Postcards are one of the materials that can be used for various purposes. You can have your own set for personal use or as a form of advertisement.

To make your materials effective, you need to work on their design and invest on printing. Now, standard postcard printing can be expensive unless you know how and where to get cheap postcards.

It may be tricky to get a good set of affordable, high-quality postcards, but it's possible. Here are some quick tips that you can try to save while getting your ideal prints:

Plan your design and layout. Carefully work on your postcard's design and layout. Create your own designs (or ask a friend to help you out) to save cost professional designers). Doing the design yourself will definitely be worth it.

Have your design proofed for free. Some printing companies offer this kind of service. They will check your design and notify you should they find any problems. The most common is bleeding or unnecessary image cropping due to paper size issues. Proofing makes your file print-ready.

Choose your cardstock. The paper type that will be used on your postcard is important. Standard postcards are printed on 14 pt. cardstock gloss or matte or 13 pt. cardstock uncoated. Folded postcards which can be done in half-fold and tri-fold are made of 10 pt. cardstock gloss or 10 pt. cardstock matte. Take time in choosing the right paper type since it affects the overall impact of your postcards.

Go for an online printing company with mailing service. When selecting an online printing company, go for the one that can also provide you with mailing service. This will help you lessen the costs as opposed to mailing them yourself.

Purchase in bulk. If you know that you will send out a lot of postcards to loved ones or clients, then have your material printed in bulk. This is perfect, especially if you're making postcards for the holidays. Ordering in one go is definitely cheaper than ordering intermittently.
