Creative Examples of Non-Holiday Greeting Cards

greeting cards
Recently, we covered how useful and effective greeting card marketing can actually be, but it can be quite tricky to find inspiration for greeting cards that don’t scream ‘Holiday cheer’ in the middle of the year.

If you’re trying to get inspired, or looking for your company’s next marketing campaign, we’ve put together some of our favorite non-holiday greeting card designs. While some of these are still occasion-specific, you wont find a single reindeer or pine tree in these card designs. Instead, these designs are great for uses throughout the year for celebrating your client’s birthday, thanking them for their continued support, and keeping your brand in their thoughts.

What’s important to remember when creating these designs, is that you want to keep your printed material relatively generalized, so that you can send it to clients regardless of the nature of your relationship together. Keep your message succinct and cheerful. You can always personalize the message by hand, which in itself can have a bigger a impact on the card’s recipient than a generalized greeting.

Make your client feel extra special by reaching out on their birthday. You can even take advantage of the opportunity and establish loyalty by offering a special birthday discount, boosting sales. You can be fun, witty, or tongue in cheek, but be personal.

Celebrate the first time you worked with your client, and remind them what brought them to you in the first place. Cards for corporate anniversaries should stay professional and clean.

Just because its not chilly outside, doesn’t mean your customers can’t be warmed with some love. Show them that they’re on your mind (and keep your company in theirs) with cards that celebrate other times of the year.
