I don’t get many anymore, and it’s not because I’m so great, I just changed how I ask editors to respond.
Instead of including a SASE for them to send me back all of my cartoons in, I ask that they recycle whatever they don’t want, and that they check a box on a much more postage efficient postcard.
True, I end up printing a lot of cartoons when I send out paks, but I don’t have to worry about storing and organizing a lot of paper, and I cut my postage costs almost in half. Nice!
I’ve included the postcard front and back in the rejections set. Enjoy!
