Are Holiday Cards Still Relevant?

TheStationeryStudio.com conducted a survey in October 2017 using SurveyMonkey and received 417 responses.  The first question asked if respondents were planning to send holiday cards this year and 89% answered yes.

Seeing the trend in photo cards, the next question asked what kind of cards are you planning on sending.  Custom printed with photo(s) was the biggest response (49% of respondents) followed by pre-printed (boxed or individual) at 35%.

In the survey, The Stationery Studio asked other questions (see composite graph below) to learn more about people’s perceptions and reasons for sending or not sending holiday cards. 

According to the Greeting Card Association, The most popular seasonal cards are Christmas cards, with some 1.6 billion units purchased (including boxed cards).   So while people may have seen a decline in holiday cards in their mailbox, people still feel sending holiday cards is relevant.  “Sending holiday cards is still a wonderful way to stay connected to family and friends,” says Renee Redman, president of The Stationery Studio.  “Now more than ever, a holiday card is appreciated in the digital age we live in.”

About the Author: Carrie Brunner

Carrie Brunner grew up in a small town in northern New Brunswick. She studied chemistry in college, graduated, and married her husband one month later. They were then blessed with two baby boys within the first four years of marriage. Having babies gave their family a desire to return to the old paths – to nourish their family with traditional, homegrown foods; rid their home of toxic chemicals and petroleum products; and give their boys a chance to know a simple, sustainable way of life. They are currently building a homestead from scratch on two little acres in central Texas. There’s a lot to be done to become somewhat self-sufficient, but they are debt-free and get to spend their days living this simple, good life together with their five young children. Carrie writes mostly on provincial stories.
