4.25x5.5 Postcards / Flyers
4.25x5.5 Postcards / Flyers
Printkeg prints "quarter sheet" sized custom cards using heavyweight gloss, matte, or textured cardstocks - three distinct choices to display beautiful artwork. Artists tend to favor 4.25x5.5 since envelopes, frames, and mattes are widely compatible.
4.25x5.5 postcards are also highly effective in gaining customer attention. They are also far more economical than trying to print full-sized 8.5x11 or 5.5x8.5 flyers.

How Long It Takes To Ship (Turnaround)
Select one of three turnaround options for deadline-conscious customers. The first turnaround begins on the next business day (as long as the current day is a business day). Art concerns, billing issues, and digital proofs can extend the turnaround time.
Visualize Your Art With a PDF Proof
We email digital proofs when we spot artwork problems or a customer requests one. Remember, a PK representative will contact you if there are issues concerning bleed, resolution, and size. For $5, we will email a PDF proof showing the bleed area and estimated cut lines. Otherwise, the artwork will move straight to production. We check and observe all artwork before printing to ensure 100% customer satisfaction.
Digital proofs will alter turnaround by adding one extra day (not including approval time). Turnaround time begins once the art is approved.
These Art Guidelines Improve The Print Quality of Your 4.25" x 5.5" Cards.
If the following specifications seem Klingon to you, don't allow that to dissuade you from ordering prints. Our friendly staff reviews all artwork to make sure your cards print sharply. If we can't resolve art issues promptly, one of our team members will reach out.
- Set your art file with 4.5" x 5.75" dimensions. Remember to keep important content at least 0.25 inches away from the edges. The pixel count for your file should be at least 1350 x 1725.
- When beginning a new design, check if you are working in a 300dpi environment. Many graphic software giants default at 72dpi (Adobe Photoshop) and 132dpi (Procreate). Increasing the quality setting to 300dpi or higher before you begin working is critical to print quality.
- We prefer PDF or JPG file formats. However, our team will accept other file types, such as PNG and TIF.
- Try designing your art in CMYK color mode. Before printing 4.25" x 5.5" flyers and postcards, we convert all files to CMYK. Many artists unwittingly work in RGB, a color mode for digital media. Conversion can lead to softened or undesired color changes.
A Template May Help You Visualize Bleed Area
What is a bleed area? This extra area allows us to create edge-to-edge printing. Your file should be a little larger than the final print size.
To help set up your 4.25" x 5.5" postcards, we offer the below PDF template to place your art. You will notice that the file is 4.5" x 5.75", providing that extra "bleed" area we need. Remember to keep essential elements 0.25 inches away from the edges.
