How to make a postcard

Even if you don’t have a lot of design experience, you’ll still be able to create an impressive postcard. Use the postcard maker from Lucidpress and see just how easy it is to make an eye-catching design.

Step 1: Look for inspiration

You know you want to create a postcard, but you might not know what kind of design you want. That means it’s time to search for inspiration. One of the easiest ways to do this is to take a quick look through the Lucidpress gallery to see the different designs that you can build from. See if any of them speak to you and the reason you’re making a postcard in the first place. This is especially helpful if you don’t consider yourself a designer. Give it a try and see what sparks your imagination.

Step 2: Pick a template

Think about the purpose behind the postcard you’re creating and who will be receiving it. You should also consider what size you’d like the postcard to be. From there, you’ll be able to make an informed decision regarding the right template to choose for your postcard. Lucidpress offers a variety of great templates that serve as an excellent foundation to start with before you customize your postcard.

Step 3: Pick the image

Postcards are all about the image. Some might even say that the picture on a postcard is the star. A great postcard needs an eye-catching image, something that will grab someone’s attention. Run with the visually compelling images already included in the template, or upload one of your own.

Step 4: Pick the font and colors

Your choice of font and colors should always complement the design of your postcard. They need to work as a cohesive unit, one that amplifies the theme of the postcard and really sets the mood for the reader. Many postcards seek to transport the reader to another location, so make sure you use the right colors and font to help them get there.

Step 5: Keep it simple

With so many options to choose from, you might be tempted to fill your postcard with all sorts of design elements. Try to avoid this, since a postcard with a simple design is usually more effective. A postcard with numerous elements can quickly become cluttered, resulting in a confusing design. Think about the postcards you’ve received before. Most simply feature a vibrant photo, a simple headline, and maybe a line or two of text. In most cases, that’s all you need.
