My Favorite Religious Christmas Cards

For my family, we’ve always loved the meaning of Christmas. It is a true celebration of the giving spirit and caring for others. I truly believe that if we continued to hold the spirit of Christmas present in all of our minds, our world would be a much better place. When the time comes to select my Christmas cards to my closest friends and family, I always choose one with a message which resonates with my own family. It’s why I share my wishes for Christmas with Religious Cards.

The Nativity Ornament is such a gorgeous card.  It is almost as if it is in 3D. The red ornament is displayed hanging from a decorated, lighted Christmas tree with a Nativity scene in the center showing the midnight sky above.  The colors are vivid and framed in gold giving the recipient the option to remove the mounted photo to display in a frame.

This Christmas card shows the Peace Symbol of the dove holding an olive branch.  The dove is flying through a stained glass window at Holy Sacrament Church in Paris.  Not only is this card sticking to the religious theme but it is spreading the word of peace.  With the state of the world and our country, there is no better time to spread the wishes of peace.

The Three Wise Men…Definitely making it clear that I am announcing the blessings of the season only with a more modern flair.  They are bringing gifts to the new King through the desert with the bright star leading them.  This is a guiding card with the wishes of a Merry Christmas written on the front.

I am proud to spread well wishes for a Merry Christmas to all with these special one of a kind Religious cards from The Gallery Collection

Why You Should Take Advantage of Recipient Addressing

I love sending out Christmas cards.  You are sending wishes for a happy holiday and a peaceful New Year.  What could be more fun?

You have written your personal message and signed the cards with sincerity.  Next, you stuffed and sealed all your envelopes and Oh no!  It is that time…..time to hand write each of your 200 or more envelopes.  The fun just drained out of the Christmas card merriment.

Take advantage of recipient addressing and this woe will not even enter the equation.  You can have the Gallery Collection print your recipient addresses for you.  All you need to do is submit your addresses in an Excel file and let them do the work.  Life just got much easier.

Not only is there the benefit of making your life easier, but you can have your envelopes imprinted in the same color and font as your return address.  I am all for uniformity.   It looks neat and polished.

Every year with my card order, I need to order 50 extra envelopes.  I tend to make spelling errors or because I am in a rush to get this job done, the envelopes look sloppy.  I end up having to start over on a new envelope. 

Take advantage of recipient addressing in order to ease the stress of the holiday season. 

Choosing The Right Greeting For Your Holiday Cards

We’ve all been there. Fast forward, and it’s early November. The pressure is on because the Holiday season is right around the corner, and you need to pick a Holiday card to send out to your loyal customers! So, you choose a Gallery Collection Christmas Card, but you have yet to choose a greeting. Yikes!

You’re left scrambling because you want to pick the perfect one! After all, the greeting of your holiday card is extremely important. The greeting helps define your company’s wishes for the most important season of the year as well as all your well wishes for the New Year to come!

Luckily, it isn’t time just yet to panic. Let’s breakdown some options to get you ready for when the time truly comes. First, did you want to go with a short and sweet greeting? The “Season’s Greetings and Best Wishes for a Happy New Year” greeting would fit the bill! If you’ve like to say a little more, the Gallery Collection has an entire selection of longer, descriptive greetings that would work in that case too. Ones such as “Wishing You and Your family a wonderful holiday season and a healthy and peaceful New Year.” Are your recipients religious? There are also religious greetings such as “Joy to the World, let Earth receive her king!”

In the end, if you simply can’t find one that fits your needs, you also always have the option to write your own. The important thing is to find the greeting that you feel expresses your company’s morals and holiday wishes

Real Estate Holiday Cards Your Clients Will Appreciate

It’s that time of year again! Christmas songs are on the radio, the brisk wind whips through your hair, and feeling of good tidings and cheer is in the air! It’s also time to send your employees and/or clients their annual Christmas cards! While your Real Estate office is all about finding the perfect place for your clients throughout the year, who says you can’t have silly fun during the holiday season?

If you visit the Gallery Collection, there are plenty of appropriate Real Estate related products including Real Estate Christmas Cards! With many of the Christmas Cards, you’ll be able to place your company’s name on the front of this card while also showing your love for Homes that are “for sale!” Choose from a number of available designs. Whichever card you choose, be it serious or silly, it’ll be sure to bring tidings of good cheer to the recipient of the Christmas card!

Cards Made Specifically For Your Business

If it never came to your attention, the Gallery Collection offers industry specific holiday cards. There are quite a few industry categories available. There are construction, dental, doctor/healthcare, financial, legal, real estate, and trucking to name a few.

Sometimes, it is hard to choose from the regular holiday cards because they are all so beautiful, but in my opinion, having the industry specific cards should make choosing quite easier for those whose industry is available. This way, you and your customers can truly relate to your holiday cards.

The industry specific cards has designs with items that are used within the specific industry. These designs are extremely creative designs. For example, there is a holiday card for the construction industry that has a Christmas tree made of construction tools, and there is also a construction industry card with a Christmas sock filled with construction tools. There is a dental industry card with Christmas lights made of teeth, and there is also a dental industry card with snowmen smiling brightly with bright white teeth.

If you are interested in the industry specific holiday cards, be sure to check out those categories under the Christmas & Holiday cards section of the site. Have fun selecting your card!

Benefits of Sending Holiday Cards to Customers

It has become very easy to send Christmas cards with the invention of something called recipient addressing.  The card company we have been using for the past few years has this option as a new offering and made it very easy to do.  We upload our mailing list using a special document type they send us in Excel and they take care of the rest! We already have all the patients listed in alphabetical order for our files and billing purposes.

