One thing I do when mailing out postcards is to have my name printed on the front along with the image. That way your name is visually linked with your image and if anyone decides to pin up your postcard they always know who the artist is without having to take it down and flip it over.
Add your name to the front of your postcards.
This is a terrific tip that I didn’t want you to miss. Galleries understand this. They usually have their gallery name on the front–perhaps in combination with the artists’ names. It’s part of their branding that helps you remember them.
Next time you get something in the mail from another artist or gallery, notice the writing that is on the front along with the image. See how the text helps you remember the name of the artist in relation to the work.
You can also put your name on the front of the note cards you print for your own use. Around the border of the image, add something like one of the following.
- A Note from Casey Craig
- Thank You from Casey Craig
- Birthday Wishes from Casey Craig
