How Thick Are Canva Postcards?

Canva postcards are a great way to send customized messages to your friends and family. They come in a variety of sizes, materials, and thicknesses.

Knowing the thickness of your postcard can be important for ensuring that it arrives safely and securely.

Canva offers postcards in two standard sizes: 4×6” and 5×7”. The thickness of each size is determined by the type of paper it is printed on.

Postcards printed on standard cardstock paper will be approximately 14pt thick, while postcards printed on premium cardstock paper will be approximately 16pt thick.

For those who want extra protection for their postcard, Canva also offers laminated postcards which are thicker than traditional cardstock. Laminated postcards are 20pt thick and offer additional rigidity and durability, making them perfect for mailing or storing in albums or scrapbooks.

In addition to standard or laminated postcards, Canva also offers magnetized postcards which are even thicker than the laminated option. Magnetized postcards are 25pt thick and feature an adhesive backing that allows you to attach them to any magnetic surface such as a refrigerator or filing cabinet.


No matter what type of Canva Postcard you choose, you can rest assured knowing that it will arrive safely and securely thanks to its sturdy construction. Standard cardstock Canva Postcards measure 14pt thick, while laminated and magnetized options measure 20pt and 25pt respectively. Whatever your needs may be, there is a perfect Canva Postcard for you!
