Here is a card I sent out to vets using send Out cards - got me some nice jobs. i used SOC because there aren't a ton of vets around (rural area) so it wasn't worth getting a bunch printed up.

I like the font. Do you have to input the vets addresses into SOC? Or does it pull from your database?

I just uploaded a list through SOC and tagged them as vets. Font was on SOC - you can actually use your own handwriting but mine sucks so bad I can't even read it! I always use SOC for small runs of stuff. One thing I was going to do was to take a pic of the customers actual house and use it a thank you card. Would work great if your nicely lettered van was parked out front. I haven't been using my SOC lately but I really should.

I have to look into SOC. Never tried it.

I am running The Customer Factor. I would like to enter my info into one location and not two or three. So I will investigate if I can merge info to send out printed material. If I can upload it from there to SOC, that would be cool too.

Thought
Will it be a picture of their carpet on the card?
Thought about doing that with oriental rugs - taking a pic of their clean rug and using it as a 1 year reminder card "does your rug still look like this?" kinda thing.

It does not flow well and has sort of a negative connotation about goodbyes, etc. Better off with something positive. Like - we look forward to serving you in the future.
Must be a regional thing. I don't read it that way. I see it as I am sad to leave you, but it doesn't have to be like that, as I am a phone call away.

I will give it some more thought.

I prefer a blank card with a hand written note. That will be more impressive and meaningful to the client.
