How to set up your 9×11 EDDM® Postcard for Print
9×11 EDDM® Postcards are printed with a full bleed. To achieve this, Your image is first printed and then they are trimmed to size. Which is 9×11 in this case. Since there is some trimming involved we ask that your background image is slightly larger. So that it is 9.127×11.127 in size and then these are trimmed to 9×11. This way if there is any blade shifting, there will still be ink on the edges. If your design program does not support 300 Resolution you can use a pixel size of 2738 x 3338. For your 9×11 EDDM® postcards.
