Why You Need RIP Cards for Your Practice
We, at OrthoPrintSource.com, can assist you in creating a design and message that will give you a competitive edge in the orthodontic field. When it comes to direct mail, you cannot afford not to use RIP cards for your practice.
Popular Uses for Orthodontic RIP Cards
Some of the popular uses for perforated RIP cards include the following:
- Featuring orthodontic services
- Promoting special events
- Offering discounts
- Providing event tickets
- Distributing raffle tickets
- Offering contact information
- Providing appointment cards
Aligning and Formatting Your Rip Card Design
If you choose a postcard, flyer, or brochure that features a perforated card, the RIP card portion is normally presented on the side or in a corner. We, at OrthoPrintShop.com, can work with you to ensure that both your advertising and card are nicely aligned.
Adding Your Business Card
If you are featuring your business card as a RIP card on a postcard, the postcard will present your message along with an eye-catching photograph. Your contact details are presented on the perforated business-sized card.
Checking the Response Rate
Check your response rate by including a RIP card on a flyer. If your business cards disappear, you know you are receiving positive feedback.
Are You Holding an Event at Your Office?
When holding an event, it is best to choose a door hanger or flyer and tear away card. The RIP card should feature details about the event, such as the time, contact information, and location.
Use a RIP Card and Postcard for Appointment Setting
Many orthodontists use RIP cards for appointment setting. In this case, it is best to use a combination postcard and RIP card. Use the postcard as a reminder and the appointment card for recording the date and time of the appointment.
Offer Discounts and Coupons
You can also use a RIP card and postcard combination for discounts and coupons. Use the postcard to highlight your services and the RIP card for the discount or coupon.
Another postcard and RIP card combo involves the use of membership cards. Use membership cards as reward cards to incentivize loyal patients. The membership or tear-off card, for example, may be used for special discounts or an orthodontic accessory.
Two-in-one Promotional Tools
Just consider RIP cards as two-in-one promotional tools for your practice. The RIP cards we provide offer a clear perforation – one that can be easily torn off by prospects and patients.
Expand Your Professional Reach in a Unique Way
When the RIP card is removed, the other part of the product can still be used to highlight your services or promote an event or discount. As a result, RIP cards can be used in one of a variety of creative ways. If you want to expand your professional reach in a unique way, a tear card that is attached to a brochure, flyer, or postcard will give you the edge you need.
