We question whether, at an average of $92 per click, Google Adwords is the most cost effective method to advertise to sell anything! Including postage and printing, you could send out $10 vouchers, redeemable only through your website, to 9 people for every one person you are getting to come through to your website on Adwords. More importantly, you could run a long term search optimisation campaign, including on page content building, every month for every 5 people that click on your ad.
