Tips on Creating Effective 4.25 x 6 Direct Mail Postcards

4.25x6 postcards are the second smallest standard direct mail postcard size offered by printers that follow the USPS postcard size requirements. With only being 0.25” taller than the 4x6 postcard, these small marketing products offer very little room to promote your message. Because of this, when designing your 4.25x6 postcard, you need to create a design that stands out and immediately grabs the attention of your audience.

To create a successful 4.25x6 postcard design, you need to first figure out how you can design your postcard to appeal to your specific audience. What demographic does your audience fall under? What are their interests or needs? When you know the answer to these questions you can then choose imagery, language, graphics, a typeface, and a color palette that attracts your audience while also aligning with your brand.

Keep in mind, that because 4.25 x6 postcards offer limited design space, you need to keep messaging short and sweet and keep imagery to a minimum. To help with your postcard design, and to ensure you leave enough space for the mailing information panel, it’s a good idea to take advantage of a 4.25x6 postcard template—which we have available in several formats for you to download for free above.

4.25 x 6 postcard design templates offer guides for you to set up your design to print successfully and they include parameters for the mailing information panel so that you can create a design that follows the USPS design regulation.
