Postcards aren’t just for wishing you were here anymore! As an advertising and marketing tool, postcards are a lot more personal than other advertisements, and cost much, much less to produce. Very few other advertisements allow a person can take them and keep them on their refrigerator as a reminder.

However, if you want to get your postcards and flyers into someone’s home instead of their trash, they need to look good enough to keep. A top designer can create something both memorable and marketable, combining beautiful design with effective advertising. Below, we list the 10 best freelance designers who specialize in postcard design.

How to get the best postcard design

When they need design work, a lot of people look through some portfolios and hire the candidate they like best. This works well if you already know the style you want, but what if you haven’t settled on a final look yet? To see various options before you decide, consider a design contest.

The process for a design contest is simple. You start by writing a brief that describes the assignment and what you’re looking for. From there, top designers from around the world submit concepts according to what you need. You browse their submissions and choose the finalists. After you give them feedback and let them revise their designs, all that’s left is choosing your favorite.

If you want to see what different designers can offer before you hire one, try a design contest.

How did we choose these as the top postcard designers?

What makes a good postcard & flyer designer? Graphic design knowledge? Artistic skill? An advertising background? Why not all three!

When we chose the ten best designers on the list above, we went through a rigorous vetting process and examined these key areas:

1. Design quality

Every designer that joins 99designs receives a thorough review from an expert on our staff. These reviewers go through that designer’s portfolios and rate them on their conceptual thought, technical execution and the knowledge of design principles in their work. Based on their ratings, we then assign the designer with one of three levels:

  • Top Level
  • Mid Level
  • Entry Level

Each designer’s level is shown on their portfolio page, so you can easily see exactly whom you’re working with and know what to expect.

2. Postcard design experience

Of course, not every good designer is a good postcard designer. With their small canvas and marketing slant, postcards and flyers have a whole array of design considerations that other projects don’t have to worry about. That’s why we also looked into each of the above designers’ experience with postcards, based on previous contest performances and client feedback.

3. Professionalism

Obviously you want a top designer for your project, but you also want one who’s pleasant to work with. We also factored in professionalism to our top ten list, looking into what past clients had to say, specifically how well the designer communicated, incorporated revisions and delivered on time.
