By now I am sure you know that sending Business Holiday Card is a great way to retain customer loyalty and solidify relations with new customers. I am sure you also know that choosing the best quality Business Holiday Card is of utmost importance as the card speaks volumes about your impeccable taste.
If you are going to go all out and do it right, the card is not the only place perfection is needed; remember the envelope is what the recipient sees first, so ok, it ends up in the trash but it is the first impression. Here are some ideas on how to make those envelopes pop with pride.
Always include your return address including your company name, think more exposure.
Address the envelope to the person intended then the company name and address especially if you are sending to a large company. If you are sending to a large group, address Business Holiday Card to the Manager/Supervisor then add something like “and crew” or “and staff” so no one will feel left out.
Have someone proof read the names and addresses so the recipient doesn’t get an envelope marked up by the post office.
If your handwriting isn’t the best, either find someone who can help or type on the envelope. Don’t use labels, really, this is so impersonal and no offense to those who do but it is tacky. Make sure your recipient knows you care enough to send the nicest Business Holiday Card possible.
You’ve carefully selected your cards, customized them to your heart’s delight, and you are ready to mail them out in your pristine envelopes. As you are considering finishing touches for your cards, you might want to look at purchasing seals for your envelopes. Each pack contains 50 metallic seals in your choice of gold foil or silver foil. These seals match seamlessly with the foil lining of envelopes that come with The Gallery Collection’s holiday cards and other greeting cards. It is such a classy finishing touch, reminiscent of old-fashioned niceties like sealing cards with a wax stamp. These seals are embossed, giving your card a raised element which makes the card feel more personalized. They are easy to apply, you just peel and stick them! And the adhesive is strong enough to keep your envelopes closed. Each quality seal is 1-1/4” in diameter. The gold and silver both boast a bright, metallic shine. This beauty is only elevated by the intricate pattern on every seal—indicative of royalty—informing your recipient that this is a message of utmost importance. Make any occasion feel grand with a pack of metallic foil seals.
There’s no doubt presentation plays a huge role in the process of mailing out greeting cards. Whether it be sending out cards during the Christmas season, cards celebrating the New Year, Thanksgiving cards, or even classic Birthday cards, you want to choose a design that stands out from all the rest. Leaving an impression usually occurs with the first thing someone sees. When receiving a greeting card in the mail, what is the first thing you see? Unless people suddenly start sending greeting cards with their postage stamp on the actual card, then the first thing you’ll see is the envelope.
If you order your greeting cards from The Gallery Collection, you have a few nice options when it comes to choosing the type of envelope you want to send your cards in. You can choose either white or buff color for your envelope, and the inside can be white, silver, gold, or pearl. The process of sealing your envelopes is where you can get creative. The general option offered is “moisture seal” style envelopes, where you can either lick the envelope or apply a liquid based substance then press down to seal them up. For a slight upgrade in price, you can also choose to select “seal-fast” envelopes, in which the hard work is pretty much done for you, all you have to do is remove the wrapper to reveal the adhesiveness and press down to seal.
My personal favorite option is the embossed foil seals. These elegant and eye-catching seals come in either gold or silver, to compliment the specific envelope beautifully. The 1 inch seals come in packs of 50. The small additional charge is surely worth it to get that extra oomph with your cards and stand out from the rest of card senders. Not only do the embossed foil seals look fancy and unique, they also provide an easier route to opening the envelope for the recipients. Instead of clawing through the envelope seal, they can simply open the 1 inch seal and get to see the beautiful card design you chose. Sounds like a win-win to me.
