Content details


I am looking for a 4x6 postcard with .125 inch bleed. They will all be mailed so one side has to be formated for me to put an address. I will attach the template for that.

I am going to send these to schools trying to get them to get a free sample of their school mascot. The mascot will be of their school mascot in their school colors.

They can go to and I'd like a QR code taking people to this address.

I'm am working on a new site so you can see the look/feel of it to match the post card. I want a "clean" design with good use of white space, but I want it to feel fun. The website test page is:

I'd like my logo to be on the postcard and the ultimate "win" would be people get the postcard, go to the site, and ask for a free sample.

I think it could be fun to do something like have an * by the word free and then at the bottom in 4 point font say *No strings attached - really we mean it.  Absolutely free.
