Printing half-fold postcards give you twice the space of flat postcards but mail at the same low standard letter rate. This format makes it simple to convert existing brochures or booklets to folded custom postcards. This combination of more space for content and cost-effective mailing makes them an excellent direct mail tool.

Choose between economical 10 pt. cover stock or premium 14 pt. cover stock with your choice of gloss, high gloss, matte, or uncoated finish on one or both sides. This stock selection makes it simple to find a stock that best matches your brand and design.  All half-fold postcards are in mailable sizes. Size options (before folding) include 10” x 7”, 12” x 8”, 6” x 8.5”, 11” x 8.5”, 12” x 9”, and 12” x 10.5” -- all which fit USPS standards for First Class Mail when folded.

Half-Fold Postcard Marketing and Design Ideas

Half-fold postcards make a great alternative to brochures. You can even use pre-existing brochure designs and easily convert them into a potent direct mail tool. Printed on premium glossy or uncoated card stock, half-fold postcards give you plenty of space to market your message, yet fold for easy (and inexpensive) mailing. These same qualities also make them an excellent option for postcard invitations.

Take advantage of the added space and include a perforated tear-off for coupons or reply stubs on your bifold postcard design. Get creative and design something with your customers in mind. Whether it’s a comment card, survey form, or order form, a reply card gives your customers an easy way to respond to your advertisement, which will increase your ROI.
