Gift (wooden coasters in the “Achterhoeks” dialect) was appreciated. The colleague said goodbye, but had always had a lot of fun with the pronunciations in the Achterhoeks dialect. She is not from the area herself and said that she sometimes sat in the car practicing pronunciation. In any case, a worthy memento of a great collaboration. Thanks again.

Wooden Business Christmas Cards: The Warm Greeting of Wood

Houten kerstkaart 3D kerstboom

Christmas is a time of joy, love, and connection. It is also a period when companies have the opportunity to show their appreciation to customers, partners, and employees. One of the ways companies do this is by sending out Christmas cards. But why choose the traditional paper cards when you can stand out with something unique and durable? In this blog, we’re going to talk about corporate wooden Christmas cards and why they’re an excellent choice for your business.

The Beauty of Business Wooden Christmas Cards

Business wooden Christmas cards are a modern twist on an old tradition. They combine the warmth and charm of nature with the elegance of craftsmanship. Here are some reasons why they’re so special:

  1. Uniqueness: A corporate wooden Christmas card immediately stands out among the stack of paper cards that people receive during the holiday season. Its uniqueness attracts attention and leaves a lasting impression.
  2. Sustainability: Wooden Christmas cards are made from sustainable materials, which means they are long-lasting and have less impact on the environment than traditional paper cards. They can also be reused or even kept as keepsakes.
  3. Customizability: Wooden cards can be customized to match your company’s branding. You can add your logo, company colors, and a personal message, making them a powerful marketing tool.
  4. Artisanal look: Wooden Christmas cards exude craftsmanship. They are crafted with care and have an artisanal look that reflects an appreciation for detail and quality, making them perfect for businesses striving for excellence.
  5. Lasting Reminder: Another advantage of corporate wooden Christmas cards is that they make a lasting memory. Instead of ending up in a drawer or trash can, wooden cards are often kept and even displayed. They can serve as a decoration during the holiday season and in some cases, even as an annual tradition. When your business partners or employees pull out the card again the following year, it reminds them of your business and the positive relationship you share. It’s a subtle way to strengthen ties with your business network and keep your business top-of-mind.

Eco-friendliness of wooden Christmas cards

At a time when sustainability and environmental awareness are key, it’s important to think about your company’s carbon footprint. Wooden Christmas cards fit perfectly into this philosophy of eco-friendliness. Here’s why:

  1. Less waste: Unlike paper Christmas cards, wooden cards don’t generate waste. They are biodegradable and do not cause any additional burden on landfills. At a time when sustainability and environmental awareness are becoming increasingly important, corporate wooden Christmas cards are an excellent choice. Wood is a biodegradable material, which means that your cards are not only beautiful, but also environmentally friendly.
  2. Positive brand image: Showing your commitment to the environment can improve your company’s image. Customers and partners appreciate companies that make conscious choices to protect the environment. You can reassure your business partners that the cards are made responsibly and that your company is committed to reducing its carbon footprint. This can not only create goodwill with your current business relationships, but also attract new customers who prefer eco-friendly companies.
  3. PEFC label: the wood we use for our Christmas cards is PEFC certified, which means that the wood comes from sustainably managed forests. In addition, it also meets the E1 standard.

Adaptability and Branding

One of the biggest advantages of corporate wooden Christmas cards is their customizability. You can fully match them to your company’s branding. Here are some ways you can do this:

  1. Company logo: Add your company logo to the card to reinforce your brand. Your logo can be engraved on the card.
  2. Personal message: Write a personal message for your customers, partners and employees. This shows your appreciation and makes the card even more special. One of the biggest advantages of corporate wooden Christmas cards is the ability to add a personal message. While digital cards are quickly forgotten, a handwritten message on a wooden card sticks with the recipient. The fact that you went to the trouble of writing a message by hand shows your genuine appreciation and care for your business relationships. When writing your message, you can use the opportunity to look back on the past year and look ahead to what the next year will bring. You can express your appreciation for the collaboration and the successes that have been achieved. A personal touch in combination with the unique wooden card will certainly be appreciated.
  3. Extra details: Add extra details such as a stamp with your company name on the envelope, a ribbon, or even a wooden ornament. These details make the map even more memorable.

