  • Four offers for discounted salon services
  • Professional photos of hair models to entice the recipient to respond to the postcard
  • Fun photos that are catching to the eye on the front of the card

Fantastic Sams of Greenwood mailed 60,000 postcards to a Every Door Direct Mail mailing list that targeted specific zip codes. Each mailing included between 9,000 and 16,500 postcards and they were mailed out every other month.
