Border

If your frontside image is not proportional to our postcard dimensions, we will have to crop your photo or add a border.

If you decide to add a border to the color side(s) of your postcard, you will need to specify 3 things in your instructions or mockup:
  1. Color — White, black, or another CMYK color
  2. Thickness — Must be at least 1/4 inch thick (see below)
  3. Number of sides — 1, 2, 3, or all 4 sides
    (Which side(s)? Top? Bottom? Left? Right?)
Be sure to accurately describe your border to us in your mockup or instructions.

I've been working with Modern Postcard for nearly ten years now. They are the perfect company to go to for my quarterly promotions. I recently had the pleasure of working with one particular rep, who not only helped solve an old issue regarding an order discount, but was strategic in getting my order through the system with great communication and responsiveness. It is this very sort of customer service which will keep me coming back! Thanks!
