Thanksgiving cards are often over looked by businesses and this is a mistake. Oftentimes companies focus all of their efforts on Holiday cards each year, but why not try a new approach? Thanksgiving cards can be a fresh way to engage your clients, business contacts, and vendors.
Thanksgiving cards are a great way to send your company’s thanks and show gratitude. Since it’s before the holiday rush, and near Black Friday, this is a great time to send coupons or promotions for your products and services. Use a corporate-appropriate Thanksgiving card to send out special offers to certain clients or to advertise upcoming sales or releases.
Sending Thanksgiving cards is also perfect because of the timing. It is a great time to send a card seeing as your recipients won’t have over-flowing mailboxes yet. Your thoughtful card will stand out for sure and won’t be as likely to get tossed.
Show your appreciation with a beautiful card like the Harvest Wreath on Door Thanksgiving Card. This card is elegant and also offers you the chance to personalize the front of it with a personal message or company name. If your client displays their card, you’ll be getting a nice bit of advertising as well. Now that’s something to be thankful about!
Sending Thanksgiving cards isn’t anything new, but they have yet to grab mainstream attention and are a great, largely untapped opportunity to connect with clients and customers. Here are our Top 5 Reasons Why You Should Send Thanksgiving Cards.
To beat the rush Let’s face it, there’s a chance your carefully selected Christmas card is going to be lost in a blur of December cheer. Sending your well-wishes well before the Holiday rush makes it more of a pleasant surprise, standing on its own long before other holiday cards start rolling in. Like the first bite of dessert, these ‘beginning of the season’ cards really pack a lot of punch and make your company memorable.
To Stand out In addition to beating the rush, a Thanksgiving card allows your company to take one giant step ahead of others, standing out by doing something a little differently and – in the grand scheme of things – ‘unnecessary but appreciated’. There is an implied ‘going above and beyond’ with Thanksgiving cards – an extra step that you want your company to be known for.
To be inclusive Not everyone celebrates Thanksgiving, but it is one of the more inclusive holidays in the US. There’s a good chance you can send Thanksgiving cards to nearly everyone in your contacts list, and offers a great opportunity to share the company’s good will as a whole with little risk of offending.
To kick off the holiday season Whatever industry you’re in, there’s a good chance the end of the year brings a certain amount or type of work. Whether it’s holiday busy-ness, pre-winter needs or end of the year wrap-up, a Thanksgiving card can be an unspoken nudge that “it’s that time of year again” and time to start thinking about year-end needs.
To genuinely say thank you before life gets too busy And of course, a Thanksgiving card is never inappropriate to express gratitude for the part someone plays in your business. From clients, customers and colleagues to employees and their families, a moment taken to say Thank You and wish someone well is never wasted.
This year, you need to be the first one to make your mark among other businesses. How do you do that? By sending Thanksgiving cards! You will be opening the season with bang by sending Thanksgiving cards and assuring that you will stand out from the rest of the crowd. Your greeting cards of well wishes for a happy holiday season and a wonderful New Year will be easy to remember because they will be received before the onslaught of cards normally received between Thanksgiving and Christmas.
Another upside of sending a Thanksgiving card is the opportunity to say, “Thank you.” Whether your recipients are customers, other businesses or family and friends; this is a great chance to show your appreciation for what they contribute to your world. There is nothing more American than sending Thanksgiving cards. Most businesses stick with the Happy Holidays or Seasons Greetings card and remain on the sidelines till later in the holiday season. By sending Thanksgiving cards you’ll be ahead of the game and recipients will surely love them. This year, get ahead of the rush and open the holiday season up with a bang by with fun and thoughtful wishes for a Happy Thanksgiving.
During the holiday season, being one of the first to send my cards has always been important to me. I want to stand out from the crowd. Last year I decided to mix things up and do things a little different and boy was it a success!
I sent out Thanksgiving cards instead of Christmas/Holiday cards. The impact was amazing for a few of reason.
First off, I was the first holiday card people received. This stuck in their minds. During the craziness of December, no one was wondering did so and so send us a card this year? My card was truly remembered for its unique timing. I beat the holiday rush by sending Thanksgiving cards and will continue this new tradition into the future.
Secondly, there was no room for offending anyone. I send only cards to my American customers, family and friends. Wishing them a Happy Thanksgiving with the added message inside of joy through the entire Holiday Season and New Year was appreciated. They were thankful for my wishes.
Lastly, sending Thanksgiving cards alleviated me of rushing to get out Christmas cards in the hectic and exhausting month of December. I am so busy dealing with holiday gifts and parties and decorating. Now, I do not have to add Christmas writing, addressing and sending to that load.
Don’t forget to send Thanksgiving cards this year to stand out from the crowd and make your life easier!

It was hard, but I have selected 5 of my favorite Thanksgiving cards that I feel best represent this time of year.

Our business received several nice quality business Thanksgiving cards to kick off this holiday season, many proudly displaying the sending companies’ logos. I glanced at the back of the card with the nicest design and it happened to be from The Gallery Collection. I was intrigued as to the cost, so I visited their website and was surprised to find very reasonable prices. Each card costs less than a cup of coffee, and I was pleased to learn how inexpensive it is to have the company logo included.
I think it’s a good idea to send business holiday cards, but its genius to send company Thanksgiving cards! This year more than ever companies need to “giving thanks” to their customers for their continued business! It is important to thank our customers and clients and what better way than with nice quality Thanksgiving cards. Plus, business holiday cards seem to make a bigger impression when you send them around Thanksgiving just because you don’t get as many in November as you do in December. It’s like getting a jump on the competition. In my opinion your customers are more likely to remember your company name if you send them Thanksgiving cards ahead of the many other cards they will receive in the next month for the holiday season.
This year more than ever businesses must get their names back out there. What better occasion than Thanksgiving to show how grateful you are to still be in business through these hard economic times? Thanksgiving cards are the best way to enhance your current relationships, remind old customers that you still exist and attract new customers.
Honestly, I did not know that companies actually sent business Thanksgiving cards instead of Christmas cards until I began working for The Gallery Collection. Thinking about it however the idea is a pretty good one; it is unique in the sense that a Thanksgiving card will most likely be the first received during the holiday season and it will be displayed the longest. Everybody reads holiday cards to see who sent them so imagine this scenario; you’re a dentist, you send a Thanksgiving card to a patient, they display it and everyone that sees it says “I’ve been looking for a good dentist, can I have her number?” Well, it could happen!
Thanksgiving cards put you a step ahead on both a business level and a personal level. Warm seasonal greetings can help strengthen continuing relationships with customers and clients, and showcase the kind of thoughtful and personal company you work for.
What is Thanksgiving and what does it mean to you? Ask that question to a group of people and you are sure to get a different answer from almost everyone. Thanksgiving is celebrated to commemorate the first Thanksgiving, to celebrate the harvest, to give thanks to God for our many blessings, and the list goes on. Well it is those things and so much more.
Thanksgiving, by its definition is the act of giving thanks…plain and simple. So it makes sense that companies would want to (and should) send business Thanksgiving cards. After all, their “harvest” is a result of their business relationships with their employees, customers, clients, and associates.
We all receive business greeting cards for any number of occasions – our birthdays, our anniversaries, you name it. But what are they really saying? Well yes, I do hope that my insurance agent is sincere in wishing me a Happy Birthday and I’m sure he is. But isn’t he is also saying, “I want to acknowledge your birthday because I want you to know I appreciate you and your business”?
So, in my opinion, if you want to “give thanks” to someone, send a Thanksgiving card…plain and simple.
