The holiday season is here! With Thanksgiving, Hanukkah, Christmas, and the New Year rapidly approaching, now is the time to order your business holiday cards and start sending them to employees, customers, partners, and other individuals and businesses that are a part of your professional network.
So, let’s take a look at why businesses should send holiday cards, tips and ideas for sending holiday cards, and how to write business holiday card greetings, messages, and signatures.
Sending e-holiday cards is not necessarily a bad option, but printed holiday cards are certainly preferred over receiving yet another email. While e-cards are cheaper, easier, and quicker, they just can’t compete with a beautifully printed, tangible, and personalized holiday card.
What you say in your business holiday card is totally up to you! However, you’ll typically want to send thanks and warm wishes for the holiday season in some form. Your business holiday cards should always include a greeting, message, and signature—so let’s take a closer look at ideas for each element of your holiday card.
