    This is a postcard to be sent out with 2-3 others to follow. I made this postcard to give the customer an idea of who we are. I plan on sending the same people 2-3 other postcards offering specific services. What do you guys think?

    .....and the back.

    I decided to go with black and white for cost purposes. Do you think it takes a lot away from the postcard being just black and white on the back. I figured the front had enough for the senses.

    Looks really nice, is the front glossy? Also I really like your logo.

    Make sure you keep the design to the set areas the post office dictates. If you go outside those boundaries, the cards may not get delivered. Especially the bottom area where they print the bar code. They have a template on the usps website.

    Other than that, very nice. How many will you be sending, and to whom?

    Hey Derek, that looks like an A1 class act postcard there. I am not sure I like the half tree on the back, but that's ok. The front is what's going to grab their attention. Let's shoot for lunch Saturday....looks like I am going to be busy this week. Bring that postcard with ya. I will be in touch.

    This post card is going to be sent out about the middle of february. Kind of an introduction of sorts, but I would like to get some people thinking about their landscape. Any suggestions on how I could do that? I was thinking about adding something like .....wish it was warm out? Give us a call we can help give you some vision for this spring. Something like that...just better wording.
