You’ve collected your friends’ and family’s mailing addresses for your free address book and now you’re ready to get even more organized. You wanted a better way to organize your address book and we listened! The new groups feature is here and it’s especially handy if you’re planning your wedding or any event like a baby shower. If you’re using Postable to organize your business addresses, using groups can help you cluster clients into specific categories. The new groups feature lets you gather contacts from your address book into categories so they’re easy to find when you’re writing thank you cards to your bridal party or sending baby shower invites to your closest lady friends.

Using your groups when sending cards

You can also send everyone in a specific group the same flat card by using the green ‘Options’ button and selecting that group.
