Christmas Cards

Last week I sent to all of my customers a Xmas card, saying Happy Holidays Ect Ect. they started coming back today. customers sending me cards wishing the same greeting to me. today I recieved 8 in the mail. 7 of them had Tips in them from $5.00 to $30.00. Now I went to the local Dollar store and bought 4 packs of 32 cards with Envelopes. Printed them out through the data base and mailed them. Cost was
Cards 4 Boxes @ $4.50 per box = $18.00
Stamps 2 rolls @ $32.00 per Roll = $64.00
Time??????????
Total $82.00 (One Month Of 1 Customer)

Advantage. It really lets your customers know that you do care about them, And your not just the lawn guy.

I send cards but I bought a scanner, and some card company keeps sending me samples of cards with a landscaping theme. I scan the card, crop, edit, resize the card, and customize the back with my business name,etc. With this setup I am able to personalize the cards for each customer, it doesn`t take that much longer. The customers really get a kick out of the cards and can`t wait until the next holiday season to see what they will get. I use a good card paper and they come out really nice.

Turfman I only see one mistake!! ALWAYS buy cards AFTER the holidays they are much cheaper...I but several boxes for $1.00 ea. and put them up with the decorations..
also hand sign them at least.
