Yuletide Greetings Can Linger Beyond the Holidays

January 15, 2003 · by DesignIntelligence

Because a lot of our cards come from designers, we like to review those received over the recent holiday season and rank our favorites.

Though the exchange of Christmas or New Year’s greetings can be traced to the 14th or 15th century, their regular exchange as we know it has been taking place for just over 100 years. What were once simple wood block prints with hand writing have certainly evolved, as we at Greenway can attest. Because a lot of our cards come from designers, we like to review those received over the recent holiday season and rank our favorites. From calendars to three-dimensional renderings of projects, from staff designs to off-the-shelf cards to notices of charitable donations, a number of the greetings we received were truly inspired and thought provoking. All were very nice, though we continue to be surprised at the conservatism some industry-leading firms continue to display in their holiday card selection. Listed below, in no particular order, are our favorite cards this season. We remain grateful for the remembrances and good wishes so many friends and clients sent to us this year.
