Do you think it’s too early for businesses to be playing Christmas music? We think so. Seriously, we haven’t even celebrated Thanksgiving yet! Sure, many owners of retail businesses believe that playing Jingle Bells and Rudolf the Red-Nosed Reindeer in mid-November will inspire their customers to start Christmas shopping a little early, but rushing the season can also have a negative impact on the shopping experience. As Christmas has become increasingly commercialized over the years, many people have begun to resent the dilution of the holiday’s religious and cultural significance. Perhaps it might be better to wait a little while—at least until Black Friday 🙂
But, It’s Never Too Early to Start Planning Your Business’s Holiday Cards!
1). The Creative Process Takes Time
It doesn’t take an inordinate amount of time, just time enough for your creative team at Boye Creative Group to design the look of your Custom Holiday Card, formulate and distill the proper message, and make any necessary revisions before getting your final approval. You know what they say, “Anything worth doing is worth doing right.”
2). Printing Takes Time
Depending on the location and workflow of your commercial printer, the turnaround time on your Holiday Cards could be up to two weeks. However, our Buffalo-based print vendors can have your Holiday Cards ready in just one-to-two days—just in time for the holidays.
3). Snail Mail Takes FOREVER!
Every year, during the month of December, the US Postal Service is inundated with truckloads of Christmas Cards, Hanukkah Cards, non-denominational Holiday Cards, New Year’s Day Cards, and gift packages. This influx of extra mail creates a bottleneck—prolonging Standard Mail delivery times by several days. Now, with the recent discontinuance of next-day mail delivery, your Standard Mail may not reach your recipients until after your holiday is over.
