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!!
You are sending out Christmas cards on behalf of your business this year. You’ve thought about everything except how in the world you are supposed to do the envelopes! Of course you know the basics: Recipient address, proper postage, and a return address?
Although it is not necessary to include a return address, should you? Will your recipient even open it because they might think it’s junk mail? While there is the advantage of curiosity, why not impress recipients as opposed to trick? Using your name will reinforce your company with your well wishes of Christmas cheer. Why wouldn’t you want that good press?
You can place your return address on the front or on the back flap of the envelope. Either is correct. Personally, I like the return address to be on the back flap in foil. It is an elegant statement that the recipient will see just before seeing your Christmas card. Everything sets the tone of your attempt to contact the customer, so do not overlook anything.
Consider using your logo with your company name for a sophisticated look. This little touch will make you stand out in a good way. It is impressive to use your company logo printed as opposed to on a stamp or a sticker. This shows forethought and care. Finishing touches? Consider sealing your envelope with a gold or silver seal. Stand out this holiday season by mailing your cards out early!
It can seem complicated to create your own Business Christmas Photo Cards to send to clients and correspondents this holiday season. But, don’t be overwhelmed. Here’s how you can easily navigate The Gallery Collection’s vast selection of templates and design your own Holiday Card!
There are 100+ Christmas Photo Card design options available. Once you find a greeting card you like, simply follow the step-by-step instructions to upload your photo and customize your cards. You can always call a representative to help if you get stuck or have questions at 800-950-7064.
You’ll notice as you browse that some designs even have options to add your company name to the front of the card and all have the ability to edit the text inside. Make sure you take a photo you’re pleased with. Pay attention to every detail and think about how your photo will look with the template of your choosing. You can always get a physical proof of your greeting card for an additional charge if you feel hesitant.
Nervous about the time-frame? Once your photo is submitted, it only takes around 3 – 5 business days to produce before The Gallery Collection ships your Business Photo Card order! For such highly personalized and professional Christmas cards, you can’t beat that turn-around time—which even comes with a 100% satisfaction guarantee!
So here I am in November, preparing to order my Christmas Cards to send to our clients. I’ve chosen the beautiful Glowing Holiday Forest Card (shown above) with customizations to include our logo in a luxurious Gold Foil.
While very satisfied with the choice of card and personalization, the final challenge I face is how to manage a timely, cost effective approach to mailing my Christmas cards! I just don’t have the spare time nor do I have staff with spare time to address, stuff, seal and apply postage to 1,550 greeting cards. What other alternatives are available to mail my Christmas cards?
My first thought is that I could perhaps hire a temporary from an agency to handle this but that’s costly and seems a bit ludicrous for what should be a one, max two day project! I then notice that the company I’m purchasing the greeting cards from gallerycollection.com offers a full mailing service to their customers at a very reasonable rate. They will address, fold, stuff, seal and mail all of my cards. I simply need to submit my list of client addresses. Well this certainly seems something worth considering.
Instructions were easy to follow, ordering has always been easy with Gallery Collection (have ordered from them before) and Voila! My Christmas cards were personalized, in envelopes, sealed and mailed in a timely fashion for all of our clients to have for the holidays. At one point, I did call customer service with a question and was assisted by one of the most courteous and helpful representatives I have ever dealt with.
How should I (or anyone!) mail their Christmas cards? Without a doubt, take advantage of ordering with a company that has beautiful greeting cards, great service and will manage “the whole package” for you!
You want to impress your boss, but boy is it a lot of pressure to make a decision for the whole company. Sure, it’s only a card. A card that will be given to every client, personal contact of your boss, as well as the whole company’s staff!
When you are faced with a decision that involves so many people, it can be daunting to try and figure out what single thing is going to please everyone. First thing’s first: Keep your priorities in check. Make sure you are solid on your budget (and make sure you are positive on the quantity!), time frame to get and deliver the cards, and always keep in mind the audience. While your boss’ opinion might take precedence over your own here, do not overlook the recipients. Who is the card addressing and therefore what should the right message be? Do they all celebrate the same holiday? Be considerate of these sensitivities but realize that ultimately if you know your boss wants a Christmas card sent out—despite any conflicts that could arise—the card you order better be Holly Jolly.
If you’re really not sure what your boss will like—ask! Come with specific questions that are not extremely limiting so you’re not screwed into trying to find a unicorn card. The idea is to get your boss’ input without annoying them or allowing them to form an ideal card (therefore bolstering their expectations). Ask things like if they wanted a certain theme or color scheme. This could be heavily revealing to the type of card they expect. Or ask whoever chose the company holiday card last year to gain some insight.
Once you have your criteria in mind, actually choosing a card should be much easier. You’ve already narrowed it down substantially from answering those few questions. So stay focused. It can be easy to be wowed by all the cards available to you. Keep checking in with what you know you need to buy and make the best decision you can. Don’t search with fear that you’ll get the wrong one. Search with the intention of finding the best Christmas card you can.
