Саги, задуманные и записанные со времени основания города, были неисчерпаемы. Они затрагивали все чувства, обладали бесконечно изменчивыми тонкостями. Одни, популярные среди самых юных, были несложными повествованиями о приключениях и открытиях, другие - исследованиями психологических состояний, иные же - упражнениями в логике и математике, способными доставить изысканные наслаждения изощренным умам. И тем не менее, вполне удовлетворяя друзей Элвина, у него самого саги оставляли чувство незавершенности.
Most businesses are closed on Thanksgiving so that people can spend time with family. Still, while Thanksgiving is a family centered holiday, it’s also a time for being thankful (duh, it’s right there in the name). And one thing business people should always be thankful for is their clientele.
Therefore, it’s entirely appropriate (and thoughtful) to send Thanksgiving wishes to your business clients. There’s nothing wrong with sending a simple, generic “Happy Thanksgiving” message, the likes of which you might share with a friend or neighbor. However, thanking your clients specifically for their business is also a nice touch.
To help you hit the perfect note, we’ve come up with these sample Thanksgiving messages for clients. Use them as-is, or as inspiration for your own message of gratitude.
Note: Looking for something more casual? See our list of Thanksgiving messages for family and friends.
Here are some short Thanksgiving messages that you could incorporate into an email, or hand-write into a greeting card.
Here are some longer Thanksgiving messages from a business person to a client.
Here’s a template for a Thanksgiving email message to business clients.
Before everyone goes their separate ways this Thanksgiving, I wanted to send a quick message to let you know how much I appreciate having you as a client. Working with people like you is what makes my job great, and that’s something for which I’m truly thankful. I wish you all the best this holiday season and in the coming year.
We hope these examples helped you land on the perfect Thanksgiving message for your clients. In any case, we’re thankful that you read this article. As long as you’re here, you might also want to check out these funny turkey puns (warning: contains fowl language).

The holidays are all about expressing gratitude, so there’s no better time to thank your customers and clients for their continued loyalty. Holiday rewards and gifts to clients can set your business and brand apart from the competition. While gifts may not be a part of your company’s yearly traditions, there’s one thing that should be—sending holiday cards to clients and customers.
It may seem like a simple act, but simple, genuine gestures help forge lasting connections. Of course, not all holiday messages from businesses are created equal. Your design, message, timing, and delivery will all impact how well your holiday wishes are received. To make the most out of your seasonal mail, follow these tips:
If your brand has experience with direct mail marketing, you already know that content, design, and timing can have a major impact on how well your campaigns perform. Company Christmas cards and holiday greetings are no different. They require a solid strategy and streamlined process to engage customers and build your brand identity. Here are some tips that can help:
Delighting customers and clients with eye-catching holiday cards starts by choosing the right materials. Resist the urge to order cut-rate bulk cards from overseas. You’ll pay for your choice when your cards arrive on thin, crumpled paper or perhaps even worse—don’t arrive at all. Instead, stick with a trusted printer and distributor located in the U.S. MSP Pittsburgh has been delighting clients since 1953, so if you’re looking for rich graphics and quality paper stock, you can depend on us!
There’s no point in sending holiday greeting cards to clients and customers if they never receive them. Ensure your seasonal cards make it to the right mailboxes by beginning with a clean, updated list. Don’t fall back on last year’s Christmas card list—a lot can change in a year, and employees may now work for new companies with new addresses. Make sure your information is current and check for duplicates to reduce waste.
Gone are the days of impersonal, cold corporate Christmas cards. Today’s clients and customers expect holiday greetings that are warm and engaging. There are plenty of ways to enhance your premium brand strategy by adding a personal touch to your business’s holiday cards. Utilize personalization tokens to address the inner message of each card to the exact recipient. Variable data printing can also help you choose a variety of messages for clients in different industries. To really add a personal touch, incorporate digital handwriting into your holiday messages. With hundreds of handwriting styles, it’s easy to choose one that fits your brand image.
Sending a client or customer a card that celebrates the wrong holiday can backfire. Instead of helping build a better business relationship, these messages can create distance and make your brand seem out of touch or culturally insensitive. It is okay to send a specific card that celebrates Christmas, Hannukah, Kwanzaa or another cultural holiday. But if you aren’t sure which of these your client celebrates, stick with more general seasonal greetings instead. You can’t go wrong with “Seasons Greetings” or “Happy Holidays.”
