What are postcards?
What is aqueous coating?
Aqueous coating is a water-based coating that provides a sheen or matte finish to your postcard. The coating is applied to the paper and dries quickly to create a durable, water-resistant finish that helps protect the printed content.
What is the difference between aqueous coating and UV coating?
The major difference between an aqueous coating and a UV coating is the time involved in setting. Aqueous coating is a water-based clear coating that dries quickly, while UV coating is cured using UV light. The former provides a high gloss applied to any surface, while the latter creates a subtle sheen or gives it an satin type of finish.
What is satin aqueous coating?
Satin aqueous coating is the class of aqueous coating providing a smooth, satin-finish appearance. It is much less glossy than traditional UV coating and still provides a professional finish and protection for printed content.
Are all postcards printed using full color?
Most postcards are printed in full color, which means that all colors are printed using a four-color process (CMYK). However, some postcards may be printed using fewer colors or using spot colors.
Can I upload my own design for postcards?
Sure, you can make your own postcards design. Make sure what you are designing to print meets the printing requirements for whatever printing process you decide on. The design must be in a PDF file and should have the proper bleeds and margins set up within it.
What is the difference between coated and uncoated paper?
Coated paper contains a layer of coating applied to the surface of the paper. The smoothness, gloss or matte finish has an effect on enhancing colors and detail in the printed content. Uncoated paper does not have a coating and thus the ink is absorbed into the paper and result in a more muted and natural finish compared to coated Paper.
How long does it take to print and ship my order?
The turnaround time for printing and shipping your order depends on a number of factors, including the level of detail in the design, the quantity of postcards ordered, and the shipping method selected. The estimated delivery date is only an estimate and is dependent on several factors, including proof approval, resources and blogs, the day of placed order, and any other factors that may affect the final delivery date.
