Q. Why should I use postcards? My computer program automatically generates recall letters.
A. You can still utilise your computer software to automatically generate your recalls. But instead of having it print  boring letters (which may or may not get noticed), you simply use the option to print mailing labels instead. Then all you need do is stick the label on the card and send it on its way. No need to fold letters or stuff envelopes. You’ll actually save on valuable time, printer cartridges and envelopes. More importantly, you will discover our postcards generate a higher rate of response than letters for the reasons explained here.
