  • Use a picture of your office or factory.
  • Showcase images of your top-selling merchandise.
  • Make your logo the centerpiece.

Creating A Mailing List

Along with sending your holiday card to customers and prospective customers. Consider adding service providers, contractors and even family members of employees to your list. This is a great way to express thanks for all the hard work they’ve done for your company. When selecting a card, a non-denominational seasons greetings theme works best.

  • Include a surprise in the card. Something that aligns with your business is a plus. For example, if you sell chimineas, consider adding a S’mores recipe. If you work in the healthcare industry, include an article that highlights tips for staying healthy during the holidays.
  • Handwrite the address. This adds a personal touch and also insures your letter doesn’t get shuffled into the junk mail pile.
