I have posted about business cards before

here Business Cards and Getting Them Printed , and
here DIY and Recycled Business Cards.

But what about a postcard? Last week Eco Etsy posted
Business Tips: Creative Marketing & Promotion.

Price Tags - Upcycled Vintage Postcards
SurpriseBoxSupply

One of the tips was to:
"Create a Killer Ad & print it on small recycled postcards."
It was suggested to mail postcards to a target market and to ask
business establishments if you can leave them on their counters.



MOO suggests using postcards as a business flyer or even a
gift certificate. Many artists seem to have a postcard
with a bio on the back to present to the public at fairs & shows.

Why not use a postcard as a business card?
You could print the same information as you do on your
business cards and use the postcards for everything:
thank you cards, flyers, coupons, gift certificates.

How do you use postcards?

Hi, Trashion Team member Tubby Tabby here. Recycled postcards are a great idea. I also sell something similar in my design shop, it is not recycled but is printed with soy inks and a wonderful similar marketing tool. Here is the link if anyone is interested in checking them out. http://www.etsy.com/listing/52019048/rip-business-cards-full-color-quantity

A business card is a way of connecting or guiding so if there is map or picture of the center include the address that would be best.
