software to generate postcards and address tags for them
« on: May 30, 2006, 10:51:28 AM »
Hi,

I have to mail several ~70 postcards.
No, I'm not planning to spam the hell out of my area :) I just need to recruit schools for experiments with children, and it is always nicer to call them after you have sent them a postcard or letter explaining why you are contacting them.

Do you know of any software that is good for:
(1) design a nice postcard
(2) print ~70 labels automatically (with return address and everything?)

Thanks a lot!

http://www.avery.com do inkjet/laserjet postcards and you can download free MS Word templates to print them. Type in postcards in the search box.

They also have software on the site for printing out their label stock - click on "Templates and Software" there is also an online create and print facility.

(PS There is nothing to stop you buying plain card and printing onto that and cutting out the postcards - you can still use the templates and software)

Failing that use bought blank postcards (stationery shop) set up your printer driver paper size to match the card size and use a Wordprocessor to enter the data.

there is no reason to use labels. buy pre-scored postcard stock and print directly on the front and back.
