Default Christmas cards

It's almost December 1st and I was wondering when are you suppose to start sending your x-mas cards to your customers/suppliers ?

I did that last year but I don't remember when I sent them

That is a good question. I would think the sooner the better because they might hang them up and it would keep your name up on a wall for a longer period of time.

What are you doing for Christmas cards?

Very nice!

Do you sign each one? Do you write any personal notes in it? What about including any marketing material?

That would be pretty cool actually. You could even include a few business cards. Maybe you have some kind of coupon for a free 'xxxxxxxxx' what ever it is. Maybe even something they could pass on to a few friends or neighbors. What about a free aeration? Would that be worth while to get people to call you in the spring or fall and keep you in their minds? Maybe what about some holiday decorations? Maybe a % off holiday decorations?

I'm thinking of making a coupon pre-pay for season 2009 and save 10%

If I remember correctly, I sent my cards 10 days before x-mas ? Is this too late ?

That sounds awesome Justin. It will be neat to see what kind of response you get for the prepay. Will they have to pay by a certain time to get that discount?
