Terrific discussion about printing postcards, where to look for addresses to build a mailing list, and how often to mail them. The purpose and life of the postcard is explored along with it's ability to plant seeds that may sprout years later. I liked hearing your thoughts about electronic mailing, promoting even if you have an art representative, and using postcards to possibly promote the publication of a book you wrote. So be viable, NEW & FRESH! Thanks Well Terry & Jake Parker.

Although I needed a heavy dose of coffee this morning (not something I normally drink), I found the information within intriguing enough to keep me alert and wanting more. Do Not expect a short quick answer, as there are some personal stories in here as well. But for the price, there is value in what is offered herein. I highly recommend it. It's opened my eyes to possibilities and markets I hadn't known, or even thought to try. Thank you SVS.