Customizable wooden Christmas cards allow you to convey a powerful message while reinforcing your brand. They offer a unique opportunity to present your business in a way that is unforgettable.

Applications for Business Wooden Christmas Cards

Wooden Christmas cards are versatile and can be used in a variety of ways in business settings. Here are some applications you can think of:

  1. Strengthen customer relationships: Send personalized wooden Christmas cards to your customers to thank them for their support throughout the year. This strengthens relationships and shows your appreciation.
  2. Celebrate partnerships: If you’re partnering with other businesses, send wooden Christmas cards to celebrate and strengthen the collaboration. It shows respect for your partnership.
  3. Appreciating employees: Let your employees know that you appreciate their hard work and dedication by giving them wooden Christmas cards. This contributes to a positive working environment.
  4. Networking and prospects: Use wooden Christmas cards as a way to connect with potential customers and business associates. A well-designed map can attract attention and open doors.

Tips for Sending Business Christmas Cards

Sending business wooden Christmas cards requires some planning and organization. Here are some tips to get you started:

  1. Start early: Start planning and ordering your cards early to make sure you can ship them on time.
  2. Number of cards: Decide how many tickets you need and order on time. It’s a good idea to have extra cards on hand for last-minute shipments.
  3. Collect addresses: Collect the addresses of your customers, partners, and employees well in advance to avoid delays.
  4. Handwritten notes: If you have the time, write handwritten notes on the cards to add a personal touch.
  5. Shipment scheduling: Plan the shipment carefully so that the cards arrive at the right time. Be aware of the crowds at postal services during the holidays.
  6. Follow-up: After sending the cards, consider following up via email or phone to express your appreciation and strengthen relationships.
  7. Outsource: If desired, we can also arrange the shipment of your business Christmas cards for you. Then you don’t have to worry about it at all.

Conclusion

Business wooden Christmas cards offer a unique and eco-friendly way to show your appreciation to customers, partners, and employees during the holiday season. They combine the warmth of wood with the power of adaptability, making them a powerful tool for strengthening your brand image.

Eine sehr schöne Wanddekoration! Sieh richtig gut aus, vor allem auch wegen dem Schattenwurf, der durch die Abstandshalter erzeugt wird. Die Weltkarte ist gut verpackt und schnell geliefert worden. Die Montage an die Wand war dank der Schablone problemlos. Sehr gut gefallen hat uns, dass man die Kontinente andübeln konnte, da Ankleben bei unserem Lehmputz nicht gehalten hätte.

Original gift for an anniversary at work

Do you have a colleague who will soon be celebrating an anniversary because he or she has been with the company for so many years? Or do you, as colleagues, want to congratulate the owners of your company on their anniversary? And are you looking for a personal and original gift? Then you’ve come to the right place!

Work Anniversary Gift

What exactly is an anniversary? Wikipedia states: “an anniversary is a festive commemoration of an event, such as … employment in a company or the formation of an association or business which has been established for a certain period of time’.

Many companies surprise their employees when they have been employed for 25 or 40 years. You probably know the gold watch, a cheque and a bunch of flowers as an extra.

Perhaps that seems like something from earlier times. Nowadays, the job market has become much more flexible. It is much more common for people to move on to a new environment and possibly a different position over time. More and more people also have a flexible job. Research by Statistics Netherlands shows that on average one in three employees has been working for the same employer for ten years or more. This differs per sector, with the government usually taking the longest.

Original gift for an anniversary at work

With an increasingly tight labor market, companies that can offer their employees something extra in various areas have an advantage. For example, there are companies that are already celebrating an anniversary with a five-year employment contract. That’s definitely a good idea if you have a young workforce. Of course, you can transfer your employees an extra amount of money on top of their salary. There is a chance that it will be added to the general expanses wallet.

If you still want to make it a special moment, that someone will remember for a long time, come up with something original. Or, for example, ask your employees to come up with a nice idea that they think is very special and then make money available for it. Maybe someone has always wanted to make a special trip, do a special photo shoot or go skydiving? If you make that possible for your employee, you really give someone an unforgettable gift!

