holiday greeting cards

Hang the holly and dust off the address book, it’s that time again to send holiday greeting cards. Here are some things to think about when selecting and mailing your holiday hellos.


Who to include. Holiday cards are a great way to reach out to friends, neighbors, close business associates, and family. Edit your list, and check it twice!

What to send. Holiday photo cards have become increasingly popular. Photo or not, be certain to include a personalized holiday verse and your family name.


When to send. Update addresses and order custom cards in early November. Mail your cards any time after Thanksgiving. Plan to send cards so they arrive at their destination before Christmas Day. January 1 is considered the official final day of the holiday card season.


Hand write recipient addresses.  This gives your cards a personal touch. A hand-addressed card is always more charming than a printed label.


Include your return address.  This ensures that your recipients have your current address every year and they can use it to send a card back to you if they haven’t already.
