8.5x11 on Coverstock (Postcards)

 

There are generally two types of postcards (see below for brochure cards):

4-up (4.25 x 5.5) use the whole 8.5x11 sheet of paper. A .25" white margin is incorporated around the whole postcard so only two cuts are made - one vertical, one horizontal.

2-up (either 4x6 or 5x7) use part of the 8.5x11 sheet. Crop marks are placed for trimming. These postcards do not have to have a white border. They can have color all the way to the edge.

 

If you need a postcard created, send us the text and images that you'd like included and we'll create it for you. If you need us to find images for you, we can do that too. The job request form also has an option for lamination.

 

* We can also design postcards that are sent to an outside vendor for printing (like Primo Cards or Vistaprint). The Communication Design students recommend Primo Cards for nice thick postcards. I have some examples in my office (Bulger basement, room 104).

Brochure Cards

Brochure Cards are just like postcards, but different shapes/sizes.

2-up (4.25 x 11) uses the whole 8.5x11 sheet of paper. A .25" white margin is incorporated around the whole card so only one vertical cut is made. These can be one or two-sided.

2-up (5.5x8.5) uses the whole 8.5x11 sheet. A .25" white margin is incorporated around the whole card so only one horizontal cut is made. These can be one or two-sided.
