Are these Photo Cards printed on a sort of heavyweight (lb) cardstock with the photo finishes or just regular photo paper? If the latter, how thick are these? Want these to be a little thick personally. Thanks!
Hey Jack! The 4x8" Photo Cards are the only size that is printed on photographic paper. The other sizes are printed on cardstock, like you are looking for. For cardstock, our Signature Paper is one of the heaviest papers available at 130#. Our photographic paper is a little heavier/thicker than your standard photographic paper.

Is it possible to create a thank you note postcard? I would like to put our picture on the front and on the back have our address in the corner with space to write a short ty note. I see postcard save the date cards that I could adjust for a thank you note card, but on the back, their is a picture where I would like to write a note.
Hey Lindsey! We unfortunately do not have any designs for thank you cards that match a postcard design. We have many folded thank you card designs that have room for a handwritten note, but not in a post card design. Please e-mail our customer service team at to see if they are able to assist you further. Thanks!
Lindsey Gruwell
Mpix Thanks so much for your quick response!
Stephanie Berg Davis
Are you capable of printing any cards 2 sided?
We sure are, Stephanie. While our DIY Photo Cards (4x8) are printed on one-side only, our 4x5.5, 5x5, and 5x7 DIY Cards can be printed on both front and back. The DIY Card options that are available with double-sided printing can be found here:
Kimberly Tank
Why can you not upload a horizontal card design when there is a template for it? There's only an option for vertical??
Hey Kimberly, can you please e-mail our customer service team with the problem you are experiencing? Their e-mail address is and they will get back to you super fast!

Mpix It is now Friday, 11/14/2014 and this problem still has not been fixed! Pathetic.
David Gunter To order a horizontal card, after you add your image to the blank template, select "Rotate Image" and your image will be displated horizontally. Thanks!
Trish Parrish
Mpix There's no option to Rotate Image. Would really like the option for an 8x4 (horizontal) full image card!
Meg Levie
I need to print an invitation I bought from etsy. The size is 5x7. I would like it printed on card stock. Can you do that?
Hey Meg! We sure can - head on over to our DIY section and upload any design you would like! The DIY section is located here:
Jayne Keel Morris
I am looking for a collage in a 4x6 or maybe a square print. Do you have something similar?
Hey Jayne! We do not have a collage builder on our site at this time. To order a collage, you would have to design one in a photo editing program and then upload the finished file to our website to order. Thanks!
Zane Giles
Im looking to get cards made up to sell separately. Do you have options to add clear sleeves to ea card/envelope? also for prints and print/mat combinations. Thank you
Hey Zane! Unfortunately we do not have this feature at this time, however you might be interested in our drop shipping feature that you can read about at the bottom of the page here: Thanks!
Jodie Hall
Why can't I simply use my 5x7 picture and get envelopes. When I try to make it a "card" it keeps cutting off the edges, even when I shrink the image to 4x6. This should be easy.
Our apologies, Jodie. Custom Photo Cards in this category need to be sized at 4x8 rather than 5x7 or 4x6.
Roger Glazier
Do you not do two sided color model comp cards?
Hey Roger! Our DIY Cards can be designed to have printing on the front and back of the Cards. If you have any questions, you can email our customer service team for assistance at

When I try to use the .psd file to make certain I'm within the image size guidelines, I get this error: Could not complete your request because a JPEG marker segment length is too short (the file may be truncated or incomplete).
