It’s Not Too Early to Start Thinking About Your Business’s Holiday Card
It’s hard to believe, but Thanksgiving will be here before we know it. Don’t wait until Turkey Day rolls around to start thinking about your company’s holiday card. Plan ahead and save money—and your sanity.
Though it may seem a bit old-fashioned, sending holiday cards to clients can benefit Twin Cities companies. Receiving a card with a thoughtful message and hand-written greeting impresses clients and vendors and can help build those relationships. Companies can use holiday cards internally, too. Recognize a top sales representative’s efforts with a handwritten message or send a personalized note to the whole team.
Holiday Card Tips
Ordering holiday cards early in the season helps you get them out on time. It also helps you avoid a mad scramble to get the cards signed. As you’re considering a design and message, try to keep it non-specific. Remember that your recipients practice a variety of religions, so a Christmas or Hanukkah-specific card may not be appropriate. The possible exception to this rule is if your company or organization is religiously affiliated.
Thinking about your business’s holiday card before Thanksgiving also gives you ample time to think about the design and message of your card. A professional printer can help you create a vibrant design that incorporates your company’s colors, logo, and even its motto. Avoid skimping on paper quality. A flimsy card immediately looks cheap to recipients. Instead, invest in a heavier, higher-quality paper.
You may also consider adding an insert to your greeting cards. While it may be wise to avoid advertising or promotions in your holiday card, it may be appropriate to include a recap of company milestones or events from the past year. Clients, vendors, and employees may find this information interesting.
