FAQs

What about PDF files and what can I do if I experience problems with uploading?

PDF files from Microsoft Office applications are unsuitable for the creation of postcards for quality reasons. Create the PDFs using a PDF print driver or use the postcard editor directly in the PostCard Creator application.

If the creation of PDFs does not work, please contact our support team at postcardcreator.ch@swisspost.ch.

How long does it take to produce the cards?

It takes two working days to produce, with mailing on the third day at the earliest. In order to calculate when the card will be delivered, you need to add the number of days for the type of service you selected.

You also have the option of sending the card on the same day for a 30 percent surcharge on the cost of production. The conditions are:

  • Order placed by 2 p.m. at the latest
  • Maximum amount of 200 copies
  • Formats A6, A5, A6/5 and B5
  • Type of dispatch: A Mail/PRIORITY

How do I pay?

The following payment options are available:

  • Credit card
  • PostFinance Card Direct
  • PostFinance e-Card
  • TWINT
  • Payment by invoice (only for business customers who maintain a billing relationship with Swiss Post)

Debiting KLP credit is another payment option.

What does the price include?

The price includes printing the cards and mailing them at the rate you select.

You pay the price indicated in the price list. A flat-rate fee of CHF 5.00 per order is charged for sending unaddressed cards.

How do I upload my addresses to PostCard Creator?

The address data must be entered into an Excel file to upload the addresses. The sample file in PostCard Creator under “Import addresses”, “Download Excel sample file” can be used as a template.

Important information:

  • The uppermost line must contain the column labels
  • Postal code and city must be in separate columns and must be completed
  • For international consignments, the country needs to be in a separate column
  • The salutation should also be in a separate column (Dear Mr. X, Dear John)
  • The same information must always stay in the same column (street always in the column for streets)

You can download a sample Excel form here

Where can I manage my postcard mailshots?

All orders are stored in “My products” regardless of their status. The current status is shown in the “Status” line.

This is where you can edit, delete, or duplicate your mailshots. The mouse-over effect can help you identify the buttons: Position your mouse over one and a small help text will appear.

How safe is my data?

We guarantee that your data will be safe: PostCard Creator meets the Swiss Data Protection regulations.

All data is saved on servers located in Switzerland.

Data is always transmitted with SSL encryption, making it secure. We comply with Swiss and European data protection regulations governing address data.
