Postcards can be used for personal and business purposes. Some families use postcards as holiday postcards or as save-the-date cards for weddings. Businesses use postcards as postcard marketing tools for sale notifications and coupons as well as to reach out to new customers. A mailing list with a specific name is generally more effective than addressing a postcard with “current resident.” Large images and bold taglines are used to draw the reader in. If your postcards are being mailed, you only have a few seconds to capture the audience’s attention. The back of your postcard is just as important as the front of the postcard. The back of the postcard is generally viewed for customer information.
Several color postcard printing options are available for your custom postcard order. Full color on both sides of postcards is available. Full color on the front of your postcard with black text on the back and full color on the front with a blank back are the other standard color options.
