► Postcards are a simple and economical way to advertise your business or an event.

XPress Copy can copy both sides in full color, both sides in b&w, or mix with color on one side, b&w on the reverse.  Or ... we can copy one side only, leaving the other blank.  It’s your choice!

► Mailed first-class, postcards require less postage than letters, so are particularly economical when they are to be mailed.  XPress Copy will advise you on the size requirements as set by the USPS.

► Let XPress Copy cut your postcards to whatever size you wish (but you should take care to avoid the need for extra postage by staying within the limits set by the USPS).

►  Postcards can be copied on your choice of heavy-weight papers in many different colors and with several different finishes (see Paper Stocks).

The Copy Advisor


  • Designing your postcard size at 4.25"x 5.5" meets USPS regulations and allows XPress to print cards four per sheet, the best bang for your buck!
  • USPS postcard mailing regulations specify maximum size: 4.25" x 6" and minimum size: 3.5" x 5".  XPress can advise you on stock thickness.
  • USPS postcard mailing regulations require a margin of at least 5/8" at the bottom of the card reserved for barcode and postal marking areas.
