Postcard Marketing & Printing

Many businesses use postcards to market their services or products because of its simplicity, versatility and cost effectiveness. It’s an important form of communication that’s inexpensive and can reach a wide audience. Businesses can greatly benefit from this method of marketing because it focuses on selling the product or service directly to the customer.

There are 3 important factors to consider when deciding to use postcards: Postcard size, paper stock, and design. Familiarizing yourself with these 3 factors will save time, cost and achieve positive results.

Postcards come in several common sizes: 4x6, 4x9, 5x7, 5.5x8.5, 6x9 and 6x11. Be sure to talk with your printer to find out which size and price best fits your marketing purpose and advertising budget.

Paper stock refers to the thickness of the postcard which is measured in points. A common stock for postcards is “12 point gloss cover.” The gloss coating is applied to the cards after the printing process and gives it a shiny appearance.

A creatively designed postcard can also prove to be effective. The right kind of color usage and imagery can greatly enhance the product or service being marketed.

By carefully considering these aspects of postcard printing, you will not only save on advertising expense but also discover a practical marketing tool for your product or service in today’s market.
