Postcard Printing Made Easy

The marketing arena is on fire. Just where do you find ads these days? Newspapers, magazines, televisions, billboards, dustbins, buses – literally everywhere. Among these vast advertising media, it becomes increasing hard for marketers to attract target markets’ attention.
That’s why marketers are now shifting back to more traditional forms of communication. One such form is postcards. And indeed they are great marketing tools. Why? Because they are very affordable and easy to create, thanks to the advent of online postcard printing.

The following tips will be handy for every business which wants to print high-quality postcards:

Size does matter!
Since online printers offer a variety of sizes, it becomes incredibly difficult to choose a particular size. Should you use jumbo postcards or just standard size postcards? Jumbo postcards are usually around 6 x 9 in size, or plus or minus a half-inch on either side. On the other hand, standard sizes are around 4 x 6 in size.

Through time and use, marketers have found that jumbo postcards are better in attracting customers' attention than standard sizes. Why? First, because their larger size makes them stand out easily from other standard size postcards and postal cards. And secondly, the same larger format allows them to carry more information and pictures. Both these lead to higher response rates.

Thanks to the large number of postcard sizes offered by online printing companies, it's only a matter of second before you find a size that suits your preferences.

Quantity also matters!
You must calculate exactly how many postcards you will need before you start printing them on an online printer. And your calculations should be realistic. For instance, if you are trying to reach 1000 potential customers, then it is useless to print 2000 postcards. Also make sure that you don’t spend the entire promotion budget on postcards alone. Postcards are meant to reduce your promotion expenditures, not increase them. If you find you cannot reach enough target customers, and then probably it’s time you either increase your postcard quantity or switch to other forms of communication, whichever costs less.

Last but not the Least: Paper Quality!
Postcards are available in glossy, matte, textured and regular coatings. Although glossy papers are twice as costly as regular papers, they may make your postcards stand out from the crowd.

Not only will the glossy finish help gain the recipients’ attention but it will also present a professional image of your business. Glossy papers are absolutely necessary if your card contains pictures or lots of colors, both of which are common features of postcards. Note, however, that glossy papers are not compatible with laser printers.

Print at a reputable company!
There are normally wide ranges of exclusive features provided by the top players in the market to fulfill your postcard printing needs and give you the maximum benefits at acceptable pricing.

Always be careful when you are choosing your online postcard printer. After all, your postcards can either break or make new customer relationships!
