Need A Headline For A Deck Postcard.


I do alot of direct mail advertising. Most of it is for what the bulk of my work is for: Design Build Landscaping. We do alot of decks, and I want to do a card devoted just to decks.

Besides the typical "Plan your spring deck project now" headline, does anyone have any good ideas for headlines?

Thanks in advance!

Here is one we're trying out... Not too sure I like it, we'll see if it brings in calls.
It went to an area that has a LOT of rotting wood decks.

When I did allot of decks in the early 80s, we ran allot of flyer's and we had a header "-----------call us to get decked" add any wording to that... It was a big thing and everyone loved it.

Size matters.

We're used to handling big decks, so let us handle yours.

Your deck is in good hands.

I like it but your missing two key aspects of a successful mailing, an expirable offer, and a call to action.

The First Rule of Deck Design - It's Not the Size of Your Deck That Counts, It's How You Use It.

Re: Need A Headline For A Deck Postcard.


Although my postcard is geared more for the man, (it's an experiment) most of the time it's the woman who calls me. As funny as a few of these lines are I highly doubt they'd work on a woman.