With retail promotions, business Christmas cards, and gifts and gift cards being shipped, the holidays are by far the busiest season for the Post Office and mail distribution centers. Get ahead of the holiday rush by designing and ordering your company’s holiday mail early. Customers will remember the first cards they receive most, so it doesn’t hurt to be the holiday early bird. If you’re shipping later than you’d like, choose USPS first class mail to ensure your messages arrive on time.
Remember the last time you received a wedding invitation? The envelope address likely included “Mr.” or “Mrs.” before your name. To show your customers and clients that you respect and value their business, you should include the same kinds of proper titles when you address your holiday messages and cards.
Have you built a personal relationship with a client? If you know them well, it’s acceptable to send this year’s corporate holiday cards to their home address (including a personal note, of course!) However, if you’re sending cards out to new or potential leads, or clients you don’t have a personal connection with, address the envelopes to their business address instead. If you’re delivering holiday cards to an office, make sure to send them early as many employees take early vacations in December.
If you’re asking this question, you’re not alone. Many business and brand procrastinate sending their holiday greetings simply because they can’t decide what to say. It’s important that whatever message you choose to send, that it reflects your brand voice and values. Here are a few ideas to get you started:
No matter which message you choose, remember to make it your own. Include a special holiday graphic of your brand’s mascot, share a photo of your company Christmas tree, or include a special message from your CEO. No matter which holiday design and message you choose, we’re happy to help. Contact us today to get your holiday card campaign started and beat your competitors to the mailbox!

A New Years thank you note lets employees, customers, and business partners know how much you value your relationships with them, and that you look forward to continuing to do business together.
It’s sometimes stressful figuring out what to say, but as Durham, N.C. Herald Sun columnist Dawn Baumgartner Vaughan says in “Write Those Thank You Notes,”
“The most important part of the thank you note is just doing it. I think they make thank you notes smaller than regular note cards because the thanker is struggling to fill that blank space. Now I see it pretty simply. Offer seasonal greetings. Say thank you. Finish up with a ‘Happy New Year’ and you’re all set.”
Show Appreciation for Those Who Help Make You Successful
Vaughan is referring to thank you notes for friends and family, but her central points apply to business thank you notes as well. Of course you’ll want to specifically thank recipients for helping your business achieve a successful year, whether it’s an employee’s hard work, a customer’s support, or a business partner’s excellent service. Include a positive message about continuing to work together this year.
In “Giving Thanks to Customers, Employees, and Others,” at BusinessWritingBlog,com, Lynn Gaertner-Johnston, founder of Syntax Training, notes that:
“The purpose of the thank-you gesture is to show appreciation for the people who help you succeed or make your work life enjoyable.”
The Personal Touch
It’s best to snailmail your thank you note if possible. In USA Today’s “Best Ways to Say Thank You this Holiday Season,” Tanya Rivera, a news anchor at WFMY-TV, quotes etiquette expert Sindy Martin on the do’s and don’ts of appreciation.
“If the person you are thanking tends to use e-mail, then a [thank you note via email is] appropriate. However, taking the time to write a short thank you note and actually put it in the mail really shows how much that person means to you and how grateful you are for the relationship.”
And in another of Gaertner-Johnston’sposts, “Holiday Greetings Made Easy,” she offers suggestions for sending thank you notes to your customers, clients, employees, mentors, donors, vendors, service providers, and others who helped make your 2014 successful:
Printed vs. Handwritten Signature. Whenever possible, sign your cards rather than using a typed signature. Although a signature typed in gold or silver looks impressive, writing a message and signing your name shows a relationship with your reader. Pass around cards at your workplace and have people who know the recipients sign them.
Responding to Holiday Greetings. Although responding to holiday cards and greetings is not required, it’s thoughtful to do so. Whenever you can spread peace, joy, and friendship in the world, do it!
Writing Happy New Year.Why not use your readers’ languages to communicate New Year’s greetings? For correct spellings of worldwide greetings, visit Omniglot. For some languages, Omniglot also provides pronunciations. Gaertner-Johnston offers sample New Year messages such as:
“Thank you for your business [last] year. It has been a pleasure helping you reach your goals, and we look forward to contributing to your success in 2015. We wish you a prosperous and happy new year!”
If you’re looking for more examples of business thank you note messages, try the TinyPrints website. As the site says:
“A simple deed can create a loyal customer for life, and the [New Year is] the perfect time to share your gratitude and warm wishes with the people who do business with you all year long. And whether you own a small company or run a large corporation, a [thank you] card is one of the best ways to express appreciation towards clients and colleagues for their continued support.”
The same goes for employees and business partners, so send your New Years thank you notes today!
