this is an example of Martinelli Eyecare's full color postcard design

Full Color Postcard Design

This full-color postcard design was developed for Martinelli Eye & Laser Center. They mentioned that many eyewear orders sit in-store for weeks, even months, after arriving. The reminder card they were sending was not the most attractive or intriguing, and also smaller than most other mail pieces. This could cause it to be easily lost in the shuffle of daily mail.

Martinelli Full Color Postcard Design

We decided on a full-color postcard design that would peak the receiver’s interest. The unique imagery and humorous headline are meant to catch the receiver’s attention and get a laugh; associating a positive interaction with the Martinelli brand. This would also increase response times for eyewear pick-ups. Printed on a thick, glossy 16 pt. cover stock with UV coating, these reminders were affordable, effective and attractive.

The purpose of this brochure was to explain how the Special Investigations Unit was a benefit to their clients. We recycled content from an old brochure and carefully selected clipart that fit their brand colors. We chose a thick and glossy 130# stock which worked perfectly for standing on tables at trade shows. Furthermore, they were sent to leads from the salespeople.

this is an example of Martinelli Eye and Laser's direct mail postcard

Direct Mail Postcards

These direct mail postcards were designed to promote a new vision plan to the eye clinic’s existing client base.

First, we separated their database into “male vs. female” and used gender-specific designs to generate maximum response. We then used a common two-color backer for cost-efficiency in production costs. The customer requested the large red boxes to stop receivers in their tracks after flipping the card over.

Printed in quantities of 10,000 per version, we then fulfilled a portion of the list each month. The 11.5″x6″ size helped them stick out and above from other mailing pieces found in the mailbox. To promote their website and cater to smartphone users we added a QR code linked to the home page. Printed on a high quality 130# gloss cover stock, these full-color direct mail postcards are perfect for any promotion!

This is an example of a a full color mailing insert

Mailing Insert

This full color mailing insert was designed for a commercial printing company looking to promote their new digital printing equipment. These were inserted into invoices and statements before being mailed to clients, as well as presentation folders for leads.

Full Color Mailing Insert

Our design revolved around the “CMYK” colors used in digital printing. The splash concept was developed by our dream team as we wanted receivers to focus on the pricing advantages of digital printing. These were printed on a high-quality 130# gloss cover stock. As a result, the CMYK color scheme really jumped off the page!

These increased the ROI of our client’s postage costs (invoices and statements) while building awareness to the new digital printing capabilities. The $50 incentive increased their traditional response rates and generated immediate digital printing sales to keep their new digital machine running. A creative design and clear call to action can be the two most important elements of any mail piece. In addition, a size that will get noticed over regular mail pieces.
