Raise the Bar With Business Postcards

What can postcards do for you?

Business postcards are one of the most affordable and versatile tools you can use to grow your brand, gain more customers, and stay ahead of the competition.

At 48HourPrint.com, we like to have fun but when it comes to printing—we mean business. Our wide variety of materials, sizes, and finishes let you customize the perfect business postcard for every type of occasion.

Use them as branding collateral such as product promotions, event invites, and packaging inserts. Postcards offer endless opportunities to promote your brand.

Start by choosing from our durable cardstock.

  • 14 pt. cardstock is our most popular option for postcards. It’s flexible but thick enough for double-sided printing. You can choose gloss coating for a reflective finish and matte coating for a subdued, elegant effect. For more shine and saturation, go for high-gloss UV
  • 16 pt. cardstock is highly recommended by Gary D. Monster because of its added thickness and premium feel. You can also add gloss, matte, or high-gloss UV coating for more protection.
  • 17 pt. cardstock is our uncoated stock option for postcards. Because it’s more ink-absorbent, this material goes well with minimalist designs for its muted effect


Make your custom postcards stand out from the rest of the mail by adding special touches.

Metallic Postcards

Metallic Postcards can make potential customers stop and look at what you have to say! Make any color pop—even gradient shades.

Spot UV Postcards

Spot UV Postcards bring your design to another level. Highlight your logo or message by adding a glossy coating over important aspects of your design.

Raised Spot UV Postcards

Raised Spot UV Postcards adds a tactile experience to your design. Similar to spot UV printing, it uses shiny coating to emphasize design details but with a thicker, embossed effect

Silk Postcards

Silk Postcards look and feel like silk fabric. This coating has a subtle texture and works well for brands with classic branding.

Velvet Postcards

Velvet Postcards mimic the texture of plush velvet. They feel as soft as peach fuzz. If you’re going for a luxurious look, velvet coating is the way to go.
