Custom Christmas Cards – Good For Business, Good For Friends

by Henry L. on November 19, 2012

Custom Christmas cards are a great way to truly wish others a happy holiday season or a Merry Christmas. We’ve all been to the stores and card shops looking for cards that will be right to send out to others, but the greetings inside are often so generic as to take away from the well-wishing. Customizing the card adds that touch that shares the holiday warmth without the necessity of settling with “the thought that counts.”

In the wealth of ways that we interact with others – be it co-workers, co-members of organizations, or neighbors – personalized holiday cards allow the flexibility to express ourselves in ways that generic cards cannot. It’s the expression of one’s self that comes through to the recipient of customized cards.

I just recently received such a card from an employer. It was a lovely card on a high quality dark stock paper. As would be expected from a company that has diverse employees, they sent corporate holiday cards without any sectarian words or design. The greeting and signatures were what made it so personal for me. It was a simple note that brought to the fore my importance as an individual to the company, having the titles and signatures of the executives.

I think the finest card that one can give or receive is one that has been custom made to make an accurate expression of the value of another.

The word custom is an interesting word. Of course there are things you would like to have customized such as christmas cards or that sweet tailored suit you just put down 2 grand for so that you look fresh to death for your interviews. Then there are things that you shouldnt want customized. Lets take headrests in cars for example. Do you really need your name in script on your car headrest? What good does that do for you or anyone in the vehicle. Is it not clear enough already that you own the car that you also have to mark your name on the headrest for all to see. Of course i am sure it comes in handy if someone steals your headrest. Then you have something to go by to track it down. Even then however, i dont think i would go through the effort of customizing my headrest, i would just buy some new ones for 20 dollars at the flea market.

I think taking a moment to think of your friends or clients is always appreciated. A card is a great way to do so.

It is so important to all of us to be recognized as an important member of the company we are working for. Although getting paid for doing a job is important, it is especially rewarding to know that what we do is known and appreciate by someone who is in a higher position. It makes you feel worthwhile and gives you a reason to get up in the morning.

I agree – I think custom greeting cards are better than the ones with the scripted message. Not only are they more impressive they also show that the sender took the time to make the cards special. Customizing makes the whole presentation more formal.

Custom greeting cards show more of your inner personality which adds a special warmth to your greeting cards.

I always spend time picking out the right Christmas cards to send to friends and family beause the card represents me and how much I care about the recipient. Even though I order my cards with personalization, I always add a hand written note

A hand written note in my opinion is the way to go. You know the person went out of their way to think of something for you.
