3 Tips for Sending Holiday Cards 

Mail Them Early

The ideal time for your holiday cards to arrive is early or mid-December. This means that the best time to get them to the post office is the week before Thanksgiving. This will ensure there is plenty of time for them to arrive while leaving some cushion in case there are any delivery delays with the holiday rush.

Make Them Personal

Resist the temptation to send e-cards. The best Christmas cards have a personal touch and are delivered in the mail. A handwritten note will go a long way to express holiday cheer to your recipients. Putting pen to paper is a nice way to show friends and family that you’re thinking of them.

Know When to Keep it Business

Sending holiday cards to colleagues and business associates is a nice gesture. Be sure to send them in the mail (don’t deliver them at work). Also, unless you know them personally, opt for sending a more general holiday card and avoid sending cards with your family photos and family letters. A simple holiday message and your signature will work well to express your holiday wishes.
