Sending New Year cards to clients helps keep your business on their minds, and it’s just a nice thing to do. Sentiments for client cards usually include expressions of appreciation for their business, and/or wishes of success for the upcoming year. Make it genuine, keep your brand voice in mind, and remember to sign it with a “Your friends at [company name],” “The team at [company name],” or your name, if you’re not sending the card on behalf of your office or you’re an office of one.
Here are a couple business-y messages to get your word-generating wheels spinning:
Any of these messages stand pretty well on their own, and using them in a design that doesn’t incorporate photos eliminates the need to round up the entire office and have them wave at the camera. It also looks super profesh.
Tip: You can easily adjust any PicMonkey template to jibe with your brand. Enter the hex values for each of your brand’s colors on the Graphic and Text palettes, or in the Background Color field in the Edits tab.

Of all the holidays, New Year’s is the one most filled with hope. If the last year has been good for us, we feel like we’re on a roll and look forward to the new year being even better. If the last year has been crappy, we’re glad for it to be over and think “next year can’t possibly be worse.”
We’re often wrong in both cases, of course. But never mind that. No harm can come from greeting the new year with a positive attitude – in fact, quite the opposite. A good attitude often leads to good results.
