Default Holiday Calendars & Christmas Cards

Do any of you give these out to your customers in December? If you do, where do you get yours from? Also, what else do you do to say thank you to your customers?

I have purchased Holiday greeting cards. They are personalized with a message from the business. I believe people will be happy to see them. I spent $145 for 125 cards including self stick envelops with both being personalized.

Hi Jymie,

How did you want to distribute them? Were you looking to mail them to customers only or did you want to put them on a door hanger and use them as marketing material for a larger audience than just customers?

I'm looking to mail them. Just to show them some form of thank you.

Do you think it is a good idea to include a photo of you and your staff in santa hats on your equipment or in front of your trailer?

Or maybe with holiday lights on your truck or equipment, such as these?

I went out to the local Hallmark store today and found a card I liked and bought two boxes of them.
I then customized it on my computer.

That is fantastic! How did you handle the printing? Did you print out an insert that you will slide in each card? Were the cards blank inside? Or did you print right on the card?

I used Microsoft Publisher and used a template that fit the cards I had.
I used one card as a test card and then just adjusted the Logo and the text till it fit right.
I then just ran all the cards through the printer 36 custom card total cost before postage $22.40

I found a stack of old Christmas Holiday cards I had got printed back in the day and I had some leftover for this year. The only problem, I ran out of envelopes
.

So this year, it won't cost me much. All I need is a few US stamps and a few envelopes and I'm ready to send my Christmas cards again. And I had already bought a bunch of stamps for the season so yeah, won't cost me much this year in Christmas Cards

Here's what I had