If you are overwhelmed by the idea of picking your Christmas cards, let alone what to say in them, you’ve come to the right place. Here are tips to help get you Ho-Ho-Holiday ready in no time.
You want to send out a card that is appropriate for your intended audience but that also matches your personality. The best place to find a huge range of high-quality Christmas cards is at The Gallery Collection. There hundreds of designs to choose from, so you are bound to find one – or a couple dozen – cards you really love. A helpful hint is that you can use the heart icon to save any designs you’re interested in. This way you can revisit the site days later and have them all saved in one place, making it easy to compare.
Now that you have your card’s cover figured out, you can select one of the dozens of greetings featured on The Gallery Collection. All of them are included and some even have snowflakes or a snowman! This makes figuring out what to say easy but still genuine and tailored to your tastes. If none of the many varying fonts and sentiments catch your eye – but all that browsing has you thinking up your own greeting – you always have the option of crafting your own words and choosing your own font (for an additional charge). You also must decide if you’d like ink (included) or foil (extra).
One to two lines of text come included under the greeting as well, making it easy to personalize your card and impress your recipients, without a hefty price-tag. If you’d rather use signatures instead of hand-signing your cards, you may also add this personal touch with ease (and a nominal fee).
There are so many ways to customize your Christmas cards on The Gallery Collection – you could even add text to the front of many cards or incorporate personal photos! So get looking and surprise yourself with how hassle-free and heartfelt your Christmas cards can be.
It can be a lot of pressure to create the perfect Christmas card each year—especially when your family decides to try a Christmas Photo card! Here are some helpful tips to capture the perfect image for the perfect cards!
-Pay attention to the size of the photo, as many Christmas Photo card creators require a minimum/maximum for you image specs.
-Be aware of your background. Give thought to where you want to take your photo. Don’t overlook a mess or a clashing color in the background.
-Take multiple shots! This way you have a few options to choose from, or you can even Photoshop everyone’s best picture together to create a masterpiece!
-Think of a unifying theme for your picture. Whether it’s clothing, colors, or a vibe, consider adhering to a specific theme as a group. Committing to a group theme might look more put-together or polished than if the photo is haphazard. You can control the direction of your Christmas Photo card with just a little forethought.
-Put it all together with the same attention to detail that you took the photo with. Make selections like the card stock, border of photo, and message inside. . .with the outside in mind. This will make the Christmas Card feel complete.
There is no place like home for the holidays. And why not make sure your company name and logo is in everyone’s home? Design Your Own holiday card and send it out to all your perspective clients, your employees and vendors. With a little in house graphical work you can really create something magical.
Your company name and logo is your identity. And let us face it Christmas is a magical time that everyone enjoys. Why not meld the two together this season and not only get good will out there…get YOU out there. Another thing you can do is take a company picture. Maybe everyone wearing some Santa hats, maybe some elves mixed in. Slap a little “Happy Holidays from” your company and you have a whimsical card that will get you on the side of someone’s cubicle all season long.
Keep in mind there are many other ways to do this. You can do a card that has a regular “Christmasy” type image on the front with some text that has your company name on it as well. Either way works just fine. The key is do not forget to tell everyone happy holidays and do not forget to tell them who is saying it to them.
When the Holiday season comes around, it is essential to pick the perfect card, border, or background. But, you might find yourself unable to choose one after scrolling through thousands of design options. If you fall under this category, don’t worry! You could simply create your own design using the new Custom Photo Mount cards from the Gallery Collection.
Do you have a specific picture you would like to turn into an elegant Holiday card? Save yourself the stress of running to the store and printing out the pictures, and then finding the right card and scribbling a somewhat personal message inside every single one. That’s just too much work.
With the Gallery Collection’s Custom Photo Mounts, you can have your photos printed for you, mounted onto the card, AND imprinted with a personal message, name, and etc. All you have to do is pick a card stock, white, black, red, etc., and a border color, silver or gold, and then directly upload your picture. The Custom Photo Mounts give you the option of choosing a gloss or matte finish for the photo, and then you can get the inside of the card personalized. Pick one of the standard greetings, and then add a custom imprint such as, “From all of us at the Gallery Collection,” or “The Gallery Collection Family.”
No more worrying about finding the perfect card because now you can create your perfect card!
Last year for the Holiday season I received a great Christmas card from one of the companies I have done business with in the past. The card was a sturdy one with a really great picture on the front of all the employees with these great happy smiles! It made me think about the fact that knowing the faces of the actual people you talk with to do your business really can make a difference. I realized this fact once I saw a picture of the lovely woman I have spoken with over the phone. Putting together the face with the voice and her mannerisms gave me a warmer connection to the company, which happens to sell many items I can get in numerous other places. Since many other companies also offer most of the same stuff, having this connection made a difference. I liked the service and then the picture of the employees solidified my feelings towards this company. I guess you could say there are benefits of sending photo Christmas Cards to your Customers since it might bring in new business and also get some business back that may have gone elsewhere. An increase in the bottom line, something we all want! Just because of employee faces on a Christmas card. Good wishes make good connections!
