With only 2 more months to go, the air is buzzing with anticipation for the most favorite time of the year—Christmas! People await for this time of the year to gather with their families, friends and loved ones; exchange gifts and simply to catch up with one another. This season also brings about one of the best traditions around—sending and receiving Christmas cards! If you work in the engineering industry and want to level up your Christmas card game this year, why not send your friends and coworkers engineer Christmas cards?
We all know the feeling of excitement seeing festive envelopes in our mailbox throughout the holiday season. It also feels good to know that you are able to bring that same kind of joy to others. But Christmas is not only about making our friends and family happy, it’s about spreading good cheer to everyone and that includes our coworkers, colleagues and clients too!
Below are some good reasons to send Christmas cards this holiday season!
Reasons to Send Engineer Christmas Cards
- Spreading The Holiday Spirit
There’s no better feeling than walking up to your mailbox and opening it to find a holiday card addressed to you. Christmas cards simply puts people in a festive mood thanks to their festive designs and cheerful messages. You can spread some of your holiday cheer this season by ditching your usual Christmas text message (or e-mail) for some handwritten, snail-mailed engineering Christmas cards.
- Reconnect with Friends and Family
If you have friends or family who live far, or have moved away, sending Christmas cards can help you reconnect. A Christmas card acts as a gentle reminder that even though they live far, you have not forgotten them. The holidays are also a great opportunity for you to update them on what’s happening with your life.
- Helps Keep Your Address Book Organized
If your address book is just filled with addresses that are no longer accurate and people who you no longer talk to, then perhaps it’s time to “clean” it up? Sending Christmas cards gives you the perfect excuse to start organizing your address book. It can be difficult to keep updated on who among your friends moved and where, but sending a bunch of greeting cards forces you to set some time aside and reorganize your address book.
- Update Your Family Photo
If you haven’t updated your family photo in a while, sending a Christmas card gives you the best excuse to do it now. You can trade in the group selfies, gather your family together and take a special family photo that you can frame all year long after sending out holiday greeting cards. Taking a new family photo can be fun and a great way to bond with each other. It’s also gives you and your family to introduce new family members (new grandkids, husbands, wives). If you recently adopted a pet you can show them off in your family photo engineering Christmas cards too!
- Express Gratitude
There is no better time to show your appreciation for friends, family, coworkers and clients than the holiday season! You can use a Christmas card to thank and extend gratitude to people who have supported you all year long. If you plan on sending greeting cards to your clients and coworkers make sure they remain professional. Pro Tip: be sure to include a handwritten message. People always appreciate anything that’s handwritten.
- Add a Card To Your Gift
Sending a boxed gift is not enough. You can pair it with customized greeting card too. This idea works well especially if you’re sending money or a gift card. It’s safe to assume that you won’t be able to exchange gifts in person with everyone on your list this year. You can solve this problem by ordering all your Christmas cards online at once and sending your gift and card together.
- Recipients Can Display Your Cards
Besides helping spread the holiday cheer, Christmas cards also double as fun holiday decorations. If your friends and family love decorating for the holiday season, let your Christmas card be a source of inspiration! There’s so many things you can do with them from card trees, handmade garlands to mantel displays!
Christmas cards are fun and easy to make during the holiday season. You can try your hand at creating a DIY project at home if you have extra cards left.
A Christmas card also gives you a good excuse to build professional relationships and improve your network. There’s nothing more friendly than sending your co-worker or colleague a heartfelt holiday greeting. Sending a card during the holiday season always reflects our thoughts and intention so make sure that your card reflects your relationship with the person receiving it.
- To Market Your Business
If you own or run a business, or have become acquainted with special clients at work, it would be wise for you to send them a Christmas greeting card. Why? Because it’s a smart way to advertise your business! In addition, you can show your appreciation for their business and express your gratitude for their support. Clients will surely welcome your gesture and this could help build a good reputation for your business. Win-win!
- Make Someone Happy
Christmas cards mirror one’s sentiment during the holiday season and they often make the people receiving them feel better. You can make someone smile by including a heartfelt message or funny Christmas photo in your card. They know they won’t be getting those from a pre-made Christmas card or an e-card! Regardless of which direction you go in (sentimental or funny), you can never underestimate the power of making someone happy with a simple Christmas card.
Although there are many ways to express your gratitude and feelings to someone during the holiday season, you can never go wrong with a Christmas card. That feeling of excitement that comes from opening a Christmas card with a handwritten note cannot be replicated by a text message or an e-card. Engineering Christmas cards don’t have to be expensive. There are many affordable options out there. In the end all that matters is that thought you put into sending one, and the recipient of the card will surely love it.
