Those small details in a business relationship grow into trust, and trust grows into keeping their business as well as getting more business from referrals. .

How Greeting Cards Improve Working Relationships
- Maintains the Relationship
An important part of a working relationship is gaining your client’s trust especially if it’s a new client since they don’t have a history with your company. Sending clients greeting cards shows you care about your working relationship and their business with your company.
In addition to wishing a client or employee a “Happy Birthday” or “Happy Holidays,” the content on the card is a place to reminisce about memories and accomplishments. For example, if an employee was recently promoted, you could note you have seen them thrive in that role.
- More Personable
Instead of just saying it or emailing it, you can express yourself in a more personable way—greeting cards. Since 98% of people get their mail the day it’s delivered, you can conclude receiving a kind note wouldn’t go unopened.
- Keep In Touch
Whether you’re sending it to staff, clients or someone who has helped build your company, corporate greeting cards show the card receivers you recognize them.
