Postcards: Not just for mail
The economy of printed postcards makes them also suitable for non-mail purposes as we mentioned in a previous blog article, Increasing retention of postcards where we featured an oversize business card application on a 4×6 postcard.
Smaller postcard sizes, such as our current special, can be easily tucked into pockets and compartments. Their durable 14pt stock increases longevity.
Here are a few non-postcard ideas which may stimulate your own creative processes and provide you or your clients with cost-effective printed communication.
Dainty menus are a beautiful way to feature drinks, appetizers and specials. Limited menus can be formatted nicely on any postcard size and the economy of printing them makes for a high quality yet inexpensive take-a-way. Catered events are a great application for postcards size menus too. Beyond food, mini service menus for Salon’s, Auto Detailing, and many other service related businesses are an effective way to professionally present information.
Packaged products often require information and provide an opportunity to feature other products to customers. Postcards are an economical solution with varied sizes to fit nearly any packaging system. Product tips and shortcuts cards for items which require infrequent setup, such as camp tents, are useful as reminders. Desktop cards with keyboard shortcuts are always handy too.
Feature events or other information to be posted or as take-ones in high traffic areas. Bulletin boards are often filled in desired locations but your “mini poster” will likely find a spot. Our 6×11 postcard size provides sufficient area to feature expanded information. Create a minimalist design on 4×6 or 5×7 for a compact miniature attention getter. Print both sides of the card for the take-a-way factor.
How many times have you seen an image and thought “wow, that would make a great postcard”? Print that image on one side of a note card and format the other side for writing personal or imprinting messages. A series of images can be created and printed economically on any postcard size. We can even trim your cards to a custom size such as square or narrow, at no extra charge, to make them unique. Envelopes are available in various sizes to contain your messages. Remember to order uncoated or satin finished cards for written or desktop imprint use.
Commemorate events or milestones with little takeaway cards featuring aspects of accomplishments. Compile notable historical events into a series for collectors. Circulate them among clients and associates or distribute them in campaign strategy. A custom size and spot UV add value to your printed collectable for a nominal price increase.
Send out greetings to clients and prospects for all occasions. A printed celebratory card carries more meaning when received given the frequency of internet saturated messaging. Holiday, festive, or just fun images are available thru royalty free stock art services at reasonable use fees. Create or commission your own custom images for your greetings. Printed envelopes with a matching image theme enhance the spirit of the message for your recipients experience.
With all the possible uses, our October Monthly Special 4×6 and 4.25×6 cards present affordable opportunities. High quality offset color printing complete with aqueous coating or UV varnish over 14 Pt. stock offers an economic advantage in October to enhance your printed communications.
