Q: Can I personalize
my postcard for each recipient?
A: Yes! At Click2Mail,
we think personalized mail is smart marketing. Our Mailing Online
Editor allows you to easily personalize your postcard by using data
from your mailing list-similar to "mail-merge." This allows
you to integrate information such as a customer name, salutation, account
number, balance due, appointment date, and so on.
Q: How does Click2Mail print
and mail postcards so quickly and so inexpensively?
We use a network of strategically located high-quality printers to print,
prep, and sort large volumes of mail. Our understanding of, and adherence
to strict postal requirements allows your postcard to qualify for some
of the best postage rates. You receive bulk rates with no minimum quantity
and no setup fees.
Q: What does
"full bleed" mean?
A: Bleed is a printing
term that refers to printing that goes beyond the edge of crop marks
indicating where paper should be trimmed. The bleed trim area compensates
for paper, cutting and design inconsistencies. When you choose
the full bleed option on a SpaceSaver or Jumbo postcard your card will
be printed and trimmed to show color to the very edge-no white border.
That can make for a more catching, dramatic postcard that really highlights
more about the full bleed option.

Q: What`s the difference
between uncoated paper and glossy UV-coated paper?
A: The UV coating will
give your postcards a smooth, glossy, protective finish, making the
colors in your images really stand out and eliminating postal scuff
marks. We limit UV coating to full color documents because black
ink absorbs more of the UV coating than the white paper, which causes
an uneven, unpleasant looking final product.
