    Who do you guys get to design your post cards and door hangers? . I'm not that computer savy to design my own so i would like to find someone to do them for me.

    Cactus Mailing is who I recommend! They do great work, are affordable and offer a lot of great advice!

    They will create the card (with your info and help), get your mailing list (again with your help) and send out the card for $.30-40 each (depends on the quantity sent out).

    PM me if you need any additional info.

    I have attached a thread that was started a while back, as this may help you! About a year ago I spend about a month reading, making phone calls and learning about post cards!

    They do work if done properly, and Cactus will help you in that area!

    I can't say enough good about them myself!

    I will have to check that out. My main need is really design. I have a local company that has been doing my mailout for the past couple of years. Last year i paid $.20 per card mailed and that included the names and addresses i needed. That did not include the printing of the cards which i ordered online from ADCO printing i believe.

    If I remember correctly the postage alone (bulk rate) was like .23 or maybe even more.

    For the mailing list, post card, postage and never having to touch them...I think that .30-40 is very cheap.

    I think I spend a total of $1700 last year or for 5000 post cards which ends up being .34 each.

    I would atleast give them a call! It may be cheaper to have them do everything and you won't even have to touch them!

    Good Luck!

    Can you post a picture of your postcard? That sounds like very good price.

    Thanks

    Well i spent $400 on having 10k postcards printed and then $2000 having them mailed. so thats $2400 fro 10k and for the price you paid that would have cost $3400. So for $1000 i don't mind doing a little extra, but i'll give them a call and see.
