Now you know some of the gifts you can create at FedEx Office. But do you know the best practices for holiday greetings? Read on to discover five tips to help you get the maximum impact for your holiday buck.

    1. Start early. Mail business holiday cards out before your competitors do, like the week after Thanksgiving.

    2. Thank them. Let them know you appreciate their loyalty.

    3. Be generous. Offer something of value, or a discount or coupon.

    4. Be genuine. Avoid using a generic holiday greeting or sounding salesy. This is the time for sincere expressions of warmth and goodwill.

    5. Remind them. Simply sum up your business's purpose or advantage to get them thinking about the idea of future partnerships.
