Direct Mail Campaign Services

Posted on: November 15th, 2012 by No Comments

 Snail mail may be a dying mode of communication, but that’s actually an advantage when you’re advertising a business, event, gallery opening, special offer, or political campaign. Why, you ask? Well, because while everyone else is bombarding your potential client’s email inbox with stuff that will probably be routed right into his or her junk mail folder, you’ll be sending a custom-printed postcard offer he or she is guaranteed to actually pick up in his or her two hands. In this way, physical mail still has distinct advantages over electronic messages: one literally carries no weight, while the other puts a real-life letter in the consumer’s hand. Print an eye-catching postcard offer, and you’re guaranteed to make an impact and ultimately get a response.

Another nice thing about postcard printing is that the end product is versatile. Yes, you can slap a stamp on it and put it in the mail to your customers or potential customers. Or, to make it easier on yourself, you can enlist Elite Flyers to do a direct mail campaign so you can saturate the neighborhood with your message without ever having to visit the post office. But when you print a custom postcard, you also have the option of using it as a flyer and simply handing it out to people in the street or in your actual store.

Direct mail campaign post cardsWhen you design your postcard for print, you will want to consider a few important factors. The first is content. Clearly, you will have an objective for printing the postcard, whether that is to advertise a grand opening, a sale, a community initiative, or a political campaign. But don’t miss the opportunity to bridge the gap between your company or institution’s physical and “virtual” presence. All that means is that you should be sure to include your company’s URL and Twitter and Facebook links on your postcard. And if you don’t have any of these things in place yet, it’s probably a good idea to get on that! (If you don’t know how, ask your 12-year-old niece to help you get started.)

The next thing to consider is the design of your card. You want your essential message to hit home, so be sure to decide what that is and then feature it in the most prominent way possible. That might mean adding spot UV accents to add attractive shine to key information. Or it might mean adding foil stamping, a process that bonds gold or silver shiny metallic elements to your postcard to highlight your logo, company name, or maybe that “50% Off!” sale your postcard is designed to advertise. Whatever special accents you choose, keep in mind that the more attractive your card is, the more likely your recipients will give it the time of day. And when consumers are motivated to actually read and examine your postcard, they’ll be more likely to act on the offer it presents.Direct mail flyers
