    Which color option should I choose?

    Most postcards are printed full-color on both sides, particularly those that include color images. If your postcards don't contain color images or only have them on one side, you might consider a different option instead.

    Two-color printing, as its name implies, uses two ink colors. One is typically black, but it doesn't have to be. One-color printing uses just a single color of ink. Again, black is most common, but you can choose a different color if you prefer.

    Full-color printing provides the maximum impact and visual appeal for most postcards. However, if your budget is tight, a well-conceived two-color or even one-color design can prove an acceptable alternative.

    What are the size limits for first-class postcards?

    All postcards are not created equal, at least in the eyes of the USPS. In order to qualify for the special first-class postcard rate, a card must be rectangular in shape, at least 3.5 inches high x 5 inches long x 0.007 inches thick, and no more than 4.25 inches high x 6 inches long x 0.016 inches thick. Postcards that do not meet these regulations are treated as normal mail.

    So why would you consider a different size for your postcard? For starters, a larger size stands out better in a pile of mail. It also offers added real estate for offers, images, and text about your products and services.

    If you're not concerned about meeting the USPS guidelines for postcard rates, you might consider a slightly larger postcard (5 x 7, 5.5 x 8.5, or 6 x 9) to take advantage of these added benefits.
