Advice and answers from the SendOutCards Team

How do I create a campaign?

The SendOutCards campaign system allows you to create, save and send card campaigns quickly, to one or more recipients with ease. A card campaign can consist of as little as one card or as many cards as you’d like send someone. When you utilize the campaign feature you are able to easily send the same card or cards, to a group of contacts in just a few clicks and keep the card saved on the account. The campaign system also allows you to customize the sending settings to schedule cards in advance to go out based on birthday or anniversary information that is saved within your contacts. If you are looking for instructions on sending a campaign, please feel free to also review the campaign sending steps. Or if you are a more visual person, feel free to sit back, relax and watch the campaign creation and sending process in the following tutorial.

Then, click on Continue Draft or the Create Picture Plus Card option to load the card into the card editor.

6. Personalize the card by adding custom text either from the text selection or your own personal handwriting font, add picture, insert a name and don't forget your signature; then click on Continue at the bottom of the page. Many campaign users utilize the Insert Name function to automaticlly insert the name of the contact into the card before printing. You can find more information on that function here: Insert Function Overview.
