3 tips for writing holiday card messages

1. Stay true to your company’s voice

Though it’s perfectly acceptable to get a little more lyrical during this time of year, if a more poetic message doesn’t feel like the right fit for your business, don’t force it. If, for example, you’re typically more straightforward when communicating with customers or clients, bring that voice to your cards.

2. Speak from the heart

When choosing what to write inside business holiday cards, express your warm feelings. Let your customers know that you appreciate them and how important their support is to you and your business.

3. Know your audience

The way that you address customers will likely be different than the way you address associates or employees. Consider the recipient before you sit down to write.

Sending out holiday cards is a great way to show that your business cares and strengthen the relationship you have with vendors, customers, staff or clients. Use the above tips and greetings, and you’ll have your Thanksgiving cards, Christmas cards and the rest of your holiday messages written in no time.
