* Color: Colors have the ability to set a mood or emotion, so make sure to use the colors that are perfect for the occasion. Stick to contrasting colors to achieve a good color combination. Refer to the color wheel to know what colors look good when paired with each other.

* Text: Choose a legible font style and avoid using more than two fonts. Experimenting with stylish fonts may be tempting, but you should always remember not to go overboard in using font different styles for your postcard design. Crowding your postcard with different font styles won’t do your design any good. You wouldn’t want to communicate the wrong messages, because of fonts that are difficult to read.

Once you’re done designing your own Holiday postcards, you can head to a reputable online printer that offers high-quality postcard printing services. Seeking help from a top-quality online printing company is guaranteed to give you vibrant and professional-looking postcards.
