History of Printing Full Color Products
A postcard can say so much more than a letter with only words. This only goes to prove that a picture can say a thousand words. The first postcard was issues in the United Kingdom in 1870. But at this stage the postcards were not printed and only had a pre-printed stamp on them. The first picture postcard was issued in 1894 and smaller court cards were issued between 1895 and 1899.
The size of the postcard was standardized in 1899 and 5.5 inches by 3.5 inches became the size of the postcard. The picture on the postcard did not leave much space to write the message. Postcards were used as a common way of communicating for travelers who would send picturesque postcards of the place that they were visiting.
The Divided Back Postcard came into being in 1902 where half of the back side of the envelope was segregated for the message. The highest numbers of postcards were probably issued between 1902 and 1914 when the Great War broke out. This Golden Age of postcards lasted till Word War I since telephones were not in use.
Printing was an expensive proposition for businesses till the 1800’s. It was only in the 20th century that ordinary people and businesses could afford to print their own brochures too. As technology made this possible, businesses rose to the marketing possibilities that brochures, posters and booklets offered. Desktop publishing and other software made customized designs possible for items such as postcards, brochures, booklets and posters too.
The use of attractive, vivid and vibrant colors was further used to add to the attractiveness of the full color marketing material. With technology today, you can use effects such as silhouettes, shadows and enhance the look and feel of invites too.
