Postcard Printing and Mailing

By outsourcing your postcard printing and mailing needs, many businesses have been able to dramatically reduce marketing costs. You can find small local businesses as well as large national businesses marketing today through postcards. Such is the effectiveness of this marketing medium, made even more attractive with the low cost of postcard printing and mailing these days.

If you want excellent marketing results using postcards as your medium, then you need to know everything about postcard printing and mailing. There are many ways in which you can make your advertising more effective and less expensive by following these easy postcard printing and mailing tips.

• Make your postcard attractive but keep your message brief: The worst thing you can do when marketing with postcards is overencumber the mailer. Even if you are sending plain text postcards make sure the message is brief, to the point and includes a call to action. There is no need to go into detail about your company, product or service. Your goal is to create a short message with a call to action that people will act on.  Offering something free is a great way to do this. Provide your website URL, street address and a toll free number.  If you don’t have a toll free number, I reccomend getting one.  The cost is minimal, and it will improve your call back ratios.

• Choose a proper sized postcard: You can either choose a standard 5×7 inch postcard or a 4.25×6 mini postcard which are easy to mail out.  On the other hand, you can get the immediate attention of your target group by sending out a large postcard of size 5.5×8 or 6×11. This is sure to catch the eye of the customers and will get at least a glance, if not read in full.

• Design your postcard content effectively: Use a catchy headline and again, be sure to include a call to action.  In addition, you should be printing out your website address and toll free number in large and bold easy to read fonts.

• Minimum printing and mailing costs: There is no need to spend a fortune on postcard printing and mailing. You can get great deals from printing companies online who offer inexpensive postcard printing and mailing services.  Many of these companies also help you in designing your postcards, which is a bonus you should take advantage of.  Having something profesionaly designed is an excellent add on.

By following these easy and effective postcard printing and mailing tips you are sure to make a good impression on your prospects. Make sure you mail them out to a good list of qualified prospects to get better results.  You can check out this very inexpensive US business database that I reccomend if you are in need of a list to work from. Follow these tips and increase your business today.  Postcard marketing is one of the most effective means of advertising, and can be done for a minimal cost these days with the postcard printing and mailing services widely found online.

Many postcard websites will allow you to edit the contents, add or change images, photos and/or text right online.

If the website does not allow you to edit your postcards, you can also save the postcards to your desktop and edit them using Photoshop or another photo editing software (Gimp is a great free photo editing software you might want to look into). This is great for people who are computer literate and want to go the extra mile with their personalization using a free Christmas postcard template.

Vintage Postcards

If you are an avid vintage postcards collector then there are certain things you need to know about their authenticity, especially if you are purchasing them online.

When talking about vintage postcards, the older they are the more value they can potentially have, so you should always check for their date. It’s better to choose postcards from the early 20th century or older. Sometimes the names of the landmarks or cities have changed, or the places may not even exist.  Sometimes locations have changed their appearance or the people or event shown on the postcard may no longer be around.  All these factors result in higher demand and higher value.

It’s also important that the vintage postcards you want to purchase should be in good condition. It means that the image or the details of the images on the postcard should be clearly visible. Make sure you get to see a clear image of the postcard before you buy.

Whether you are seeking photographic postcards, printed postcards or an artist’s impression of a particular postcard it is important that they are truly vintage postcards. The print or their production type may not matter so much as long as they are a classic.

It’s very difficult to get original vintage postcards from the 1900s and earlier.  In addition, they are also quite expensive. So if you are a collector of postcards from that era but don’t want to spend a fortune, then it’s better to opt for their prints, photographs or an artist’s impression of that postcard as they will be fresh, easily available on various sites and auction houses and less expensive that the original.

Another way to check if the postcard is a classic is by looking at the back of the postcard. First of all, the earliest postcards were smaller in size.  They also had an undivided back, which means that there is no line dividing the back of the postcard between the message and address sections.

You can get vintage postcards in other sizes if they are replicas. They come in bookmark sizes, lettercards or giant postcard sizes.

You can learn more about vintage postcards by selling or buying postcards on auction sites like eBay. Your knowledge will grow with your experience so keep your jump in and learn as much as you can about these vintage postcards.

Marketing Postcards

Postcards are fast becoming an effective marketing medium for many businesses across the country. People have started sending out postcards that promote their products or services. Not only businesses, but the latest election campaigns saw a large number or political candidates using postcards as their medium to get their word out.

This way of communication using marketing postcards can help to market or promote your business. Marketing postcards are a very effective way of getting your message across to your prospects for many reasons.  Let’s take a look at a few:

• Right off the bat, they are cost effective; especially for small businesses who do not want to spend a lot of money on advertising and marketing. Bulk printing of postcards costs much less than what you would have spent on marketing your business through letters or any other medium.

• Second, using marketing postcards creates an immediate impact in the people as the message on them is not shielded by envelopes. One can just turn the postcard over to see who sent it and read the message. It’s very hard to ignore a postcard and it’s very unlikely that a postcard will go unread.

• Third, you don’t have to waste time on collating, stuffing letters into the envelope and licking the stamps and affixing them to the envelopes. You save a lot of time by sending out postcards which have the postage stamps printed on them. This can be done by any stamp printing service or by a postal service like USPS. Plus, postcard stamps cost much less than letter postage stamps.

• Last but not least, using marketing postcards makes it easy to mail out and helps you in keeping your mailing list up-to-date. A postcard with a bad address is automatically returned to the sender making it easy to update your mail list.

With all these benefits of using marketing postcards, more and more small companies are looking to promote their business with this cheap yet effective medium. There are no hassles involved in mailing out postcards. But like any other marketing strategies, using marketing postcards still requires that they be sent to the correct prospects. Your mailing list will determine the success of your business.  You can check out this resource for a very well priced business database.

So the next time you want to market your product or service then the easiest, cheapest and the most effective way is to send out business postcards giving brief details about your company.
