Looking for amazing deals on full colour postcard printing? Then you've come to the right place!

Printed in amazing full colour, these postcards can be used as invitations, tickets, mailers... or even postcards! Just like the postcards you get at the seaside, ours are printed on sturdy 380 micron postcard board which is semi-glossy to the front (great for photos!) and matt to the reverse (ideal for writing on).

Select from our range of standard sizes or specify your own! Add an extra layer of protection and sophistication by adding gloss or matt lamination.

Postcards …

Stress Free Print, your online postcard printing superstore. The home of cheap postcard printing.

Want cheap postcard? You've come to the right place. Want cheap looking postcard, look elsewhere! Why pay more for your postcard? Use our unbelievably easy-to-use website to create your own customised postcard printing quotation, in an instant. Simply click on a size above to begin.

First, choose whether you'd like us to print your postcards in stunning full colour or in black and white (remember, it's been proven that full colour postcards achieve a much better response rate than their black and white equivalents so a cheap mono postcard may prove to be a false economy). Next, select from an extensive range of paper types and finishes, including our new range of recycled papers (they're so good you wont believe they're recycled but they are, honest!) Then decide the quantity you require and click on the relevant price. Finally, decide whether you're going to upload your own artwork or take advantage of the skill and experience of our designers via our fixed price, low cost artwork and design services.

If you're not quite ready to order we'll email your quote directly to your inbox. You can then amend your postcard printing quote at any time or use it to place your order with one mouse click. Our highly secure ordering system allows you to pay for your order using most popular debit and credit cards.



What happens next?

Well, if you've chosen to take advantage of our free printed proof offer we will post one out to you straight away via First Class Royal Mail post. If you've opted for an on-screen (PDF) proof, we'll email a proof to you for approval. Using our intuitive online proof feedback system, you're able to approve your proof instantly (or let us know if you've spotted any problems). Once we've got your approval to proceed we'll print and deliver your postcard printing order within 3 working days. Deliveries take place Monday to Friday, 8.30am to 5.30pm. A signature is required.



Supplying your own artwork?

We accept postcard printing artwork in most popular Mac and PC file formats but please refer to our Artwork Supply Guidelines before uploading your files to our site as your printed postcards will only be as good as the artwork you provide. Also, please double check your artwork for spelling errors, typos and other problems prior to supplying it to us as subsequent changes may attract additional charges.

Why not take advantage of the skills and experience of our in-house postcard design team? They can help you improve response rates and increase the effectiveness of your postcard printing campaign. Our fixed price, low cost Artwork and Design Services are a must for anyone wanting to squeeze the most from their marketing spend. Select our Artwork Service during the ordering process and receive a proof of your postcard direct to your inbox within 2 working days. We will then amend the content of your postcard in response to your feedback before a final printed proof is supplied to you for sign-off.



If you'd prefer to create your own postcard artwork there are a few things you should consider:

Colours: Numerous studies have shown that full colour postcards attract a far higher response rate than a black-and-white equivalent. That's why we print all our postcards in full colour. That said, if you want black-and-white simply select this during the ordering process. By the way, we specialise in full colour printing and therefore do not offer postcard printing in 'spot' colours. In other words, we can either print your postcard in full colour OR black-and-white. So if you don't want black-and-white then you may as well go to town... use as many colours as you wish and include full colour photographs or illustrations. There's no extra cost!

Resolution: Please be aware that a photograph or other 'bitmap' image requires a resolution of just 72dpi (dots per inch) for it to appear clear and sharp on a computer monitor. However, the same image requires a resolution of 300dpi for it to appear sharp when printed professionally. Therefore always check the resolution of your artwork. Just because your design looks great on screen doesn't mean it will reproduce correctly when printed. For further information about postcard printing and artwork resolution visit Tom's Blog.

Layout: Always keep text and other important elements of your design at least 3mm away from the edge of the postcard. Although we use highly sophisticated printing equipment, some movement is inherent within the printing process so if you place something too near to the edge of your postcard it could be trimmed off.

Bleed: A professional graphic designer will always add 'bleed' to their postcard artwork. Bleed is the method designers use to ensure that the postcards they get back from their printing company don't have ugly white borders around the edges. You see, despite all the recent advances in printing technology some movement - albeit only a fraction of a millimetre - still occurs during the postcard printing process. To compensate for this movement, designers add bleed to their artwork. They extend by around 4mm beyond the edge of their artwork, any design elements they would like to touch the edge of the postcard. So for instance, if you wanted to include a background colour which covered the entire area of your postcard, you would extend this colour approx 4mm beyond each edge of your postcard artwork. This means that any movement during printing will not result in ugly white borders around the edge of your postcard. For further information about bleed visit Tom's Blog.
