Special Postcard Design Note: Be careful in adding your name/address to a postcard design. As both sides of the mailpiece are fully viewable and the only notice of which side is “up” is postage, do not place your name and address in a standard addressing format (3 lines roughly center of card) on either side of the card – unless you want the card returned to you. Because of the nature of mailed cards and automated sorting systems, cards may get “flipped” in the mail stream and returned to you: this acts as a return service, effectively “using” the postage to mail the card to yourself.

June 2012 E-Zine (V11#6): Marketing Wednesday, Jul 18 2012 

In today’s world it is important to send out a polished appearance. This includes using handwriting only for specific impact. A PR mailer should have your return information printed on it, however a hand addressed piece can add to the personalized touch. We offer a variety of printed envelope options (standard minimum 500). Hesitant to buy 100s of custom imprinted envelopes for this project? Did you know USPS can send you envelopes in several styles with postage already on them in quantities as few as 50? Fairly plain ones cost 57 cents each – only 1 penny more than a blank post-paid envelope from USPS. Visit USPS  and mouse over “shop” (in the blue line) and click “Order Personalized Stamped Envelopes” (3rd choice). Don’t forget to sign in (or create your free account). Payment options even include PayPal! (instructions current as of 7-18-12)
