Some companies feel that marketing within a holiday card is tacky and defeats the purpose of wishing clients and associates seasonal goodwill.

Others have found it an effective means of increasing business.

If you do plan to do it, avoid alienating customers by keeping the advertising fun and joyful.

For example a print shop could try:

        “Wishing you a season filled with peace, love and flawless print jobs.”

When you appreciate the efforts of companies with whom you collaborate:

         “We know how hard you work to make your company great. The work will wait. Take some time this season to celebrate!”

When you want to make recipients laugh at the rules of social propriety:

          “We were told business cards must be kept strictly professional, so –
           To: [Your Company]
           From: [Our Company]
           Subject: Holiday Greetings
           Happy holidays.”

When friendly with another company:

          “Wishing your team a festive office atmosphere, a never ending supply of tasty holiday treats, and relaxing time off.”
When you send Christmas cards for your business, you want every aspect to capture the personality of your team and your brand. You don’t have to be serious to be professional. Humor and a casual tone are good. Just don’t take them too far. If you’re not sure how a quip will go over, it’s best to leave it out.
