High-gloss postcards get attention
If you want your postcards to perform, it’s absolutely imperative they stand out from the rest of the mail. High-gloss UV or aqueous coating makes your artwork more brilliant; colors are more vivid, photos are more intense, and text pops off the paper. People like “bright and shiny” things – our eyes are naturally drawn to them – so adding a high-gloss coating to your postcards will ensure they get more attention. And getting attention is the first step toward earning high postcard response rates.
High-gloss postcards feel amazing
A glossy coating on your postcards feels amazing in your customers’ hands: it’s smooth and sleek, almost glassy. Combined with a thick, heavy postcard paper stock, a glossy coating can increase response rates by earning customer trust. In fact, studies have proven customers are more likely to buy when they handle marketing thick, heavy, smooth marketing materials. In addition, the tactile feeling of high-gloss postcards helps you get more attention; when customers are rifling through their mail, the unique texture afforded by high-gloss postcards gives them pause and reason to devote more attention to your message.
High-gloss postcards lend credibility
Postcards printed with glossy coatings look more professional, even high-end. Customers instinctively reason that companies represented by professional-grade marketing materials are trustworthy and more credible. Increased credibility leads to increased sales! The best part is it doesn’t cost much to add a high-gloss coating to your postcards, yet it can help you dramatically increase response rates and your ultimate return on investment.
