    The Coding Accuracy Support System (CASS) compares your mailing list to the USPS address database, which helps mail carriers deliver your postcards accurately.

Oh, The Places You’ll Go!

Whether you’re introducing your services or keeping in touch with clients, postcard printing is powerful. Here’s why:

Versatile. Want to let the neighborhood know you’re open for business? Print your address and contact details on a postcard. If you’re promoting a sale, include your discount code and have customers bring it when they buy. Use postcards as membership forms that customers can fill out and mail back. There are so many ways you can use postcards for your promotions.

High readership. Unlike digital ads, postcards have that tangibility to capture your audience’s attention. While most online promotions get ignored or skipped, postcard mailing lets you reach your customers directly in their homes.

Easy to test and track. Because you know exactly how many postcards you sent out, you won’t have trouble measuring the effectiveness of your campaign. It also takes little commitment to start with a small batch and see how it’s being received. If you’re getting good results, it’s time to work on a bigger campaign!

FAQs

Q: What is the best size for my postcard?
A: The two most popular and USPS-qualified postcard sizes are 4” x 6” and 5” x 7”. Choose size 4” x 6” for a straightforward ad or announcement. If you want to add more copy and images, we recommend size 5” x 7” since this will also help your postcard stand out from the rest of the mail.

Q: What’s the difference between Direct Mail and EDDM®?
A: Both are forms of mail advertising. Direct mail is a more targeted approach to a list of recipients that may not necessarily be in one neighborhood. EDDM® does not require mailing lists and may target receivers based on location, zip code, or city. In business, EDDM® is convenient for acquiring customers, while direct mail is more commonly used for customer retention.

Q: Can I print on both sides of my postcards?
A: Yes. We offer full-color printing on the front and back of direct mail postcards. Just select this option on the Printed Side dropdown in the order calculator.

Q: How do I rent a mailing list?
A: You can rent a one-time use residential or commercial mailing list for an additional cost. The price for renting a mailing list is based on the quantity of the order and whether you want a residential or commercial list. Just select your preferred option on the Mailing List Type drop-down on the order calculator. Note that renting either a mailing list may delay your order depending on how specialized you want the list.

Q: I have my own mailing list. How do I submit it?
A: Check out this guide on how to format your mailing list. When your list is ready, be sure to select your preferred option in the Mailing List dropdown on the order calculator.
