How to Order Professional Printing of Postcards

When you are ready to order professional printing of your postcards, you have three mailing options:

  1. Mail to Your Contacts (direct mail)
  2. Mail to Yourself with Pre-Printed Addresses (mail to me addressed)
  3. Mail to Yourself without Pre-Printed Addresses (mail to me)

1. Mail to Your Contacts

To mail your postcards to your contacts, mark the check box that says Print Mailing Address on Pieces. This will expose your recipient options.

You'll want to keep the mailing option "Mail Directly to Recipients" and here you can choose contacts in your system, or you can upload a mailing list. Regardless of how you add contacts, the minimum order for direct mail is 25 postcards.

Once you have at least 25 addresses for your postcard, you can choose to add "Or Current Resident" to the address, and you can also send 1 to yourself (recommended).

Next you can review your print options:

  • Paper: 100# is the only option for direct mail postcards
  • Finishing: UV coating is a gloss that makes the postcard shiny; the default is 2 sides for direct mail.

When you're finished with your print options, click Add to Cart.

Once you add your items to the card, you will be required to Preview your piece before continuing.

If your design has multiple pages, you’ll be able to scroll through the pages in the Preview window by clicking the arrows on either side of the image. After reviewing the piece, click Approve & Continue to continue to the Shopping Cart.

(warning) It's imperative you review your design - once it goes to print, it's final and there are no refunds or options to stop a print order from being mailed.

Now you'll see your print shopping cart, where you can review all of your print options. Once you've reviewed your order, click Checkout to proceed with placing your print order.

On the checkout page, confirm the billing address and your order details. If everything looks good, click Place Your Order.

2. Mail to Yourself with Pre-Printed Addresses

You can choose to have your postcards pre-printed with selected contacts addresses, and then mailed to you. You will then be able to mail the postcards out when you decide.

To have your postcards addressed, mark the check box that says Print Mailing Address on Pieces.

Next you can review your print options:

  • Paper: 100# is the only option for direct mail postcards
  • Finishing: UV coating is a gloss that makes the postcard shiny; the default is 2 sides for direct mail (some postcard designs will have 1 side as an option, in case you want to write a hand-written note on the back of the postcard).

When you're finished with your print options, click Add to Cart and follow the steps above to complete your order.

3. Mail to Yourself without Pre-Printed Addresses

To order postcards to be mailed to you, so that you can address them as needed, don't check the Print Mailing Addresses on Pieces box and just click Add to Cart.

(info) The minimum order of 25 still applies, even if you are not having them addressed or mailed.

Once you're items have been added to the cart, you can follow the steps above to complete your order.