Company anniversary gift

In addition to celebrating employee anniversaries, you can also celebrate the organization’s anniversary. Some companies have been around for many tens or even hundreds of years. But even if your company has only been around for five years (think of start-ups, for example), you as colleagues can surprise your management or owner with a personal gift.

Gift from employees

A good example is the gift of all employees that we made for the 25th anniversary of the company Triview.

Present for 25th aniversary of company

The thirty or so employees wanted to surprise the owners of the Triview company with a truly personal gift. They thought of a 3D plaque for the wall with the faces of the two directors on it and a special text on the occasion of the anniversary.

We did some brainstorming and thought it would be nice to incorporate the company’s logo instead of a square or rectangular plaque.

This is how we ended up with a more triangular final design. We then started working with the photos we received from the two directors and made two portrait designs of them. We cut the faces from 6 mm thick wood with our laser machine.

The employees also wanted to add a text to the anniversary gift. To do this, we used the font of Triview’s corporate identity. Very nice for recognizability. We engraved the text in the wooden edge of the logo, which we made from 9 mm thick wood.

The numbers for the years under the faces are cut from wood of 6 mm thickness. Due to the different thicknesses of the wood, the faces and the two years lie in the logo, as it were. That gives a very nice depth effect.

The two colours used “light oak” and “rosewood” fit very well into the interior of the business premises. After discussing where the plaque would hang and the space there is for something on the wall, we came up with the size of 50 cm high and 50 cm wide.

See the end result here:

Anniversary gift 25 years of business

The gift from the employees was a very big surprise for the two owners: “Very cool! Very, very beautiful”. They were very happy with it. A wonderful personal gift for this special moment.

Gift 100th anniversary family business

The employees of construction company Roelofs & Haase were looking for a unique gift for the management on the occasion of the 100th anniversary of the family business. On our website they had found a nice example of the Triview portrait and they were curious if we could make an broad version for them. The intention was to display the four generations in black and gold, so that the portrait matches the interior of the company.

We started making some designs of the gift. In mutual consultation, we have come to a wonderful end result. The four generations are depicted on it. Underneath the portraits, we engraved the names of all the board members and then executed them in gold. The specially designed logo on the occasion of the 100th anniversary has also been given a place on the portrait.

The wooden portrait is 110 cm wide and 35 cm high and comes in black and gold.

We received this reaction after the staff party where the portrait was handed over to the current director: “How incredibly cool!! We are very happy with it. Great work! Attached a few photos and a video of our anniversary gift, they were very happy with it! Thanks again!! “

The portrait has been given a nice place in the business premises of Roelofs & Haase. WE hope they will enjoy it for many years to come and when the next generation is at the helm in 25 years’ time, we would love to hear from you again for an update of the family portrait!

3D Logo company on the wall

Another great anniversary gift idea is to have your company’s logo carved out of wood in 3D. For example, hang the logo at the reception of your company or as a beautiful wall decoration in your office (garden).

To give you an idea of how it works, we have also carved our own logo out of wood. Below you can see our logo. We use this online on our own website, other sales channels and all our social media channels. And in the print version on cards, leaflets and of course our stationery.

We edited our logo in the digital drawing program for our laser machine. Then we started cutting the letters out of 9 mm thick wood. We cut out the white “P” and the white mount separately to create more depth in our logo. We attached these two parts to the orange-colored panel. This is a total of 18 mm thick.

3D logo on the wall

To approximate the original colors of our logo, we used three stain colors from our color palette, namely blackwash, whitewash and teak. Pretty successful, if we do say so ourselves! And to make it easy to hang the wooden logo on the wall, we have attached all parts to a white panel.

Your logo in 3D on the wall

If you would also like to have your logo carved out of wood, please send us your logo directly by email or contact us . We are happy to discuss your wishes and the possibilities with you.

You can choose from wood with all the colors of stain that you will find on our color palette. If you prefer to have it made in other colors, we can also use paint. The difference in the use of stain or paint is mainly in the visibility of the wood grains. You will always see these grains with stain and they usually disappear under paint. As a result, wood with stain always looks a bit more natural than wood with paint.

