Here are some useful tips to deciding on what kind of card you will send:
Personalised Christmas Cards:
Include personal information relative either to yourself or your business that ensures you can send the card to anyone but that they will know it relates to you and you took the time and effort to plan the card especially for the people you know. Generally personal information or details about your family should only be used for family Christmas cards and not business cards.
When you are not sure of the religious convictions of the people you are sending the cards to then make sure your card is not specific to any one religion. This is important when you are sending cards that will be to friends and family but even more important if you are planning to send religious cards as business Christmas cards. Perhaps in this case it may be better to stick to a classic Christmas card and put your personal annotations in for each person you are sending the card to.
Business Christmas Cards:
For purely business Christmas cards you want to ensure that the card reflects the theme of your business and your appreciation for the dealings you have had with the businesses you will send cards to. When you can personalise the cards themselves to reflect your business this makes a big impact on your business associates or suppliers.
