Be different: Send your Christmas cards in July

christmas in july

Want to stand out in a crowded marketplace?

Here’s an idea that will accomplish exactly that.  How many Christmas cards to you receive at your home or business between Thanksgiving and New Years?  Lots.  How many do you receive in July?  None.

I tell my clients that when everyone is zigging, you gotta zag.

If you’re a business, consider sending out your holiday cards in July.  I guarantee it will stand out and get noticed. I found this image at as an emailable card.  Contact your printer and customize a version for your business and mail it.  You have the next 4 months to get this done.  Dare to be different.

When everyone is sweating in the summer, anything with a holiday theme will definitely make people smile and leave an impression.

  1. That’s a great idea for those of us who didn’t finish sending out the cards at the “right” time. Thanks for the idea!
