After seeing many postcard templates, I am sure that you are far from certain as to what really is the best.
With literally hundreds of special templates out there to choose from, it is hard for designers (expert and beginners both), to choose that right template for postcard printing that gives them the right design functionality that they are looking for. Luckily, for you, you will not have to worry about this too much. This is because I am going to teach you here the five signs that will determine if what you have is the right kind of postcard template for you. So read on and remember these items.
1.The appropriate cost – The first sign that you will want to see in a template is the appropriate cost. Typically, the best and right template for most is the free postcard templates from postcard printers. However, for newcomers, those free ones of course might not be enough, and some paid templates with more guidelines might be more appropriate. As long as you are willing to pay the costs and have the resources to back up that willingness, then that is a good sign of the best template for you.
2.The best optimized size – The next sign of the best template for you is the best optimized size. You might be not that aware of it, but such come in different sizes. The right template for you will be the one with the size that is best for your deployment purposes. Therefore, if you are just mailing for example, the standard size recommended by the post office is best. However if you are planning to deploy in racks and other types of distribution strategies, then you might want to get smaller more mobile ones or larger high impact ones. It all depends on which is most convenient for our deployment.
3.Proper sample layout – The right template for you should also have the proper sample layout. The best color postcard layouts typically have a sample layout with placeholder elements for you to see really how it looks. So pay close attention to the sample layout of the templates that you are eyeing and see if the look is indeed, what you want. Take into account the text and images that you want included in your main color design. The more they match and fit the better template it is for you.
4.The right file format – Of course, do not forget that you will need a template that is already in the right file format for editing and for printing. This helps you design and print your color postcards seamlessly, without any problems with file format adjustments and distortions. So always, check the file format. Use only the ones applicable to you.
5.Easy to load and use – Finally of course, always check and open those templates if they are easy to load and use for your purposes. Sometimes there are use restrictions, watermarks and even incompatibilities in your software that can make those templates literally unusable for some people. Therefore, read the fine print, test out loading and make sure that they are easy to load and use.
Now you know the right signs. Just watch out for all of these and you should see what the best is and what the worst templates are.
