Powerful tools in InDesign make layout easy.

Define your canvas
Decide on rectangular or square for your design, suitable for mailing or simply attaching on a notice board. Use one of the many preset sizes or set customised dimensions for added interest.
Select the elements of your design: a single image or a collage, short text chunks and calls to action. Use frames to organise your postcard.
Import images and text
Add images and text to your frames. Search Adobe Stock for graphics or photos that best illustrate your message.
Print and share
Save as a PDF or EPS or as colour separations for a print provider. Or post as a JPEG, PNG or TIFF directly to social media and the web.
Easy scaling
Scale, stretch and shrink by grabbing and moving frame handles. Click the Content Grabber to resize an image without changing a frame.
Paragraph borders
Add beautiful borders to paragraphs. Highlight important text using graphic designs that focus interest.
Colour blends
Define how colours will mix in overlapping objects. Use advanced settings like Colour Burn and Luminosity for precise control.
