First Class Postcards

How to design a first class postcard—consider these layouts (for the mail panel side)

  • Most room for your message
  • Best positioning for your message
  • Getting the lowest automation rate for a postcard

A mailing that includes at least 500 automation compatible post cards qualifies for automation rates that average $0.25  if the postcard is within the USPS “card” dimensions. These are attractive postage rates compared to the average $0.38 cost for a larger “letter-sized” postcard. And, first-class gets your message out quickly—between one to three days across the US.
