The design sounds simple enough to do yourself. The first step is identifying what formats they accept that you either have the programs to create or can get them. (Adobe’s expensive software such as Photoshop and Illustrator both have 30-day trial periods. They also have Photoshop Elements which is significantly cheaper, but can do most things the average non-graphic designer would need to do.)

Otherwise, read through their tips which should highlight things like minimum dpi (300) and the bleed area/margins. (Bleed is how far you design past the actual size of the postcard so there are no white spaces and the margins should be about the same size inward to assume a “safe” printing space.)

Drop in a high res photo and then insert your text in whatever fonts you want. There are a ton of free font sites that can give you more options. As long as you save it in a format that embeds that information (PDF is great for that), you’re good.
