I was a tiny bit late with Christmas cards this year. But I didn’t want to give up on my idea of sending cards out still. Last year I chose Minted.com to make a fun family photo into a business-y post card to send to contacts and former clients. I kind of loved the idea still and wanted to make a business holiday card. In 2014, I think that business postcard was really well received and I enjoyed sending it. There is obvious merit in thanking former clients for their business. It’s nice, classy and it also serves to remind people I am still available to help with social strategy.
This year I was so swamped with all my posts and clients, and year end reporting that I scarcely came up for breath even on Christmas Day. Also we plotted a big family trip for two days after Christmas so that meant the office was in chaos as I planned for eight days off and things were hairy. What to do? Well, I checked Minted.com again to see what they had to offer. This past year I also won a beautiful batch of business cards printed by them. I love the design and the speedy service and fast shipping. Minted also has a great range of products that meet all your needs for business stationery throughout the year. I have ordered from Minted before and I knew I could count on Minted.com to send me my products fast. I discovered Happy New Year’s foil pressed holiday cards that looked professional and I added some personal business details fast. I also grabbed a few client’s addresses that I had filed away (memo to self: do a better job of that this year) and I personalized the envelopes too. Then I hit order.
The batch of cards and envelopes arrived quickly and I shot them into the mail. I also added on a few fun personal Christmas cards. You can see the selfie Christmas cards here. It was days before Christmas when I ordered and finalized the purchase, but I assumed the cards would get there just in time for New Years. I was extremely happy with the look and the service and I have, in fact, heard back from many clients letting me know they received the cards. Two of those clients have asked for budgets for strategy through 2015. That makes me happy.
What do you think? Have you ever sent business Christmas cards or New Year’s cards?
I received product from Minted.com in return for a review. My opinion is all my own.
