Use basic tools and techniques in Adobe InDesign to create a professional-looking postcard you can email, print, and share online.
What you'll need
Set up your document
Get to know the InDesign workspace and set parameters for your new project.
Add images and text
Now comes the fun part — filling your blank page with images and text. Check out Adobe Stock for royalty-free images and illustrations. And use guides to precisely position elements on your page.
Fine-tune your design
Easily control the format of your text and specify color. Keep assets handy for other projects by adding images, logos, type styles, and colors to your Adobe Creative Cloud Libraries.
Position elements in the layout
Smart Guides offer “hints” to help you align the elements of your design as you draw and move around the page.
Share your postcard with the world
Save a PDF that you can email or upload to your print service provider. With the Publish Online feature, you can quickly create a link to your postcard that you can share online in a blog or website or on social media.
If you don’t see the Publish Online button in the InDesign user interface, it means your Creative Cloud membership plan doesn’t include access to this feature. Contact your plan administrator if you have any questions.
