Do you still want to keep in touch with your loved ones even if you’re on a vacation? Let them know that you are thinking of them by sending them a postcard. Through postcards, you can share with your loved ones your whereabouts as well as the details of your next destination.

How to Create a Postcard

Creating a postcard of your own can be both fun and challenging but you will surely enjoy the best of both worlds by following these guidelines below:

1. Incorporate relevant and high-quality photos.

Adding photos randomly is not just enough but you should ensure that these photos possess high quality and relevance. Postcards are highly visual and it relies most especially on this aspect. Plus, people are easily attracted to visuals and would tend to focus on the graphics more than on the text itself. No matter how well-composed your message is, it will be difficult to make your receiver appreciate your postcard if it contains poor quality and irrelevant images.

2. Keep it simple.

If it is still your first time creating or designing psd postcard, then you should consider keeping things simple rather than trying to pack it with too much graphics or design elements. If you think that more means better, you have to keep it in your heart and mind the phrase from Robert Browning’s poem “Andrea del Sarto” that goes “less is more.” When it comes to designing any creative material, less indeed will always be more.

3. Avoid visual clutter.

To make this possible, make sure you provide enough negative or white space in your design. Adding so many design elements on your postcard design will only make it look too overwhelming to the eyes of the receiver. But with the negative space on your design, this gives your entire postcard design a room to breathe and would allow your receivers to just focus on the important elements on your design.

4. Proofread and edit.

Before having postcard design ready for printing, ensure that you will still have to carefully check and proofread it first. As soon as you will find out that there are mistakes, edit it immediately so that the spelling and grammatical errors will not retain in your final and printed output.
