Half Price Postcard Sale for EDDM Mail Out



Cheap postcards and designIf you are looking to do a mail out that is budget friendly, think about participating in the Every Door Direct Mail (EDDM) program through the USPS. All you do is pick the routes you want to target, pay for the postage at only $0.145 each, and bring your postcards to your local post office. You don’t have to address the postcards or apply postage. Plus, you can use oversized postcards. In fact, you have to use larger than the standard 4″ x 6″ postcards.

Now through September 28th, you can get postcards 50% off the regular prices. That is an incredible savings that you don’t want to miss. If you need postcard design, no problem, Perfect Imprints can help you. We have a team of expert graphic designers ready to design that perfect and effective marketing piece for your mail out.

Just FYI, minimum size for the EDDM program is 6.125″ high or 10.5″ wide and maximum size is 12″ high and 15″ wide. What a bargain to mail postcards for only $0.145 each (compared to standard 4″ x 6″ postcard postage at $0.32 each). That’s a postage savings of over 50%. Combine that with 50% off postcard pricing for the month of September and you are saving over 100%. Wouldn’t that be free? Unfortunately, the math doesn’t quite work like that; however, I’m sure you can see the huge savings!

We Print Everything But Money, Or Do We?


I always tell potential clients that we print everything but money. We leave that to the government, and in recent times, they just print it whenever they want it.

However, I got to thinking about this statement, and it turns out we actually do print money. Now I’m not talking about counterfeiting, because we certainly don’t do that. We do print funny money. Below are a few examples of some funny money that we can print.

Now there are a lot of applications with funny money for any business. It’s not just for playing Monopoly or Life. You can use these as coupons towards purchases from your business. You could use these as gift certificates. You could use these as money towards rewards for employees or clients. Some companies put their owner or CEO picture in their funny money or their company logo. These are memorable items to receive because they have value and “value” is one of the most important aspects of any promotion. What’s in it for the client? Well, saving money is what’s in it for them, and I don’t know many people who don’t like to save money.

Gift Certificate

Boring Gift Certificate

So, are you ready to spruce up your boring old gift certificates? You know the ones I’m talking about. Just look to the right and I’ll refresh your memory. Now if your clients had a gift certificate like the one on the right posted on their refrigerator versus a funny money gift certificate like seen above, which one is more fun and stands out the most? I think the funny money option would win out every time. Be fun; be creative, and stick out from the crowd. Your eye will always be attracted to money, even if it’s fake money.

At Perfect Imprints, we can custom design your very own unique money design and transform into a gift certificate, coupon, or reward. Just give us a call at 1-800-773-9472 and we will work for you to get a little more recognition for your business.

Comparing Apples to Apples With Your Marketing


When marketing your company, there are literally thousands of concepts, products, and mediums you can use. There is video, web marketing, full color printing, promotional products, billboards and other signage, text message marketing, and email marketing. With each of these marketing mediums, there are thousands of companies that offer the services, however, not all of them are equals. You can’t compare apples to oranges.

Let’s take promotional product distributors, for example. There are thousands of distributors who all have access to the same promo items as every other distributor. We all deal with the same factories, of which there are around 4000. However, that doesn’t make us all equals. The majority of distributors just “dabble” in promotional items for extra money. Because many of these distributors only do this on a part-time basis, their knowledge is limited. Our company, Perfect Imprints has been doing this full-time for over 12 years and our employees are highly trained in marketing tactics, graphic design, and promotional products application for business and marketing. We regularly attend educational seminars, read trade journals, stay current with the most popular trends, and most importantly have learned from past mistakes. We know what works and what doesn’t work.

To distribute promotional items, there’s a lot more than simply calling the factory and placing an order. There is a lot of setup process and research involved prior to placing the order for the physical products. However, most of these part-time distributorships don’t have the expertise to properly take care of their client’s needs. The most important step is the graphic design aspect. The graphic design is foundation of the whole process. With a poor design, the printed product will be poor, as will the outcome of your marketing campaign. On the hand, though, a nice, clean and effective layout will sell your brand and help your overall campaign become more successful.

Another important step is to choose the right product for your purpose. Pictures can be deceiving in catalogs and on websites. Not to mention, there are sometimes hundreds or even thousands of very similar items, so the specific item you are ordering may not be the suitable product for your intended purpose. This is where an experienced and knowledgeable distributor comes in handy. Because of our years of experience, we are familiar with thousands of products and have been exposed to even more than that. We know when certain products won’t be a good fit for your campaign and we can make recommendations for other products. If we don’t know the answer, we know how to do the thorough research to get the answers for you.

As an experienced distributor, we have already made the mistakes of using factories with inferior products or inferior printing processes. We have a database of around a million products. Many are poor design or cheap in quality and we know which ones to avoid. We have filtered our databases to only allow for top notch quality products and reputable factories. We have developed great relationships with many great factories in which we can get special privileges and pricing that other distributors can’t get. That, of course, passes benefit to our clients.

As you can see, our experience translates to success for your marketing campaigns. We don’t treat any order as “just an order.” We treat all of our orders as investments for our clients. We thrive on making your promotional investments a success. Because, after all, when you are successful, you’ll come back to us over and over again. Together, we make each other successful.

Quick Way To Boost Your Business


Are you looking for a quick way to boost your business and generate some phone calls or website visits? How about a car magnet? We have full color car magnets so we can get crazy with your design and really attract some attention to your driving billboard. I always recommend magnets to be placed on each side of your vehicle as well as on the back if there is room. With the car magnets being on the sides and the back, that covers you while at traffic lights, which is when they will get the most attention. After all, we really don’t want the person driving next to us with his eyes on our magnet while driving. We don’t but it will happen with our vibrantly colored graphics printed on the magnets of virtually any size. You just measure you areas and we can create a custom size for you within 1″ increments. We offer both a high gloss finish as well as a matte finish. Here’s a picture of our own car magnets:

You better believe that this will turn some heads. But please, turn them when you are stopped. Thank you.

I do want to mention a few tips on caring for your vehicle and your vehicle magnets.

  • Remove the car magnets often. Especially important with dark color vehicles and in hot climates.
  • When the magnets are removed, always store flat.
  • Never roll the magnet up while in storage.
  • If storing more than 1 magnet together, be sure to not put the magnet surfaces facing each other.
  • Only apply to clean surfaces on your vehicle.
  • Make sure the vehicle surface is dry before applying.
  • Be sure that all air pockets are out of the magnet when applied to prevent the magnet from falling off due to the wind from driving. The magnet should be completely flat against the surface.
  • Wait at least 2-3 days after applying a surface wax to vehicle before reapplying the magnets.
  • Never pull the magnet against the surface of your vehicle. Always lift directly away from the surface.
  • If a vehicle is newly painted, wait at least 90 days for the paint to completely cure before applying the magnet.
  • Routinely wipe the magnet down on both sides with a soft damp cloth to prolong the life span of the magnet.
  • Remove the magnets before entering automatic car washes (Do I really need to mention this? Yes. Believe me I do. You know who you are)
  • I recommend removing the magnets if temperatures reach 100° F or more.
  • It’s best to remove the magnet if traveling at high speeds for a long time.
Here are a few recommendations about what to print on general Car Magnets:
  • Your logo and/or business name.
  • Your phone number in large font.
  • Your website.
  • Very brief overview of products or services offered.
Of course if you want to advertise an entry level, budget friendly price on a specific service, just put the name of the service, price (very large) and a phone number. With card magnets, you don’t want to put too much information because you want people to be able to read it at a glance. With less information, you can make your contact information larger. So go ahead and give us a call today to get your full color car magnets.
