Postcard Marketing Tips
Choosing the Right Postcard Size for My Promotions
What size of postcard is right for me? With so many post card sizes to choose from, it’s often difficult to pick the one that fits your business and budget. Oversized postcards with eye-catching designs will no doubt get you noticed, but small postcards will save you money in both printing and mailing costs.
Here are 3 things to consider when choosing your postcard size:
If you are on a tight budget, consider a standard 4x6 postcard with a “short and sweet” promotional message to mail to customers.
- Design Space
Detailed designs such as event promotions and surveys will most likely require a greater design space so that the images can be seen and the font is readable. Choose the size of card in relation to your design and text. Don’t try to fill every space with an image or message. There should be plenty of (blank) negative space in your design to make it easy on the eye. Try a 5.5 x 8.5 or 6x9 postcard if you need extra space.
- Messaging Requirements
Comprehensive sales offers about products and services may require more room so that your sales message can be properly expressed. It’s not advisable to try to squeeze a lot of text into a small design space. If it’s not easy-to-read, then people simply won’t read it. Use large size postcards such as 6 x 11 and 8.5 x 11 when you need to create brochure-style mailers.
Guide to Postcard Sizes
Standard Postcard Sizes
Choose 4" x 6" and 5" x 7" postcards when you want to send quick-and-easy mailers for simple company promotions and sales offers. They are the most popular and most affordable postcard sizes – easy to design, cheap to print and they get you the best USPS mailing rate. They can be used for just about any marketing project, but smaller sizes are typically used for sales offers, discount coupons, business reply cards, and event invitations
Large Postcard Sizes
5.5" x 8.5" and 6" x 9" postcards not only give your designs some “breathing space,” but they also provide plenty of room for your marketing copy. The other benefit of these sizes is that they are not as costly to print or mail as oversized postcards but can still pack quite a marketing punch! Use them for big-impact sales promotions, real estate listings, calendars and brochure-style mailers.
Oversized postcards give you the most impact for your mailing campaigns. Our 6" x 11” and 8.5" x 11" postcard sizes represent a practical solution for companies that need all the space that postal regulations will allow. Restaurant owners, for instance, find these larger sizes invaluable for sending out their menus to local customers. They are also used for event programs, multi-coupon mailers, multi-listing real estate promotions, and advertising campaigns.
Whatever size you choose, postcard printing is the simplest way to get your business message directly in the hands of your customers. Put your sales offers, products and business messages on a quality NextDayFlyers postcard mailer to create one of the most direct and effective promotions.
