Start a new postcard from scratch in Adobe InDesign. Choose the right settings from the beginning so you have problem-free printing.
What you'll need
Click Create new, and then click the Print tab to automatically configure some settings. We changed several settings to customize our postcard. We also added a print bleed, so our design can print to the very edge of the postcard. Select Preview to see a live update.
We rotated the second page so it would face up while designing it. After right-clicking page 2 in the Pages panel, we chose Page Attributes > Rotate Spread View > 90°CW. It’s not necessary to rotate it back for printing, but if you wish to set it on its side again, just right-click the rotation icon next to page 2 and choose 90° CCW.
We used these settings to create an avant-garde postcard to announce a gallery opening.
Your postcard is off to a great start. Continue adding stylish text, colorful graphics, and photos to make an attention-grabbing announcement.
