Business Christmas Cards Are Good Office Etiquette

by Alana V. on October 10, 2013

We all know that sending emails and/or text messages are such time savers but lets face it, they are not very heartfelt. Especially during the holiday season where we are even more appreciative for our relationships with clients and vendor. What better time to show how grateful you are of them? With sending business Christmas cards you show that you and your company are invested in the relationship rather then typing up a couple of sentences and clicking send.

With business Christmas cards you get to hold the actual card that was picked out and read the message that they took the time to hand write just for you. You are not simply staring at a screen that probably has a holiday greeting that was copied to 20 other emails. Unfortunately, we live in a society where manners are hard to come by but rest assure that when sending Christmas cards it will be a win-win situation for both parties. Don’t get lost in the countless holiday emails this season. Showcase your company in a positive light and be remembered for it! When contemplating if you should send out cards think about how many emails you get a day and how many cards you get in a year. It’s an easy choice!

I am a big fan of sending and receiving actual cards… They are solid reminders of those who you care about and those who care about you. A real, meaningful card can be kept propped open on your desk for the rest of your life if you wanted… A digital card just gets lost in your inbox, never to be looked at again.

I cannot imagine any business that wants to keep their customers would ever send an electronic greeting during the holidays. If the budget is too tight to purchase a quality card then don’t send cards, a phone call is free but priceless; as long as there is a personal connection made.

My company sent e-cards a few years ago when the economy was so bad, and I think about half of them got returned to us! Wrong e-mail addresses, blocked by the other companies’ security systems, etc. We looked like we just went silent at holiday time when normally we were one of the first to send out holiday cards by mail. I don’t have to tell you we went back to regular MAILED cards the next year and haven’t looked back.

I must agree that receiving an actual card in the mail means that the company took the time to order the cards, and to put a special message inside. A heartfelt thank you is so much more appreciated than receiving a general text or email. In this day and age when money is tight and businesses are going out of business, personally I would give my business to the company who cares the most to send a card.

“There’s nothing like the real thing”, especially when sending or receiving holiday greetings. It’s quick and easy to look at a computer screen and read a holiday greeting, or to send one, but it is so much more meaningful to get a hand written message in a lovely card. I save mine and enjoy taking them out during the holidays while reminicing as I read the messages and take a walk down memory lane. It’s a good thing.

I can’t believe that companies would even consider sending electronic Christmas wishes. I would be very disappointed if i received any. Nothing compares to receiving an actual card in the mail. It shows you cared enough to take the time and make the effort. It’s too impersonal, not to mention lazy, to type one message and copy dozens of people.
