Holiday Card Lingo

Posted by on Nov 14, 2013 in Resources | No Comments

It’s that time of year again! Time to start thinking about the dreaded holiday card… What will you say? How will you word it? How do you strike the perfect balance between ‘warm wishes’ and ‘thank you for your business’?

We’ve done a lot of these over the years and they always start with creating a word list. Generally that list lives in a sketchbook that is dusty and forgotten by the time the next year rolls around. This year, we’re streamlining the process with a master holiday word list.

So, here you go. Every descriptor you could ever want to use on your holiday card. Happy composing, and of course, have a joyous, carefree holiday filled with happiness, cheer, and prosperity!
