When you sign up to Postable we give you a personalized link. Copy and paste your link into an email, Facebook, Twitter, wherever, and send it to anybody whose contact information you want. They click the link, enter their info into a short form and you have yourself an address book.

Sure. If you’re getting married and your fiance or parents have a lot of the email addresses, you can give them your link & have them send it out for you. No matter who sends out your link, the information will always end up in your address book.
Login and go to your Address Book > Import > Upload your spreadsheet. We have a really great import system. We should be able to get all of your contacts into your address book quickly and easily.
Make sure your spreadsheet only has one worksheet and that each column has a header. If you're still having a problem, at the end of the process we offer you an option to let us do the import for you. Click that, sit back and relax and we'll email you when they're in.
You can sort your address book by first or last name. Just go to Account > Address Book Settings.
No. You don't ever have to write a single card if you don't want to. You can just use us for our beautiful free address book. We don't mind. Honest.
Sure. Go to Address Book > Export.
Yup! Just choose the card that tickles your fancy, customize, write your message, and hit send. We print, stuff, and mail the card for you directly to your recipient.
Sure. Customize your own or choose one of ours and we'll ship you a box tomorrow.
We’re proud to be working with a group of amazingly talented independent card designers. Click on a card and then click the designer’s name to learn more about each designer and see all their cards that are on Postable.
The more cards you buy the less they cost. So the price can range from $1.00 to $3.99 each depending on how many you buy. Here’s the breakdown…
|Number of cards||Cards with Envelopes||Postcards|
|1-19 cards||$3.99 each||$2.49 each|
|20 cards or more||$2.99 each||$1.99 each|
|200+||Volume pricing as low as $1.00!|
Purchasing site credit will let you unlock even better prices for your large order. You can see the volume pricing rates here.
If we send the cards to you, they're the same price as above plus shipping.
Our box shipping rates vary with the size / weight of your order and shipping destination. For small orders and international orders we use the USPS. For all other orders we use UPS Ground. Here's our pricing chart:
|Number of cards||US (Lower 48-states)||AK, HI & PR||Canada||International|
|More than 500||$29.99||$79.99||$99.99||$149.99|
It typically takes 3 - 7 days depending on the speed of the USPS (which can actually be quite fast). Same if we’re shipping you a box of cards. International cards and boxes generally take 7 - 10 days, though due to different postal services, customs and other factors they can potentially take MUCH longer. Unfortunately, this is something we have no control over :(
Unfortunately no. We send all cards USPS first class letter mail and there’s only one speed for that. Cards will usually arrive 3-7 days after you place your order.
We support nearly all the Latin characters. We're working on supporting more alphabets.
Sure. Just keep in mind that all the cards are printed and mailed from the US. Hopefully soon we’ll be printing in your neck of the woods.
100% US Postal Service first class stamps.
Regular first class postage is 55 cents.
Postcard postage is 35 cents.
International postage is $1.15
Anywhere in the world that has a functioning mail system.
Once an order is submitted we process and mail the cards within 1-2 business days. Most cards are mailed the following day.
Nope! We only send 100% printed snail mail cards. Real > virtual.
The USPS doesn't allow you to track individual cards (yet). We're working on it.
No. As we like to say “no trees were harmed in the making of any of our cards.” All of the cards are either made from 100% tree-free cotton or 100% post consumer waste recycled paper. This planet has been through enough.
Sure. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org and we'll give you credit to send yourself one.
Go to your Projects page. You can view all of your past projects and then click on any project you want to view in more detail.
Once you’ve finished customizing your card, you get the option to style your envelope the way you want it - color, font, alignment, etc. It’s one of the final steps in the flat card process. And one of the most subtly exciting.
Sure. You'll see an option to change your return address each time you do a card project.
Definitely. We have folded (4.25 x 5.5) and flat (5” x 7”) blank cards and postcards. Both horizontal and vertically oriented. Just click on the Custom tab to get started.

Email us at email@example.com and we’ll try to tweak the design to accommodate your text.
Sure. You can upload your logo to many of the business cards.
The higher the resolution, the better the image will print. 300 dpi resolution is best.
We shrink the font automatically as you fill up your card. We start your card in a large font size. Once your message has filled the card, the font size will automatically shrink a little so you have more space to write. We’ll keep shrinking the font as you fill up your card until it's ridiculous. Then we'll save you from yourself.
Sure. Just click the Font & Options button under the recipient address and click Change Font. In addition to changing the font in the card you’re working on, the new font you choose will become the default font for future cards as well as all the cards in that project.
We now have Smart Fonts! Smart Fonts use contextual alternates, which means that repeat letters are slightly different to more closely mimic actual handwriting. The font selection process was painstaking because we wanted to make sure that that every font has a vibrant personality. We want you to really feel like you’re expressing yourself with whatever font you choose.
Yeah, we have great non-handwriting fonts as well, like Calligraphy, Typewriter, and a bunch of other cool stylistic choices.
No, you can write and mail some cards now and come back later to finish the rest. Any cards you’ve written but have saved within the project will be waiting for you. When you come back, your project will be listed on your Projects.
In this case, yes. We'll let the lawyers handle this one: nothing libelous, obscene, threatening, harassing or defamatory or which infringes the intellectual property rights of any person or which in any way encourages conduct that would be unlawful or inappropriate;
We’ve noticed on some browsers sometimes (not the most scientific answer) that reviewing your message in your Edit or Sent folders can sometimes look off. The text might look like it’s going off the page. Refreshing the browser will usually return the message to normal but no matter what it looks like on the website, the messages always print perfectly. The printing software doesn’t allow the text to go off the page.
We’ve designed Postable to make it easy to write and send cards to lots of people. If you have the addresses in the system before you write cards, we’ll pre-populate each card with the name(s) and the envelopes will already be filled out with each recipient’s name and address. All you’ll need to worry about is writing the messages. If you have addresses already, our import is simple to use. If you need addresses, email everybody your Postable link and they can add their info directly to your address book. You can also add contacts manually but it’s much easier if you have a complete address book before you start a big project.
Just go to your Projects and find the card design that you'd like to send more of. Click on the card and follow the steps to send more cards.
You can upload .jpg or .png formats.
Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll try to tweak the design to accommodate your text.