We pick the holiday card and the greeting we feel is appropriate for our customers.  Then we have a few lines for the name of the dental practice as well as the names of the dentists and office staff.   We pick the color ink, or a special foil to have it printed inside the card.  Then the envelopes are printed with our return address on the back and the patients name and address on the front! It is amazing!  No work there!  All of our patients have commented when they come in for an appointment about our great Christmas cards, how beautiful and unique they are. 

We tell others in the field about one of the benefits of sending holiday cards to your customers is they remember to call you to comment on the greeting card and then remember they also need to come for a visit as well.  Tackled two birds with one stone…so to speak!      

Writing The Perfect Greeting For Your Holiday Cards

Writing the perfect custom greeting for your holiday cards should not be a difficult task.  Simply write a message expressing what you want to say.  The most important tip I can give you is to be truthful.  The second most important tip is to know your audience.  To play it safe, you could keep your greeting neutral by using “Season’s Greetings” or “Happy Holiday” over “Merry Christmas” – a common practice within a business environment.

It is not necessary to use your company name in the customization, but I always prefer to have my name front and center and then have my employees sign in the imprint area below the greeting. I also like to use keywords such as grateful or thankful to show appreciation for our relationship. 

Next, send a message directed towards the holiday season.  There are so many synonyms so I try to mix them up every year.  You can use “sending good cheer” or “wishes of peace and joy.” Another I use often is “wishes for a wonderful Holiday Season.” Then, I like to extend wishes of goodness for the upcoming year.  I’ve used phrases like “happy and successful,” but there are so many different wishes you could extend.  Others include safe, joyful, prosperous and healthy. 

Keep it simple and from the heart when writing the perfect custom greeting for your holiday cards.

Why Should I Use Die-Cut Christmas Cards?

Ordering holiday cards for your business seems like a fairly simple thing to do until it comes down to choosing a design. You need a holiday card design that stands for your business. Having your company name on the front of the card is a great way to showcase your company along with an eye-catching holiday design.

Die-cut Christmas cards are the perfect way to display your name on the front of the card without actually printing your name on the front of the card. Die-cut Christmas cards have an elegant window cut out of the front of the card so that you can print the business.

Pablo Neruda said that the eyes are the windows to the soul. If that is the case, then die-cut Christmas cards are the windows to high quality business names and joyous holiday seasons. Everything looks nicer with windows. Picture your house. Now picture your house without any windows. It wouldn’t be nearly as beautiful.

By using a die-cut card design, your business name will be the steady foundation that unites the inside and cover design of your holiday cards. Clients, friends, and family alike will be awed by the warmth and professionalism of the holiday cards that they receive and forever associate that with your business.

How To Select Christmas Cards That Represent Your Business

We all want to show appreciation to our clients or customers during the holidays. A great and very affective way to do so is sending Christmas cards. Although you can get a positive response from sending holiday cards, you can also get a negative response if you send the wrong greeting cards. You as a business want cards and only cards that represent you in a good way. Here’s a few tips on how it is done.

I recommend sending greeting cards of high quality. Something with class that says we appreciate your business with us this year and want to show our appreciation. I mean cards at your local pharmacy are cheaper but yet flimsy and there’s not a lot of attention to detail going into designing them. I recommend something with good paper that feels strong and sturdy in your customer’s hand and is decorated beautifully. Also I’m just one who believes if your sending something like a greeting card or gift to a client it should be a representation of your company and what you stand for. Try The Gallery Collection’s many choices to choose from.

Don’t for one second think its a bright idea to play practical jokes or test your client’s sense of humor when sending your cards. I mean tis the season to be jolly is true and most of us are in good spirits this time of year, but you still should make sure your company’s reputation is priority. I suggest you only send cards that are tasteful and straight to the point. Please avoid anything that is not appropriate for all ages.

Lastly but certainly not least be aware of your clients religious beliefs. As we all know everyone doesn’t celebrate Christmas so we don’t want to offend anyone. I recommend being mindful of where your cards are being sent and what your sending. Try purchasing a variety box with all the holidays in it for this time of year. Also avoid writing Merry Christmas in all of them as your greeting. Try writing something more generic like Season’s Greetings or Happy Holidays. This is also a category somewhere like The Gallery Collection will come be of great assistance.

So in conclusion when selecting Christmas cards this year keep these steps in mind. High quality, tasteful, nothing inappropriate, and again last but not least be aware of your clients beliefs. Follow these tips and you’ll be a ok. Enjoy your holiday season!

Adding a Little Humor To Your Christmas Cards

This day and age, there’s so much more to Christmas card designs than your traditional Christmas tree or holiday ornament design. Why not add some fun into the cards you send out this year? Try adding a little humor to your Christmas cards, just for a different feel!

One way you can do this is by taking a funny Christmas photo card. Maybe you can make the family pose in funny way, or dress your dog up in a silly “ugly” Christmas sweater. Put reindeer antler headband on your cat! That will definitely make the recipient chuckle!

If you don’t want to send out a photo Christmas card, there are plenty of humorous options you can choose from. You can pick a funny Christmas card, that has a whimsical Holiday-themed cartoon in the front. You could also send a less comical type of Christmas card, with fun characters on it. Usually goofy animals make a great option!

Designs like these are light-hearted and whimsical, which adds a little humor to your Christmas cards. We could all use a little laughter, and this is a great way to do so around the Holidays!!
