    Thanks for the numbers Barrett... I can see I have much improvement for advertising. I don't really think I am late on my fliers but I did not plan the greatest. This is only my third year in business and my first for advertising. I knew something was off with the overall costs for my postcards. I was around 80 cents per card with postage included. I just sucked it up and got a couple hundred out there. Now I have the next round of 500 sitting in front of me. To bypass some of the costs, I will be going door hanging in the smaller property neighborhoods.

    When you send post cards out really depends on what part of the country you are in as well as the services you offer.

Let me know if you want pricing for other quantities. You can also add our Stick feature which works like a postcard magnet would only it will stick to stainless steal or plastic refrigerators - add $0.015 each.
