Business Thanksgiving Cards – The Christmas Cards Alternative

by Henry L. on November 10, 2008

I know you may think I’m crazy, but by the time Labor Day rolls around, all I can think of is Christmas. Christmas shopping! Christmas decorations! Christmas trees! Christmas carolers! And most importantly, Christmas cards! It’s enough to make even the most relaxed of us turn visions of sugarplums into visions of that mean one, Mr. Grinch!

For those of us already mentally making our list and checking it twice, the act of sending business greeting cards is not strictly a Christmas ritual anymore. This is a relief for a number of reasons. First of all, as much as I’d love to make a point to send my best wishes to colleagues and clients, if I wait until December, I’m taking a gamble on whether those business greeting cards will ever make it to the mailbox! Secondly, if I wait until December, my Christmas cards are bound to get lost in the shuffle with all of the other business greeting cards being sent at the same time.

That’s why business Thanksgiving cards are a great alternative. Thanking those you’ve done business with a month before the norm allows your message to stand out when it’s received and allows you to cross one more task off your list before the end of November. It also saves you the trouble of choosing between Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays, or Season’s Greetings for the face of the design on your business greeting cards.

There is plenty to be thankful for as autumn and winter are coming upon us, and one of those things is the option of business Thanksgiving Cards!

I always send out Thanksgiving cards instead of Christmas. I dont have to worry about what style card to choose so as not to offend anyone. It gives me the opportunity to say thank you at such an appropriate time. It’s also a smart business move since my card is displayed the longest!

This is a great idea. I like to order CHRISTMAS cards but since it’s not politically correct I always have to get Holiday or Season’s Greetings. By ordering Thanksgiving cards I would still be serving the same purpose: acknowledging my clients and getting a jump start on the holiday rush. Thanks for the tip :)
