Postcard Marketing Tips

A Quick Guide to Postcard Design and Messaging

A large-sized postcard presents you with an opportunity for lots of graphics and copy. However, just because you have a larger canvas to put your offer on, doesn’t mean that you should try to fill every available space with a picture or message! Go big and bold with your postcard design but don’t overwhelm customers by trying to “say too much”.

Here are some things to consider before creating your 5.5 x 8.5 postcards:

Make Maximum Use of Both Sides

You are not limited to just one side of your postcard. As long as you keep within the postal regulations you can put extra messaging and graphics on the back, such as your logo, web addresses, contacts, social media sites, and other useful info (use one of our start file templates in our digital specs tab to design your postcard within postal regulations).

Keep it Simple

When designing a post card offer, you should always try to keep the design and messaging as straightforward and easy-to-read as possible. Don’t confuse people with lots of images and masses of text. A promotion that looks like it’s too much effort to look at and read will likely be discarded. Be as instant and immediate with your messaging and graphics as possible. Add coupons, listings and product info but use images sparingly and keep the wording short and sweet. You should also use only one or two font styles and avoid over-elaborate fonts that people struggle to read.

Logo and Brand Building

Include your logo on both the front and back of your post cards. Make it prominent and try to keep a similar design style and message tone on every post card you send out. Your brand should be more than merely your logo; it should be a consistent visual style and message that people start to recognize and possibly even get excited about every time it comes in the mail. Everything from the font style to the way you layout your design should remain consistent.

Headline and Call-to-Action

A headline and call-to-action should be on every marketing promotion that you send out. They help customers to immediately understand what you are offering them and how they can act upon this information.

Here are some examples of headlines and call-to-actions that were used for postcard promotions:


  • Get 25% Off All Coats and Jackets in Our Winter Sale!
  • Here’s a $20 Gift Card to Use Storewide!
  • Copy placem Professional Wedding Photography for Just $500!
