What type of paper are the postcards printed on?
When you choose the "Customize Online" or "Customize for Me" options with mailing services your postcards are printed on 100 lb Gloss Cover that is coated on both sides. If you are printing postcards with printing only on one side, your postcards will be printed on 10 pt paper that is only coated on one side. This allows you to print on the blank side using a laser printer or copier and the ink will not smear.

How many postcards should I send?
The answer really depends on your desired results (and budget). Generally speaking, .5% is the typical return on mailed postcards. So if you sent out 10,000 postcards, you could expect to see 50 visitors over a period of a few weeks. Many things can impact these numbers of course - like your design, messaging, season, timing, and so on. Our Outreach Specialists can help you put the details together to get the best results! Call us with questions at 800.991.6011.

When should my postcard arrive in homes?
The goal is always to be close enough to the event to be remembered, but also far enough away to give recipients time to plan. Typically for a church launch or new message/series invitation you should aim to reach homes 5-9 days out. Bigger events, such as Christmas, Easter, and VBS, can have more time. We can work with you to make the best plan, don’t hesitate to call one of our Outreach Specialists at 800.991.6011.

How can I see more visitors at my church?
While direct mail is still the best way to reach the most people in your community, there are other options, too. To reach people online, you can pair your postcard mailing with a social media ad campaign on Facebook and Instagram. The new Outreach Everywhereservice combines a physical mailing with a digital ad for your event - doubling your impact! People in your community receive your postcard invitation and then see your digital ads online on average three times, increasing your response rate!

How can I get a non-profit postage rate?

Call one of our Outreach Specialists at 800 911-6011 and they can assist you in checking the database to see if you qualify.
