How to Write Business Christmas Letters & Cards

Updated on December 22, 2013

Business Holiday Cards & Letters For Everyone

At the end of the year, it's customary for businesses to send holiday greetings or letters to clients, vendors, and other business associates. But what should you write that will sound professional and sincere without offending anyone's religious sensibilities? Here are some ideas for writing business Christmas wishes for your cards and letters.

3 Tips for Stress-Free Holiday Business Cards

Get started on your greeting cards

1. Start before December and save. If you're ordering preprinted business Christmas cards or need to send your letter to the printer, get your order in before the end of November and you'll not only give yourself more time, but you'll often save money with order-early holiday discounts. Starting early also gives you extra time to decide what type of cards you'll be sending - do you want recycled business holiday cards, photo business Christmas cards, or some other type of card?

2. Make a list and check it twice. Make a list of all the business associates to whom you'll be sending cards and then order slightly more than that to allow for last-minute additions or errors in addressing, stamping, etc. Be sure to update and check your mailing list before sending, too.

3. Send early. Many people take time off near the holidays, so get your letters or cards in the mail in early December to make sure their arrive at your recipient's office before he or she takes off for the holidays. It also means that YOUR holidays will be less stressful because you won't be waiting until the last minute to send your business Christmas cards.

Sample Business Christmas Letter

Just add your own details

If you'll be using your own company letterhead or other Christmas letter paper to send your holiday greetings, you'll need to write a short letter to express your wishes. Here is a sample business holiday letter you can customize to suit your needs.

Dear (Customer Name),

As the holiday season approaches, we'd like to take this opportunity to thank you for your continued partnership. It is business associates like you who make our jobs a pleasure and keep our company successful.

May your holiday season and the new year be filled with much joy, happiness and success. We look forward to working with you in the coming year and hope our business relationship continues for many years to come.

Happy holidays!

Christmas Card Sayings

Phrases for your holiday cards

If you're sending preprinted holiday cards rather than letters, you will only need a good phrase or two for your card. But finding the right words to include in a business holiday card can be harder than creating something for your friends and family, as you probably don't know your clients and merchants as well. Here are some safe phrases you can include in cards for business colleagues without fear of offending most people. Here are some business Christmas wishes you can use. Find more Christmas card greetings at Christmas Letter Tips.com.

      Instead of Christmas cards, I send Thanksgiving Day cards to clients and business colleagues. I do this because Thanksgiving is a day that everyone celebrates. And yes, I do send Christmas cards to relatives and friends who I know will appreciate them.

      Hi everyone - I just published an article on Effective Stress Management. If you are affected by stress, it helps to understand the cause and symptoms in order to find ways how to deal with it.

      I hope you will find it helpful to tackle the stress in the run up towards Christmas.

      Have a great day

      Not particularly, sometimes a simple letter, sometimes quotes. The most important is the message and of course that you remember them.

      We save over 1/3 the cost of christmas cards by designing and ordering the cards from an online printer. You can have completely customized cards and you don't need to have your logo or one personalized message only.

      I want to take this special moment to let the founders and educators who do their best to keep families safe all year round a place for all to remember. Christmas only comes 1 time and families come together to pray for those in need. This has been adventure and keeps me wondering even more that you among all in this lifetime is well appreciated by me and my friends. Thank you for being that one person that makes other people's work simple and fun at the same time. Business only comes with good opportunities that we make by choice. Very happy to be a part of your family. God Bless Everyone!

      Merry Christmas and Have a great day!

      [in reply to Schaffina] Hi Schaffina, I don't know if there are different formalities in Australia (Aussies, please chime in!), but in the US, your signature generally goes between the closing phrase and your typed name and title. Here's an example:
