How to Utilize Postcard Printing to Your Advantage

Customers are more likely to read postcards than open an email. The USPS 2017 Household Diary Study on Mail Use reports 74% of all US households read or scan their physical advertising mail.

Here’s how you can create effective custom postcards your customers will be glad to read. You can apply all of these steps using our easy online design tool or postcard maker.

1. Decide on and stick to your goal

Your postcard should be easy to scan in one glance. Make sure the main goal is clear. Some common messages sent out in postcards include discounts or promos, a new location or business opening announcements, and event invitations.

Make sure each element has a purpose and encourages the recipient to take action on your message. For example, important details like the location of your store or event must be clear.

2. Know your customers

Your design and copy should appeal to your target audience. What colors, fonts, and graphics appeal to your market? If you’re targeting a high-income household, how should the information be presented?

What kind of attitudes and beliefs do your customers have? These will help specify your approach in creating an effective postcard message.

3. Add a call-to-action on both sides

Unlike regular print marketing materials, a postcard has two sides, so you can maximize your marketing. Adding a clear, easy to understand call-to-action on both sides ensures your message gets across.

4. Deliver your message to the right audience

Add mailing services to your custom postcard printing or purchase the low postage rates using EDDM®.

Mailing services are customizable after you’ve indicated the specs of your postcards order. You’ll be asked to upload a mailing list, indicate the number of pieces to be mailed, postage type, and the mailing date.

EDDM® allows you to save on postage and targets more addresses as compared to traditional direct mail. All available postcard sizes are USPS approved for EDDM®.
