    • This is necessary to ensure that the postcard is the correct size to use in Campaigns.
  • Click Start Download.


9. Now that you have downloaded the front of the postcard, select the second page, at the bottom of the design editor.


10. Now, use the following settings to download the back of the postcard:

  • Select the Current Design option.
