Silk Laminated Postcards Printing

Silk laminated postcards are printed on full CMYK color on either single or double sided 16PT card. After printing, the postcards have a protective silk lamination applied to both sides of the postcard, giving them a tear and water resistant final result.

What is CMYK?

In offset printing, the standard color mode used in CMYK. CMYK, or Cyan, Magenta, Yellow & Black represent the four process colours in this mode. When you are creating your files, be sure to check the color mode as programs like Photoshop by default use RBG color, not CMYK. CMYK may look more dull on a computer screen than RGB; more noticeable in large solid color areas.

Accepted File Formats

We require industry standard formats for all uploaded files. We keep quality in mind when we print every job. We accept the following file formats: TIF – JPG – PDF – EPS – PSD. We accept CorelDraw, Pagemaker & Quark or similar files by converting them to industry standard graphic formats like JPG, TIF or PDF.

Rich Black vs 100% Black

Large black areas or fonts bigger than 36 points should use Rich Black which stops areas appearing gray. Rich Black is created with 30% Cyan, 30% Magenta, 30% Yellow, 100% Black. This setup will keep black areas looking rich and bold. For best results with regular body text, do not use Rich Black.

What Paper to Choose?

Paper should be addressed first in your design work. With postcards, the best option is to choose a thicker cardstock instead of a thinner text weight. The difference between these 2 types of paper is thickness. Our text weight is based on pounds and our card stock is weighted by points. Want to feel the difference? Order a Free Sample Kit today.

What is Font Outlining?

We might not have the same fonts on our systems as your computer, so when saving your files in a vector based program (Illustrator, InDesign, Quark, CorelDraw) please outline your fonts. This will convert them to a vector image, will not effect the clarity and will allow us to see the same text as you see on your screen.

Coating Types

We have many coating options at Printing New York. Matte, UV, silk and spot UV. Choose the coating based on your application. For example, if you want to write on your cards with a pen, do not choose UV coating as a pen won’t write on it. In this case a matte or uncoated stock coating would suit. Choose UV coating for flyers or banners and our rich silk gives a touch of elegance; 16pt stock a more durable feeling.

    I purchased photo postcards, which arrived one day early and were stunning! The color was beautiful, and the thickness was wonderful, so I ordered three more! I’m very pleased! The postage, on the other hand, was more expensive than the cards. Thank you very much!

    These cards were produced to memorialize a year-long mastermind group that I was a part of. The quality, as well as the turnaround time and customer service, were all excellent. For the rest of my life, I’ll be a ‘Printing New York’:)

    The postcards arrived in excellent condition, and we are extremely pleased with their appearance. Beautiful and professional, with quick shipping and a simple online creation process. We were pleased to learn that we could have cards like this printed at a reasonable price as a small family-owned business! Thank you, Printing New York!

    Printing New York sent us our first order, which included 500 4×6 postcards printed on 14pt gloss cardstock. Using the online editor to create our postcard was simple. The template’s “trim line” and “safe zone” were really useful in ensuring that our material was placed exactly where we wanted it. All of my questions were swiftly and properly answered by the people on the live chat. We were a little nervous about the final product outcomes because it was our first time ordering from Printing New York; nonetheless, we were pleasantly delighted and impressed with what we received. Each postcard arrived in perfect condition, with no bleedovers, runs, ink stains, or other flaws. We elected to address our postcards by hand, and found that a fine tip sharpie was much easier to use than a ball point pen. The ink on the ballpoint pen smeared/smudged a little (when written by a left-hander). The sharpie’s fine tip dried almost instantly and did not smear or smudge. The 14pt gloss cardstock withstood postal delivery admirably. We’ll use Printing New York again without a doubt!

    My Save the Dates were printed on normal 4×6 postcards with a 16 pt thickness (matte) and our custom design turned out beautifully. The color and printing are excellent, and the final product is exactly to the digital draft. I’m very pleased with my purchase and would strongly recommend it!
