Save the Date Postage
A year-round favorite, Save the Date postage is a special way for any couple to spread the word about their engagement on every card and letter they send. Make postage designs to match your Save the Date announcements and you may see more sales coming in pairs!
Similar to Save the Date postage, wedding postage is another popular option for brides. Create postage templates in which shoppers can use their own wedding photos, and your designs will be a hit among the newly-hitched. In case you forgot, wedding season is upon us, so if you aren't promoting wedding products, get started today!
In addition to graduation announcements and invitations, this year's grads will also be sending thank you cards. Create graduation postage to stick on all their cards and invites, and you may find yourself at the top of the class!
Perfect for weddings and other special occasions, monogram postage is another great option to promote all year long. It's so versatile! Try creating monogram postage with a particular theme (fall wedding or beach wedding, for instance) or make a range of other colorful designs.
The USPS postage rate increase will be big news in the coming weeks, so be sure to prepare your stores now for the rush of shoppers looking for custom postage at the new rates.
