Why send out postcards?
Postcards tick off all the boxes for print marketers. They’re flexible, affordable, and easy to create. What’s more, they’re a format that makes it easy to make strong emotional connections. Taken together, this results in much higher conversion rates compared to formats such as telemarketing, conventional print advertising, or emails. Even the very act of touching an object can create emotional bonds other formats cannot easily replicate.

How to Create Designs for Postcards That Convert:
Try these ideas to get the most out of your postcard designs.
- Use quality images. Make sure they’re good enough to sell the card on their own.
- Slightly oversized cards are more memorable, but tend to be more expensive.
- Keep text and clutter to a minimum.
- Always keep mailing requirements in mind (like size restrictions and stamp placement).
- Go with the best stock your budget allows.
- Always proofread your copy.
- Choose rounded die-cut corners for a classy, understated elegance.
- When in doubt, stick with a visually striking yet limited color palette.
- Don’t forget to include a call-to-action.
- Choose a reliable print service that will deliver high quality postcards.
- Don’t use unlicensed images or obvious stock photos.
