Business Christmas Cards, February and a Groundhog Named Punxsutawney Phil

by Henry L. on February 2, 2012

One doesn’t normally think about business Christmas cards in February. February brings visions of snowflakes and candy hearts for Valentine’s Day. However, the mild temperatures are making the predictions of one certain Pennsylvania groundhog, Punxsutawney Phil, seem silly. Six more weeks of winter? If it continues like this, everyone will welcome it!

So with a prediction of six more weeks of winter, it turns my mind to Christmas cards in February. There are many reasons to order your cards early. One of the best reasons is that because this is the off season, cards are offered at greater discounts. This is a winning situation for both business and customer. Employers are able to keep employees productive and customers reap the benefit of lower costs. Ordering early also gives you the best selection of cards. When waiting until peak season to order, you run the risk of that special card being sold out. During the holiday season we usually feel rushed with way too many things to do. Before you know it, you are in complete panic mode and wondering how you are going to get everything done.

While everyone else is scrambling in November to get their Christmas card order in, you can devote your time to other important matters. Just don’t forget where you stored your cards!

While I agree with the premise of ordering cards early, I think ordering Christmas cards in February is a tad too early! Obviously, Valentines day should be ordered in January, nothing can spoil a Valentines day like a late card or present!

I agree, why wait until crunch time to order cards at higher prices. Taking advantage of great sale prices is always a good thing.

This I’m a bit torn about, what if you buy the card early and there is a design you like better later in the year? I’m not sure what I would do, I guess if there is a really good deal in February I would by the card.
