Here are a few more tips to help you continue with proper holiday card etiquette, this article concentrating more on how to sign your holiday cards and when you should mail your cards. Your Signature We have a few people every year who call in and ask if it’s possible to get their signature preprinted on the inside of the card. This is poor form. Our holiday cards are printed with a verse, but as far as your signature that should always be hand written. Signing the card and adding your own little note is what makes the card personal to each recipient. The hand written name or note shows them that you took the time and effort to sign each card. Keep in mind if you do choose to write a personal note in each, it does not have to be a long note. Keep it simple, the card already has a holiday greeting. If you have a long holiday card list the thought of signing them all can be a little overwhelming. The best way to tackle the long list is to spread it out.  Do this by starting to write your cards early, maybe in late October or early November. Don’t wait until December to start.  ...Read More
Holiday Card Etiquette   We know it is a little early to be thinking of your holiday card list, but we’re going to go over a few tips to help you get started when the proper time arrives.   Holiday Card List The first thing you need to do is think about who you will be sending cards to.  Our answer would be to send cards to as many people as possible.  We might be a tad biased, but there is some truth to it.  Holiday Cards are usually a way for you to reconnect with people you don’t see or speak to on a regular basis.  In today’s digital society that number could become a pretty large.  The best way to figure out an estimate of how many cards to order is to start with your address book and last years card list.  Start by removing old business associates and loved ones that have passed away.  Then add new friends, family members or colleagues.  This list will give you a good idea of the number of cards you’ll need.  Make sure when you’re placing your order that you order more than you think you’ll need.  It is cheaper to...Read More
