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 (normally within 4-6 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 a proof - just leave us a note or contact us. Digital proofs will alter turnaround by adding 1 extra day (not including approval time). Turnaround time begins once the art is approved.
To help you visualize bleed areas for 5.5x8.5 postcards, we provide a PDF template to place art into. Please note that the file is actually 5.75x8.75.

"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
Shipping fees are configured during the checkout process. We utilize UPS and USPS for most postcard 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). Chipboard is added to 5.5x8.5 paper flyer stacks for extra protection.
