Project overview: This is a 9 X 12 jumbo postcard that will be printed digitally (300 dpi) and then mailed through the US Postal Service as an Every Door Direct Mail (EDDM) piece. The postcard will contain from 12 to 16 individual ads. We are targeting small local businesses who offer home and garden services such as kitchen remodeling, landscaping, flooring, awnings, hardscaping, driveways, roofing, siding, painting, etc. Anything to do with home remodeling or home and garden maintenance.
There are two parts to this project.
Part 1 is to build a 9 X 12 postcard template to be used for digital printing (300 dpi) of future projects. This entails taking the front (attached) and a back template and making a similar template so that you can later add in the different advertisers ads. I would like to attach a sample of a 9 X 12 postcard mailer that is similar to what we are doing to give you a better idea but the upwork system won't allow more than one attachment. Here is a link where you can see lots of images of the 9 X 12: https://www.google.com/search?q=9+x12+postcard&tbm=isch&imgil=Hf1uQlmZx1jsfM%253A%253BG_uech8QKVayzM%253Bhttp%25253A%25252F%25252Fnylocalclipper.com%25252F&source=iu&pf=m&fir=Hf1uQlmZx1jsfM%253A%252CG_uech8QKVayzM%252C_&biw=1344&bih=684&ved=0ahUKEwiq2eaj2-bKAhVJXRQKHUedAzMQyjcIKA&ei=wMa3Vqr5Kcm6Uce6jpgD
The design of the template should have a cream colored background (not burgundy like the supplied template).
The bleed on the 9 X 12 postcard (not the ads below) is 1/8 inch and the safe text area is 1/8 inch.
Part 2 involves creating individual ads for each advertiser. There could be up to 16 different ads on the postcard with 8 on the front and 8 on the back. The size of each ad will vary as per the sample template attached.
Most individual ads will include a logo (supplied), an image or two (also supplied unless you have some great images we can use) and some text about the company and one or two offers. The image can take up the entire ad space if it works for the design and you can then reverse out the text.
The offers will be inserted in the ad with dotted lines around them to encourage people to cut them out and use them.
Part 2 of this project (creating up to 16 ads for the postcard) will happen at least 4 times a year. It may grow into many more than that once we get established. For one project we will send over one or two ads to be created at a time.
You will send them back as you get them done which must happen within three or four days from when you get them.
We would like a price to do each individual ad and a price to assemble them into the template which will be pre-built by you.
Please let me know if you have any questiosns.
