As the summer is beginning to wind down, thoughts turn towards the upcoming holiday season which will be here before you know it. With a tight economy and budgetary concerns, it is time to determine just what to send to valued friends, clients and business associates this year. Is the customary fruit basket or meat and cheese tray truly appreciated? What can the budget bear that will be welcomed as well as valued and project the professional demeanor every business strives to achieve
The holidays are the perfect time to thank those who have helped your business be successful and to encourage employee enthusiasm for the year ahead. To do this affordably and professionally, much thought and consideration is needed when determining just how much to spend to justify the return on investment you so hope to achieve.
One such idea is a unique and distinctive greeting card that will convey your wish for the season in professional style. Holiday cards are affordable and can be much more personal than gift baskets sent by a third party. A professionally printed and personalized card should still include a handwritten note and signature if possible, especially for your most valued clients.
Seasonal greetings have become much more than simple printed cards in plain white envelopes. They now come embossed, stamped with foil, in layered pieces and tied with a bow. Custom printing allows you to say exactly what you want to and personalization is perfect for a professional look that says your business is doing well and will continue to do so in the years ahead.
If you don’t feel a greeting card is quite enough, consider including a gift card with it. Your personalized message can announce the enclosed gift card and your thoughtful gesture will be remembered well into the holiday season. A well chosen gift card will allow the recipient to select something special that everyone can enjoy.
Order cards in bulk for additional savings and do it early so that they can all be addressed and ready to mail before the frantic end of year activities begin. With a bit of preparation now, you will be in a better position to actually enjoy the holiday season.
Attractive, functional, affordable and personal, holiday greeting cards are the answer to all of your seasonal gifting plans this year.
