Look! A See-Through Plastic Post Card

plastic see through direct mail postcardHere's something I've never seen before: a plastic see-through post card.  I liked it as a marketing tool because it really popped out of all the other mail I get. Appropriately, it promotes a $100 discount to a marketing conference in Chicago in July.

The text and graphics are painted onto the oversize 6"x9" card, and the address appears to be laser printed onto the card.  Created by ShipShapes, the "ClearCard™ is a rectangular direct mail piece that captures attention, evokes a response, and sticks around while conventional mail gets tossed in a recycle bin or trash can."

"ClearCards are unconventional post card mailers that not only get noticed, they influence response, generate word-of-mouth advertising, and encourage recipients to hold onto them. In test campaigns, ClearCards consistently outperform control pieces with 3 to 10 time higher measures."

A marketing postcard is a great advertising tool. You just have to make it more interesting to get the attention of your prospects.
