Tipps and Tricks to go smoothly through the Christmas Season

Filed under: Interesting Posts — admin @ 9:47 am

It’s no secret – the hustle and bustle of Christmas can be a nightmare. From jostling through crowded malls, selecting the perfect gift and preparing your home for guests, the seasonal crunch sure isn’t easy. You’d better keep reading to keep your holiday to-do list on track!

1) Plan ahead. Calling all procrastinators and crazy-busy people, you’re being warned: start planning and start now. Let’s be honest here, dealing with your priorities and balancing your budget can be hard. Start preparing for this busy time of year a few months before and you’ll thank yourself later. Order custom holiday cards early so you aren’t tempted to purchase cheap and uninspiring store-bought versions. This way, if you miss anyone on your list you’ll still have time to pop something in the mail.

2) Make a list. And check it twice. Actually, make more than one list – separate them out into various categories so you understand what lies ahead. Hosting friends and family at your place? Then you’d better get ready for all the unforeseen details you may need to take care of. Get out your handy note pad and get to work!

3) Delegate. It’s that simple. Enlist the help of a friend, the kids or your spouse to ensure everything goes your way on the special occasion. Customize and order your Christmas Cards online and then leave the mailing to your wife or husband. Ensure the kids know that house cleaning duties are up to them. And then take a deep breath. When you learn to let go, you’ll learn that things will go much more smoothly.

You’re now ready to tackle the hectic christmas bustle. Get organized early and you’ll be able to delight in all the joys of the season.

3 Tips for Stress-Free Holiday Business Cards

Get started on your greeting cards


1. Start before December and save
If you’re ordering preprinted cards or need to send your letter to the printer, get your order in before the end of November and you’ll not only give yourself more time, but you’ll often save money with order-early holiday discounts.

2. Make a list and check it twice
Make a list of all associates to whom you’ll be sending cards and then order slightly more than that to allow for last-minute additions or errors in addressing, stamping, etc. Be sure to update and check your mailing list before sending, too.

3. Send early
Many people take time off near the holidays, so get your letters or cards in the mail in early December to make sure they arrive at your recipient’s office before he or she takes off for the holidays. It also means that YOUR holidays will be less stressful because you won’t be waiting until the last minute to send your cards.

Create Christmas Cards for your friends and family

It’s great fun to make your own Christmas cards and wonderful to receive handmade cards. And making Christmas cards isn’t tricky – you just need a sheet of card or even ordinary paper (if it’s quite thin, fold it twice to ensure it stands up).

The size of card or paper you start with will determine the ultimate size of your card. You can, of course, cut the piece of card smaller, but the advantage of using it the size you buy it is that the edges are perfectly straight.

When it comes to the image you put on the card, you could use a Christmas Sencils for the image, print the cards on your computer using one of your paintings that you’ve scanned in.

However there are also easier ways to get your Christmas Cards for friends and family: A couple of printing companies offer Christmas Cards for a really fair price.

Business Card Etiquette

Filed under: Interesting Posts — admin @ 7:04 am

When doing business abroad it is important to understand the local culture. Culture includes areas such as a country’s norms, values, behaviours etc. However, one area of culture that is important for the international business person is etiquette.

Understanding business etiquette allows you to feel comfortable in your dealings with foreign friends, colleagues, customers or clients. Knowing what to do and how to express yourself will help in building trust and create a good business relationship.

One aspect of etiquette that is of great importance internationally is the exchanging of business cards.

Unlike in North America or Europe where the business card has little meaning other than a convenient form of capturing essential personal details, in other parts of the world Business Cards play an important role.

Below you can find some examples how Business Cards are used in the different countries. Please comment and give suggestions on Business Card Etiquettes you know. Personally for me a good and cheap place to produce Business Cards or even get Business Cards free is Vistaprint.

General Business Card Etiquette Tips

. Business cards are an internationally recognised means of presenting personal contact details, so ensure you have a plentiful supply.
. Demonstrating good business etiquette is merely a means of presenting yourself as best you can. Failure to adhere to foreign business etiquette does not always have disastrous consequences.
. When travelling abroad for business it is advisable to have one side of your business card translated into the appropriate language.
. Business cards are generally exchanged at the beginning of or at the end of an initial meeting.
. Good business etiquette requires you present the card so the recipient’s language is face up.
. Make a point of studying any business card, commenting on it and clarifying information before putting it away.

Business Card Etiquette in China


. Have one side of your business card translated into Chinese using simplified Chinese characters that are printed in gold ink since gold is an auspicious colour.
. Ensure the translation is carried out into the appropriate Chinese dialect, i.e. Cantonese or Mandarin.
