What is a Postcard?
A postcard is a rectangular piece of thick paper or cardstock that is sent via mail without an envelope. These typically have a beautiful photo or design on one side and lines for mailing address and a quick note on the other, but one-sided postcards can also be created.
Postcards have many uses, whether for personal or professional communication, and can be a great way to keep in touch with customers and friends. Take it old school and dig out that old address book to start sending your own postcards.

Questions About the Postcard Maker
How much does it cost to create a postcard with the postcard maker?
Creating a postcard is 100% free. Downloading the card as an image file is also free. If you would like to download the card design as a PDF with bleed marks to send to a printer, you will need to upgrade to a Standard Plan.
Are the postcard templates completely customizable?
Yes! All templates are infinitely customizable. Plus, you can upload your own images and graphics if you don’t want to use the ones provided in the left-hand panel of the editor.
Can I use my Brand Kit with the postcard maker?
Absolutely. When you have a Brand Kit set up in Visme, it is available for all sorts of projects, not only postcards. To have a Brand Kit, you need to upgrade to a Standard Plan.
Can I print the postcards myself?
Of course! Just print them off onto cardstock or other thick card paper so they won’t get crumpled in the mail. If you play to mass print these postcards to send to your customers, it may be easier to send them to a printer.
What is the standard size for postcards?
Postcards come in many different shapes and sizes. Visme’s postcard templates are all 5.5in x 4.25in, and you can find card paper of this size to perfectly print them out. If you prefer a different size, you’re able to customize your canvas size inside the postcard maker.
Can I use my postcard as a digital postcard instead of printing it?
You sure can. You can create a shareable link right inside Visme, or download the postcard as an image file and paste it into an email to send virtually.
