Postcards with envelopes

Does anyone know if its more postage if you put a postcard in an envelope made for postcards?

I'm thinking of doing an anniversary sale this month and considering doing a mailing but thought it looks nicer in an envelope than just a plain SALE postcard.

Yes, it'd cost the same as a letter. The upside is that it'd get sent first-class where postcards are sent third-class or something like that and take longer.

ahh good to know! I was trying to be 'frugal' with postage but I want them to actually reach the people and thought I had the best shot with first class. The goal is to make sales, not spend all my profits in postage to those stingy people who don't offer up their email. LOL

Another thought about postcards in envelopes: they don't get lost as easily. It's worth a few cents more to make sure that they are received. Besides, they are more likely to be noticed than when they are mixed up with junk mail.

Thank you Nancy! If I'm going to spend the money for full 1st class mail then I might as well do a flyer and send a mini catalog. Something I just may consider!

I think you should just send the postcards. When I get a postcard, I look at it right away... and if it's something I'm interested in, I put it on the refrigerator.
