Postcards. You know, those things you see on the spinners at gas stations and theme parks across the country with cheesy messages with equally cheesy graphics? Well, you know these are not just for telling people where you are, there are also a variety of things you can be using them for:
– Invites to a special party
– Information about an art gallery event
– Telling people that your new business just opened up with a coupon clipping on it
– Sending out an invite to your sermon at your church
– and the list can go on and on!

In real life, everyone’s mailbox is loaded with boring white envelopes and a grocery store flyer that isn’t very well laid out. Now, those who know this, they will try to make a design that will POP OUT from the rest and when you have several people/companies who do this. This creates a battlefield inside the mailbox and it’s a fight for your eyes.
So with that being said, it’s imperative that you come up with something that grabs the attention of someones eye in less than a second. No joke. If it doesn’t look visually enticing, someone’s just going to toss it in the trash. So before you do anything, be VERY specific to who you will be marketing to. The more the design is catered to them, the more responses you will get from your market!
Now a cleverly designed and well thought out postcard will definitely get attention in the mailbox. If you’re not sure what a good design looks like, try grabbing some magazines and looking at the advertisements, browse stock photo websites such as http://www.istockphoto.com and check out their designs and try to come up with something. Just try to get some inspiration.
