What Does AQ, UV, Etc. mean?
These are different types of gloss finishes. AQ means glossy, UV mean high gloss. We could explain it further, but it's much better to see for yourself. Most of our products have a product video.
How Long Will it Take?
Postcard printing usually takes 4-5 business days (this is just a general guideline) but rush orders are sometimes available. This does NOT factor in your file preparation time or shipping times all of which can vary dramatically. Please call for a more complete turnaround estimate at 1-888-587-2383 ext 1.
Here's the most common file prep questions and their answers:

A: Yes!! We can design your Postcard for a flat fee of just $94. Read more.

It's my first order. How does this work?
This is a common question. Here is a step-by-step walk-through:
- You can add products to your cart and checkout online or you ca call us to order at 1-888-587-2383.
- If ordering from our website, you will be asked to upload print files for your products, or instructions for design if you chose our design service.
- We will send you proofs generally within 1 business day of receiving your graphics or design instructions. You should DEFINITELY look your proofs over very carefully before you approve them because you are effectively saying “this is what I want”, and if there are any mistakes in the proofs, you have accepted responsibility for that mistake. As the customer, you is responsible to proofread and review proofs because you are most familiar with your correct phone number, address, spelling of your business name etc. If there is a mistake or an issue, let us know and we will correct it and send corrected proofs.
- Once you have approved your proofs, your job is sent to print. The turnaround varies from product to product.
- We ship to the Contiguous United States for free via UPS and most shipments take 1-2 business days after printing.

More Info on Postcards
If you don't see your questions answered here or in the product video, absolutely give us a call. Happy to help and able to accommodate almost any request.
What's the Standard Postcard Size?
This really depends on what you're looking for. Most 'tourist postcards' are usually around 4x6. The 4.25x5.5 size is also fairly common. Both these sizes are very cost effective as well. If you're looking for something 'oversized' then the 5.5x8.5 or 6x11 options are great, and for something in between a 5x7 works well. Our 3.5x8.5 and 4x9 sizes are often called rack cards and are great if you want a long card. These are approximately the size of a folded Tri-Fold brochure.
What does 16 pt mean?
This is an abbreviation for 16 point. A point is a measurement of thickness in printing. 16 pt is very thick; generally postcards are printed as thin as 9 or 10 pt and even some of the thicker ones are only 12 or 14 pt. You'll rarely see a postcard thicker than 16 pt, so you can be confident it's a nice thick stock. If you're familiar with cover stock weights, 16 point is a bit thicker than 120 lb cover stock.
What is UV Gloss?
UV Gloss is a high gloss coating applied after printing. For UV Gloss (high gloss) coatings you'll see we offer 'UV Gloss on Front Only' as well as just 'UV Gloss'. Products with UV Gloss have gloss on all printed sides by default, but if you'd like it on one side only of a 2 sided card, you can select the 'UV Gloss on Front Only' option. This option is available because UV Gloss cannot be written on with a pen, and leaving one side without the UV Gloss will allow you to write on one side. The other side still has a very slight gloss.
What is Matte Coating?
Matte Coating is often confused with Uncoated but they are actually quite different. The Matte Coating is a nicer product and has more of a Satin finish. It can be written on with a pen easily.
What is Bundling in Packs of 100?
If you are planning to distribute your Postcards, many distributors require they bundled in packs of 100. This option is only available for certain sizes. If you select this option the price goes up slightly and you'll notice we don't offer it on quantities less than 500. This is because a quantity of 100 would just be one bundle and 250 postcards don't go evenly into the packs. Some sizes do not have the bundling option offered so the only option may be 'No'.
Can You Distribute My Postcards?
Currently we do not offer distribution through Printing Peach. There are many flyer distribution companies available that will as well as USPS.
