Happy October from DPI Direct! It might not feel much like fall here in San Diego, but we still pick up those pumpkin spice lattes on the way to work. It’s about time to start thinking about your holiday cards, and this month we’re sharing two trends we love.

The holidays are a time for celebration and reflection. So throw a party or send a note to your customers, but don’t forget to say, “Thanks for a great year!”

Throwing a holiday party? This cute and casual invitation will have employees and customers alike looking forward to the annual bash (especially if it’s the first annual!). Print your invite on flyers or little postcards and let the RSVPs roll in.

We’ve all received those “year in review” postcards from family and friends. What about from your favorite business? We love how this freelance designer mixes business stats with personal milestones (like her new dog!). If that doesn’t work for you, think about adding a fun statistic like daily cups of coffee per employee.

We hope you’ve been inspired by these holiday card ideas! Whether you already have a design in mind or are still brainstorming, ask your account manager for samples of our luxury holiday papers like pearlescent or 100% cotton.

No matter what you choose, it’s always a good idea to send warm wishes to those you love and appreciate—like the customers that make your business awesome!
