Unlike smaller standard postcard sizes, 6” x 9” postcards have enough space for designs that emphasize a central image or combine several visual and copy. As the ideal space for photo postcards, your custom postcard would stand out against other postcards in the customer’s pile of daily junk mail. This size also qualifies for EDDM® rates so that you can target a specific ZIP code based on the demographics like income, age, or household size.

How to Create an Exceptional 6” x 9” Custom Postcard

Keep your customers in mind.

Imagine a day in the life of your customer. How do they begin their day? Do they check their mailbox in the morning or sort through it after work? What kind of messages do they read both online and offline? What are their pressing needs and problems? What colors and visuals appeal to them? Which brands do they prefer? List your observations and integrate these into creating your 6” x 9” postcard design.

Choose a postcard that will appeal to their tastes and lifestyle.

Now that you better understand your audience, you can select a postcard they’ll want to read and reference.
