Customer service is key to the finance industry, so think about branded appreciation items for loyal clients. But don’t just focus on banks; also consider Realtors, mortgage brokers, insurance agencies and financial planners.

CASE STUDY

Thanks From the Bank

Thank-you cards make ideal promotional pieces for clients in the financial industry. They can be used to show appreciation to customers who have refinanced a loan, referred a friend, signed up for a new service, opened a new account and much more.

Recently, a bank used the Growing Appreciation thank-you card from Carlson Craft (asi/43920) with excellent results. Printed on thick, high-quality navy blue paper, the personalized cards were sent to bank customers who signed up for new business checking accounts. “It created brand awareness and reminded customers of the bank’s dedication to them,” says Linda Hiniker, national account manager for Carlson Craft.

Recently released, the Growing Appreciation cards offer distinctive style that has helped catch the attention of recipients and generated ROI for end-buyers, says Hiniker. “The front leaf design, embossed in gold, is a symbol of flourishing business relationships,” she says. “Clients can personalize the card with a company name or logo, or a custom imprint.”

Professionally printed thank-you cards with a logo or business name convey that your client pays attention to detail and truly values customers. “Consider suggesting that your clients have personalized thank-you cards on hand,” says Hiniker. “This way, they can respond immediately to business interactions and situations of all kinds as they arise.”
