    With the Holidays quickly approaching I'm going to be sending cards out to customers thanking them for the business this year. Anyone else plan on sending out cards? Are you going to have someone print them up or do it yourself?

    I'm printing some out as I type. I ended up doing them myself, mainly because I had the heavyweight paper already (from sending out postcards earlier in the year) and I made a really good Christmas graphic on the front.

    ztr- We send cards out to everyone we worked for in the year.Regular customers get a 6" poinsettia as well.The ones who spend over 4k a year get a bottle of wine from our local winery with our name on the label. It's all a write-off, and carries far with our clients.:D

    Don't do cards...biggest accounts get pointsettias hand delivered by me.

    I paid $15-20 for about 150 cards. The cheapest i could find. I just wanted to remind them to send me a christmas bonus.

    I've got about 18 dozen cards to send out this year. Not looking forward to it. That's why they're still sitting here next to me while I goof around on the internet. :D

    I've quit sending Christmas cards, except for the few that I send out with my poinsettas to some of the better accounts. The Christmas cards just end up in the trash or get stacked up with the hundred other Christmas cards the customer get from other people.

    I'm now sending Thanksgiving cards instead. Very few other people are doing it so it actually gets noticed.

    Yes I'll be sending out Christmas cards to all my customers and then about a week later I'll send the Holiday letter from LawnCareSuccess to all my V.I.P. customers.
