It's been a challenging year. In my 24 years of owning a business, I can truly say this year was like no other. I've watched many businesses quickly adapt to the new normal. Not only did they stay afloat but they swam gracefully into uncharted waters and managed to successfully turn the year into a positive. I have also seen the flip side of that where some of my favorite businesses had to shut their doors.
So what on earth can you write in a holiday card that acknowledges the varying degrees of difficulty we have all experienced without negating someone's own experience?
As we were designing this year's holiday eCard line, we kept to traditional imagery and sayings so people could decide whether they wanted to address Covid-19's impact or just send holiday well wishes.
Today's blog provides examples of holiday messages with a bit of light humor plus a holiday greeting that thanks employees and gives a positive outlook to 2021.
We've seen a trend this year of businesses sending more joyful, non-traditional greeting cards. This playful, cartoon pup conveys light-hearted imagery that can be paired with a traditional holiday message or something that pokes a bit of fun at 2020 like this example.
In my last blog, I provided ideas for how to upload your own photos and use our new email design library to create completely customizable holiday greeting cards. In this example, I'll show you how you can also use the email design library for non-traditional greetings.
I'm sending a holiday greeting to my employees that will read like a newsletter so I searched for "Newsletter" layouts with holiday imagery.
I changed the colors to match my company logo, added a staff photo and personalized the message. I then added more snowflakes from the CorpNote image library to make it even more festive. This is what my holiday email looks like after I've customized it.
