Leaves are falling, pumpkins are everywhere and the days are getting shorter which surely means that fall is here. You probably feel like the holiday season is still a long way off, but it will be here before you know it. If you are planning to send out a Christmas or holiday card to you past clients, businesses, friends, family, neighbors, etc., you need to be thinking about that now. Depending on the kind of card you are sending and how many you plan to send, it may require a significant amount of time to get your cards ready to mail. Here are some great tips to help you get your card mailed by December 1.
First, select the kind of card you want to send. You have several options of where you purchase your cards. You need to decide where you will purchase them. Maybe at the local super store, order luxury personalized cards to have shipped to you, or will you use an online greeting card company to handle all the details? You can order a custom card from many websites such as Shutterfly, Wal-Mart or Snapfish that allows you to upload photos, add a personal greeting and will then print the cards for you to pick up in the store or mail them to you. Save a step by having them print your return address or even your mailing addresses if you upload the list to them. They will even complete the process for you by stuffing your cards, adding postage and mailing them. While this may mean your cards get out sooner, it does mean you won’t be able to add a personal greeting to the card so make sure you are comfortable with that trade off. If you want these extra steps done by the company, it will take additional time over just printing your card so make sure you factor that into your time frame so your cards arrive when you would like them to.
There are also options such as SendOutCards and Ink Cards, which will allow you to personalize each individual card. They offer great card options, very quick turnaround and highly customized options but it isn’t without any effort. Sending individually customized greeting cards to everyone on your list will require a larger amount of your time so you may decide you don’t have that amount of time to put into this.
Now that you know the different options and have hopefully decided the approach you want to take, follow these steps to get your card mailed out on time and without too much effort.
- Decide what kind of card you want to send.
- Put your list together with names and addresses.
- Either purchase greeting cards or order your card online with your personal content.
- Purchase stamps if you are mailing yourself.
- Address the cards, stuff them and mail them.
While this task is broken down into just a few steps, some steps may take significant time if you aren’t organized. Locating pictures for your card, putting your address list together and even stuffing your cards if you are sending out a large quantity can take a lot of time.
