Over the years, we have developed an effective four point design strategy for how to design a postcard.
When prospects get their mail, they sort through it in a matter of seconds. We call those first few seconds
“the glance test” and whether you pass or fail will determine the success of your mailing.

Use a Headline and/or an Image to
Communicate 
what the postcard is about.

This is not the time to be subtle, artsy or clever. The reader needs to be able to “get it”
without having to “think about it”. Go big and go bold.
