Manners never go out of style, especially in the world of business--and now a bevy of companies offer this quick, easy way to stay in touch with your customers and contacts. You can find creative cards for every occasion, whether to follow up on a sales call, inform your clients of new products or gently prod for referrals.
Instead of saying it with flowers or time-consuming telephone conversations, business greeting cards do the talking in a memorable (and often humorous) way. Con-sider this genteel approach to collections, from Corporate Papers in Williamstown, Massachusetts: a delicately tinted photo of an antique shop, accompanied by the text: "Speaking of antiques, we found your `outstanding' invoice in our records."
