When picking holiday cards for your associates, do not of it as a chore. Take your time and pick a holiday card that connects with the recipients and brings a smile to their face. Here are some etiquette tips to help you pick a holiday card for your associate that are effective and instrumental –
It is quite easy to send holiday cards with a click of the mouse in today’s digital age. But, it is non-personal and even robotic where there is no personal appeal during the process. Digital cards or retail cards might be convenient, but they are not heartfelt. To stand out from the pack and show how much you value business relationships, make an effort and pick a handmade holiday card that leaves a lasting impression. Instead of pre-designed and pre-printed holiday cards with your company name and logo, buy handmade holiday cards and add a personalized greeting that they will treasure for many years to come.
Pick a Quality Card
The handmade cards reflect your creative side as well as your thoughtfulness. The recipient will feel valued when they know you went to the trouble of finding and pick a quality card before mailing it to them. Many online store cards are labelled as ‘handmade cards,’ but they are not actually handmade. It is important to look for businesses that handcraft each of their cards, just like we do Katherine’s Crafts. You can even have a personal greeting added to the card for that personal touch. And, we go the extra mile to ensure our handmade cards represent your emotions beautifully.
Do Not Wait
Show your respect by ordering your holiday cards much earlier, or your associates might think they are an afterthought. Instead of waiting till the last minute, make sure to order your holiday cards well in advance. It will allow you to have plenty of time to add your messages, recipient addresses and send them out without having to rush. The holiday cards are ideally sent by the first week of December but no later than the second week. If you don’t, the recipients might not receive the holiday card on time. So, start preparing early if you intend to send out holiday cards to your associates without keeping them for the last minute.
