Q&A

How long will my postcards take to get to me?

Your “printing turnaround” is the number of days needed to produce your order. This does not include holidays and weekends. Add your printing turnaround time to your preferred delivery date and this is the date you can expect your postcards to arrive.

What is spot UV?

Spot UV is a high gloss layer that is added to the entire postcard or selected area, depending on your design. This clear gloss UV coating creates highlights, contrast and dimension to your artwork.

What does CMYK mean?

This stands for Cyan, Magenta, Yellow and Black (K) which are the key colors used in the printing world. When you setup your postcard artwork for printing, make sure  it is in CMYK. Converting from RGB can cause conversion issues and distortions,so your colors might not show correctly.
