Tips on Creating Effective 5.5 x 8.5 Direct Mail Postcards

5.5x8.5 postcards are relatively large postcards and offer plenty of design space to promote your product or services effectively. They’re taller than the average mail pieces, providing you with the perfect canvas to stand out in your recipients’ mailboxes.

Because 5.5x8.5 postcards offer extra space compared to smaller postcards like 4x6 or 5x7 postcards, they give you the opportunity to create a visual heavy, eye-catching design.

When designing your 5.5x8.5 postcard, there are a few things to keep in mind. First, you need to understand who your audience is so that you can create a design that appeals to them. You then need to outline everything you need to include, come up with an enticing call to action, choose a color palette that aligns with your brand, and then take advantage of a 5.5x8.5 postcard template.

Above we have provided several versions of free 5.5x8.5 postcard design templates that you can download. These templates offer guidelines for you to successfully design a 5.5x8.5 postcard that is perfectly prepared for printing and aligns with the USPS direct mail regulations.
