Postcard Bleed Graphic Design

Graphic Design Tips and Guidelines for Postcards

The bleed in prints refers to the edge of a print where you can let your artwork “spill over”. Extending your artwork through the bleed line prevents unnecessary cropping on your design. For example, if you want to create a 4” x 6” postcard and want your background image to cover the whole print, this image should be 4.25” x 6.25”. This adds 1/8” on each side of your card. We require a 1/8” bleed (we’ll add a bleed if your design doesn’t have one) for your designs. Below is a sample of our template that can guide you in designing standard and folded postcards.
