When it comes to designing postcards, it makes sense to operate under the mantra that less is more.

Being able to design your own postcard has a great amount of novelty value associated with it. For some people, the temptation to overload the card with as much visual imagery as possible is overpowering. On top of that, some people succumb to the urge of placing a large block of text over this imagery.

Trust us, this is not the best way forward. In instances such as these, the recipient of the postcard struggles to focus on the focal point of the image, and the impact of sending a postcard in the first place is lost.

Postcard design should be simple yet effective

Whether you are designing your personalised postcard for a friend, or you are representing a business that is sending a greeting out to clients, just keep it simple.

Choose a simple but effective image and make it the focal point of the card. Then choose your greeting or message and keep it short and sweet. If you are struggling for creativity from within, you’re sure to find something you like from the many online postcard templates.

The most important aspect of a postcard is that you are sending one in the first place. It proves that you’re a thoughtful person. Don’t negate the impact of that by overloading a relatively small space with too much text. Also, don’t use any more than two font types. Any more and the postcard loses impact.

A printed postcard is gratefully received 

Despite all of the advances that have been made in technology and the levels of sophistication we have reached in communication, nothing beats the humble postcard.

If you are trying to impress someone, or you just want them to know that you’re thinking of them, nothing is more effective than sending a postcard. It’s a really charming thing to do, and won’t set you back much either.

So what are you waiting for? Don’t let this wonderful tradition die out. Put down your first order from our postcard online shop.
