Affordable and fast postcard printing in Australia


If you're wanting to get the best affordable environmentally responsible promotional postcards in Australia, look no further. PrintTogether offer a number of excellent eco friendly postcard printing options that will help spread the word about your brand. Lets take a look in more detail.

Our postcard printing options:


Premium Uncoated Postcards
If you are going to do it, do it well on our premium quality 350gsm uncoated 100% post-consumer recycled white paper (EcoStar). This is our paper of choice for natural white uncoated postcards.
Printed on a state of the art HP Indigo for the very best results on a recycled uncoated paper. HP Indigo inks are used for our premium quality uncoated business cards to create an offset quality finish on small quantities without the offset price tag. Our premium uncoated postcards are ideal for businesses that care about quality and want a natural look and feel.

Kraft Postcards
Our raw brown kraft postcards have a natural, raw and organic feel. Made from unbleached 100% post-consumer recycled paper. Due to the colour of the stock we recommend printing dark colours for best results. Black only printing on kraft postcards is the most common with our clients, for a simple, minimal and natural looking card. Kraft postcards are ideal for natural, organic or environmentally focused businesses. Important note - some kraft papers such as Buffalo Board offered by other printers are actually made from very low levels or recycled paper pulp. At PrintTogether we only use 100% post-consumer recycled kraft paper for our kraft postcards.

Extra Thick Postcards
Conventional sheet fed printing presses can only print up to around 400gsm paper. Our unique processes allow up to create extra thick postcards that are 600gsm. The process is a little more complex and therefore more expensive than standard weight postcards. Thick postcard are ideal for small run special events.  

Letterpress Postcards
Letterpress postcards are not fast to produce, they are not cheap to make due to the plates required and the time involved in setting up the press. You can not print CMYK (full colour) as per other forms of printing. You have to print 1 pantone colour at a time. Letterpress specialist papers (often made from cotton) are also a lot thicker and softer than digital or offset papers and substantially more expensive. For all of the above reasons letterpress postcards are not for businesses on a tight budget! Letterpress postcards are for people that appreciate the letterpress process and are happy to pay top dollar for a unique, premium quality tactile and textured postcard.

Design tip for letterpress postcards - Every colour and every side of a letterpress print is effectively a new print run. Therefore a double sided letterpress postcard is twice the price of a single side letterpress postcard. Likewise a two colour letterpress postcard is twice the price of a one colour letterpress postcard. If you really love the look of letterpress postcards but don't want to spend thousands of dollars, black only or one Pantone colour, one side is the most affordable way to design your artwork.

Postcard sizes

Our online postcards above are all available in standard sizes: A6 (105mm x 148mm), A5 (210mm x 148mm) and DL (99mm x 210mm). This is to maximise the use of the entire sheet of paper and minimise wise. Custom sizes are available on request, prices are dependent on how much space on press is required.

What are printed postcard used for?

The majority of postcards we print are used to promote a product or service. Promotional postcards over the years have replaced brochures as the most popular method of mass printed marketing. Postcards can also be used as thank you cards to include with products, or as invitations. Postcards are easy and affordable to design and print.

Letterpress postcards are printed once a week.

Special finishes for postcards

All postcards we produce are guillotine trimmed with straight edges. If you would like to take this further we also offer:

5mm round corners

Edge painting

Postcard design

Postcards are a versatile and a fantastic way to get in touch with your target audience. They are most often used as a call to action so should be bold, with your objective clear and intriguing.

When you're sorting your design, keep in mind what you want to achieve with your postcards. Do you want to advertise a new product, get connected with potential customers, follow up with existing clientele, or get people excited about an upcoming event? Think about who you want to pay attention and direct your postcard to them. This is a teaser that will ideally get people to look at your website, follow you on social media or get in touch.

How you or your company comes across will depend on your postcard design. Visual impact is created with colour, text and font types, along with composition and format. Use the space wisely and keep your design consistent and personalised. Simplicity goes a long way.
