Postcard Printers

Everyone likes to get a postcard! Make yours interesting, even funny, and people will remember your company name. Postcards are a cost effective way to communicate a little something about what you do or even just get across your company name and business idea.

Offset litho vs digital postcard print

We can undertake your postcard print either on our offset litho printing presses or by using the newer digital printing process. What’s the difference? Well in brief…

  • Cost
    digital printing involves only a little setting up and then a cost for each copy; offset litho printing involves more setting up and a printing plate to create the first copy, but then the cost per copy is much cheaper. As a general guide, up to 500 items is cheaper printed digitally and over 500 is cheaper using offset litho. At Fulprint, our quotation software automatically checks the best cost options for you.
  • Speed
    We generally turn around digital jobs in 2-3 working days and offset litho jobs in 5 working days. Although the digital print machine prints more slowly, the printed item is dry; whereas in offset litho printing real, wet ink is used and drying time is needed before cutting and boxing.
  • Colour
    Digital printing always uses the full colour process to create different colours; offset litho printing can also do this, but in addition allows for dedicated ‘spot’ colours, which are very accurate and can include metallic silver and gold or fluorescent inks.

Print proof

Once we’ve established what you need, it’s full steam ahead in the artwork department to get you a proof by PDF to make sure we’ve understood your instructions and / or opened up your own artwork satisfactorily. If you prefer a hard copy proof by post we’ll happily do that (digital proofing process).

Traditional postcards

We offer a standard A6 postcard back in black which comprises the usual stamp position indicator vertical rule to separate the message from the address and four address line guides. This covers the traditional postcard print which we would usually put on a postcard board which is coated (slightly glossy) on the front and plain uncoated “writable” on the reverse. This type of postcard carries VAT at the standard rate.

Double-sided postcards

If you are using the cards more like a general leaflet and there is printing on both sides of the item, a card material that is coated on both sides will be more appropriate – and the item is then zero rated for VAT.  Whatever you decide, ask the experts at Fulprint for your next postcard print.
