Silk Postcards Are Sophisticated And Modern.

Silk postcards are a great tool for business advertising. They are a great way to improve your business branding by giving the impression of luxury and elegance. They have a smooth silky texture when felt and this creates a matte and creamy surface look. Silk Laminating is a coating process where the postcard is coated with a lamination that mimics a silk fabric in feel. The silk laminating process improves the postcard by adding durability and a light water resistance.

This is definitely not your regular postcard! Our premium cards are printed on a 16pt paper and then coated with silk lamination, giving it a much more elegant and thicker feel. The silk option can also be used for business cards, greeting cards and much more. These cards are great for all types of advertising, sales & informational mailers. These postcards are also a great choice for wedding and engagement invites and mailers. So, if you want a postcard to create a lasting impress then silk laminated postcards is a great choice for you!

File Setup

In order to ensure your files are print-ready, we recommend that you upload them in PDF format. When you generate a print-ready PDF, your computer will use the settings in Adobe Acrobat Distiller or any other PDF generating programs you may use. Please make sure that these are set properly before generating your PDF file.

If you are uploading PDF files created in Photoshop, please be sure all layers are flattened.

We also accept .JPG (JPEG), and .TIF (TIFF) file types, however PDF is the preferred format.

Check your file to make sure it meets our file creation guidelines. This will help speed up the production of your project and give your printed piece the best results.

  1. Use the CMYK colorspace (Cyan, Magenta, Yellow, blacK). These are industry standard printing colors. CMYK colors are different than RGB (Red, Green, Blue), which are used to display colors on your screen.
  2. Use a minimum resolution of 300 dpi for image files.
  3. Specify trim area with crop marks. (Don’t place crop marks inside the work area.)
  4. Artwork should have 1/8″ (0.125″) bleed extending past the trim line. This is to prevent minor cutting variations from leaving unintended results at the trim edge.
  5. Safe Area is the 1/8″ (0.125″) area inside the trim line. Do not put critical information or images within the Safe Area. This is to prevent minor cutting variations from leaving unintended results at the trim edge.
  6. If you want printed borders, they must be placed a minimum of 1/8″ (0.125″) inside the trim line and include bleed. This is to prevent minor cutting variations from leaving unintended results at the trim edge.
