I was given the chance to place an order with Uprinting to review their product and service. I decided to order a set of 100 5x7 Uprinting postcards with the Mad in Crafts logo, tag line, and contact information. Branded postcards can be very beneficial for your blog or online business.
You can use branded postcards in a variety of ways:
- For Notes inside Giveaway Prizes: I wish I had these cards when I mailed out the Mod Podge Rocks! book to the giveaway winner. It would have looked much nicer to send the winner a congratulatory note on my own cards than a generic note card.
- At Craft Shows: Branded cards like these would look very professional framed and displayed on a craft fair booth.
- With Etsy Items: If you have an online shop, you could stick one of these cards in with each sale you send out. It’s a great way to make sure your customers know about your blog too, and they are less likely to get overlooked than a business card.
- As a Postcard: Mail it out to sponsors, potential advertisers, or readers and your logo and information gets seen by everyone who touches the mail from here to there.
It is incredibly simple to upload your design to Uprinting, and they accept a variety of image files. I used a free online photo editor to properly size my logo for a 5x7 card, and added my contact information. I uploaded the file to Uprinting and hit “Proceed.”
Uprinting gives you an instant online proof. The image might be slightly blurred, but your printed cards won’t be. You can choose either to submit your order directly or to order a PDF proof of your card. If you are creating a detailed card with lots of information, I would suggest getting the PDF. It delays your order a bit, but it is worth it to avoid embarrassing typos on your branded cards.
Then just follow the shipping and purchasing prompts and wait for your cards to arrive.
I ordered my postcards on June 22nd and received them on the 30th. Uprinting offers two-day turn around on their 5x7 postcards. I think the slight delay in my delivery was because I submitted my order in the afternoon on a Friday and it probably didn’t process until Monday.
My order came packaged in a sturdy box, tightly packed with paper. I was impressed with the way Uprinting made sure that my postcards wouldn’t shift and get damaged in the mail.
Overall, I think that ordering branded postcards from Uprinting is a good value if you are looking for a way to make your shop or blog’s brand more visible.
