Who is best printer for oversized postcard?

8 replies
I have found tons of printers for regular sized postcards but no luck with finding printer for oversized postcard... I have printed and mailed magazines since 1993 and I want to test the results of oversized postcard vs. high quality magazine response. Who is best printer for the 9x12 postcard?

    Have you ever received a 9x12 postcard? If so, were you more apt to respond to that postcard vice 5x8 postcard? I know that vista print does oversized post cards, just don't know if they are 9x12 though.

    If you are trying to print small postcards then it is better to use small kind of printers but you can not accommodate oversized and customized postcards in such normal printers.

      gotprint is indeed the cheapest you'll find for business cards, brochures, postcards and other print stuff, unless you know someone with a wholesale trade account.

      One thing to be mindful with about gotprint, they have pretty long turnarounds and jumping anything up to a faster print turnaround or faster shipping will increase the cost significantly.

      For example, I print a lot of 9x12 postcards for people and here's what gotprints prices are:

      $975 will take 7 business days (9 days total) to print.
      $1228 if you want it printed in 3 days (rush).

      then add shipping which is $210 for ups ground which can take up to 5 business days depending on where you live, and then $475 if you want it shipped in 3 days.


      Most people do not want to wait half a month to get their products delivered, but they're lured in at the cost of only $1185 for the cheapest options.

      Most want the stuff delivered in a week at most, which would cost $1703 to do through them!

      Hey Bob thanks... Can't PM yet..



      But what I am actually looking for is a graphic designer to make a few mockups of a card branded with my logo, contact info and a few other things i have in mind. I'll then take it to the printer and get them printed up.


      Thanks!
