Note Card Printing

The evolution of email, instant messaging and social media make "snail mail" communications like letters and note cards seem outdated and inefficient. However, with the effort it takes, the reception and impact it has far surpasses anything achieved by digital channels. Who doesn't like getting a card in the mail?

While emails are glanced at and quickly deleted, note cards communicate at a higher level and really engage your customers and recipients.

Note cards fit nicely into a broader, personalized marketing and communications strategy. Someone who takes the time to sit down and write out a personal "thank you" or other message on a note card is communicating to their recipient that they genuinely care. Anyone can pound out an email in a matter of seconds, without much thought or effort. But it is exactly that thought and effort put in to a personalized note card that communicates how much sincere interest you have. Position your company as a "high-touch" business that offers greater value.

Note cards work wonders as sales follow-ups or to thank prospects for finally signing on the dotted line. Hand written invitations to corporate events or store sales can boost attendance. You could use note cards as announcements for personal news like new children, new couples or business purposes like new locations.

  • Thank You Notes
  • Company Holiday Cards
  • Event Invitations

Note Card Sizes Specifications

Our standard note card size is a 4.25" x 5.5" folded card. The graphic design used can be either horizontal or vertical. This is slightly smaller than our standard greeting card which measures 5" x 7" (folded) and therefore reduces the note card cost. And unlike a greeting card, notecards generally have a blank inside - allowing you to personalize it with whatever message you need. A best-practice for the outside of a business notecard is to match your company's letterhead and business card look & feel. This should be generic enough to allow you to use your notecards for a variety of reasons or occasions.
As mentioned above, notecards are typically printed 4/0 (4-color outside over blank inside), but can easily be printed 4/1 or 4/4 if you would like to print any standard messages or logos, etc. on the inside of your cards.

Best Note Card Paper Stock

Since the purpose of a notecard is to write a personal message, make sure you print your note cards on writing-friendly paper. We recommend 100# Uncoated Cover paper. This bright, white smooth #1 grade cover stock is 14pt in thickness and matches the 70# text-weight stock that we use for letterhead and envelopes.
Other paper options that work well for note card printing include our 120# Gloss Cover and our 120# Dull/Matte Cover. Our dull/matte cover is a thick 14pt cover stock with a smooth, non-shiny coating that works well for photogrphic images. It is well suited for detailed, crisp printing without sacrificing the ability to easily write on the paper.

Design Tips for Custom Note Cards

Coming up with a design for your custom notecards should be fairly easy. Start with your business card and/or stationery look & feel and modify it to the notecard format, or get creative and use attractive images and graphic designs to catch peoples attention. Monogrammed and photographic note cards are also popular. You can use either a vertical or horizontal layout for different design styles and uses.

Note Card Templates

We have some handy design and layout templates for that you can download with Illustrator, EPS and PDF file formats, and include the bleed and cut lines for your reference. Just be sure you design your notecard all the way out to the edges of the template file, but any critical note card design element needs to fall inside the cut lines (indicated on the templates).

Customer Note Card Reviews

"Hi there! ~Just wanted to let you know the postcards and note cards turned out beautifully! Normally I am hesitant to go over the internet for printing, for it sometimes can be a wild card. With PFL, I experienced excellent communication, fantastic customer service, timeliness, and quality! Thank you! I look forward to using you again in the future:)"

" had the most competitive rates and the customer service was superb. Most importantly, the notecards were top-of-the-line quality with amazing, vibrant colors. Thank you!"
Megan M. Christopher, Pickersgill Retirement Community
"Do you accept marriage proposals? Honestly, I've been a freelance graphic designer and writer based out of France, New York, and Athens, Georgia for the last ten years ... I've never worked with a printer I didn't want to kill. This process has been so pleasant, so finely executed, and so idiot-proof for both myself and my client, that I'm soon to MapQuest a horse trail between here and Montana so I can deliver appreciative hugs in person (it's a southern thing). You guys rock ... kudos to your web designer, your project managers, and to all those who keep your presses compatible with the creative decisions of your customers."
