16pt Postcards – Smooth Matte or High Gloss
16pt postcards come in various sizes and with full color CMYK process inks. Most postcards are 12pt or even 14pt, but our 16pt postcards are thick and durable with a heavy weight finish. Our 16pt postcards come either in smooth matte finish, high gloss finish or gloss front matte back. People request a matte finish for writing purposes and high gloss for photos and graphics. We have 11 sizes to select from and all have the option of rounded corners. Please check with your local post office for size requirements. Not all post offices use the same guidelines and can vary from state to state. They may be required to, but they just don’t, so please check if you’re not sure.
Download file preparation templates for creating your files with our exact specifications. You will be able to choose between Illustrator and Photoshop templates. If you have questions about the templates, you can contact our art department through our contact form.
Current print schedules can be acquired by request through our contact form. We always suggest that you request samples prior to making your purchase or start with a small quantity to test your design work on. Our 16pt card stock can slightly vary in color from run to run. Please note that turnaround times do not include shipping. Always add in a cushion of a couple extra days in case of any delays. Weekends do not count as part of turnaround times.
