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 am very pleased with my most recent job from Modern Postcard. Even tho' I sent what were probably confusing instructions and substandard images, the layout, design, color, and printing results were excellent. Job was done on time and shipped to me immediately, so I was able to meet a mailing deadline. I will continue to use Modern Postcard's services, because nobody else I have tried comes even close to their quality and reliability. I have already received lots of compliments on the most recent card. I highly recommend Modern Postcard, especially for people in the arts, where quality of image counts for a lot.
