Happy New Year greetings for professional peeps
Sending New Year cards to clients helps keep your business on their minds, and it’s just a nice thing to do. Sentiments for client cards usually include expressions of appreciation for their business, and/or wishes of success for the upcoming year. Make it genuine, keep your brand voice in mind, and remember to sign it with a “Your friends at [company name],” “The team at [company name],” or your name, if you’re not sending the card on behalf of your office or you’re an office of one.
Here are a couple business-y messages to get your word-generating wheels spinning:
- Thank you for giving us an opportunity to do what we love, and may you have a successful 2019.
- Wishing you a joyous holiday season and continued success in the new year.
- Wishing you a healthy, peaceful, and prosperous new year.
- Warmest wishes this holiday season. We look forward to making 2019 a successful year together!
- Wishing you continued inspiration and success in the new year. Happy holidays.
Any of these messages stand pretty well on their own, and using them in a design that doesn’t incorporate photos eliminates the need to round up the entire office and have them wave at the camera. It also looks super profesh.
Tip: You can easily adjust any PicMonkey template to jibe with your brand. Enter the hex values for each of your brand’s colors on the Graphic and Text palettes, or in the Background Color field in the Edits tab. You can also open a branded image (like your logo) as a graphic, then use the eyedropper to instantly match your hues. Top it off by placing your logo as a graphic, and boom! Card branding complete.
