrepreneurs, and artists since they are cheaper alternatives to full sheets and are more versatile. They can be flyers, cards, hand-outs, slip-ins, and mailers, allowing for multi-purpose possibilities.
"I'm an artist and illustrator so the color, clarity, and quality are really important to me. These postcards are perfect. Every detail. The card stock, the printing, the color. I am speechless. Thank you for providing this high-quality service at such amazing prices. AND on top of that, making the customer service experience one I'll remember because of how easily you helped me out. Many, many, many thanks. I will be back time and time again and tell everyone which online printer to use. BIG high fives." - J. Miller

We configure shipping fees during the checkout process. You can select from a list of UPS and USPS methods for most postcards and flyer deliveries. Cards and flyers are shrink-wrapped in stacks and surrounded by bubble wrap inside a durable shipping box resulting in safe transportation (99% of the time). We also add chipboard to 5.5x8.5 paper flyer stacks for extra protection.
