We recommend treating the spot UV your cards as a completely separate element for maximum effect. Need help with design? More on that below.

HD Printing

As standard, all of our postcard range is full colour, litho printed, using HD printing technology. HD printing gives the finest print quality possible with more dots than conventional screening. More dots mean a sharper image.

  • HD printing produces smooth, punchy colours. The ultra tight dot produces images that look almost photographic.
  • No more nasty digital dots, HD printing eliminates the ‘grain’ you often get when printing digitally (or use conventional litho for that matter).
  • Solid areas of colour are consistent and don’t suffer banding.
  • HD printing offers more flexibility in design.

Our Design Service

If preparing artwork for print is not your forte, or you want to add some creative flare to your postcards, ask us about our design service.

Why do I need my postcards professionally designed?

Whilst a perfectly printed postcard can set you leaps and bounds above your competitors, poorly prepared artwork can tarnish the ‘wow factor’ when it’s received. Professional design is often something that gets undervalued, a small investment when it comes to design can transform your postcard and increase your return on investment. Make your postcard the best it can be by working closely with one of our experienced designers to prepare your artwork.

Cutting edge design + a perfect product = the full package!
