USPS Mailing Guidelines

UPrinting helps with your postcard mailing campaign by providing United States Postal Service (USPS) Mailing Guidelines. Provide a 2" x 4" white space on the mailing side for recipient's address and barcode. Submit your mailing list or buy one from us. We evaluate mailing lists to validate addresses and remove duplicates. Our mailing service and preparation will add 2 to 3 days on your postcard printing turnaround.

Design File

There are two ways to create postcards with UPrinting:

For standard and folded postcards, you can upload your pre-made design. Input the specs you need in our Instant Price Calculator before upload your file. We accept design files in JPG, PNG, TIFF, PDF, InDesign, and Publisher formats. You can upload 2-sided PDF or separate designs for front and back of your postcards. Make sure that your design contains high-quality and high-resolution photos (300 dpi). Confirm project details and specifications before proceeding with your order. Choose a proofing option to ensure that your file is print-ready.

If you are working on standard postcards and don’t have a design yet, you can create a layout with our Easy Design Tool. After selecting postcard size, paper and quantity, you can upload your own image or buy from our stock images. Add text, shapes and change background colors to suit your application. Check the generated preview and choose a proofing option. Approve your proof and proceed to payment, so we can begin with the production.
