Does anybody have a contact to buy Christmas cards in bulk? I want to send out one to each household I insure. I need somewhere in the neighborhood of 500. As I'm sure you already know. I am looking for inexpensive;) not cheap:rolleyes:

Dollar Tree has 16 cards and envelopes for $1, can't get much cheaper than that! They're not Hallmark cards by any means, but I'm not Bill Gates either!
If you hang around long enough, I bet you can get some cheap sexy ones in the Team Talk Help forum from a spammer!

Hey Monte, we get ours @ www.gallerycollection.com

Printed in the USA. I think we went for 750 pieces... Not sure of the exact cost but a nice card.

Another question.. I didn't opt for the personnalized Christmas cards. I bought some in bulk. I plan to sign each card. Now the question: Is it poor ettiqutte to place one of my business cards in with each card? They sure as heck cannot read my signature...

Why don’t you print them yourself? On your office printer? it may take some time to do the setup:rolleyes: but will look good and then just sign them for that personal feel …………………… :D

I probably should have done it that way, but I now own nearly 500 generic Christmas cards:rolleyes:

Can you lay them flat? Most printers well print any size paper??
But to answer your question yes put your business card inside :D

Maybe cut two 45* slots in the card to hold your business card ??

When I interned for a Commercial RE Broker in college, I had to personalize a bunch of generic cards by printing them, just like Jon suggested. I just used a normal deskjet print and Microsoft word... they came out very nice.

Absolutely throw a few business cards in there.

I will probably have carpel tunnel by the end of the day, but I am through about first 20 right now:rolleyes: What were you thinking I need to print on them?

Thanks fellas the business cards are going in.. As for the additional printing, I'll have to do that next year.

I feel your pain. We had to sign about 720 this year. Started in October though, 5 signatures on each card, so a business card was not an option for us.

We tried the printing one year, just didn't work, kept jamming up. I would stil use a mail merge to create mailing labels though.

Ok I know you did not ask me but here are my thoughts about “Holyday Cards” first off don’t send me a card with a copy of a letter on what you did in the past year. If I am a friend I should know what you did? And if you are in my family? don’t send me a photo of the Family standing in front of the Christmas tree first we are an ugly family, and I just saw you on Thanksgiving and I am going to see you on Christmas day so why the photo? I KNOW WHAT YOU LOOK LIKE………. STOP, the color printing on the card, gold, red or green? I am old; my eyes are weak, what is wrong with good old black printing, on a white card? OH all you people who live in So Cal why the card with the photo of a snowy trees or a home in the snow? Is that your home? Is that your front yard trees? And what is the etiquette on thronging them in the trash after the holydays? We have a 2’x3’ box full of old cards from past years that we will never look at again, can I just Sh#@ can them? Getting cards from my Insurance agent, Plummer, tree trimmer, electrician, and so on………… Cool as long as there is a business card inside I AM A GUY, I can never find their phone # when I need it…. as long as it is a business card is white with black writing with a big font so I can read it everybody has their email address, MySpace adders, website address ….. What is wrong with just phone #? Why would I go to my Plummer MySpace page?
Well that fell better now……………………. Man I am getting to be a very bitter old man

Too late, you've been receiving them for years and besides, this years are ready to mail and I bought these the other day for next year in case there is a price increase for 16 for $1.
And you thought Monte was cheap! I'll probably buy more, when Dollar Tree has their "After Christmas Sale" @ 50% off retail!

Last night while I was working on them, I wondered how many people would open their card, have my business card fall out on to the ground, and cuss me for putting it in there:rolleyes: BTW signing that many cards will really screw with your signature:o And make you go partially blind:rolleyes:
