    Hey, I am getting ready to do a direct mailing for this winter and spring...

    I have decided on going with mailing postcards... regular size...

    So far I have the picture side set... But am not sure what exactly to write on the flip side. Here is what I have so far...

    I think that sounds okay.

    I just do mine on 8.5X11 paper, fold it once, and staple it. I walk every day, and put them in mailboxes every morning.

    It works great. Costs nearly nothing.

    The Post Office in my area will fine you if you put them in Mailboxes. Use the paperbox or slip them between the flag and mailbox if you don't want to technically be violating the law. I think it's one of those laws I'd like to have applied to everyone but me. :)
