Q: Why a postcard?

A: There are many reasons why sending a postcard with Click2Mail makes good sense. Among them:

  • It`s easy. Postcards are the easiest, least complex format to write and design.

  • It`s immediate. Like all products, postcards ordered by 8PM ET are mailed the next business day.

Q: When is the right occasion to mail a postcard?

A: Click2Mail postcards are ideal for sending a concise message that really stands out. Use them for:

  • Sale announcements
  • Special discount offers
  • Appointment reminders
  • Staying top-of-mind
  • Promoting a new product
  • Saying "Thank You"

  • Reaching out to new prospects
  • Building your brand
  • Brief customer surveys

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?

A: 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 your message. Learn more about the full bleed option.

Q: When will my postcard mail?

A: If you have chosen the "Next Day" option in Mailing Online Pro, or are using Mailing Online Classic, place your postcard order before 8 p.m. Eastern Time on a business day, including Saturday, and we will mail your postcards the next business day. If you place your order after 8 p.m., we'll mail your postcards in 2 business days. If you are using Mailing Online Pro and have chosen our 3-day or 7-day option, your order will be printed and taken to the post office within 3 or 7 business days (depending on the option chosen) if your order is placed by 8 p.m. Eastern Time. If your order is placed after 8 p.m. ET, please add one more business day to the time estimate. See production and mailing schedule.

Q: What about a mailing list?

A: Lists are easy to create or we make it easy for you to purchase one online at Any list created in a word processing, spreadsheet, or database program and saved in the CSV, TAB, MDB, XLS, or XLSX file formats is compatible with the Mailing Online system. For instructions, refer to the Mailing Online Knowledgebase or call us at 1-866-665-2787.

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.

Q: Can I get some help?

A: Of course! There are three ways to get help: The Click2Mail Knowledgebase answers most general and how-to questions; a program-specific Help Menu is available after you sign into your account; and our experts are standing by at 1-866-665-2787 Monday-Friday, 9AM to 8PM Eastern Standard Time.
