Oftentimes the holidays are marked by mailboxes full of cards from friends and family. Tiny Prints offers a wide selection of cards, including Wiley Valentine Christmas cards, that you can customize with your own pictures and messages. Sending out a Christmas card may seem like an easy, fun thing to do around the holidays, but if you don’t follow the right etiquette, you may end up offending someone.
A big part of Christmas card etiquette revolves around your mailing list. Who are you going to send your season’s greetings to? There isn’t necessarily a right or wrong answer, but you should try and keep your mailing list uniform. If you send it to one cousin, you had better send a card to any other cousin who has moved out of their parent’s house as well. You don’t want anyone to feel snubbed because you didn’t send a card.
If you want to send out cards the right way, you need to make sure you get yours to the post office early. Most people expect to get Christmas cards by mid-December, which means you should have yours in the mail by the second week in December at the latest.
To really personalize your card, you should consider sending a hand-written note. This doesn’t have to be anything too long. Keep it simple and let the receiver know you are thinking of them. If you want to send a longer update about your family, you can create a newsletter to send with your Wiley Valentine Christmas cards. This will ensure everyone gets the same update and help you avoid hand cramps from too much writing.
Finding the perfect holiday card is an important part of getting your cards out on time. However, Christmas etiquette doesn’t end once the cards are in the mail. Thank you cards and customized gift wrap are handy tools to have on hand during this gift-giving season.
