Sumo Postcard – 6″ x 11″

The most dominant message in the mailbox can be your Sumo Postcard.

The Sumo Size Postcard is the largest postcard to mail at letter rates and dwarfs everything else in the mailbox. Most of our customers use our Sumo Postcards for direct mail marketing and take advantage of the large size at the lower postage rates. All the studies indicate that the larger size cards get higher response…and these are ginormous.

Armando, Chris, and the team really helped us out. We needed a high-impact piece to really stand out but still mail at the affordable, bulk postage rate. They designed an entire campaign for us with Sumo size mailers. It was the perfect choice to make a strong presence but still keep our budgets intact.