We can attach your logo to a wooden backplate, but if you prefer to put the individual parts directly on the wall, that is of course also possible. You can attach these parts directly to the wall using double-sided tape or mounting sealant/mounting adhesive. You’ll get a template included, so you know exactly where to attach which part to the wall. That is very easy to do.

Just take a look at these examples for inspiration. For example, we made the logo of WeKnowtice as a gift for their five-year anniversary. This is equipped with a stand, so that it can be placed on a cabinet.

And for the 100th anniversary of Timmerfabriek de Jong , we made this beautiful wooden gift from their logo.

Icons for the wall

In addition to your logo, you can also think of other distinctive symbols of your company.

A global distributor of life science ingredients, specializing in food, pharmaceuticals, personal care and pet nutrition, asked us to carve the four icons of their product groups out of wood. They wanted to hang them near the elevators, so that everyone who comes out of the elevator immediately sees these recognizable icons.

We received the bar below that they can find on their website.

In this bar, the icons are shown in white. Because they were also going to be placed on a white wall, we proposed to make them in the colors of the beam. It was a joint search for the right colors of paint, but we succeeded.

On the back of the four icons, we placed spacers to make the whole thing stand off the wall and create a floating effect. See the end result here.

icons on the wall

We received this response: “Everyone loves the icons! Thanks for a great job!”.

In-house design based on the company’s products

Of course, we can also create a custom design for you that completely suits your company and your products.

For the 30th anniversary of a Kärcher dealer who sells, rents, maintains and installs all kinds of cleaning systems, the employees wanted to offer the owners a special keepsake. They asked us to help them come up with an original gift for the wall in the company building. They themselves thought of the building, something with the products or the buses.

We received the logo designed especially for the company’s 30th anniversary and studied their website and product line. After some brainstorming together, we came up with the following design for their anniversary gift.

gift anniversary company

The base is a silhouette of a pressure washer made of rustic oak. We have engraved a photo of the company building with some parked company cars. We cut the specially designed logo for the 30th anniversary from rosewood and attached it to the pressure washer. Reaction after receipt: “Really beautiful!”.

Got excited?

Would you also like to have a personal portrait made as a gift for your company’s anniversary? Here you will find all the information about creatng a custom portrait. And here you will find many more examples (click on Company anniversary).

If you would like to brainstorm with us about your options, please feel free to contact us. We are happy to help you!

The service is fantastic but being in Australia hasn’t helped with distribution (corona delay). Did I tell you I saw one of your maps in a “Grand Designs” program with Kevin McCleod?

Yes, I have received it but have not hung it up as yet. I will endeavour to do it soon and hope it will work well. The pieces look great. Done it….. and it looks great. I used the strongest double sided tape we have here – and I hope this will last. First I glued the spacers on the land pieces. And then I took double sided tape (not the foam one for mirrors but an indoor and outdoor one that is like a double sided duct tape). So far so good.

Ordered the rosewood stained XL map. It looks amazing on our wall. Be careful to put the wall mount pieces exactly in the center of their marks or it won’t fit. One of the euroasia mounts is slightly off so it doesnt sit perfectly but you can’t tell and still holding up well. We’re very very happy with it. It’s wonderful. Met all of our expectations.

My husband and I fell in love with this map as soon as we both had seen it! Bianca made the process so easy and because of other reviews I trusted her judgement on what would look best. I sent a picture of our foyer and we were provided mock ups regarding sizing, borders or no borders; we went with the color suggested. We were kept informed every step of the way. So happy we would thank you to create such a beauty for our home. Thank you for making it so easy! My in-laws have been over since it was hung and absolutely LOVED the map.

The map is beautiful. Because we hope to transport it to our next home as well, we did not use the screw mount for the larger pieces, which left us with a very difficult time getting the pieces to stick. Finally, after a few days and hours, it wasn’t construction adhesive, but Krazy Glue & Gorilla Glue that did the trick. It fits the space perfect & is the talking point of our living room. EVERYONE has commented on it! Thanks so much for making our home much homier 🙂
