Here are six postcard marketing ideas that will help you get the most from your  postcard marketing campaign:

Grab People’s Attention

Postcards should be attention-grabbing, so be sure to include high-quality, full-color photos or other striking images and graphics on a glossy finish.

Keep Your Message Simple

Short, bold headlines work the best. Make the most of both sides of the postcard. The non-address side should have the biggest, boldest photos and colors. The other side should carry your offer, contact information and other details.

Be Timely

These postcard marketing ideas work great for carrying timely messages, like offers with a deadline or customer reminders (e.g., “your contract expires in 30 days”). Create a sense of urgency by encouraging quick action.


Think Multi-Purpose

These postcard marketing ideas can be used for many things, including reminders, gift certificates, coupons, new product announcements, openings, discounts, directing people to your website or even as tickets.

Stand Out With Oversized Cards

Oversized cards – such as 6″ × 11″ – are a great way to stand out. They also allow extra space for more content, like photos, coupons or a map.

Customize Your Message

Customizing your message with digital variable printing can increase response rates to your offer.
