The 8 Rules of Business Greeting Card Etiquette

1.Buy Quality Cards
1. 选择有质量的贺卡

Start with a good quality business greeting card to show that you value your clients and colleagues.

2. Update Your List
2. 更新联系人名单

Make sure your list is up-to-date with correct names and addresses. If you do this on a regular basis, it does not become a dreaded holiday chore.

3. Sign Cards Personally
3. 亲自撰写贺卡留言

Even if you have preprinted information on the business greeting card such as your name, you need to add your handwritten signature. The most elegant business greeting cards should have your personal signature and a short handwritten message.

4. Handwrite the Address
4. 手写地址

If you are ready to throw up your hands at this point and forget the whole project, then have someone else address the envelopes for you. Don't use computer-generated labels. They are impersonal and make your holiday wishes look like a mass mailing.

5. Mail to Home Address
5. 邮寄到对方的家庭地址

Mail your business greeting card to the home if you know the small business owner. Be sure to include the spouse's name. The card is not sent to both husband and wife at the business address unless they both work there.

6. Use Titles
6. 使用头衔称呼

Whether you are addressing the envelope to an individual or a couple, titles should always be used. It's "Mr. John Doe," not "John Doe," or "Mr. and Mrs. John Doe, rather that "John and Mary Doe."
无论你在信封的开头称呼个人还是夫妻,头衔都是必须的。如 John Doe先生,而不是John Doe,或John Doe先生和女士,而不是John和Mary Doe。

7. Be Sensitive to Traditions
7. 注意传统习惯

Find out whether your business greeting card recipients observe Christmas, Hanukah, or Kwanzaa. Make sure your message is appropriate for each individual.

8. Avoid the Mail Rush
8. 避开邮件高峰期

Mail your business greeting cards in time to arrive for the designated holiday.
