How to write a business holiday card

You can follow these six steps to create a personal and effective holiday card:

1. Confirm addresses

Consider starting the holiday card process at least a month in advance to ensure you've enough time to confirm contact information, write your message and send it so it arrives before your recipients are out of the office for the holidays. You can usually find the most current company addresses online. You can also contact the business or individual directly for their details.

2. Choose the right format

Some businesses choose to send a card with a simple message, such as “Season's greetings” while others may include a letter with a more detailed message that expresses gratitude for a continued relationship. You may want to send a card with only a brief message to save space if you plan to have everyone in your workplace sign. Alternatively, you can send one with a longer greeting if only a few people are signing it, such as the manager and owner.

Some businesses send a letter along with their card that discusses events they experienced throughout the past year. Including a letter can help clients or partners connect more with the company team and understand how they contributed to the company success. Specifically, these letters might:

  • Include any major achievements

  • Describe volunteering events

  • Introduce new team members

3. Include a thoughtful message along with a signature

A personal message to each customer shows care. Consider writing a short message that includes a personal detail you may have gathered during your relationship with a client. Be sure to include the client, customer or business partner's name to personalize the message. This step can allow you to show individual appreciation. For example, “Dear Mindi, I hope you and your wife have a wonderful holiday.”

4. Hand write the addresses

The envelope is a recipient's first impression of a holiday card, so you can further personalize your card by handwriting the address. Taking the time to write out the address shows that you care about the business relationship. Make sure your handwriting is clear and legible, and include a return address. 

5. Send them at an appropriate time

There are several holidays in December, all occurring on different dates, and many people take extended vacations during the month. To ensure your cards reach the recipients at an appropriate time, send them early in December or right after Thanksgiving. Sending them early can also allow for any unexpected delays, such as weather events.

6. Consider all occasions

Many businesses receive cards during the winter holiday season. The company for which you work may make a larger impression if you send cards for a different holiday, such as Thanksgiving. If you know the birthday of an individual you correspond with regularly at another business, consider sending them a card to show you remember details and wish them well as they celebrate the day.

If you choose to send a letter with your holiday card, read the example below for guidance:

Dear Mancuso Lighting Team,

We wish you a peaceful holiday and new year. This year was an exciting one for us at Eternal Summer, and we couldn't have met our level of success without you.

This year, we were able to expand our product line to include an eco-friendly sunscreen option in SPF 70, ensuring our customers receive the best protection while we continue to uphold our green earth mission. We couldn't have achieved this without all of our clients and partners.

In the beginning of 2022, we created a volunteer organization to keep our beaches pristine. Every Saturday, our team—along with local citizens and business partners—works together to clean debris and litter from the beach and water. Throughout 2022, we managed to collect more than two tons of waste, and we plan to continue our efforts in 2023.

We also welcomed the newest member of our marketing team in November, Talia Marcos. She coordinates our external events, so you might have already had the pleasure to work with her. She has proven to be a valuable asset in the past month.

We look forward to our continued partnership in 2023. Together, we can continue our efforts to create sustainable products.

The Eternal Summer Team
