My file are over 5000px large. Attached are the setings I use :

Most printing is from jpegs. Mebbe your
vendor differs on that ... I don't know if
thaz the case.

As to sharpening, hardly seems to be an
issue for postcard size prints, assuming
that there is enuf contrast to provide at
least some impression of sharpness.

I've seen plenty of postcards announcing
gallery events, and they differ noticeably
from the actual displayed pieces seen on
the gallery walls ... BUT ! they do look
very good as post cards. IOW, it doesn't
hurt to let a reputable printing house do
whatever looks best to them, rather than
attempting "total control" on your part.
