When it comes to creating your postcards, it’s essential that it’s printed by a professional online printing company. Designing the postcard should take some time; be patient so that you don’t create something that gives off the appearance of being unprofessional or disorganized. When creating your postcard, keep in mind it’s important to have your business name in a legible and somewhat larger font so it stands out from the rest of the copy.

If your company has a difficult time creating them, there are options that can help you to create one by using a clean, simple and professional free design template. Try to complement the basics of your business with the postcard’s overall design. If you need assistance, at Primoprint, we offer graphic design services to ensure your postcard will attract potential clients.

For instance, if you own a wedding catering business, you don’t want the postcard to incorporate neon coloring as it may look unprofessional. On the other hand, if you own a daycare, the neon lettering and bright colors may work fine with your business message. Make sure you incorporate the feel of your company and include the business logo colors into the postcard design, as it can add familiarity to your brand.

Creating a postcard should be done uniquely to your own company. Contact your printing professionals if you need further help creating the ideal EDDM® postcard for your business. EDDM® is a fantastic tool for small and local businesses, allowing them to reach potential customers.
