Photo Postcards

Photo postcards are attractive expressions of technology that is powering more personalized marketing tools. Postcards with dewy fresh natural visuals that capture beautiful moments have little competition among other publicity materials. They infuse a ‘life like’ quality in your message and captivate your audience by conveying ideas which hundreds of words fail to put across. Few things work better than evocative images for driving home your point to the target audience. Emotions represented through powerful pictures rarely lose their impact. Images are compelling and easy to comprehend manifestations of thoughts, feelings and emotions; and are therefore easier to relate to. Using photo postcards for personal and commercial purposes ensures that your cause is firmly ingrained in the audience’s mind through a series of thought-provoking or plain pretty images.

Enhanced technology for quicker and shaper photo postcards

Digital cameras and advanced software applications allow entrepreneurs to create custom photo postcards which are strategically designed to boost sales. An enticingly touched up, sharp and rich visual of your products/services in flattering angles is hard to ignore. The process of developing a film and having it scanned at a conventional print shop is now redundant and has been replaced by a more polished digital technology which allows you to directly upload images from a camera. An established and professional online printer like Postcards.com can then provide easy tools to import these photographs into slick photo postcard templates that are designed to create stunning postcards in minutes.

Sleek, state of the art tools on Postcards.com make it easy for you to place large orders immediately. Apart from volume, every piece comes with the assurance of quality that is not comprised by the low-price.

This gives you more leverage to place repeat orders in the future. You can save finished designs and have complete control over modifying them later.

Give your business and personal occasions the ‘visual’ advantage with photo postcards

Photo postcards are a boon for businesses operating in the food, wedding, travel and fashion sector. Photographers can have a feast with high resolution photo postcards parading pictures from their personal portfolio. Even postcards advertising store sales can go trendy by flaunting attractive pictures of the piece de resistance of the season. You can include an interesting caption like “Will you be the first to lay your hands on our super signature designer wear”? Such forceful questions can bring out the competitive streak in your customers and have them rush to your store.

You can either use a single riveting image that stays with your audience or create a dazzling montage of pictures which reflect a variety of facets of your services. For personal events, save the date postcards that inform invitees about blocking certain days for special occasions are becoming increasing popular. For weddings or engagements- cute photographs of the host couple in their best wedding finery does the magic. Similarly for a birthday party invitation photo postcard-use an image of the birthday boy/girl blowing candles delightfully. A photograph of a couple waltzing against the backdrop of the sunset works well for a silver/golden wedding anniversary celebration.

Other Creative uses of photo postcards

Photo postcards can be used as inexpensive marriage announcement materials or business anniversary invitation cards. Utilize the back of the card to include a small personalized note for the former or a loyalty bonus voucher for the latter. New enterprises can also include a location map at the back of the card. For an 18th birthday celebration, you can prepare a photographic collage capturing each of the 18 years of the birthday boy/girl on the postcard. Create completely customized thank you postcards which bear images of you enjoying the gift of each guest. Photo postcards are also great for announcing achievements of family members or employees. You can send commercial photo postcards to loyal customers after the company accomplishes an important milestone. Thanking customers for the company’s achievements shows gratitude and makes patrons feel a part of your organization, thus fostering greater loyalty. You can use photographs of your team along with a brief yet warm and personally signed note. If you are unable to complete an order on time, send a professional sorry postcard to customers and business associates updating them about the status of the order and mentioning your plan of action for rectifying the situation. Evocative photo postcards that touch a chord with the audience can be used for fund-raising or announcing local charity functions.
