Provided your postcard is no larger than 6-1/8" x 11-1/2" x 1/4" thick, (the maximum mailable size, as specified by the USPS), you can save time and money with our direct mail services. USPS delivers first-class mail in 1-3 business days.

Marketing and Design Ideas

Postcard marketing works. Not only is this demonstrated by multiple studies, the rise of postcard printing shows that direct mail advertising still truly has a place in a marketer’s tool kit.

The data shows that unlike digital marketing, postcards offer a tactile advantage that helps recipients respond better to your offers. This all means that your brand and offers are more easily recalled, and that your conversion rates will increase, compared to running the same promotions campaign purely digitally. Postcard marketing campaigns can also be paired with social media and other digital marketing tools for even better customer targeting, and an even lower cost per conversion.

Postcards aren’t just for direct mail though. They also excel as handouts for customers who have already showed interest in your offers. Add a perforation for a simple way to create a reply stub or add coupons to your handouts.
