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 gloss 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.
