  • Direct Mail piece sizing and specs...

    I'm working on a direct mail piece, and they have given me freedom on sizing. Its going to be a 1 fold piece taped shut, with one face having the mailing information, and the rest of the faces will be graphics. I can only find templates on usps.com for Business Reply Cards, and this won't be a Business Reply piece. I was thinking there were more sizing options available for things like this...Anyone have any info? Thanks

    Is it being sent out bulk pre-sorted mail or first class?

        depending on how you are going to mail it, you have a lot of freedom for the size. We do regular postcards that range from 6"x4" to 8.5"11" you pay the same for bulkrate.

        Pretty much you can go any size you want in between 6"x4" and 8.5"x11" without incurring any extra fees besides for the weight.

        Postcard Templates / regulations

        Hope that helps. I work at a direct mail place, if you have any questions, let me know, I can go ask someone in production.

          Things have changed, its no longer a folded piece, I'm goign to make it 6" x 8.5"...I'm going to follow the guide on the link that CamarotaDesign posted. I really wanted a black background on both sides, but I'll have to leave white in the areas it calls for Thanks everyone!

          oh, one more thing, it needs a perforation on one end, like 2" or so from the left edge..any problems with this?

            Should be fine with perf. Just as long as it's done properly and isn't falling off! What is the perf for?

            I did a mail out - change of company name. We had a perf at the end so that when you ripped it off you got their new business card.

              it will be a little thing to tear off that they fill out and bring to a tradeshow to win a prize...Thanks man!

                I gave up on both regular television and cable television years ago. I have no interest in spectator sports, so that's not an issue for me. It likely won't fit with what you're after, but for me a fiber...

                Interpolating an image is still interpolating an image. You can't increase the resolution. You can make PHotoshop guess what the missing pixels are, but it's all still a guess....

                As sort of a side project, I design typefaces and compile them into commercial fonts. It's a whole lot of work that, when done right, takes months and requires designing, drawing, kerning and hinting...
