People gear up early for the holiday season. Faster than you can say pumpkin spice latte, the jack-o-lanterns are replaced with Christmas lights, and every store-front from here to Timbuktu are featuring Santa Clauses, dreidels, and seasonal colors a-plenty. In my office, it’s pretty much the holiday season year-round; I work at a greeting card store (one of the largest e-commerce greeting card stores in the country). Every year we sell millions of cards to personal customers, small businesses, and Fortune 500 companies; with the majority of our sales centered on holidays. Odds are, you have probably received one of our cards in the mail.
Now it’s crunch time. While most of the world is still living out those last dog days of summer, we are hard at work prepping for the season ahead – and, believe it or not; the holiday orders are already coming in. Businesses are at the front of the line for custom holiday card orders in preparation to greet their customers with good tidings and cheer when the time comes; creating personalized cards to represent their brand and its corresponding market.
