Although short-lived, this association can help maintain that company/client relatability throughout the year.
- Stand Out
Holiday cards can also be a great way of highlighting and sharing a variety of accomplishments, awards, etc. that the company has achieved throughout the year. Sharing such items can help clients see the big picture as well as help reinforce the brand as solid and accomplished. These highlights can also help differentiate one agency from another. The combination of events/accomplishments will be unique in itself and will help your brand stand out.

Finally, companies can also use this as an opportunity to show off their many talents. Whether it be interactive or printed, or a combination of both, it’s a quick way to show off a brand in a certain light through the use of multiple media and design techniques. Utilizing your talents not only demonstrates your company’s scope of abilities, but it’s also a way for your brand to become something less abstract. Creating a specific vision for your brand through a holiday card benefits both the company and the client.
