Business Christmas Cards
How to Use Them in Your Business
There are many ways to send a Christmas greeting from your business. Christmas greeting cards are a cost effective way to show appreciation to and build rapport with your customers. You can also use greeting cards to improve morale and loyalty among employees. Sending a greeting card is a small and inexpensive gesture at the end of the year to show gratitude to employees for a job well done.
Sending to Employees
Lots of our customers send a message from the executive or c-suite to all of their employees but Christmas cards work equally well at the division or departmental level. Boost morale and productivity with the small and inexpensive gesture of sending a greeting card. If you are an individual working in a company but ordering for your co-workers as a personal gesture, you can order in bulk instead of buying 10 or 20 cards from Hallmark or Papyrus.
Managers can thank specific teams with our line of teamwork-specific Christmas cards. This is great if you’re completing a big project at the end of the year or if you’d like to thank employees for a job well done this year.
Sales Teams to Prospective Clients
Building rapport with leads can be tough. Christmas cards are a sincere, non-intrusive, and inexpensive way to do so. Greeting cards can help reactivate old leads and build those already in your sales pipeline. You can easily customize any of our designs to work in any sales campaign.
Sending to Current Customers
As a Yearly Greeting
Most of our customers send their Christmas cards as a yearly greeting, thanking them for their patronage and support of the last year. We’ve built our system to make reordering easy if you’re interested in ordering the same design year in and year out. We also create hundreds of new and exclusive designs to make sure your employees and customers don’t receive the same card from different businesses—unless those other businesses are also ordering through CardsDirect!
As a Reminder
Some businesses pair their yearly Christmas thank you to customers with a reminder to visit or shop with them again. Dentists, doctors, auto-dealerships, and many other industries take advantage every year.
Prospecting and Marketing
Some businesses take a step further and use the holiday and Christmas season as a sales opportunity. Rather than sending a basic mailer with some information about your product, why not send a Christmas card to warm that lead before a call?
Keep Costs Low with Postcards
While our traditional folded Christmas cards are inexpensive, they may not make sense for businesses who are trying to keep the cost of their campaign as low as possible. If you’re looking to reduce the cost of your marketing campaign, our Christmas postcards are a great way to do just that. We adapt many of our traditional card designs to postcards so you can still pick from CardsDirect’s large collection of exclusive designs.
We spend lots of time and effort to make our product personalizer, Visual Canvas®, as powerful and easy to use as possible. We’ve created a small graphic to describe what customization options you have with the CardsDirect® product personalizer.
CardsDirect makes adding a company logo to your Christmas cards very easy. Easily upload your logo in any of the following formats: tif, tiff, jpeg, jpg, png, pdf, bmp, gif, eps, svg, and ai. We have hundreds of designs that feature your logo more prominently. We’ve written on our blog about the etiquette of a company logo on a Christmas card.
Adding team signatures is similar to adding a company logo. The two can even be combined. Signatures add a personal element to the card, especially if you are sending cards to lots of people. Imagine sending a Christmas card to all of your current customers. If each of those customers have a representative that they work with at your company, it’s great for them to see a signature for their rep on the Christmas card they receive at the end of the year!
We have several cards that you can add a team photo to. You can find the more professional designshere and the more personal designs here. These cards work well for small teams who have personal relationships with customers. Some companies choose to feature a companywide photo.
Office Building Photos
It’s quite common for businesses to have a photo or an illustration of the office they work in. Customers who visit the office may be familiar with the office and will immediately recognize the business on the Christmas card, depending on how remarkable the office is. Shop our collection of cards that allow for as much room for your photo as possible. Our personalizer makes it easy to upload and apply a photo to any one of our designs. If you don’t want to feature your photo on the front of the card, you can feature it on the inside on the top fold. That way you still have your room for your messaging at the bottom and the top fold—which would have otherwise been blank—has more compelling company personalization.
In order to provide something for everyone, we’ve created sets of themed Christmas cards suitable for any business. You can view all of our themes in the left navigation on this page. We’ve included themes that are most suitable for businesses below.
Business Appropriate Designs
We understand that not all businesses are interested in sending a Christmas message specifically. We have a selection of professional and business appropriate holiday card designs that any business can send without worry of offending customers. It’s also possible that your target demographic doesn’t celebrate Christmas. In that case we have a large collection of non-specific holiday cards on this page as well as a small selection of Hanukkah cards.

From All of Us
These cards are meant to be sent from a team to customers and clients. Maybe you have a sales team or a customer service team that would like to extend a thank you to those customers they completed sales to or worked with during the last year.
All of these designs feature “From All of Us” somewhere on the front of the card

Whether you’ve just finished a large project or you’d like to say thank you for all the hard work in the last year, these are the cards to do the job. Recognize hard work and reward success with a small gesture!
What to Write
Knowing what to write on a personal Christmas card can be tough. Deciding what to write in a Christmas card for a business is even more difficult. We’ve done our best to make this easy by providing many popular verses to choose from.
Text Personalization Options
Before you start thinking about what to write, you should know what the basics are and where you can personalize our cards. Take a look at the image below to see a quick summary of what you can personalize.
Our default recommendation is to personalize your greeting card with one of our pre-selected verses on the inside of the card and a short message and company name below that. We refer to these two areas as the verse (or message) and the personalization. See below for a graphic to illustrate.
More Advanced Personalization
We offer the ability to add text just about anywhere on the card. Depending on the design, you may want to include personalization on the front of the card, the inside top, the inside bottom (this is typically where personalization and a verse goes), or the back of the card. See below for an illustration of what we mean.
Normally, companies include a company name and short salutation, example: “Happy Holidays from The ABC Company”. Companies can differentiate themselves from other companies by putting in just a little more work. We’ve published an article to try and help those companies that go the extra mile.
